Occasions4U offer traditional, contemporary and Christian marriage ceremonies, and do not perform Pagan, New Age or anti-Christian ceremonies.
As your celebrant, Edwina will work in consultation with you to create a bespoke (customised) ceremony that reflects your values, ideals, beliefs and what you both want for your special day. I take pride in being able to say that no two ceremonies are the same.
Renewal of Vows
A renewal of vows ceremony is usually similar in form and content to a marriage ceremony, but without the legal parts. However, it may also reflect the values you have acquired as you worked together to arrive where you are now.
I encourage the couple to use their original vows if possible, or create new vows that reflect their lives and experiences over the years.
A baby naming ceremony is the civil alternative to the religious baptism or christening, although it does not take the place of one.
A baby naming is not a religious ceremony but it is an affirmation by the parents and the commitment of family to raise the child in the values and beliefs of the family unit. There is also opportunity for the wider family to make a commitment to encourage and support the family in this process. Godparents or sponsors are welcomed as part of the ceremony.
A commitment ceremony is normally similar in form and content to a marriage ceremony. Terminology will be different, depending on the couple. This is usually viewed as a ceremony for the LBGTI community but can also be used by couples who reject the traditional concept of marriage but want to make a public statement of unity.
We welcome enquiries from the LBGTI community who wish to use the Commitment ceremony to acknowledge the union of the couple.
