About me

Hi and welcome!

I have to wonder how I managed to find a job where I can work with so many wonderful people each day, to create a ceremony that is truly memorable, at such important, and sometimes challenging, times in their lives.

Whether it is a wedding, civil partnership, commitment ceremony, funeral, naming ceremony or any other type of celebration, each one of my ceremonies is unique. Why? Because everyone has a different story to tell and I want to capture the individual and unique story.

If you're after a casual ceremony, or something a little more serious, we can turn your special occasion into a masterpiece that you'll remember forever.

The options are endless and the choices are yours. Creating memorable moments is my ultimate aim.

Give me a call and we can discuss all your ideas. Perhaps I can also offer some others that you might not yet have thought of.

I'm looking forward to working with you!

My services


Getting married? How exciting! I would love to be part of your special day! Let's work together to create something special that will stay in your hearts and memories forever.

Civil partnership / commitment ceremonies

Civil Partnerships, Commitment Ceremonies and Renewals of Vows are another way in which you can publicly show your love for each other. Let me help you create a loving ceremony that captures your innermost feelings and celebrates your commitment to each other.

Naming ceremonies

Naming a child? Or, perhaps you have changed your own name? Let's celebrate with a party! This is a fantastic time to get family and friends together to share the next stage in your life's journey. Together we can write a ceremony that captures your future plans and/or your journey so far.


A funeral is not only a chance to say goodbye to a loved one but it's also an opportunity to share memories, celebrate their life and reflect on the influence they've had on the lives of others. I would be honoured to help you find 'just the right words' to capture your thoughts and memories at this difficult time.

My wife and I chose Annette Richards to perform our civil ceremony and I must say we were pleasantly surprised at the amazing service we received.

The level of commitment from Annette to get everything exactly the way we wanted was second to none. And the follow up service we also received after the ceremony was both excellent and un-expected.

The whole ceremony was amazing and Annette is such a lovely person who put us both at ease throughout the entire process.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Annette to anyone as she clearly cares about her clients and giving them all they could ask for with their ceremonies, whilst making them feel completely at ease.

Annette is a beautiful person. I would recommend her to anyone wanting loving, caring and individualised ceremonies. - Marjory

Annette was amazing at the naming ceremony. She even indulged us by adding dinosaurs, our child's favourite, on the certificate! She was professional and warm. She had great ideas to make the day special - Heidi

Annette is very knowledgeable and wonderful to work with, couples would be crazy not to have you celebrate their special day - Joe and Maria
