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, 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!
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.
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 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.
Annette truly went above and beyond for us! We had multiple meetings coming up to the wedding day and she worked so well with my partner and I, despite us being a bit slack getting our things together! She gave us nudges at all the right times and gently reminded us of what needed to be done. She was extremely organised and helpful. Even at the practice session she was there before everyone else! On the day I turned up an hour early and, although I have no idea how everything was set up, I have a strong feeling she played a big part. Our vow cards were printed on beautiful paper that looked lovely in our photos. She sent off the official documentation very promptly and we had it back within the week. Excellent service!

Myself and hubby are overwhelmed with Annette's professional friendly kind service from start to finish Annette made my daughter and friends and family and godparents feel comfortable at all times I couldn't be any happier, I would highly recommend Annette to everyone
Could not think of a better person to be a Celebrant at a wedding. Nobody would come close to Annette's kindness and professionalism. You would not regret having her there on your special day!
I would like to thank Annette for her hard work and dedication in making my husbands memorial service an impressive and memorable day. Her personal touches and sensitivity ensured that his memory was honoured with respect and dignity.
Annette was able to take my vision for the service and turn it into a beautiful reality. The flexibility and expert knowledge that Annette possesses, allows her to deliver a beautiful, creative ceremony.
Where do I begin with Annette??? She's like that amazing, doting mother who won't rest till every detail of your magic day is just that, magical. From the start Annette was helpful and creative. She went over all the required details professionally before sitting back and letting us ramble for what felt like forever about all the lovey dovey details of our beginnings. Annette is amazingly flexible considering we'd gone from an April wedding to a November wedding in the space of a few weeks. With the shortened time frame, Annette still produced a ceremony that was nothing shy of spectacular. She's attentive and included so much corny information that perfectly reflected mine and my husbands life and interests. There's no better person I could recommend for your special day than this amazing woman. She was so perfect in fact that we've already booked her in for our vow renewal...PS. She's also the type of woman you'll want to stay in contact with and catch up for coffee long after your wedding day.

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.- Stephen & Kimiko
Annette is a beautiful person. I would recommend her to anyone wanting loving, caring and individualised ceremonies. - Marjory
Annette is very knowledgeable and wonderful to work with, couples would be crazy not to have you celebrate their special day - Joe & Maria
