Rebecca Vincent Humanist Wedding Celebrant
Congratulations to you both on your forthcoming wedding, and hopefully I can help make it a fabulous and very special day.
My name is Rebecca Vincent, and I have been conducting non-religious weddings, as an accredited member of the British Humanist Association, since 2006.
I live in Oxfordshire, and apart from covering Oxfordshire and neighbouring counties, I am very happy to travel further afield, including overseas.
My style is very much about working with couples to ensure their ceremony is exactly how they would like it to be – each ceremony is bespoke as no two couples are the same. We always meet up to get to know each other and have an initial chat about your wedding ceremony – this can be done via Skype or telephone if you happen to be overseas. Then over time, between us we create a unique ceremony, both in terms of the content and logistics… which evolves into a personal ceremony script that I write just for the two of you. Closer to your wedding day we usually meet at the venue to check what the ceremony will “look like”, and then on your Wedding Day I conduct your ceremony.
Although each wedding ceremony is unique, many couples choose to include something about their history, music, readings by family and friends, thoughts on marriage, vows & commitments, ring exchange.... and sometimes other things such as hand-fasting, acknowledging their cultural traditions, singing ... the list is endless!
Humanist Weddings can take place in any location and at any time. I am used to conducting them both indoors and outdoors, including in private homes, village halls, hotels, barns, castles & chateaus, marquees, fields and beside rivers. I have conducted weddings from a very intimate ceremony on the banks of the river Loire where there were only 5 people, through to many large weddings with over a hundred guests … and with styles varying from formal to very informal.
I love being part of so many couples’ special days ... do please contact me to have a chat.
