Civil Wedding Ceremonies, Renewal of Vows and Civil Partnership Ceremonies performed by our Wedding Celebrant have exceptional emotional significance. Our team of Wedding Celebrants at White Rose Ceremonies® deliver unique and personal ceremonies from the heart that reflect your individuality.
You can be as romantic and creative in designing your ceremony as you wish. White Rose Ceremonies® will help you design and deliver the ceremony of your dreams.
These wedding ceremonies have been held in gardens, on boats, in castles, at home, on beaches, up mountains, in fields and on the banks of beautiful rivers. You can hold your ceremony in the moonlight, at sunrise or sunset, or at any time of day that suits you.
You can light candles, scatter rose petals, release balloons or doves, have a ring ceremony, hand ceremony or sand ceremony – there are many wonderful and inspiring options for you to choose from.
Your Wedding Ceremony can be as dignified as a church service, but with all or some of the religious elements replaced by words and music that have truly significant meaning for you.
And so, you can have your Wedding Ceremony wherever you want – if it is led by a Celebrant. A Registrar will not marry you outside unless it is approved in a licensed venue. As with all council led ceremonies, there are particular limitations on the time, place and content of wedding ceremonies conducted by Registrars.
If you are happy to separate the legal administration with your wonderful wedding ceremony, then you can have the wedding ceremony that you have always dreamt of.
In order to complete the legal formalities before a Wedding Ceremony or Civil Partnership Ceremony, you need to book an appointment at your local Register Office. This is a simple, quick and reasonably cheap process, you just need to ensure you have two witnesses with you.
Once you have completed the legal formalities, your Wedding Ceremony can take place anywhere and there is no restriction on time.

And here are some more from the lovely couples that we have worked with:
“You both made our day SO SO special. At last we’ve had a chance to sit and look at our photos. It’s lovely to see all the moments we didn’t see, whilst it all went on seamlessly around us! Rebecca, we love you! You gave us all of yourself, and we could see that you meant every word. David, thank you for taking such beautiful photos, so that we can look back and remember the best day of our lives! I especially love the one you caught of me and my dad. I was so pleased he walked me down the aisle. You absolutely made our day. We would love to meet up again. Rebecca, you’ll always be special to me. Love Always.”
Debra & Gary
“From the moment I met Rebecca, I knew White Rose Ceremonies were exactly what we needed. We had been looking for a way to have a ceremony which was personal and really captured who we were as a couple – I honestly do not think there would have been anyone who could do it better!
Rebecca and David spent the time to come and meet Simon and I at our home to get to know us better and tell us more about what they could offer, they spent time working with us to make sure we got the ceremony we wanted. After our last visit we were both so thrilled (and excited) to see how our Ceremony would turn out. Rebecca did not disappoint and we have since had sooo many comments about how beautiful and personal our ceremony was. But more importantly both Simon and I believed everything that was said in the ceremony – there were no restrictions to what we could or couldn’t, must or must not have – which resulted in a ceremony which could not have been any more personal.
We are looking forward to lighting our candle and reading our ceremony script every year to remember our lovely day, who knows we may even have a vow renewal ceremony in 5 or 10 years – and we would definitely want White Rose Ceremonies to be leading the way!”
Harlee & Simon
“The service we received at White Rose Ceremonies was absolutely fantastic. Rebecca and her team were extremely supportive, whilst at the same time kind, caring and patient. My new husband and I cannot thank Rebecca, Pam and Dave enough for giving us the ceremony we have always hoped for and it was perfect. This was thanks to all of their time and dedication in tailoring it to how we wanted it. I would highly recommend White Rose to anyone looking for a top class and customised service.”
Sarah & Josh
“The perfect addition to our Wedding:
Planning a wedding is no easy task however our fortunate find in Rebecca helped us no end and it is an absolute pleasure to be able to give something back for all of the kindness and time she showed us.
From the get go Rebecca was inviting, friendly and we immediately felt at ease. Having no idea where to begin, she met with us and provided us with the resources and time to go through our personal vows, poems, gestures that express our love and readings for our friends and family. Once we had chosen from her selection and our own, Rebecca met with us again at our family home to finalise our script ready for the big day. She spent as much time with us as we needed to ensure we were happy. Nothing seemed too much to ask!
Shortly before the wedding Rebecca kindly invited us and both of our families to her home as our wedding venue did not hold rehearsals. Providing lunch and setting up her back garden to match the layout of her venue – we were incredibly touched and this certainly helped to settle the nerves!
Our wedding day was in every way perfect and this would not have been the case without the huge part Rebecca played in this. We wanted the freedom to say what we wanted during the service without being constrained by rules and Rebecca provided this to us. She made our service personal, touching and from the heart no doubt due to the fact that she took the time and effort to get to know us and our family. Sadly my father was very unwell during this time and Rebecca had suggested various back up plans for the start of the ceremony depending on how well he was on the day meaning we were able to adapt the walk down the aisle until the very last minute. This was such an important part for us and we will never forget the kindness Rebecca showed to my father before during and after the wedding.
Shortly after the wedding my father sadly passed away and the only person we wanted to conduct the service for his funeral was Rebecca. Once again she conducted a perfect service for our family and friends and we are forever grateful for the contribution she played for both of these very different life events.
We are so incredibly lucky to have been able to have Rebecca as the celebrant at our wedding. The day truly would not have been the same without her. We cannot possibly recommend Rebecca and her team enough.”

“White Rose Ceremonies have been one of our favourite wedding suppliers to work with. We’ve enjoyed our planning sessions as Rebecca and David have taken the time to get to know us and provided a personalised script unique to us. There have been lots of laughs along the way too, they’re great fun! On the day the blessing was everything we could have hoped for and our guests commented on how touching the special words were. Thank you for helping us to make the day we’d dreamt of.”
Heather & Geoff
“We had the most amazing day which was made all the more special by your lovely personality and beautiful ceremony. So many people commented on how different and fantastic it was, and where did we find you!! I’m so happy that I did “find” you, because from the moment that we met you, I knew we were going to have a very special day! And we lost count of the number of people who said it was the best wedding they had ever been to! David’s photo’s are great, and it was very kind of him to take them for us. We especially love the ones at the end where Harland is cuddling you, and not me!! It made us roar with laughter!”
Lynne & Harland
“Words cannot express the happiness that we felt on our wedding day. This was down to what can only be described as the most perfect, magical, meaningful ceremony from Rebecca. Rebecca is honestly one of the nicest people we have ever met and we truly clicked with from the word go. All our guests loved her and it was so nice to feel so at ease on such an important day. We’re trying to think of another celebration just so we can use her again. We mustn’t forget her lovely husband who took some incredible pictures, which we’ll be using in our album. The best money spent on our wedding by far, unbelievable value for money! Thank you so much!”
Brittany & Adam
“Rebecca, we had a wonderful evening, everything about it was just perfect. You were a great help all the way though and I was confident that you would be the right celebrant from that very first phone call. The service was exactly what we wanted you even added to it by dropping the rings!! You And Dave are fantastic people and made what could have been very stressful, delightful even laughing at Andy’s bad and continuous jokes! Thank you so much and Dave, your photos are brilliant, a real bonus. Thank you to both of you.”
Jo & Andy B
“THANK YOU for doing such an amazing job on our wedding day. We absolutely loved it and we must say that the ceremony was probably our favourite part of the day. It felt so personal and right for us and the reaction we got from our friends and family was simply brilliant. Thank you also for suggesting a sing along as people loved it! We were initially seriously stuck as to how we should get married before we were recommended you and I can honestly say it wouldn’t have been as special otherwise. We loved the whole process of piecing our script together and you were always such a pleasure to deal with. Thank you Rebecca, we really feel so lucky to have had you so involved in our special day.”
Joanna & Andrew S
“Julia and I were married near Oundle in mid-September 2015. We first met Rebecca in February and knew immediately that we had chosen the perfect person to act as our celebrant. Rebecca is caring, enthusiastic, friendly, calm (important for the groom on the big day!) and was very attentive to our wishes for the day. Her bubbly and contagiously cheerful personality came across immediately, and we both greatly enjoyed chatting (and often laughing) our way through our numerous pre-wedding meetings while we got all the details for our ceremony squared away. The pack provided was excellent as it offers such a wide range of options to allow you to really create a very personal ceremony. She also encouraged and helped us to work in our own unique, additional input in a way that ensured the ceremony flowed perfectly. We wholeheartedly recommend Rebecca and her team as the perfect choice for any wedding. Thank you so much for doing a wonderful job for us.”
Dan & Julia
“Rebecca at White Rose Ceremonies was the perfect choice for us. I had no doubt that Rebecca was able to deliver an outstanding ceremony. Right from the very first meeting Rebecca was attentive, knowledgeable, thoughtful of our needs, considerate and most of all passionate about what she does and this certainly shows in the delivery of her ceremonies. Our wedding would not have been the glorious day it was without Rebecca’s help and input. The preparation of the script for the ceremony was a painless process with Rebecca helping us to determine what the real meaning of certain passages were, she gave us great detail on how the whole process would fit together. On the actual day, Rebecca made us feel so at ease, prompting us when we needed it, laughter, smiles and looks of reassurance. Rebecca has found a unique style of delivery that demands attention in a way that you want to listen to her. The whole process was faultless and I would recommend Rebecca and White Rose Ceremonies to anyone who wants to make their day even more special. Thank you again for everything.”
Mark & Brent
“Thank you so much for hosting our wedding ceremony recently at Downing College, The readings and passages were all poignant, thoughtful, bold and funny, all relevant to our extended family and ourselves. Your friendly confident manner was perfect for our big day and you connected with everyone just as you did with us on our first phone enquiry. You delivered a touching ceremony that was so memorable our guests and we still talk about it. From the moment we met you we knew you were a safe pair of hands and so it turned out. Thanks for calming our nerves on more than one occasion when your worldly experience was invaluable. You shaped the most memorable day of our lives and we have been around a while! Thanks again – all our best to David too!”

“Rebecca Waldron married Jack and I on the 3rd of April 2015 at the Old Hall, Ely. We first found Rebecca through a simple Google search after becoming frustrated with the lack of flexibility of other marriage services. From the first phone call Rebecca was helpful, informative and efficient, which was exactly what we needed as we were planning our Wedding from Australia! Rebecca happily met up with us (in England!) at a place of are choosing and went through her services clearly and with enthusiasm, creating an exciting vision of our ceremony. After this we corresponded via email (and met once more) to create and finalise our very own unique and personalised wedding ceremony. Rebecca was there throughout the whole process and made us feel happy, relaxed and ready to walk down the aisle!
On the day we were extremely happy with how the ceremony went, it reflected Jack and I perfectly and the life we share together. It brought a tear to many of our guests, as well as smiles and cheers. We cannot thank Rebecca enough for her constant support, guidance and creativity. We will remember our special today forever through the great memories we shared and the copy of our ceremony words in a beautiful keep-sake folder. Thank you so much Rebecca, from Mr and Mrs English.”
Hannah & Jack
“Thank you thank you thank you!! You were amazing from the moment we met you. Everything was perfect and you made our day so special, we couldn’t have asked for more.”
Emma & Dan
“My wife to be and I were determined to make a new life together and vowed that every day should be fun. We wanted to make sure that our wedding would be a keeping with this; that we would be true to ourselves and not do anything remotely ordinary. We wanted a humanist service that wasn’t too formal or stuffy, that complemented our personalities while still maintaining traditional elements. The irony is that we chose the least assuming and vernacular of venues, our local supermarket. Early on we discovered that it isn’t possible to perform a legal marriage in a supermarket but we were determined to have our special day there. A work colleague recommended Rebecca Waldron. When we met for the first time we knew straight away that Rebecca was the perfect choice. She enthusiastically nudged us into creating a wonderfully charming eclectic service by offering a variety of options with enough structure to satisfy the traditionalists. The ceremony was fun with a few real lump in the throat moments and Rebecca’s delivery and pace were perfect in every respect. White Rose Ceremonies gave us a very professional but friendly personalised service from day one culminating in a truly moving ceremony that we will never forget.”
Blake & Becca
“This lady is truly fantastic, she is so lovely and does such a fab celebration. Rebecca and Dave thank you for everything, you were totally wonderful and made our day so very special. It was an honour to meet you and an absolute privilege for you to say yes to do our ceremony, what a truly lovely lovely couple xxxxxxx”
Linzi & Matt
“Thank you so much for conducting such a lovely ceremony! We had numerous comments from our guests about how lovely, special and moving it was.”
Sophie & Steve
“Rebecca was our Celebrant at an amazing wedding we organised in Cambridge. Her blessing was so thoughtful and emotional. Our charming bride and groom loved working with her as she allowed them to make their vows truly personal. She is such a lovely person to work with and I cannot recommend her more.”

“We wanted to say one more big thank you for doing such a great job for us. You really made us feel at ease! And we are so pleased to have the binding cords and the presentation copy of the script to keep – thank you.”
