Where do you travel?
I'm Bridport based and mainly work across the southwest and up to London. I'm happy to travel farther afield - just ask me.
What's included in your fee?
I like to keep things simple for couples so everything is included that relates to my time getting to know you, writing and leading your wedding ceremony. The extras as you might expect include sourcing any ritual elements for you such as handtying ribbons, candles etc.
What kind of weddings do you offer?
I do ALL kinds of weddings! In terms of venue, I've led weddings in stately homes, castles, caves, back gardens, barns, fields and country houses. Each one has its charm but you and your partner are my focus. I'm here to make your ceremony amazing and something you'll remember with happiness forever. I'm regularly asked to weave different cultures and nationalities into a wedding or incorporate different languages and religious beliefs. I love that - it makes me really happy to celebrate diversity. Common to all of them is my passion to make sure everyone feels the love between you, gets to know you a bit more and share your happiness. This gets the party off with a bang
Can you advise us on legal marriage?
Yes I can. I used to be a registrar with Dorset registrars, so I can definitely give you any advice and information on the options open to you. The legal side can seem a bit confusing but I understand how everything works from both sides so I can help you work out what's right for you.
Why should we choose you as our celebrant?
If you're looking for a someone who gets you, who has loads of experience and endless new ideas, who listens to you, gets to know you and enjoys a laugh, I could be the perfect fit for your big day. I'm very responsive and professional; I have your backs from our first meeting. On your wedding day, you'll feel like you have a fun, expert friend looking after you. No stress - just happiness, excitement and fun.
How do you work with us?
I offer you time & guidance to help you discover what will make your ceremony perfect. I help you express your thoughts and feelings for each other and what marriage means to you - that makes a really personal, authentic ceremony. You'll find the process fun and interesting. The result is a ceremony you can't wait to share with your family & friends. You'll feel confident & excited about your big day.
Alicen was just incredible at our wedding. She took the time to get to listen and get to know who we were as a couple but also as individuals. The time she took paid off, as the ceremony was 'us' - she really got what we were about and understood the brief. To top it off she was extremely funny, we wanted a down to earth and light hearted ceremony and her humour really played well to this, everyone was in stitches at one point and she really engaged with our guests throughout, so much so (and we're not even exaggerating) we had countless of people throughout the day say how amazing she was and they even bring her up to this day.
I would use one word to describe what Alicen brings to a wedding and that is JOY. That was the word that was most universally used by our guests to describe the ceremony. The thing is – Alicen makes it all look really easy and effortless. But what she does it so special. A deep understanding of the couple – and in doing so – helping us understand each other even more. It sounds like a cliché but Alicen helped us fall a little bit more in love with each other – just through the process of planning the ceremony. Alicen provides guidance and inspiration but at the same time ensures that the day always felt uniquely ours. I honestly can’t possibly imagine anyone who might be better at this than Alicen – and am convinced they couldn’t possibly exist. Thank you Alicen for honestly giving us the best day of our lives
If you do anything today...book Alicen to perform your ceremony. Even if you aren't engaged yet...just book her she's that good. Honestly we can't praise her enough. She absolutely made our day special. We didn't want a normal standard (boring) ceremony. We wanted to have fun and our guests to have fun. And we all did. Every one of our guests said how lovely, different and funny our ceremony was.
Alicen was soo attentive and captured mine and my husband's relationship so well - our guests at the wedding thought she had known us for years. She really got to know us and created our vision of the ceremony perfectly - it was funny, personal and like no other wedding. She even coordinated her dress to my bridesmaid!!
What you can’t imagine until it’s over is the enormous joy, personality and lightness of touch Alicen brings to your day. If you both want an day you will never forget with a celebrant at your side who delivers an exceptional, personalised service from the heart … look no further … she is a gem!
