Naming Ceremonies

“Naming ceremonies are what first inspired me to become a celebrant”


“my ‘little black book’ is bulging with lovely suppliers who I’d be happy to recommend”

Hi there – welcome to Bluebell Ceremonies! I’m Anne, a qualified and experienced celebrant based in the lovely village of Barford St John on the edge of the Cotswolds. I create thoughtful, beautifully crafted ceremonies to mark the important milestones in your life – Weddings, Naming Ceremonies and Vow Renewals.

My why

I was inspired to become a celebrant after my oldest daughter’s naming ceremony. All the most important people in my world were there that day and not only was it a chance to celebrate the wonder of her arrival (and drink a lot of fizz obviously!), but it was also a moment to say thank you to my lovely lot. ⁠

‘My why’ is to give other people this joy too, whether it’s as part of a wedding, a vow renewal or a naming ceremony. It doesn’t matter if it’s just the two of you or a huge gathering; a backyard wedding or a 3 day festival (count me in for both btw!) – what matters is saying “I love you” to the most incredible people in your life. ⁠

My style

I’m known for my calm, unflappable nature and my warm, inclusive approach. Creating your ceremony is a collaboration and I love finding creative ways to involve your friends and family.

My approach is all about listening, caring and being thorough. I love hearing about your story and weaving all the unique details into your ceremony. It really matters to me that you have an amazing experience, so there’s heart in every script I write. And finally, you can rest easy knowing that I will consider every element of your ceremony, so that it’s relaxed, seamless and utterly memorable! If that sounds like you – then let’s chat.

I work across Oxfordshire, Warwickshire, Northamptonshire & the Cotswolds. Scroll down to see how we would work together and get in touch to find out more.

How we work together

Creating and delivering your ceremony is about listening really carefully to what you want to say about your relationship and writing a knock-out script for all your family and friends to experience, that reflects this individuality. Here’s how we work together:

Discovery call
Getting to know each other

Booking & Deposit
Secure your date

Questionnaires & meeting
Learning about your unique story

Drafting & Edits
Where the magic starts to happen

Final script & Balance
Finishing touches

Your big day!
A ceremony to be treasured

Your ceremony is about you. And so each and every one is unique, incorporating whatever elements suit you best. I can help with ideas for venues, suppliers, readings, promises and symbolic acts. They can be elaborate and flamboyant, simple and pared back or pretty much anything in between. If you have a mix of backgrounds, we can take a little inspiration from each; if you want to celebrate at the top of a hill wearing your wellies, just lead the way!

My joy comes from giving voice to your passions and the things that you hold dear, so if you’re looking for a celebrant that will go the extra mile and create something that’s just right for you, then get in touch and let’s create a beautiful ceremony together.
