Naming Ceremonies

Naming ceremonies are actually my first love and are what inspired me to become a celebrant.

Weddings & Vow Renewals

It’s my job to create a ceremony that captures that moment in way which is completely personal and authentic.

Little Touches & More

These are the things that make your event so special and personal, the unexpected details that make people smile.

… for the special moments in your life.

Welcome to Bluebell Ceremonies. My name is Anne O’Brien and I’m an independent celebrant based in the lovely village of Barford St John on the edge of the Cotswolds. It’s my pleasure to create thoughtful, beautifully crafted ceremonies to mark the important milestones in your life – Weddings, Naming Ceremonies and Vow Renewals.

I work across Oxfordshire, Warwickshire, Northamptonshire & the Cotswolds.

Little Touches


    What’s involved

    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. The main elements are

    Getting to know you

    Choosing just the right approach

    Symbolic acts
    From lighting a candle to casting pebbles

    Vows & Promises
    Expressing your love and commitment

    Dr Seuss to Plato and anything in between!

    On the day
    Telling your story

    Your ceremony is about you. And so each and every one is unique, incorporating whatever elements suit you best. I can help with lots of ideas for venues, themes, 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 a good old sing-along, count me in; or 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 make you happy, so get in touch and let’s create a really beautiful ceremony together.
