Hello! Welcome to the online home of Butterfly Ceremonies
We are initially a Celebrant Service based in South East London, but we can cover other areas of the UK and Crete, we can also assist with planning an event, or give you contact details of suppliers.
We specialise in the renewal of vows ceremonies and can help with advice for the planning of your wedding/civil partnership or any other event.
What are you celebrating? - a wedding or civil partnership, commitment ceremony, special anniversary, a birth of a child or birthday - perhaps 1st, 10th 18th, 21st, 50th etc. Baby/child naming ceremony.
We offer various packages for all budgets.
E-mail us with some details and one of our consultants will contact you. email@example.com
Celebrating a special Anniversary?
We specialise in the renewal of marriage vows.
Celebrating 1, 10, 20 or 50 years of marriage or however many years you wish to celebrate. Why not celebrate in your own home, garden, in one of your chosen venues or a location special to you both, alternatively, why not choose a romantic spot on the Island of Crete, with one of our celebrants. We have previously worked in the registration service for many years, and we can conduct the renewal of vows ceremony as well as help organise the rest of the day if needed.
Renewal of vows is something couples wish to remind themselves of their special day, of when they first committed themselves to each other, in marriage or civil partnership. You can add readings or poems, maybe read by your bridesmaids or best man, or even the children or grandchildren!! You can celebrate as often as you want or just the once. For this type of ceremony there is no legal paperwork required or other restrictions, such as times, licensed venues etc., so if you decide you want a ceremony at short notice contact us (at least 2 weeks notice is preferable).

BABY NAMING CEREMONIES
Congratulations, you have a new baby, you want to hold a naming ceremony with your family and friends, but do not want a religious ceremony, no problem contact us and we can advise you on the process, and conduct a ceremony for you.
Or maybe the child is older and celebrating a birthday or special milestone in their lives, perhaps you wish a ceremony to mark that event.
The ceremony consists of a personalised script to include promises made by the parents, grandparents and supporting adults, choice of poems or readings. A commemorative certificate is included.
Perhaps a retirement, and you would like a ceremony with family and friends?
Commitment/engagement Ceremony, where you both like to share your happiness and love without a formal, legal commitment (until a future date)
Unfortunately we will be unable to conduct ceremonies in Crete for this season, due to a retirement and a family bereavement for a staff member. We will endeavour to give contacts of other companies who will be able to arrange ceremonies for you.
