    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, 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. butterfly_ceremonies@yahoo.co.uk

    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, with one of our celebrants. We have all previously worked in the registration service for many years, and we can conduct the renewal of vows ceremony as well as help organise or advise for 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. Each ceremony we hold is personalised to the couple.  You can add readings or poems, maybe read by us, 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).
