Christine Capewell

Civil Celebrant

I bring to your marriage, your farewell or any important milestone, creative ideas, experience, flair and a light hearted approach. I also bring professionalism, integrity and care. I’m personable, resourceful and easy to get on with and committed to ensuring that I provide the very best that ceremony can offer you. One that’s just right for you.

Whether you are saying “I Do” to your true love, “Goodbye” to someone who has died, or “Hello” to new baby, love is the thread that binds all these types of ceremonies.

Expressing and celebrating love; this strongest, most beautiful yet complicated of emotions, through word, action and music; is what I do best!
