“How did you do that?  What a wedding!   Everyone loved our Humanist ceremony – laughed, cried, smiled till our jaws ached!”

I’m Dawn Rees (she/her) a Humanist celebrant based in Norfolk but I travel all over the UK and beyond.  

My wedding and naming ceremonies are individual and humorous but always with a touch of gravitas where it matters – just to remind you that you are marking a momentous change in your life!

The days when convention and a common-sense approach ruled  these sorts of occasions are long gone!  You can choose something different. So why not choose a ceremony that reflects you and how you live your life?

New name? Wedding day?  Vow renewal? New baby? Transition? Red-letter celebration?

Personal, family and relationship milestones are important to all of us. How we celebrate them should be memorable.  So why not contact me for a completely informal meander around your ideas and desires for your special day, and together we can make make your dream ceremony a reality.  




We should always find a  reason to celebrate the one life we have!  Whether young, or not so young, same-sex or straight, people approach me because they want their special day to reflect who they are and how they live their life, knowing that everyone will be treated fairly.

You might be thinking of something very simple in a quiet place with just a few guests. Or maybe you want your children to play a central and special role.  Or maybe you want to ensure that your culture is slap bang in the middle of your day. You might want your friends to play a part in the ceremony, or your children.  Indoors or outside, on the beach,  at a wedding venue or simply  a vow renewal or naming ceremony in your home, the possibilities and the fun you can have whilst planning your day are endless.

Head on over to the ‘Happy People’ page and you will find lots of great descriptions of how I’ve worked with couples and families to create memories that last.

I deliver tailor-made ceremonies – I never use pre-prepared scripts or slightly adapted materials. My role and my intention is to give your ideas life and make them sparkle.  It’s guaranteed to be fun. so wherever your ceremony – in the UK or further afield – I’m always up for an adventure.

You might wonder what the ‘Loving’, Laughing’, Living’ headings are all about ……..  they reflect my fundamental values, so read on and you’ll see  …….  check me out and contact me.  It will be great to talk with you.
