Just wanted to say how wonderful the ceremony was.. our guests have been so incredibly complimentary, I think they were truly blown away by the combined aspects… thank you so much!  I know there was quite a bit of chopping and changing at the end and you managed it all seamlessly

I’m Dawn Rees (she/her) a Humanist celebrant covering East Anglia and the rest of the UK and beyond.

My ceremonies are individual and memorable.  They are written for  couples who love individuality, humour, value equality and fairness and love.  

You can choose something different – you don’t have to do what everyone else does. Why would you?  Choose a ceremony that  reflects who you are.  and how you live your life?

New name? Wedding day? Straight? Gender transition? Gay? Lesbian? Vow renewal? New baby?  Red-letter celebration? Just want to have fun but don’t quite know how to organise it?  

Personal, family and relationship milestones are important to all of us. How we celebrate them should be memorable – as Humanists frequently say  ‘we are only here once, so let’s get on with it’!  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.  




Humanist ceremonies are so flexible and we should always find a  reason to celebrate the one life we have!  People who ask me to be their celebrant, do so because theyhave either found me here or on Instagram, or they have been to a ceremony I’ve conducted or been recommended by friends or family.  

You want your special day to reflect who you are and how you live your life.  It’s no-one else’s so it had better be about you!

Maybe you want 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 your children are the reason for the ceremony in the first place. 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 posh place 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.
