in the beautiful Aquitaine region of South West France

Getting married in South West France is the dream for many couples

A beautiful location and stunning scenery.

Delicious food and a vast range of quality wines, all shared in a relaxed way with valued friends and precious family. This is the perfect combination for treasured memories.

Celebrating with family and friendsAnd it's so much easier than you might think!

There are so many possibilities of venue ranging from the garden of a private home or hired gite to the charm and grandeur of an ancient French chateau.

What many of my couples have chosen is to hire a quality venue in a beautiful setting where they have complete freedom to create their wedding, their way.

After a short visit to a UK Registry office for the legal marriage a week or so before, you then travel to France for your special ceremony with friends and family.

From the time we agree that I will be your minister celebrant, we will liaise by phone, skype video and email so that I can create a ceremony to perfectly reflect your essence and uniqueness as a couple. Every detail is carefully planned so that you know you are in safe, professional hands.

Then on your special day, I am there to conduct your celebration of love. Tissues are usually needed!!

Here are two snippets from recent comments by happy couples

A wedding ceremony is an intensely personal thing. You and your partner step forward in front of family and friends to make lifetime vows. Therefore the person that oversees that ceremony needs to be of a special calibre. Akasha is such a person.

If you're looking for a genuine and heartfelt celebrant, look no further than Akasha. At first we were daunted by the prospect of choosing a stranger to officiate our destination wedding in the south west of France. But then we found Akasha and any doubts and worries we had disappeared.

So if you would like to speak to me about creating and conducting your special day, just contact me with details of where and when so that we can arrange an initial exploratory chat to see how I can ensure your day will become a wonderful, treasured memory for everyone.

Here are three beautiful ceremony options for you to consider

The Simply Divine
Emerald Wedding Ceremony

The Simply Divine
Sapphire Wedding Blessing

The Simply Divine
Diamond Wedding Experience

Just a reminder that if you want to be legally married, you will still need a quick visit to your UK Registry Office before your ceremony here in beautiful South West France. The four areas I mainly conduct ceremonies are : Lot-et-Garonne, Tarn-et-Garonne, Gers and the Dordogne.

Why not come over to the Simply Divine Ceremonies Facebook page where you will find a selection of ideas to help with planning your special day.

Akasha Lonsdale, OneSpirit Interfaith Minister and CelebrantA wedding ceremony conducted by me is perfect for you if your ceremony is the heart of your celebration, and you value working with an authentic professional who genuinely cares that you have the ceremony of your dreams and the best start to the rest of your lives together.

Simply Divine Ceremonies are also ideal if :

You and your partner are from another faith and you want a mixed-faith fusion ceremony to honour both your traditions.

You don't want to be married in a place of worship but a ceremony with Registrars doesn't satisfy your needs

You think of yourself as spiritual rather than religious and therefore a secular ceremony is not enough for you

You may have religious beliefs but your partner either doesn't share those beliefs and/or doesn't want to marry in a place of worship
