Our Partnership

Jennie will provide the venue, the food, the drinks, accommodation for up to eight family or guests, and I will have the pleasure of creating your perfect wedding ceremony, and being your Minister/Celebrant on the day.

To be legally married you just need a quick visit to the Registry Office in the UK, which then means there are no French legalities. This can be arranged either for a few days before you travel to France or weeks before. Generally though, most couples prefer a few days before arriving in France, so that the legal date of marriage is close to their wedding ceremony date.

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
