Falamos Português (do Brasil)
Hello, I'm Christina Costa and I'm an Independent Wedding Celebrant. I create bespoke wedding ceremonies based around your personal story, individual needs and beliefs.
I work with the understanding that the legal and celebratory elements of a wedding do not have to be conducted together. Therefore, it is possible to legally marry in a brief statutory ceremony, then celebrate the most exciting part (vows, rings and more) in a unique and meaningful ceremony at the venue of your choice in front of all your lovely family and friends.
No need to restrict numbers because of the size of the registry office! In fact, this way you could have the ceremony at the same venue as the party and at any time of day (or evening).
Sit down meal or no sit down meal? One of my favourite wedding venues was in a pub function room: the bride and groom invited guests for an evening ceremony, gave them a cocktail on arrival, exchanged vows and rings, provided sliders and sweet potato fries, then had dancing and the cake!
I lived in Italy for years and speak fluent Italian. I adore Brazilian music and love singing songs in Brazilian Portuguese. If your wedding is multi-cultural then that is my speciality! I love to find out about new cultures and find ways to represent each one and blend them together for a ceremony. My favourite so far has been an Anglo-Brazilian wedding ceremony read in English and Portuguese followed by a forró dance class! It was a wonderful way to include both sides of the family and get guests to mingle.
I am so passionate about this approach to weddings!
Please get in touch for a no-obligation consultation.
Very best wishes, Christina
"Two years have flown by since Christina designed and led our wedding ceremony in our special location of a sailing barge. She tailored the content to us and made it very special. One of the elements we really liked was the sand ceremony that she suggested where we poured three lots of sand into a jar to represent our lives combined. Thank you Christina for helping make our day wonderful!"
"Christina is a master of her craft from beginning to end. She visited us regularly before the wedding, got to know us and created a personal and touching ceremony that was beautifully delivered on the big day itself."
