Catherine Kentridge is a London-based celebrant who conducts beautiful and fully customised weddings and other ceremonies across the UK.
I’m Catherine Kentridge and I create and conduct beautiful, elegant and fully customised wedding, vow renewal and civil partnership ceremonies, together with baby naming & family ceremonies, and memorial or celebration of life ceremonies in London and across the UK.
As a trained soprano, a professional storyteller and writer, and an experienced actor, I am able to use these skills to help put people at their ease and lead a ceremony that will be a lifetime memory for you and those closest to you. I bring deep listening skills to understand exactly what you want so I create and deliver a ceremony that goes far beyond your hopes and expectations.
I speak French and Italian fluently and can create completely bilingual ceremonies in those languages. I am also happy to include words or greetings in the language of your choice. I have united hundreds of couples and, on request, have also included elements of Spanish, German, Czech, Russian, Hebrew, Cantonese, Portuguese and Afrikaans into the ceremony.
I will advise and support you, drawing on my extensive knowledge of these special ceremonies to make your wedding or family ceremony an occasion you will be thrilled to experience and always remember with happiness.
Your ceremony will be in the words and language(s) of your choice, in a location that you love and encompassing family and cultural traditions that mean something to YOU.
I have a deep respect for and openness to different personal beliefs, cultures and traditions and love to weave these different elements together into a harmonious and profoundly meaningful ceremony.
Because celebrant ceremonies do not have the restrictions of a church, synagogue or registry office, they can take place any time, any place, anywhere and be based on a religious, non-religious, interfaith, spiritual or civil basis, containing the traditions, rituals and customs that mean the most to you and your family.
You may choose a simple or elaborate ceremony to celebrate happy new beginnings or the life of a loved one lost. I will work with you to create a beautiful, elegant ceremony that is full of feeling and warmth, something extremely personal to you and a memory to treasure for always.
