About Ana Kelly Celebrant

Are you seeking a unique, laid-back and personalised Devon or Cornwall ceremony, FILLED with love and laughter AND Led by a warm, experienced, totally friendly Celebrant? If so, let’s have a chat via Zoom or face-to-face over a cuppa!

I ADORE working alongside earth-loving clients craving unusual, offbeat ceremonies! I embrace new friends from all walks of life and eco ceremonies.

As an experienced 5* Celebrant with an MA in Poetry and a HEAP of writing and presentation experience, I'd be a brilliant choice for your wedding ceremony. I specialise in laid-back, joyful, funny and sometimes quirky ceremonies, which are ALWAYS unique and personal. I'm not into cut and paste

Everyone loves my bespoke, finely choreographed ceremonies... see my huge number of 5* reviews across many sites. I’m the Guides for Brides’ 2020 Celebrant for Customer Service, and the South West Winner in The Wedding Industry Awards 2021 – both prestigious awards.

I'm also a mum to a troublesome, loveable teen and a crazy spaniel - we all love living by the beach. I'm very eco-conscious and a committed (but unpreachy!) vegan.

ANY music, readings or symbolic element can be included, and provide an individual keynote to each sparkling ceremony - there are no limits with an Independent Celebrant! I am also happy to attend at any place or time - whether in a Licensed, or Unlicensed, area. PS. I also adore beach and elopement weddings!

Love is love - I happily embrace all orientations, cultures and religions. I attended one of the first same-sex Canadian weddings in 2004; it had an English theme and a fabulous blessing from ‘HRH Queen Elizabeth’! I’ve also attended a fabulous Hindu wedding and after party in Bombay.

Customer Reviews

Ana was absolutely amazing when we decided to renew our vows after 10 years. she put us at ease as we didn't know where to start and made it so personal with voice/ video calls right in the middle of covid. on the day she was nothing but professional making it all so special including our 12 year old daughter making her and us feel very happy. By the time we had finished Ana felt like a family friend we'd known for ages. The hand fasting was an amazing touch too. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐❤

THANK YOU so much Karen and Ollie, it was wonderful to work with you - both in planning and on the actual day, in the gorgeous forest lodge. It was such a relaxed ceremony and great to meet everyone in person! I wish you all the best - give me a yell if you're ever in my neck of the woods and we'll share some more bubbly! xx

Ana was great so informative about everything we didn't know... Ana had lovely suggestions for our joint wedding and Baby naming ceremony we wouldn't of thought of.. Being friendly is a big deal to us and Ana was definitely that.. It was easy to stay in contact with Ana and sort things out so they were right for everyone so she was very helpful as we did a DIY wedding for ourselves so Thanks again Ana for all your help we appreciated it so so much for our important day best wishes from James, Caroline and Poppy McPherson X

Thank you so much, Caroline, James and Poppy! It was great to work with you. I had fun setting up with the lovely kids ahead of time too! All the love in the world to you all xx

We couldn't recommend Ana enough, our wedding was sadly postponed last June to August this year. She took the time to get to know us and our story and created the most beautiful ceremony! Although Ana couldn't perform the ceremony herself due to Illness, she managed to get a lovely lady to step in for her so we could remain stress free! Thank you, Ana, for making our day so special 💖

Hi Sophie and Ben, thanks so much for this review. I was gutted not to be able to attend but thankfully the house is covid free now! Lynn is a lovely celebrant and she was so happy to help. I’m glad your river ceremony turned out so well. Lots of love and happiness to you and your girls xx

Ana Kelly Celebrant's response

We loved having Ana as our celebrant at our wedding in July. Ana made everything personal, she put us at ease and had lots of wonderful ideas to make our day extra special. This was our 3rd date (due to Covid) and Ana was very accommodating and travelled all the way from Cornwall for us. The day wouldn’t have been the same without her! Thanks so much Ana xx

Thanks so much to you both Christina and Martyn! It was totally lovely getting to know you and planning your ceremony. I loved how the family and dog all played such important roles. All the very best xx

Ana Kelly Celebrant's response

Ana made our wedding day. She was thoughtful, interested, unconventional, thought of things we would never have come up with on our own. Above all Ana made us feel so comfortable. Our day would not have been the same with out her, she didn't miss a detail even adding a few of her own. If we decided to renew our vows at any point we would have Ana with us again. All the gold stars!

Mel and Shaun - you were totally delightful. And, as you didn't like questionnaires, planning over my home-made chilli was great fun! Loved your sister and her 'out-there' reading. The blossom was out, the sun shone, Mel - your dress was truly stunning. And all was good with the world. Happy days ahead to you xx

Ana Kelly Celebrant's response

We cannot speak highly enough about Ana as our celebrant. Her online profile gave us a very accurate picture of who she is. She spent a lot of time interviewing us to understand our backgrounds and how we came together. She crafted this into a beautiful script which was revised several times between us before it was perfect. The ceremony was so moving; Ana's delivery was warm and personal. We had so many compliments about Ana from our guests. Also, nicely printed texts on the day to keep.

Alex and David, you were joy to work with from the start - and I kept pinching myself when I arrived at Babington early to set up. This isn't work, it's pure joy! I loved our co-creation around Robert Graves' beautiful poem... so appropriate for your wonderful life journey thus far. All the very best to you both. May our paths diverge sometime soon xx

Ana is so professional and perfect, we would recommend her 100%.

Thank you to you both. The Chinese/English fusion ceremony with cake and tea was an honour to conduct. And I LOVED the chance to wear my lucky red suit! What a fabulous day - it was a privilege. Ana x

Review Bubble Tail

Ana Kelly Celebrant's response

We were delighted with the ceremony and Ana performed it beautifully. Absolutely everyone complimented us on it. They thought it was so personal, unique, touching and funny, and they loved the vows. You just cannot achieve this with a regular civil or church wedding and we cannot recommend choosing an independent celebrant, and Ana in particular, enough. Ana made such helpful suggestions about the timing, the content, and the tone, which we felt really helped to make the ceremony just right.

Thank you so much for including me in your fabulous day. The wind howled, the rain lashed but our quick move into the amazing marquee made it all so cosy and fun! I loved the laughter and your lovely, flexible guests. You were a pleasure to work for -- and you have a garden to die for! All the happiness in the world to you both xx

Ana Kelly Celebrant's response

Ana conducted our ceremony, after we finally decided what we all wanted to say - we were difficult to please but she never lost patience! She was very helpful in the planning stages and with 20+ young children in the ceremony she was never put off what she was trying to do. Very professional but approachable and clearly cares about every couple. Thank you!

Lucianne, you both were never too much work, and it was fantastic to create this service with you both - and with the boys. I loved the cake-cutting parts and the boys' faces. Your goody bags for the children were inspired. I wish you all the best for a wonderful future xx

Ana Kelly Celebrant's response

Ana was absolutely wonderful as our celebrant for our wedding ceremony in June. Ana was so flexible, full of ideas and accommodating in our needs and wants. She helped make our ceremony personal to us, and exactly what we wanted on our day. Ana was instantly a great fit for us, so many people commented on how lovely our ceremony was, and how wonderfully clear and professional but fun and personable she was during our day. Thankyou Ana for being such a special part of our day and accommodating all our wants and desires including having our pet pooch at our feet throughout the ceremony, thankyou x

It was an absolute delight from start to finish. I loved working with you - and wasn't the weather beautiful! Great photos too! Thanks for choosing me xx

We aren't your average older Wedding Renewal couple, and Ana joined in with us and our closest friends to give us the feel and service we wanted, it wouldn't have been the same with out her - so huge thanks. Ana is like a conductor of an orchestra - she let people laugh when it was funny, brought it back down when we needed to, made us feel loved and special. PERFECT!! XX

This service was a total pleasure. I had so much fun too! You are inspirational people and I was honoured to work with you. Much love xx

Thank you Ana, we really had the most special day, we had lots of comments about how lovely the service was and how nice it was to hear such personal vows so thank you for all your help and support. I also had comments about how well coordinated your outfit was so good planning there!

It was a total and utter pleasure to work with you from our first coffee to the brilliant day - and what a venue. The way you responded to each other's vows nearly had me sobbing! All the luck in the world to you both. xx

Ana Kelly Celebrant's response

We can’t recommend Ana highly enough. She made us laugh and cry (with happiness) and she quickly knew us inside out. Ana is an absolute inspiration. She captured exactly what we wanted without us knowing how to express it. Ana is an amazing person and a wonderful celebrant. It’s not everyone who could get Withnail & I, Motorhead & tales of misspent youth into a wedding ceremony

Lizzie and Austin, you were just amazing to work with! I loved the chilled vibe, you and all of your guests. I wish you all the happiness in the world. Thanks for contacting me in the first place xx

Thank you Katy and Mark! It was really lovely to be part of your day - and the marquee service worked so well. I love what you managed to create in such a beautiful space, and working with you on the service. I came away with a huge smile on my face! All the very best for a wonderful future. Ana x

Ana has been amazing to work with, she has taken all our wishes and created a beautiful service which was truly personal and meaningful to us. We had several meetings where she was able to understand our couple dynamics and gathered lots of personal info and our little quirks. Thank you Ana! Highly recommend!

Hi Anika and Paul, I loved the fact that our planning was always full of such goodwill, laughter and fun brainstorming. Thank you for choosing me... and I loved your 'Dire Wolf' Buster as ringbearer! All the very best to you both for a wonderful future. Ana

Thankyou again for everything you have done Ana, we have loved building our ceremony with you and it felt very special to us, and for that we are both grateful. Everyone commented on what a beautiful and personal service it was.

Hi Stacey, thanks to you both. The sun certainly shone down! Thanks for voting for me in The Wedding Industry Awards too -- means a lot to me. It was always such a pleasure planning with you, and I was sooo happy for you on the day! All the very best for many, many happy years. Ana x

Dear Ana, Jake and I were really happy at how well you managed to get people from the Church to the venue in such a short space of time, and to keep people on the ball when it came to speeches. You are a lovely Mistress of Services! xx

It was fun and I really did not have to be too bossy as your family and friends were so wonderful and responsive. The Church wedding was gorgeous and it went so smoothly didn't it? All the best for the future, Ana xx

Thank you Ana for your amazing contribution to Joe and Lucy’s wedding. You really did a fantastic job of understanding the love, warmth and fun of the happy couple and of the whole occasion. Your words and delivery was spot on. I was crying ( happy tears) from the moment you began! I would thoroughly recommend your amazing skills to others. Thank you so much.

Thank you Britt, and for recommending me to Joe and Lucy in the first place. What a fabulous day and all of your petals for the blossom tunnel were beautiful. xx

Ana Kelly Celebrant's response

'Our first thought when we arranged to get married was to ask Ana. She delivered the service words beautifully and they really captured us and our feelings. The thing is with Ana is she is caring, she listens and it is important to her that things are great, even if it means asking (nicely) for others to do their jobs right ahead of time (moving tables, getting the room just so etc...) She is also funny, patient and calming.'

Thanks Kevin! You were both a dream to work with from start to finish, truly. Much love to you both xx

Happy New Year Ana! Thank you again for making our wedding day very special!!! We were delighted with your lovely script and loved the flow and words! Thank you so much for all your fantastic help.'

You were a fantastic couple to work with, and chose a gorgeous place to marry. Thank you for choosing me! It was a Christmas treat to work at Lucknam, and the whole wedding team you chose were a delight to get to know that day. I wish you both all the best for a wonderful future. A xx

We used Ana for our wedding last month and could not be happier! She really took time to get to know us and worked with us to create a wedding ceremony that was personal for us as a couple, down to every detail. Nothing was too much and she went above and beyond. We are absolutely over the moon with how it went. Thank you Ana! ???? ????

Thank you Kaidey and Allan! You were both a total pleasure to worth with. All the very best for a wonderful future x

​Hi Ana! Just a quick message from our “minimoon” in Cheltenham! [????] Just like to say thank you so much for everything you did not only on the day but the lead up to the big day as well! I’m pretty sure without your calming presence and gentle nudges we would have been even more lost and generally confused before the ceremony! You were brilliant, and we both really appreciate everything you did! Thanks again

I absolutely loved you, your venue, your service, your music... the whole shebang! It was a pleasure from start to finish. Thanks for booking me! All happiness to you both. x
