The 6 Ibiza Wedding Celebrants You Need to Know.

Ibiza Wedding Celebrants. Who they are and what they can offer your ceremony ♥

Did you know that before the 1500s we could marry ourselves? I don’t mean get married to ourselves, although I know some people who would do that. I mean we could just declare ourselves as a couple, married. These days we have professionals to do this job for us, which is just as well. 

Ibiza weddings have enjoyed increasing popularity over the last 10 years. This is understandable, what with it being the best place in the world to get married. No bias here obviously 🙂 This popularity means a healthy choice of suppliers is now at your disposal. Ibiza wedding celebrants, once just an add-on in many a wedding package, are now offering some amazing  personal options for your wedding. So how can you choose which one is best for you? 

I’ve interviewed the 6 Ibiza Wedding Celebrants you need to know about and asked them all the same 3 questions:

  • Describe your ceremonies in 50 words or less:

My Celebrant style is modern, down-to-earth, real, romantic, inclusive, fun and thoughtful. I am a sucker for romance, but I also want every ceremony I perform to exude real-life love and marriage, and for the couple (and their guests!) to feel that their ceremony was really personal and unique to them”

  • How do you plan and produce an Ibiza Wedding Ceremony for your couples? 

I love talking to couples before they make the decision to book with me, because they can ask me questions, tell me their vision and ideas, and most importantly, see if they connect with my style and personality. For couples to choose me because they feel like they can open up to me and talk to me like I’m a close friend is essential when it comes to creating a ceremony that truly reflects them.
On my website I have a couples login area with a questionnaire for them to fill in and loads of ideas so that couples can get inspired and find out what they do and don’t like and want for their own wedding ceremony. Then I talk to their nominated friends and family so that I can get to know them even better, research ways to bring their ideas to life and work back and forth on drafts of their script until it’s perfect! 

  • Favourite quote about Love:

“I know that love happens under the splendour of moon and stars and fireworks and sunsets but it also happens when you’re lying on blow-up airbeds in a childhood bedroom, sitting in A&E or in the queue for a passport, or in a traffic jam.
Love is a quiet, reassuring, relaxing, pottering, pedantic, harmonious hum of a thing; something you can easily forget is there, even though its palms are outstretched beneath you in case you fall”
Dolly Alderton’s, Everything I know About Love: 

 

Carly Marie – Ibiza Celebrant

@ibizacelebrant

In her own words Carly came to Ibiza due to  “a friend betting us that the boat we were living on back in 2011 couldn’t make it all the way to Ibiza. We won the bet (we being myself and husband Mike…also my childhood sweetheart.) and fell so in love with the island that we decided to stay”

  • Describe your ceremonies in 50 words or less:

“My style is relaxed, modern, warm, personal, genuine and fun. I think ceremonies need a balance of sweetness, sincerity and romance combined with lightness and laughter. I love working with couples to make their ceremony reflect them…their day, their way! 

  • How do you plan and produce an Ibiza Wedding Ceremony for your couples? 

We communicate via email, WhatsApp and video calls to suit and I send out a questionnaire and link to a private page of our Your Day Ibiza website with their booking confirmation.
If a couple have booked a ‘Written for you ceremony’, I will also contact their friends and family to get a picture of what they are like as a couple and individuals and for any anecdotes or kind words to include. This helps to make a ceremony even more personal and although more time consuming is my favourite type of ceremony to perform.  

  • Favourite quote about Love:

“We are here to love each other. That’s why we are alive. That’s what life is for.”
Maya Angelou

  • Describe your ceremonies in 50 words or less:

An elegant, personal and emotional wedding ceremony with a simple traditional structure. Involving family and friends so they too play an important role in the joining of two people and two families.

  • How do you plan and produce an Ibiza Wedding Ceremony for your couples? 

After the initial contact with a couple, I arrange a video call with them. I feel it’s important that they like me. Seems like this is an obvious statement but it really is a must that we feel comfortable working together and that the couple get to know me as a friend. I will be playing an important role in their day so it’s important they feel relaxed with me.
If at all possible it’s great to meet in person and then the ceremony can be put together via emails and chats. I like to get as much personal background info from them so that I can use this in the ceremony.  Once they arrive on the island I will arrange for a run through with those involved in the ceremony so everyone can feel relaxed on the day

  • Favourite quote about Love:

“To love is nothing. To be loved is something. But to be loved by the person you love is everything.” 

Oso

@osoibiza

Oso brings a relaxed and personal touch to his ceremonies and is something of a romantic himself. The name Oso means Bear in Spanish, but how did it come about? Oso explains that… “The love of my life, my Sharna, once called me her “Big Bear” and the name has long since stuck with family and friends”

  • Describe your ceremonies in 50 words or less:

Warm, personal, joyful & thoughtful. My style is inclusive, focusing on the couple & their unique connection to one another, as well as the group of family & friends who have made a tremendous effort to join them on their special day in a very special place – Ibiza.

  • How do you plan and produce an Ibiza Wedding Ceremony for your couples? 

Celebrancy is a calling and it brings me so much joy to create meaningful ceremonies for my couples; I want to make their experience fun and exciting from the start. The way I approach designing a ceremony is based on my own curiosity and observations of who they are. I’m really interested in how two people connect with one another and relate to the world around them; how they build their love and life. I do this through lighthearted conversations, connecting with the couple whenever I can, and sometimes asking close family members and friends to help me build a richer portrait of their relationship. I’m romantic and sensitive at heart, so I find almost everything I need to build the ceremony comes from the couple and the stories they tell me, especially the little things. For me, a wedding ceremony is not just about retelling the tale of how a couple met, but also about making connections and revealing things about their love and relationship that friends and family probably don’t already know about them. The ceremony sets the tone for the rest of the day, so I look to create something meaningful with the right balance of fun, occasion, and magic. I want my couple to walk back up the aisle with an enormous boost of energy and love from their family and friends, which the entire wedding party takes with them into the rest of the day. 

  • Favourite quote about Love: 

Most of my favourite quotes are little things I overhear couples say to each other on their wedding days. Last summer, I created a ceremony for a couple who were married on a beautiful cliff-top next to the ocean. “You’re my ocean.” I heard the groom whisper in the bride’s ear. I loved that, it was perfect for that place and moment. It’s my idea of romance and it’s completely real, instead of something from a book or a song.

I can’t even begin to tell you how many weddings Sean has presided over! I’ve been a fair few of them myself 🙂 Lending a strong presence with a touch of well placed Irish humour has made him a firm favourite with many Ibiza Wedding planners and venues over the years.

  • Describe your ceremonies in 50 words or less:

I like to speak of the importance and the seriousness of marriage but in a way that’s presented as elegant and exclusive to you. I also put a strong emphasis on humour because although a wedding ceremony is a serious occasion it should also be a happy one with a few laughs thrown in!

  • How do you plan and produce an Ibiza Wedding Ceremony for your couples? 

After initial contact and some chats by phone or email I will then make an in person appointment to sit down and talk together. We will come up with a wedding ceremony very special and personal to you both which will include some lovely moments very unique to Ibiza.

“Don’t ever stop dating your wife, and don’t ever stop flirting with your husband”
