Donna Marie Graves
"Your Day, Your Ceremony, Your Way!" is at the heart of my philosophy. It is always an honour to be a part of your personal life affirming moments, witnessing your memories in the making, creating lasting smiles to cherish.
Based near Llantrisant, South Wales, I officiate ceremonies both in the locality and beyond, including Monmouthshire, Cardiff, Newport, the Vale of Glamorgan, Bridgend, Swansea, and further afield. If you are looking for a Ceremony beyond Wales, then I can easily accommodate other counties such as: Gloucestershire, Somerset, Devon and Cornwall.
Rest assured, I am an official member of 'The Celebrant Directory' and the professional Celebrant body of the 'Association of Independent Celebrants' (AOIC). I am also pleased to be a founding member of the 'Association of British Wedding Businesses'. There is a recent feature in the editorial news in the 'Your South Wales Wedding Magazine'. I am listed on the following websites: 'Your South Wales Wedding Magazine; 'Outdoor Ceremonies' and 'Wedding Day Angel'.
Having taught religion, ethics, philosophy, diversity and equality, it is really important to me that the ceremonies I create and officiate at are inclusive with all views, values, relationships and lifestyles embraced and celebrated. With this background, I am able to offer a wide range of ceremonies including non-religious, religious, humanist, spiritualist, cultural or 'fusion'.
People I have worked with comment that I am 'people centered', caring, compassionate, empathetic, approachable, calm, supportive, organised, creative, reliable and professional.
I really cannot wait to discover your story and journey, your vision and dreams for your ceremony!
