Your English speaking Celebrant in the Dordogne

I would love to design a unique and individual wedding ceremony for you. Each ceremony is personalised to reflect who you are as a couple. When you book me to do your ceremony I will work with you to create something memorable and meaningful to you both. Please send me an email - I am very happy to discuss your special day with you.


Hi there. My name is Michelle Roberts and I have been a wedding celebrant in France since 2019.

I completed my Celebrancy training with The Fellowship of Professional Celebrants in the UK. I have been living in France since 2010 - firstly, in the Cote d'Azur and for the last seven years I have been living in the beautiful Dordogne region of France. Originally from Australia, I have lived in the U.S., Singapore and Japan before settling in France. I worked as a First Class long haul flight attendant before settling in France and finding my love for everything to do with weddings. I love what I do and I like to think it shows!

My ceremonies are very personal and I love getting to know my couples and making their day as special as they are. I am now based in the Dordogne and love to carry out wedding ceremonies in the surrounding area so please get in touch to check my availability.

My favourite part of your ceremony is the retelling of your love story. After all, that's what everyone is there for! Your guests want to hear how you met, your first date, special events in your lives, favourite holidays, funny stories and of course the all important proposal. Was is it on a cliffside at sunset, on a deserted beach or in a place that has special meaning for you both? I will work with you to create that perfect script as well as helping you choose readings, songs, poems and of course guide you with your vows. We can also work together to incorporate special ceremonies, such as unity candles, sand blending or hand fasting rituals.

For more information on the services that I can provide please do get in touch as I would love to talk through your ideas. I am open to any suggestions to personalise and make your special day unique. I look forward to hearing from you!

Can I incorporate different types of special rituals into our wedding ceremony?

Yes! I love to incorporate different rituals, such as hand fasting, sand ceremonies, candle ceremonies, wine box ceremonies, ring warming ceremonies, a commemorative certificate signing or a cocktail making ceremony - these are but a few. The sky is the limit with a celebrant led ceremony. All of these can add a very memorable touch to your ceremony. I often try and involve other family members and friends when performing them.

Can you help with choosing Readings and writing vows?

love to help couples write their vows. I have a large number of resources as well as templates to get you started. I also have a library of different types of readings to help you choose - from humorous, to religious, to nature themed, to literary and beyond.

Do you provide a wedding rehearsal?

Yes, I do. If a venue is over an hour from my house, I will stay nearby to the venue the night before your wedding and have a rehearsal with you and your wedding party the day before. This really helps with the “choreography” on the day and ensures that everything runs smoothly on the wedding day.

Is the Ceremony that you perform a legal one?

A celebrant led ceremony is a symbolic or secular one, not a legal one. In France it is called a “Ceremonie Laique”. Most couples choose to do the legal side at a registry office, before they arrive in France. However, in so far as the “optics” on the day - all that your guests will see is a beautiful wedding ceremony focusing on you professing your love for each other in front of all your family and friends.

  • Thank you so much Michelle, it really wouldn't have been the same without you! We had the best day, and you were such a big part of it, really helped put us both at ease and created such a happy and positive atmosphere! All our guests kept saying how brilliant you were!

    I'm sure we'll be spending plenty of time in the area over the coming years, so it would be great if one day we could meet up again for a drink, hopefully we'll even be able to bring Poppy along!

    All the best, and thank you so much again!

  • Hi Michelle,

    Thank you so much for your email and kind words!

    I can’t believe it was over a week ago! We are currently having a lovely time in Croatia for our Honeymoon.

    It was definitely everything we wished for and we are so glad you were our celebrant 😊

    Thanks again
