Celebrant in the French AlpsKay Evans is a trained Independent Civil Celebrant, registered with the AOIC (the Association of Independent Celebrants) in the UK and France. She’s sincere, honest and fun, recognised for her open-minded, warm and calming nature, strongly believing in providing complete freedom of expression and peace of mind for each individual couple.

Living in the northern French Alps (about an hour south of Geneva) Kay is the only independent celebrant of her kind in the Portes du Soleil region and is in demand all over France and the UK for her sincere, meaningful and fun ceremonies.

Kay is neither a religious minister nor a Humanist celebrant – instead respecting the wishes of each individual couple – reflecting their personalities, cultural background and freedom of expression.

Kay Talks About Ceremonies

Says Kay “I used to think that choosing this type of ceremony was about being different, about stepping ‘outside the box’. About making a statement. And although it is certainly all about individuality, I’ve realised that for couples choosing me to design their wedding ceremony, it’s perfectly natural.

It’s fundamentally right for them. They have a vision and they are curious to discover how to achieve it. They are being true to themselves and honouring the way in which they want to mark their special occasion. A way which truly reflects their personalities, allowing them to select a location of their choice, inviting all their guests to witness the ceremony – including the exchange of rings and vows, music and readings.

It’s about the couple, it’s your story. It’s on your terms. You are in charge. They are sharing thoughts, feelings, emotions that often have never been expressed so openly before. So guests feel special and honoured to be included. It’s about people coming together that really matter. And this is true no matter what the occasion.

With many years experience in feature writing and event management and with a creative wedding stationery design business, I’m now combining the range of skills and experience I’ve gathered – guiding you through the process, being there every step of the way, sharing ideas, building a ceremony that fits you perfectly.

I love what I do. It’s an honour. I enjoy the people I meet, the stunning locations in which I have the pleasure of conducting ceremonies and the amazing stories I get to tell. I honestly feel that I’m doing what I was always meant to do in life.”
