About AnitaWeds

As a professionally trained Life-Cycle Celebrant, I believe all couples deserve a unique and personal ceremony. Working closely with you, I will create a completely customized ceremony for you and will give you control of every aspect of the ceremony - from the readings, to the vows, and every word I say. My goal is make sure your ceremony reflects your personality and interests - and is all about YOU.

I would be honored to help you create a memorable ceremony that celebrates your story together. www.AnitaWeds.com

    Anita handcrafted our beautiful Hindu-fusion ceremony, and it was so amazing and beautiful. She knew so much about all the cultural aspects already, which was a huge plus for us! Working with her remotely, we were able to communicate via email to incorporate all the things we wanted to convey in our ceremony, and she sent us multiple drafts and edits to make sure it was perfect. And it was!! She made it all easy and wonderful, and we cannot recommend her more. She's extremely professional, but also just a really great person, which makes working with her all the better.

    I wish I could mark 10 stars! Anita was amazing, all our of family and guests thought she was a friend based on the level of personalization and attention to our Love Story. Every step along the way was easy & seamless; her writing style fit exactly what we were looking for to celebrate our big day. She cultivated a ceremony that was unique and meaningful; weeks later we are still getting texts/messages complimenting how special she made the ceremony.
