Elaine Cesar - Independent Celebrant

Everyone wants to have a romantic wedding of their own to remember and treasure forever. Let me help you to fulfil your dreams and create your own perfect wedding.

Hi, my name is Elaine César, and I am an Independent Celebrant (a fully qualified member of The Fellowship of Professional Celebrants) holding certificates since 2015 as a marriage and family celebrant, and also funeral celebrant.

As an independent celebrant I can design and help you to create the perfect bespoke wedding ceremony and civil partnerships, that reflect both you and your partner's personalities, and incorporates everything personal to both you and your family.

You can write your own loving vows to each other, choose your own musical accompaniment, poems, readings and more. I will work with you to ensure that your wedding ceremony is everything you could ever wish for, and help to create some wonderful lasting memories with love, style and humour for you to treasure for years to come.

Having worked as a Sessional Registrar with the local authority for five years, in my capacity as a Registrar, I have attended and officiated at over 350 great wedding ceremonies here on the Island with registrars from the local Register Office in Newport.

However to make the marriage legal, and register your marriage, it is important to note you will need to have attended or will attend a Register Office for a legal ceremony.

I am also available for baby naming ceremonies, special anniversaries, renewal of vows and many other personal and milestone celebrations.

As an independent funeral celebrant, I can help co-ordinate and deliver a personalised funeral, celebration of life memorial service, and interment of ashes, to reflect the life of your loved one. This can include religious, non-religious or spiritual elements. We will discuss your own personal requirements, to make it a unique and appropriate service, reflecting the love, laughter, humour and memories in a dignified manner.


For the past 3 years, I have been the Hospitality Event Manager at Osborne House, the former home of Queen Victoria, Prince Albert and their family.

I headed a team delivering beautiful wedding ceremonies and celebrations, and corporate events.

Also in my career I have a wide-ranging experience in event management. I worked extensively organising and delivering a wide range of high profile events for the past 24 years with the Isle of Wight Council, one of which includes the largest walking festival in Europe.



Events are extremely rewarding to work with, particularly seeing the final outcome, and this is why being a celebrant is so very rewarding, and such a wonderful experience, helping individuals with their own personal event.

I look forward very much to meeting with you to discuss your own personal requirements.
