This week on Wonderful Wedding Suppliers we hear from Two Falling Stars, so many people are opting out of the traditional hotel and church wedding it’s great to see a selection of independent celebrants on offer across the country!
Who are you and what do you do?
My name is Awen and I run Two Falling Stars. I am an independent celebrant and create bespoke ceremonies for weddings and handfastings, namings and family blessings and I also do funerals. I like to work with people who want to bring individuality and a little magic to their life celebrations. I’m happy to lead a ceremony pretty much anywhere, the only limit is your imagination.
What’s your favourite part of a wedding?
Probably when I give the final blessing in the wedding ceremony, all the preparation, all the nerves have built up to that. We’ve gotten through all the formal pieces of the ceremony, and its the bit where I get to confirm they are married and wish them well. It’s always quite emotional, seeing two people look each other in the eye knowing they are married is a special moment.
What’s the best bit of advice you can give to couples in the planning process?
Go for what you want, not what everyone else thinks! This is your special day and you don’t want to look back in years to come and wish you had done something differently. Let it be a day that reflects you and your partner, not your mum or grandma!
What keeps you passionate?
I love to celebrate life! There is always something to celebrate and in fact I think we should celebrate more moments and rites of passage than perhaps we do.
Do you follow wedding trends?
I’m not really into trends, I love to read all the blogs and magazines and see what’s going on but I think everyone is unique. If you want a trendy wedding have one, but if you don’t then don’t! Don’t do it just because it’s trendy, do it because it fits who you are.
What’s next for your business?
I want to see Two Falling Stars grow and work with as many quirky and magical people as the diary and life will allow! I’m also looking to expand into wedding and events planning in the next twelve months.
