10 tips for planning your wedding ceremony in Mallorca

“I was born in England and, after studying English literature at Oxford University, embarked on a varied career that took me from Europe to the Far East. I finally settled here in Mallorca where I translate poetry and write poems, inspired by this wonderful island.

As a celebrant, what’s most important to me is understanding your needs so that the ceremony is really personal to you. I take great care about the small details so everything goes really smoothly.  I love incorporating well-chosen words that bind people together, not only in the vows that you make, but in the special way they express what is deep and heartfelt. Together, we create a shared experience for you and your guests that will be remembered for the rest of your lives.

Jonas Verner-Carlsson – Celebrant

“Over the course of many years in corporate communications I’ve helped companies and the people who work for them, to express themselves with clarity and originality. As a celebrant, what’s most important to me is understanding the essence of who you are as a couple. With this understanding, we can create a ceremony to help share this special quality with all your guests.

I help to provide guidance and creative support to make your ceremony unique. On the day, I’m a guiding hand, helping you to feel calm, prepared and composed. That way, you can focus on the feelings and emotions on this special day.

 The very essence of every wedding ceremony is celebrating love. This explains why for me it is so stimulating and joyful to be a wedding celebrant. Together we bring a combination of structure and fluidity to this ancient, magical ritual, as well as poetry, music and a lightness of heart.”

Ulf Bernström – Celebrant

“I come from Lapland in the North of Sweden, and have lived in Mallorca since 2003.  I’ve worked in entertainment and event management for the last 30 years so I have a good understanding of what goes into making an event a success.  Personally, what I love most is being the celebrant and helping to make this wonderful moment in a couple’s life happen.

Over the last few years, I’ve had the opportunity to do many ceremonies, for small and large groups, at many different locations in Mallorca, and for a range of different nationalities– and I still love it!

I also have a background as a singer and I still sing professionally. Sometimes couples include my songs in the the service, which is quite an experience !”

Claire Hyde – Celebrant

“Words are so powerful – they can make us profoundly happy, express our deepest emotions or move us to tears. I love working with couples to help find the right ones to convey how you feel, as you make your commitment to each other in your ceremony.

Portrait shot of wedding celebrant Claire Hyde

Before moving to Mallorca, I was head of communications at several arts organisations in London over a period of 20 years. I’ve always had a passion for communication and my work often involved writing speeches, training colleagues to give interviews and making presentations. I also guest-lectured on communications at Birkbeck College to students entering the arts world. A vow renewal in Deia, Mallorca with celebrantWorking in the arts was a great way to gather wonderful readings about love from the world’s great dramatists and poets. I’ve also been involved in training wedding celebrants here in Mallorca over the last six years.

Having organised so many weddings here during my six years as a wedding planner means that I understand every aspect of your day, from the logistics and timings, to the ettiquette of the bridal party procession so I can guide you through, every step of the way.”

Bernd Filsinger-  Celebrant Co-ordinator

“I look after the administration of our celebrants so they can focus on what they do best. I’m really proud of our team – their professionalism, experience and warmth are second to none. They are brilliant at words, both in terms of writing them and delivering them to audiences.

We speak four languages: English, German, Swedish and Spanish. We provide our own PA system with microphone and music playback when required. This ensures that even those at the back can hear what’s going on!

I’m your first point of contact and arrange for you to talk to your celebrant. I’m also on hand if you have any questions during the process. I am happy to help with other aspects of your event too, drawing on a wealth of knowledge of event planning and trusted suppliers that we’ve build up over the years.

The strength of our team means that if one of them were to fall ill (extremely unlikely though that may be!), we can provide a another celebrant at short notice so that everything go ahead as planned.

We realise that in the context of a big event, budgets are often tight, so we are cost-conscious and deliver your ceremony at a very competitive price.

Our fee includes our wedding celebrants working with you on all the details of your ceremony, including timings, music, your vows and readings. We also offer additional elements such as a wine box ceremony and hand-fasting. 

Although our principal focus is on wedding and vow renewal ceremonies, the skills of our team in public speaking mean that they can also be hired for other events including significant birthday celebrations, Master of Ceremonies roles and corporate promotions.

Whether you are just starting out on your wedding journey, working with a venue or self-planning, contact us here to discuss your wedding ceremony or vow renewal
