English / German Wedding Ceremonies


Bilingual Wedding Ceremony: German-English

What happens when some of your family are not confident speaking English and you want them to enjoy your wedding ceremony too and feel included. No Problem.

Manchmal gibt es Familienmitglieder die sich nicht ganz wohlfuehlen wenn nur Englisch gesprochen wird und ihr moechtet dass sie eure Hochzeitszeremonie genau so geniessen und erlebenkoennen wie ihr. Dass ist kein Problem.

As your marriage celebrant I will tailor your wedding ceremony package to meet your needs and requirements. You can have your wedding ceremony in German and English or just German, whatever is best for you. The legalities will be in English and German.

Als eure Zelebrantin wird es mir eine Freude bereiten eure Hochzeitszeremonie genau so zu schreiben, dass es eure Bedurfnisse und Wuensche erfuellt. Es kann auf Deutsch und Englisch sein, oder nur auf Deutsch, genau wie ihr es gerne haettet. Nur die Legalitaeten muessen auch auf Englisch sein.

So if you are inviting all your friends and family, have bridesmaids and groomsmen, photographers, music or musicians, wedding stylists and so on, it sounds like you want your day to be really memorable and for all the right reasons. That means your ceremony, the really important part, needs to be done properly too. I’m sure you want you and your guests to cherish the memory long into the future. So that’s the package that covers everything, gives you peace of mind and leaves you feeling special.

Wenn ihr die ganze Sippe eingeladen habt, Brautjungfern und Trauzeugen, Fotografen, MusikoderMusiker, Hochzeitsstylisten usw haben, dann ist es klar dass eurer Hochzeitstag wirklich unvergesslich sein soll und aus den richtigen Grunden. Das bedeutet dass eure Zeremonie, der wirklich wichtigeTeil, auch professionell durchgefuehrt werden soll. Dieses Pauschalangebot deckt alles ab und gibt euch Sicherheit und das Gefuel total verwoehnt zu sein.

“Delwyn was highly recommended to us as we were looking for a celebrant who is able to do the ceremony in German and English. Also, we were after something personalised that was touching, but light with humour.Even before the first meeting I could tell that Delwyn is really efficient, helpful and professional by the way she answered our emails very quickly. Those initial feelings about her were confirmed through the whole year of preparation, the ceremony itself and even after the ceremony. She answered all our questions promptly and to the point, but was also very patient, funny and calming at the same time. Her attention to detail, and the ability to jiggle with both languages, was exceptional and made our ceremony enjoyable, charming and lovely for everyone. To be honest, after watching Prince Harry and Meghans’ wedding, I found that Delwyn did a much better job as celebrant than the other English guy there :)”

“Where do we start Delwyn…. To put it simply our day would not have been as special without you. From start to finish you went above and beyond to guide us through the wedding process and we cannot thank you enough! If there was ever a celebrant to recommend it would be you! Delightful, helpful, resourceful, bilingual, (German speaking celebrant) passionate and a friend. We hope to stay in touch lots of love”
