I am Karina O’Donnell owner of Simply Ceremonies and I am an award winning, professional independent celebrant.

I create and present personalised, heartfelt ceremonies to celebrate your Wedding, Renewal of vows or Baby Naming and Welcoming ceremonies.

Based in Folkestone, I predominantly offer my services in Kent and surrounding areas including East Sussex and South East London. I am experienced with creating ceremonies for couples who live abroad but who wish to hold their ceremony in the UK and will also, happily travel abroad to conduct destination weddings. I enjoy working with the Chateau de Dohem in Northern France as an example.

If you wish to have a ceremony which is all about you, then please get in touch with me to find out more.
