I am Karina O’Donnell, owner of Simply Ceremonies. I’m an experienced, multi-award winning, friendly and creative celebrant living and commuting between my home county of Kent and Powys on the Welsh/Shropshire borders.
I have been married to an incredible man since 1989 and we have 3 adult children and 2 cats. I enjoy good food, cocktails, books and am a lover of the outdoors, especially enjoying woodland walks or those along riverbanks and I’m really lucky to work at some wonderful venues with stunning grounds which my couples can choose for their ceremony area.
I write personal ceremonies and work hard for my couples and families. Every wedding or naming ceremony is as important to me as it is to them. I want you all to start your wedded life with a fabulous and memorable event, matching your style and personality and giving your guests something they will enjoy and talk about in the future.
I love working within the wedding industry and spend my spare time running bi-monthly wedding supplier networking events. I also mentor other celebrants in business and have recently ( in lockdown 2020) set up an online jewellery retail business www.arianharejewellery.co.uk which sells affordable, contemporary and bridal jewellery.
