What I Offer…

Wedding Celebrant ► Helping Couples Provide Dream Solutions for their Wedding at Any Location ► Bespoke Ceremonies

Creative Ceremonies provide bespoke Wedding ceremonies that are enjoyable and appropriate for you and your guests.  Whether an intimate setting or a black tie affair, I work hard to exceed expectations and create a memorable and personal ceremony that will be completely unique.  A ceremony that will touch the hearts of your guests and be truly meaningful.

Stand out from the crowd!   Be different!  Any location - hot air balloon, on a beach, in a marquee, in a castle - you are limited only by your imagination. Ceremonies throughout UK, Ireland and Europe.

Celebrity Weddings and Vow Renewals a speciality.

Funerals (Celebrations of Life): When a family member passes away, it can be a most stressful time, especially when it comes to making arrangements for the funeral service. Unless the person attends church regularly, then a total stranger steps in to assist the family.  Please remember, wherever you are located I am always available at short notice to help in these unforseen circumstances.  A service will be written that will reflect the life of your relative in a positive way. It will be a Celebration of his or her life. One of the most frequent comments I receive is this, "I never thought it possible to enjoy a funeral service".  
When you need me, call me, and I will work with the Funeral Director to make arrangements. The family will then be visited and a beautiful ceremony written. On the day of the funeral I shall conduct the service and ensure it will indeed be a Celebration of Life.

Creative Ceremonies fill an unmet need by creating individual personalized wedding ceremonies that honour, respect, and incorporate traditions of all faiths and cultures. Inside or outdoors - any location!

As I meet with and get to know couples, I create personalized ceremonies for:-

► Interfaith and interracial Weddings
► Non-denominational weddings
► Civil Marriages
► Civil Partnerships - (same sex ceremonies)
► Renewal of vow ceremonies

I am passionate about every ceremony performed. Solutions provided for venues that are not licensed for weddings or partnerships. Such challenges I will overcome!

Many couples say I far exceeded their expectations.

Ireland: Same sex couples can use me as their ordained celebrant for Civil Partnerships.

I want to reach couples who really desire to make their ceremony more meaningful than could ever be imagined. 'I love what I do, and do what I love'.

Outside of work I enjoy my family & motorhome travel in UK & Europe. Carribean Cruises also.

Any Location: Licensed or not.

4Sight Testimonials

The buzz was as awesome as ever on Friday with loads of fabulous 4Ners doing loads of business in the room.  But the morning belonged to David Abel, a natural raconteur who entertained and educated us with his story (well 3 stories to be precise) which you will have to book him to findout about because I am far to shy to repeat any of it.  Steve Abel, though physically absent was definitely in the room thanks to his dad (and I want to stress that he had no connection to the ladies of the night who dominated the 4Sight).  Seriously think about booking David - he will undoubtedly become a 4Sighting legend very quickly.  (Fiona Bray)

......I'm sure these 4Sights are getting more surreal by the day but David Abel's tale of answering machines, waiting under the stairs and playing hoopla with ring doughnuts has to be up there with the best....and it's all true!!! You had to be there... If you need a 4Sighter, or even if you're booked up...cancel someone and book David Abel.  (Steve Axtell - It'seeze,Olney)

David has a natural way of telling a story.  I am sure everyone in the room could visualise him standing in a phone box collecting calling cards! lol  (Julia Doherty)

What a great 4Sight this morning from David Abel, I haven't laughed so much for a long time!   (Diane Richmond)

What fun we had this morning. David's foresight was hilarious and he is a great story teller!!!  (Aruna Rao)

Great 4sight (funniest I have ever listened to) and fantastic meeting.  I will definitely be at the next meeting. I feel sorry for future 4sighters having to follow David (glad I'm not one of them)! (Mary Sambrook)

Terrific 4Sight - one of the best I've seen in 4N in 18 months. So good in fact that we've already booked David for his Sth Wales 4Sight debut at Mighty Monmouth on 7th September. Mark Tomlinson

A very different 4Sight delivered in David's own inimitable style...can you come to Cheltenham sometime soon ?  Andy Sawers

As one of only 2 women at the meeting, I too can vouch that David provides an exceptional 4sight. it was engaging, inspirational and often at times hilarious. Just what you need to get the day off to a great start.  Refreshing to see a genuine insight and not a hard sell. Thanks David :-)  Catherine Reese x

A fantastic and memorable 4sight that is definitely worth marking in your diary to go and see, it’s a must!  Dave Lee

It was a really great experience - this was my first ever networking event and after David's talk I feel sorry for whoever has to follow in his footsteps at the next meeting.  Very funny, engaging and inspiring - a completely natural communicator which is a rare thing indeed.  Lee Mears

David's 4sight at Solihull has rocketed to the top of my favourite 4sights. If you get the chance to see him in action, this is one 4sight you don't want to miss!! Luke McLaughlin

Loved this 4sight, definately one of the best I have seen, not to be missed John McAleer

Member Testimonials

  • David gave a brilliant send off to my father when he passed away, even though he had never met him his eulogy was perfect to the extent that one cousin asked who the Uncle was as she didn't recognise him! Thank you for making such a painful experience easier to bear knowing we were in safe hands.
  • David has been extremely helpful and friendly in welcoming me to 4N. A significant factor in my signing up to Passport for 200 days. A very charismatic guy. Greg Coates
