Your Loving Life Celebrant Amanda O’Shea
As seen on TV…
I hit the ground running with my first wedding as The Loving Life Celebrant, filmed by Channel 4 for the UK series “A New Life in the Sun”, a beautiful celebration of love for Sarah & Lee.
It was all so gorgeous, a beautiful couple, inside and out, with a wonderful lively crowd from Brighton who had traveled to Sunny Spain to celebrate and witness this wonderful couple, make their promises and commitments to each other at the stunning Venue Olta Vista.
The word in the valley was that “Amanda smashed it!”
Celebrations of Love
Weddings, Elopements & Renewal of Vows
How lucky am I that I get the honor of creating extraordinary ceremonies for you and your loved ones?
Because there is nothing ordinary about you and your story.
I have trained professionally with the Academy of Modern Celebrancy which gifts me the opportunity to travel around Spain (& beyond) as a nomadic independent celebrant officiating beautiful bespoke heart-led ceremonies.
Radically and respectfully disrupting run-of-the-mill and boring!
Let’s think outside the box, or how about we lose the box completely and start with a blank page to create a magical memory for you and your guests.
I am an advocate for unveiling your individual uniqueness and am ready to listen deeply to design a mesmerising experience with you.
I will hold space and I have got your back with all the shenanigans of ceremony.♥
It is an honour for me to be on this journey with you and together, guided by wisdom we will let love lead and create something truly amazing to share with each other and with your special guests.
As you celebrate Love & Life, my wish is to deeply listen to your individual stories, in order to create and conduct a beautiful ceremony, sprinkled with passion & joy. It is all very exciting…
Please contact me for an invite to a complimentary connection call and I look forward to hearing about your special day plans and ideas!
“I’ve got your back!” Amanda O’Shea, Your Loving Life Celebrant
Babies and little people are shining examples of unconditional love. Pure potential in action. They are truly hypnotising and mesmerising.
Naming ceremonies and blessings are offered to welcome newborns and toddlers and also to families celebrating the adoption of a child or young person of any age.
It is a perfect celebration for the welcoming of step-children into a relationship or the blending of two families with children coming together to live in unity.
Renaming ceremonies are also designed for adults who choose to take on a new name, this acknowledges a journey of discovery and symbolises a new beginning, including a celebration after a divorce. Trans naming ceremonies can offer a person a life moment, for reflection of their life so far, celebrating freedom and peace of mind and who they have become.
“Amanda, You gave us the most amazing gift with your words. The ceremony captured us and set the perfect mood for all our family and friends and we could not have asked for more.
Really, It was perfect perfect perfect!”
Mr & Mrs Brogden
What people are saying
"In America there is a story of a man called Johnny Appleseed, who spread apple seeds around America in its early days and was responsible for apple trees growing all over. This is what Amanda does with love. She spreads it around for all to pick up, and for it to grow all over. It simply feels good to be in Amanda’s presence, surrounded by all that love, she help others find joy and happiness from within themselves. I would go to see her…"
Jack Pranksy, Ph.D Author of Somebody Should Have Told Us, USA
“A celebrant will always be a crucial part of a wedding day celebration, so as a venue owner, I am grateful that I can recommend Amanda to couples who wish to ’tie-the-knot' at my villa. It is not often that you hear that the ceremony was the best part of the wedding day, a massive compliment to you Amanda. I was really rather impressed”
Paul, Owner, Venue Olta Vista, Benissa
"Amanda is well presented, professional and comforting to be around. She has a great energy and a very calm, steady tone of voice. Her natural delivery is probably due to years of experience working on the radio. The ceremony of Lee and Sarah was so beautifully planned and put together, everyone commented that it was such a lovely personal and fun service. Amanda helps couples to feel relaxed and confident so they can really enjoy their ceremony and special day.”
Tessa, Event Manager, Costa Blanca, Spain
"Amanda, You gave us the most amazing gift with your words. We loved everything that you wrote. I remember that I was in tears reading the script for the first time. Emotional tears of love and joy at reading our love story. You were so helpful and kind when I kept tweaking my vows and I appreciated that. The ceremony captured us and set the perfect mood for all our family and friends and we could not have asked for more. Really, It was perfect perfect perfect! Thank-you so much for making our day so special and for being so fabulous. Everybody loved it. We hope to see you again soon."
Sarah, a.k.a Mrs Brogden! Altea, Spain
"Amanda, what you did for us on our wedding day, and before, and after, was just so, so special. From the moment that we met at your place, we felt so connected to you, and you found out so much about us and our love story. We really appreciated that you came the day before and met both of our families. Everybody thought you were amazing! You made Sarah and I feel so comfortable, and we will recommend you to anyone in the future. Thank you for your kindness, love you lots xxx"
“We just wanted to say a massive thank-you for Sunday, our Renewal of Vows ceremony was perfect. You were amazing and you made our day a very special one. You truly are a wonderful person.”
Jane & Darryl, Javea, Spain
“I honestly thought that Amanda the celebrant was different class, the service she provided was very relaxed and chilled. We all laughed and cried! ”

Rituals, Poems, Prayers & Promises…
What I love about being a Modern Independent Celebrant is the FREEDOM to create a bespoke ceremony and I love to include a ritual that is perfect for you. Whether that is a Sand Unity Ceremony for a colourful visual of the blending of families, literally Tying the Knot, Ring Warming or making a Loving Cocktail to represent unity…
There are lots of ideas and together we will find the right one for you two!
For Funerals & Celebrations of Life
As an Independent Modern Celebrant, I work closely with individuals, families and close friends, planning a farewell memorial service from the heart, to ensure all your wishes are met.
This can be a sad, sensitive and vulnerable time for many and I am in service to bring clarity and compassion to this occasion that is often created in a swift time frame.
I create bespoke ceremonies with respect & grace that truly honours & celebrates the life of your recently passed loved one.
We will gently explore together, the content of poems, prayers, promises, hymns, rituals, stories, songs or silence, that is fitting to your loved one’s funeral and memorial service.
We are all amazing individual beings that have led colourful lives. Together we will create a beautiful service and send off and I invite you all to embrace this experience of love, life & loss as you gift your farewells in whichever way you choose to say goodbye.
“Dear Amanda , Thank so much for bringing us all together today in The Most Beautiful Personalized Farewell Service for our brother Donal. it truly Touched all our Hearts.
Love from all the family in Ireland xxx”
