Are you engaged and planning your wedding? Congratulations!
This is a time of fun and excitement for you both and you’ll have lots of decisions to make as you plan the details of your special day.
Your Ceremony is what your Wedding Day is all about so make sure that it’s everything you want it to be. Don’t let others’ tell you what you should do.
Throw away the rule book!
Forget rules and regulations. I’ll work closely with you to create a totally personalised Wedding Ceremony that’s exactly how YOU want it, and exactly WHERE you want it. It could be a Blue Sky Ceremony under the open skies, or a relaxed and intimate ‘backyard’ Wedding Ceremony, a Barn Conversion or Tipi. Maybe you’ve got a wonderful historic venue in mind. Whether it’s indoor or outdoors, or whichever type of venue – no licence is required, and there are no restrictions at all. I can officiate your Wedding Ceremony anywhere.
Write your own Vows!
You get to tell your partner exactly what it is that you love about him/her in your own words. The quirky things they do that make you love them even more, what they mean to you, how they have helped and supported you, why you can’t imagine life without them. Writing your own wedding vows is so special and an opportunity not to be missed. Your partner will hear them for the first time on the day itself. There are bound to be tears – yours, theirs and your guests too !! Nothing can compare with saying the words that you’ve written yourself. And when your partner reads his/her own personal vows to you, you’ll be so amazed and happy that you decided to do it this way.
It’s important to appoint a Celebrant that ‘gets’ you.
Choosing a Celebrant that you feel comfortable with and have confidence in is important. Talk to two or three celebrants to ensure you find the one that feels right for you. I like to have a face to face or a live chat initially and then we can meet in person where I’ll get to know more about you and your plans.
If you decide you’d like me to create your ceremony I’ll get to know more about you so that I can write a Ceremony thats all about you.
I will do a practice run through the order of the ceremony with you both as the day of the Ceremony draws near so that you are happy and relaxed on the day itself.
You’ll receive a Wedding Certificate and a presentation copy of the Ceremony of your special day to keep.
A Celebrant led Wedding Ceremony is a Symbolic Ceremony and is not a legal ceremony. Most couples do the legal marriage with a 15 minute ceremony with 2 witnesses at the Register Office a week earlier. This currently costs around £60.
Need help with a speech?Brides as well as Grooms get involved these days!
Want to make your own contribution to your special day but not sure how to get started? I help Brides and Grooms to get their memories, anecdotes, observations and wishes for the future in order and put them in a wonderfully personal wedding speech for you. No-one will ever guess that you didn’t write it all by yourself. I can’t wait to get started!
