This is likely to be one of the most important days of your life!
Why should you not plan to have exactly what you have always wanted with no restrictions? If you choose a celebrant-led ceremony, that's exactly what you can have.
We can put together a completely bespoke and personalised ceremony and there are no restrictions with celebrant-led services.
You can include religious elements as much as completely non-religious elements. There are many steps of the ceremony that resemble a traditional wedding, for instance, the exchange of vows and rings.
For the legal stuff - many couples will have already done the 'legal' part of their marriage before their celebrant-led ceremony. This isn't necessary and can be done afterwards but is the most usual way of doing things. You will need to contact your local Registry Office to arrange this and obtain your legal marriage certificate.
My ceremony is not a 'legal' ceremony but a celebration!
Together, we can create a beautiful ceremony that you and your guests will always remember. It would be an honour to be able to provide you with a truly magical day.
Would you like your guests or family members involved in your ceremony?
That's fine too - this is often good fun and makes for a relaxed or less formal event.
After all, its your day and it should be everything you want it to be.
What's included ...
An initial meeting to discuss the options available to you. If you allow me the honour of performing your
ceremony, there will be a 7-day period of holding your date. This also allows you time to be sure you have
made the right decision.
A second meeting so that I can get to know you. In order to create the perfect ceremony, its good for me to
hear your story, how you met, the proposal, your families etc. You can tell me how you would like your wedding
to flow and what you would like included.....or not!
I will then begin to put together your personalised service and we will maintain regular contact throughout the entire process.
The option to add any elements you wish to your service. For example, the lighting of a unity candle, handfasting
or sand ceremony.
A meeting approximately 2 weeks before the day to agree the finalised schedule, ceremony and your vows.
Weddings from £450.00
Mini Ceremonies from £ 50.00
(handfasting, unity candles, memorial print)
A rehearsal with me at a mutually convenient time. This will
usually be a day or two before the ceremony.
There will be only your ceremony booked with me for that day.
This gives you the freedom to choose any time for your service
without the need to fit into a registrar's 'time slot'.
A beautiful personalised framed Wedding Certificate
which will be signed during the ceremony.
