And now for something a bit different…a bit special…
Your personalised wedding ceremony…
Whether you are saying ‘I do’ or maybe ‘I do’ again… you are looking for something a bit different, less ‘off the shelf’, more tailored. A wedding ceremony created just for you.
You are not limited to licenced wedding venues when using a celebrant. No rules – this is your wedding and your choice.
Your wedding ceremony will tell your love story and reflect your personalities… the perfect start to your special day.
You may decide you would like to write your own wedding vows, maybe you want your ceremony to include a spiritual element, symbolic actions, poems, songs or readings. Perhaps you would like to involve family and friends, children or grandchildren in the service. I can make it happen.
During your ceremony you will get the opportunity to sign a commemorative certificate which is a lovely keepsake of your special day, and your guests and photographer can capture the moment.
How it works… 4 simple steps before the big day
1. We chat on the phone or video call
Our initial conversation is a chance for you to explain what you are looking for and I can answer your questions about the ceremony and process.
2. We meet up
The next stage is to have a more in depth chat about your exact wishes for your big day.
At this point I will have sent you a questionnaire to complete so that I can get to know you a lot better. This will help me gather valuable information about you both to write your bespoke ceremony script.
I can help with advice and guidance about what to include in your ceremony: music, readings and ideas to give the personal touch to your special day.
3. I research, develop and write your ceremony script
Your ceremony script will be crafted to reflect your own personal styles, backgrounds, beliefs, faiths and of course your story. Whether you are a true romantic or more down to earth, adventurous, fun or formal, your ceremony will be just right for you. You can have as much or as little input to your script as you wish. I am happy to offer guidance and suggestions to help with vow writing, or you can simply leave it all up to me and I will get creative.
I want to make sure you are completely happy with your ceremony script so you can amend your ceremony script as many times as you need to before the big day.
4. Final call / meeting to run through the detail
I find it helps provide the couple with peace of mind if we have a final call to check over the final details for the big day. If you prefer, we can run through the whole ceremony at a rehearsal, either at the wedding venue or another place of your choosing.
Naturally, as soon as you choose me as your professional celebrant I will be on hand to answer your questions, bounce ideas around and generally be there for you throughout the journey.
On the day…
I will welcome your guests as they arrive
I make sure that everyone involved with the ceremony knows what they are doing, where they need to be and how everything works. From checking the chairs to the music, I will liaise with key people to ensure that everything goes smoothly.
…and then, of course, I will conduct an amazing ceremony that you will remember for ever!
Why Choose a Celebrant-led Wedding?
I love my job as a celebrant because I love people and celebrations.
When you choose a celebrant it’s so important to select someone you can relate to and feel you can trust. Your special celebration is personal to you so why have a standardised ceremony?
Celebrant-led ceremonies can add a personal touch to your day and I go the extra mile to create a bespoke experience for you, your partner and your families and friends.
