I’m feeling your love and excitement as you take this step together.
Whatever your thoughts your dream wedding is here.
The legal element of your wedding can be carried at the Registry office with a simple 2+2, just the two of you and two witnesses and the Registrar. A simple ceremony which can take place before or after your Celebrant ceremony. Most Registrar weddings take place indoors at a licensed venue, although on occasions they may be held outdoors.
A celebrant wedding can take place anywhere, anytime. I have a wealth of experience with indoor and outdoor weddings, by a lake, in a garden or barn or a grand venue. We all want a sunny day, but a little rain – huh, that never hurt anybody really. Did you know that rain is a lucky sign at a wedding? Rain brings health, wealth and a happy marriage. I don’t mind putting on my wellies and raincoat.
How do you visualise your day? You may wish to have a formal, relaxed, modern or traditional ceremony. Whatever your theme I have fresh modern ideas to express the love between you both. I like to be creative with a little bit of fun. We don’t want solemn faces do we? You may wish to include a loved reading or poem.
There are no set rules.
My first step is that we get to know each other. It’s important to feel the connection between us and that we are on the same wavelength. We will have a meeting to find out what you would like to go in your ceremony, discovering how you met, and your love story. We may even get to chat about holidays and pets.
You may like to include a symbolic ceremony such as Handfasting which is a tradition going back many years and involves using ribbons or cords in your favourite colours, tying you and your partner’s hands together, symbolising the joining of two people (hence the expression “tying the knot”). You may even know of a ritual you would like to include.
Once I have all the information you have given me and your ideas about your wedding, I will start to create an amazing script. I will go through this with you in detail, making any alterations or additions that are needed until we get it perfect. Not sure about your vows? I can help you if you wish and make suggestions. You don’t even have to memorise them, you can read them out or repeat after me.
Finally, we have got to your fabulous day. I’ll be there to steady your nerves and make sure your ceremony goes without a hitch, with you both signing an amazing certificate and ending with the announcement you have been waiting for.
In the week after your ceremony I will send you a copy of the ceremony to help you remember your day.
Don’t be like the rest of them, dare to be different. Give me a call.
