Why choose a celebrant for
Choosing a celebrant for your wedding or civil partnership gives you so much choice and flexibility over the location of your ceremony, and ensures that the content of the ceremony can be completely tailored to you!
Ceremonies can incorporate as much tradition as you like but can also include elements of fun and laughter, storytelling, personal vows, speeches, poems, singing... anything you like! As a celebrant I'm here to listen to your wishes and make them happen, but I can also provide tons of ideas and inspiration wherever you need it.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Working with me to plan your ceremony is both easy and fun! Here's how it all works...
First, contact me for a chat about the ceremony you are planning and to check my availability. We will then arrange to have a chat on the phone so that you can tell me more about your plans and ask any questions you have. If you decide to book me for your ceremony I will ask for a 50% deposit to secure your date, and then we'll book a date for a full planning meeting.
In advance of our planning meeting you will have access to my lists of readings, music and wording ideas to give you lots of inspiration. We will then meet at your ceremony venue or another location of your choice to plan your ceremony in full. At this meeting we will discuss your requirements in more detail and I will get to know more about your wishes for the day and provide lots of inspiration.
I'll then get straight to work on your bespoke ceremony script, which will be sent to you for checking well in advance of the ceremony date and can be edited as many times as necessary to ensure it's perfect for you. I will also liaise with all the relevant suppliers to check things like layout, accessibility, sound, etc. This ensures that I will be fully prepared and ready to go on the day itself.
The big day!
I'll arrive an hour before the ceremony start time to set up, help out wherever needed and speak to those contributing to the ceremony (readers, musicians, etc) to ensure they have everything they need. I will then deliver your perfect ceremony in front of your family and friends and present you with your signed certificate and a souvenir copy of your script to take home and treasure.
