Congratulations on your engagement! If you’re reading this, you are probably spending most of your time planning and deciding exactly what you want your big day to look like. From invitations to flowers, sourcing a photographer to choosing your menu and drinks your desktop is most likely full of Pinterest inspired wedding ideas.
However, before you start getting to the nitty gritty details of your wedding, it’s extremely important to decide on who is going to perform your ceremony, especially is you don’t want to go down the traditional route of a church wedding.
I’m here to introduce you to another option, a celebrant ceremony. My independent services make for a great alternative and will ensure your wedding is unique and personal.
With many couples now looking at more unusual locations and wishing to choose their own words and vows to say to each other, a celebrant is a far more accommodating choice. Furthermore, if you have dreams of getting married overseas but wish to celebrate with family and friends on your return then a celebrant ceremony can be a beautiful way to recreate your wedding day.
Please note, that a celebrant led wedding/civil partnership does not form a legal marriage. If you choose to have a celebrant led ceremony, you will need to arrange a date to legally register your marriage/partnership beforehand at your local Register office or with an official registrar or religious official
Fees: Weddings and civil partnerships Ceremonies- from £450 depending on your requirements.
Renewal of Vows
Whether you are celebrating 10,15,30 or 60 years as a couple or have only been married a short time but changes in your life have meant that you would like to say “I do” once more, a renewal of vows is the perfect occasion.
Whatever your reason may be, renewing your vows is a chance to reflect, celebrate and look forward to your future together. Furthermore, it’s an opportunity to re-declare your love for one another in front of your family and friends and show your on-going love and commitment as a couple. You may choose to repeat the vows you said on your wedding day, or you may wish to make new promises to each other having found new ways to express your love for one another.
Whatever you choose, I will create a personalised ceremony, which is bespoke to your requirements. I’ll take time to get to know you and ensure your ceremony is as intimate as you wish. Moreover, I’ll work closely with you throughout, taking your advice and direction as well as offering new ideas to guarantee your day is just the way you want it to be.
