Every wedding should be unique and personal.
No-one wants a boring, irrelevant ceremony so why have one!? Your ceremony, the moment in your life when you arrive as two, but leave as one, should be better than just 'OK'.
Together we can make it Meaningful but also Personal and Enjoyable!
Hundreds of delighted couples; (our family of clients) feel the following is great value:
Firstly what you won't get!
That horrible, awkward feeling you had at that wedding that time (Cringe!!)
Guests who have no idea what's happening (Awkward!)
Stress... lots of unnecessary stress!!
A celebrant who is still 'practising', nervous or just reading through a standard script.
A celebrant that tries too hard to be funny (oh dear!!) Humour is great; telling 'knock knock' jokes or bringing up things about their own relationship... not so much!!
What you will get, included in my fee
An initial (obligation-free) meeting or phone call.
Preparation/creation of your unique, personal ceremony people will actually ENJOY!
It will be both meaningful AND enjoyable!
Unlimited email, phone or Skype/FaceTime contact.
Wedding Ceremony Tips; advice based on years of experience.
Ceremony run-through over a coffee (once I’ve created your ceremony, only if you want to, no stress!!).
