If you would like your ceremony to be unique, personal and memorable, do something different and choose an independent celebrant.
My ceremonies are written to ensure I capture the essence of your relationship, and what this special day means to you both. You can choose to have a romantic service, a sentimental service, a lighthearted and funny ceremony, or you can have all these combined. Many couples choose to include friends and family as part of the ceremony, through readings, poems or even songs, and I happily encourage this. Your ceremony should be the talking point for the rest of your day, and through my script writing experience and speaking skills, you can be sure friends and family will be talking about your ceremony for days and weeks to come.
Having a celebrant-led wedding gives you the freedom to hold your ceremony wherever you like, and at any time of day. In addition to traditional wedding venues, I can conduct weddings in picturesque forests, breezy hilltops, stunning Scottish lochs, pubs, village halls and really anywhere else you can think of! You may choose a completely non-religious wedding, or you may want to have a bible reading or a hymn included.
You can include the traditional elements such as saying "I do", or you might want to write your own wedding vows or special words. You can choose your own music, readings and poems, and decide where in the ceremony these will be read. You might want to have a handfasting, or another symbolic ritual, or even create your own new tradition. You can choose to wear traditional dress, or you can dress up like Batman. It's completely up to you. However, I have lots of ideas and am happy to help you create your own unique ceremony.
I am (proudly) happy to work with same-sex couples, and look forward to the day when this is standard for all celebrants.
As soon as you have decided to choose me as your celebrant, we will agree a date to meet in person, so that we can get started on your preparations. The sooner we can do this the better. We will then chat via telephone, email and/or skype to ensure you are both happy with everything. We will then have as many pre-planning meetings as is required before we have a final pre-ceremony check to iron out any creases and make sure everything is in order. It is my aim that by the time your special day arrives, you will feel you are being married by a friend, rather than a stranger and that I have written and delivered a script that reflects both your love for each other and your continuing journey together.
I very much look forward to being able to help you to create your special day, so feel free to call me on any of the options below:
