Weddings

Everybody loves a good wedding. And as an Independent Celebrant I love being able to help you to create your perfect wedding ceremony, allowing you to relax and enjoy every memorable moment.

Inviting me to conduct your wedding ceremony means that you have much more choice and expert guidance in what can be an overwhelming process. You can choose the place, the time, the theme, the design, everything about the whole occasion. I can advise you on the setting, the content and how to create the perfect atmosphere. I will write the vows especially for you and your partner or work with you to craft your own, help you choose readings and words so that they express exactly what you feel and want to say. If you, or your family want to include prayers, readings and symbols from your own faith, we can do that too. The whole day will be tailored to you, your family and your friends, so there will never be another wedding quite like yours.

Under the legal requirements under English Marriage Law you will need to call your local Registrar and fulfil the legal requirements . Couples often choose to hold a simple ceremony at the Register Office beforehand, or invite the Registrar to come to their venue.  Then, once the legal elements of your marriage have been witnessed and signed, I can conduct the beautiful ceremony we have created together and you can enjoy every precious moment of your unique wedding ceremony.

Civil Partnerships

A Civil Partnership Ceremony gives couples of the same gender an opportunity to publicly declare their love and commitment to one another. I can help you to write the vows and choose the most meaningful words to perfectly express your feelings and hopes for your life together. The choices of music and poetry, the place and time, the colour scheme, symbols atmosphere and decoration are all yours.

Creating such a ceremony is almost as enjoyable as attending it because there are no limits. I promise you, we can have a lot of fun choosing and writing the perfect ceremony!

Renewal of Vows

Many couples find that they want to re affirm their love and commitment to one another in a very personal way, and to invite close family and friends to witness their vows and share in their joy. Some want to celebrate their many years of marriage together, others may have been married overseas and would like their family and friends at home to celebrate their love. Or it may be that their relationship has been through some difficult times and they want to start afresh

Whatever the reason it is always an honour to help to create the most precious, personal ceremony on which couples can build their future together. These ceremonies can be held at home or at another place and time that is significant to them and their family.

I can offer lots of fresh ideas and suggestions for meaningful words, appropriate music and symbolic actions. I will also write the vows and promises that are unique to each couple and so create a truly beautiful and unforgettable ceremony.
