Weddings, Partnerships, Elopements, Commitment Ceremonies and Renewal of Vows

Please note ALL ceremonies are subject to Government Covid-19 rules and guidelines at the time of the event

I am now offering 2 different types of wedding ceremony;

 

Type 1. Standard Romantic or Standard Romantic & Relaxed £200 + expenses

Both ceremonies convey your love for each other and will be delivered with feeling and warmth and include Promises/Vows, Exchange of rings, a poem or reading, and of course some beautiful romantic words.

You can use my promises/vows or write your own, same for the exchange of rings, and if you don’t like the poem I’ve put in there you can replace it with your own favourite and add an extra one too.
You can also choose your own music for the entrance and exit (subject to the venue or yourselves arranging the playing of it).

possible additional costs: 

·         if the ceremony is on a special holiday or during the evening/night

·         if accommodation is needed (usually if over 2.5 hours driving time, but not always)

Type 2.Truly bespoke, throw out the rule book, as you like it, exclusive ceremony from £395 + expenses

Bespoke Ceremony

It is YOUR day so if you want less formal, fewer restrictions, fewer limitations but want more choices, more fun, and a ceremony that feels more 'YOU' here is where you can find it.

As an Independent Celebrant, I am not restricted to the regulations of Church or Registrar. The only limitations for your ceremony are permission from the land or venue owner and your imagination (and common decency of course 😊)

You choose WHEN, WHERE, and HOW you want your ceremony; indoors or outdoors (your venue does not need to be licensed for weddings); you can include music, readings, poetry; you can write your own vows and promises; and if you want a ritual check out this page for ideas.

You can even choose who to have involved in the ceremony which can even include your pets.

I will give you a ceremony that reflects your wishes and personality, a ceremony that makes you feel comfortable but excited, relaxed yet filled with anticipation. There will be smiles, laughter, and probably tears of joy but all these will give you memories to cherish.

Your choice: traditional and timeless, quirky and just a bit mad, or something in-between?

From £395 (see note below regarding expenses )

A note about the legal bit:

For your marriage/civil partnership to be recognised by law, you must complete the legal formalities at a register office. It only requires you and your partner and a couple of witnesses to attend but you do need to give at least 28 days’ notice. 

Elopements

An elopement is a romantic secret ceremony just for the two of you (usually), with me as your celebrant, and is usually decided upon quite quickly, often within a few weeks or months. Your ceremony can have many of the same elements as a wedding ceremony, but as with wedding and civil partnership ceremonies you will need to arrange the legal part separately with your local Register Office.

I will discuss every detail with you to ensure your ceremony is just as you want it. Contact me for a no-obligation chat to discuss your ideas and options. 

From £325 (see note below regarding expenses)

Commitment Ceremonies

A Commitment Ceremony is basically the same as a wedding, partnership, or elopement ceremony but is done before you have legally registered your marriage, it can also take the form of a Handfasting ceremony 

Renewal of Vows

Say “I DO” all over again. There are many reasons to renew your vows. It could be to celebrate an anniversary, to re-commit after going through a rough patch, or just because you want to show how much you still love each other.  Whatever your reason, renewing your vows is a beautiful way of showing your enduring love for each other.

You can have a personalised ceremony just how you want it; you can re-live your love story, rededicate your rings or exchange new ones, have friends or family read poems, you can have a sing-along or music of your choice and at the end, you will have a commemorative copy of the ceremony as a keepsake. Small and simple for family and friends or large and loud to proclaim your love to the world, the choice is yours.

From £295 (see note below regarding expenses)
