Goodbye boring weddings!
How many registry office weddings can you say that you've been to have truly left a lasting impression?
One reason couples recommend me is that I don't do ceremonies with impersonal "insert name here" style scripts, typically used by Registrars and Religious Officiants.
No droning on, no words that have little to no meaning to you or your invited family and friends.
Everything is written specifically for you, every word personalised to you, with meaning, joy, happiness, and sincerity.
Hey, it can even be a little bit fun in places!
Add in some custom written vows that are both powerful and heartfelt.
The entire ceremony uniquely written and designed to move you, and leave nothing but magical memories for many years to come.

Picture your perfect ceremony,
and let's make it happen...
Some couples know exactly what they want right from the start, others might be looking for ideas and inspiration to make their ceremony something really unique and personal.
Incorporate anything that speaks to your heart – music, readings or poems, all of which go into making it very special and completely unique to you.
You might also like to include others in your ceremony – children, family, friends, and even family pets have been known to play a part!
Once you're completely happy with what we've agreed, I'll then write a wedding ceremony script which reflects everything we've discussed.
At that point, sit back, relax and start to get excited about having a truly fantastic, unique wedding ceremony.
So how do we get there?
Once you've booked me, the first step is for us to meet - in person or via Zoom, whichever is the most convenient option for you - so I can start to build a picture of your perfect ceremony.
I think that it's really important to get to know you both really well, capturing any ideas that you might already have so I can work those into your ceremony plan.
Of course, that's a world apart from meeting the registrar assigned to you just before your ceremony and one of the many reasons more and more couples are opting for a Humanist wedding ceremony.
Getting to really know you, and what's important to you, is what makes all the difference.
How does it all
work on the day?
I always arrive early and check everything is in place as agreed, calm any nerves and ensure everything that's needed is ready to hand (including tissues, of course)!
I'll ensure I meet with any key players in the ceremony, and either walk them through or rehearse their parts - such as readings - to make sure that they're fully comfortable. As your guests arrive I'll usually greet them and make some introductions, to make everyone feel really welcome.
If it’s an outside ceremony, don't worry about being heard - I come fully equipped with a microphone and a portable professional PA system so that your guests can all hear. This is included with any ceremonies booked with me.
You're also welcome to the free use of my PA system for your ceremony music.
Once I've delivered your ceremony, I leave you with a lovely commemorative copy of your script as a keepsake of a wonderful day!
I'd love to hear from you!
