About Celebrant Ceremonies

When creating a service or ceremony of their choice, many people are opting to blend something of their own character and personality with a bit of tradition.

More and more of us want to celebrate those special moments our own way or remember our loved ones in the style that suits them best.

In today’s more secular society, very often we are choosing to blend accents of styles and traditions that we readily identify with with our big occasions in life, which means that when we celebrate a new life, our relationships, rites of passage or the passing of someone that we love, we naturally look to our personal lifestyle choices and the values by which we live whilst still retaining the character and tradition of our heritage.

Traditions that can include elements of religion, spirituality, cultural values and the lineage and history that makes us who we are.

"We just wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you for making sure our day special and for making sure it all went to plan. The feedback from our guests was that it was a lovely ceremony and some have even said that it was the best wedding they had been too. Very different but very intimate. Finally thank you once more and be assured that we will recommend you if the opportunity arises. We will hopefully see you again and maybe this will be on someone else’s special day. Love Della and Kat xx"

Frequently Asked Questions

We don’t want a pre written script, how can we have a ceremony that is about us?

Oh, there are so many ways… let’s face it, your relationship isn’t like anyone else’s and your ceremony should reflect your love and commitment for each other in ways that suit you.

We will work together to make it all yours, I will guide you through it and in the end the format is up to you, it doesn’t have to be a mass produced re hash, so don’t feel that you have to settle. There is nothing lovelier or more liberating than the freedom to create something beautiful, moving and all yours, so let’s do this!

Is my  wedding ceremony with you legally binding?

No. If you wish your marriage to be legally recognised you will need to register your intent to marry at the Registry Office, telling them that you have already booked your celebrant and you just need a simple service to complete your paperwork and declarations.

Book a date that suits you with your local Registry Office, you will need two witnesses on the day. At the Registry Office you have to choose one declaration each from several legal statements, these are not vows, but legally binding words.  

To make it easier, think of the legal bit at the Registry Office as your marriage, then the wedding is the more personal celebration of your relationship with me where you can make more personal vows to each other, wherever you choose.

So is the exchanging of rings a legal requirement?

No, you don’t even have to exchange rings if you don’t want to.

I can discuss alternative ideas if you wish.

Do I have to hire a licensed venue?

No. Celebrant led ceremonies can be officiated anywhere, which means that you can choose a venue or place that is special to you, indoor or outdoor, at any time of the year.

Celebrants are also much more flexible around time; I don’t charge extra for evening or weekend weddings.

Does my ceremony have to be in office hours?

No. Celebrants are not restricted by times or working days which means you can celebrate your relationship in a relaxed, informal way with no time constraints. Or, it can be as formal and traditional as you want it to be, the choice really is yours.

I have carried out many afternoon and evening ceremonies as well as day time ones.

Is it expensive to book a Celebrant?

No. My prices compare very favourably to a registrar coming out to your venue, but you get so much more, and the cost won’t change depending on day, time or if it is a bank holiday.
