What is a celebrant?
An independent celebrant can create a ceremony that is totally personal to you, whether that includes religious rites and traditions or readings from your favourite novel, everything can be customised to what you want.
The ceremonies independent celebrants hold are not legally binding, but that means we can hold them wherever your heart desires: on a beach, in a forest, in a stately manor that does not have its own wedding license - the only true limit is your imagination!
Being non-legally binding it does mean that a ceremony hosted by an independent celebrant requires further paperwork with a Registry Office, but I am happy to help you though that when the time comes.
What will I do?
After an initial enquiry I will go through with you what sort of ceremony you might want, you can ask any questions of me and from there you can complete a booking form and get your date and ceremony set with me.
I will send you information about what you may want in your ceremony, and ask you many questions to help me draft you an order of service. Once an order of service is decided we can begin putting everything together! Within this I can help you write your own vows, or write them for you if you so wish, and help you decide on poems, readings, and any symbolic elements you would like to include and who of your friends or family you might want as a participant in your ceremony.
For a full wedding ceremony I can go through a rehearsal with you beforehand, and help choreograph how the ceremony will work and the positions to be in at each point to make sure you are happy and the ceremony is exactly what you want!
