WHAT IS A CELEBRANT ??
A Celebrant can officiate ceremonies. Weddings – Funerals – Baby Naming – Vow Renewals – Memorial Services to name but a few.
The beauty of using a Celebrant for your special Ceremony is “personalisation”. Which means, no boundaries, no rules.
‘Your ceremony, your way!’
I will write your Ceremony script with as much input from yourselves as you wish. After an initial consultation where I learn as much as possible I will go away and begin to write your Ceremony. You will then get the first draft and advise me as to what you do and don’t like about it. I will then amend and alter until you are happy.
On the day of your ceremony I will be there to officiate. I will ensure that the ceremony space is ready and all elements (be it live musicians or symbolic rituals) are prepared and in place.
Just know that you are safe in my hands. Whether you are saying goodbye to a loved one, joining in marriage or introducing a child to the world I will conduct your ceremony with care and compassion.
I should mention that a Celebrant may not legally marry a couple but for anyone wishing a Ceremony in a venue of their choice the couple may go through the technicalities on paper with a Registrar at the Council Registry Office.
It costs as little as £57 for a Registrar to carry out the legalities after paying £35 each to give notice that you intend to marry. Once the legalities are done on paper you are then free to go ahead and have your Wedding Day with your Celebrant wherever you wish.
Many couples carry out the legalities the day before which leaves them free to have the Wedding Ceremony of their dreams the following day.
