Frequently asked questions...

1. What is a celebrant? The celebrant plans and conducts the actual ceremony, with the individual choices and thoughts of the couple involved. I have no affiliation with any religion in particular, so what ever your personal feelings and thoughts, even rituals can be written into the day.

2. Is it a legal wedding? The legal part is usually done via your local council by two registrars and takes about ten minutes. The celebration with all family and friends can take place at any time or place of your choosing, with a celebrant to officiate the ceremony.

3. What does the celebrant do? A great deal of planning goes into your ceremony along with in-depth conversations - giving you a choice of traditional or original ideas. The whole experience is just for you and totally unique; you can say what you  wish to another and include your family, friends, and even your pet.

4. Are you a qualified Celebrant?  I trained with UK Society of Celebrants, a much respected organisation which is widely accepted in the UK and worldwide. I do have  full public liability insurance.

5. What do the costs include?  My fee  includes: the initial meeting (this can be done in person or via Skype); further consultation and discussion to create the right ceremony for you; a meeting at your venue pre-event is possible and the actual on-the-day delivery to officiate at your ceremony.

You will also sign and receive a signed certificate to commemorate your beautiful day.

Prices and costs vary according to individual wishes and content of the ceremony, distance and special requirements.

6. Where can the ceremony be?  That's the great thing about it, there are no restrictions.  In a garden. beach, castle, local hall, stately home, amusement arcade... it really is your choice. Why not choose an alternative ceremony, themed celebrations add a great experience for everyone.
