Your wedding ceremony
I custom-create every ceremony specifically for the couple, so your ceremony will be created with your vision for your ceremony in mind. The ceremony will include exclusive contemporary elements that none of your guests will have seen at another wedding. Even if you choose one of my Warm and Wonderful weddings (an alternative to the Registry Office in terms of price and simplicity, but nothing like the bland and standard ceremony the Registry Office provides), the ceremony will be an original creation, not a boiler-plate standard ceremony, and will be performed with warmth and friendliness so that your guests are not only included, they are entertained. My focus is you, your ceremony, your story. The kind of magic that achieves this doesn't just happen. This is why I work very hard to gather information about what you would like for every aspect of the ceremony from you, together with the information that helps make the ceremony totally unique.

Through extensive knowledge of ceremonies and celebrancy, thoughtful and in-depth examination of every aspect of the traditional marriage ceremony and of other types of ceremonies, a natural bent towards creativity and pushing the envelope, and the wisdom that comes with maturity and life-experience, together with my track record of 800+ ceremonies, I can guarantee that your ceremony will not be a ho-hum experience incorporating outdated gender stereotypes, tired old rituals or long-winded readings used as fillers, a blow-by-blow account of how you met and the daily details of your relationship, or presumptuous and boring lectures. My aim is that no-one looks at their watch, and everyone goes away saying "that was so them...." so I take a very creative approach to fusing tradition with your personal style to create a contemporary personal ceremony.

I firmly believe that your ceremony is an investment in your relationship, with one another and with your family and friends present. Most of all it is an investment in memories that will last for the rest of your lives. But I am also aware that times are tough, so I offer a range of ceremony styles at fees that reflect the amount of time that each demands of me. I do, however, apply the same high level of skill and dedication to every ceremony.

If you are planning a wedding (as opposed to just getting married without any of the fancy stuff) what you spend on your celebrant compared to what you are willing to pay for a stretch limo or an expensive, is a matter of your priorities. Only you can decide those.
