Clear, 'up front' and no hidden charges. I hope my (over)enthusiastic picture on the left will convince you of that. Go on; ask me what I'm doing!
I charge £75 to reserve a specific date for my toastmaster / MC work. This 'date reservation fee' is non refundable (except for exceptional circumstances).
When you book my wedding celebrant services, I charge an initial fee of £125. This is because I start work right away and this is my fee to create a draft version of your personalised ceremony (it's usually about 75% there).
More detail below. Please ask if anything is unclear or if you have alternative suggrestions!

Please get in touch if you have questions or 'special circumstances' that I need to know about. Thanks
Phew! After all that financial stuff, here's an idea to raise funds during lockdown. Try it. Good luck!
