Some answers to regular questions. Please ask more


How can you help in the current 'Covid' crisis and beyond?
Future ceremonies and celebrations are likely to be different to those we have seen in the past. There could be fewer attendees. I suggest you consider my 'Mini-TM' services and the live streaming services to involve remote family members. Please get in touch and we can review all your possible options and alternatives.

Why should I consider using a Wedding Celebrant?

People choose a celebrant when they want a ceremony that's tailored to them, or if they want it at a time or place not allowable by Church or Registry Office. A couple married overseas often want a special ceremony for family and friends in the UK.

Can we include elements of religion?

Yes. I have perfomed ceremonies that involved singing hymns and saying prayers. I am not a 'religious official', so I cannot perform recognised religious functions


Are there really no restrictions as to what I can do?

We must adhere to legal and decency standards but there is a lot of freedom on how you can have your ceremony. Tell me your idea and I'll give my opinion.


Are you prepared to write a ceremony for someone else to perform?

Yes, I offer a 'write only' package for a family member or friend to deliver.  I can 'rehearse' the person face to face or via web services. Surprisingly inexpensive (I'm told!)


How long are your celebrant run ceremonies?

It depends what is involved; number of readings, how many songs, amount of music and other 'ritual activities' but typically 20 - 40 minutes.


How much will it cost?

Several factors influence the costs: location, timing, number of meetings - and so on, but I'm very reasonable; I'm not in this just for the money. Let's talk it through and I'll give a quotation. 


Why should I use you?

I have a lot of experience as both a celebrant and toastmaster - and also as a general master of ceremonies and event host. My clients tell me that I'm friendly and caring (I'm now starting to blush!). However, you must decide for yourself; there are many people I can recommend if I am unavailable. We can meet and talk about what you want (or chat via phone, Zoom or skype). I'll tell you how I can help and I won't push you for an instant decision.
