Some answers to regular questions. Please ask more
Why should I consider using a Wedding Celebrant?
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.
How can you help in the current 'Covid' crisis?
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 facer to face or via web services. Surprisingly inexpensive (I'm told!)
How long are your 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. 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.
