Some answers to regular questions. Please ask more
How can you help in the current 'Covid' crisis and
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.
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 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.
