WEDDINGS

Weddings

Welcome and warmest congratulations on your forthcoming marriage. I am delighted you are considering me to help you celebrate as your celebrant.

Every couple has their own special love story and personalities and this deserves to be celebrated! So by sharing your heartfelt dreams for your perfect wedding day with me, we will create a joyful, wonderful, memorable wedding ceremony for you and your guests to treasure.

By utilising my services, your wedding ceremony is not restricted by any legal or religious limitations as to the format or wording, so you can be as unconventional or as traditional as you wish as you celebrate your love and commitment.

You can also choose from a wide variety of venues, anywhere that is special to you, for which I can provide inspiration. From the elegant to the rustic, the adventurous to the romantic. You may wish to be indoors or outside,in a forest or field, beach or barn, castle or cave! Special access to Stonehenge may also be arranged. There are many mystical and magical venues that I have had the privilege of conducting ceremonies in. – there is no limitation far as venues are concerned for though I am based in West Sussex, Oxford and London, I serve the whole of the UK, and work extensively nationally and internationally.

Do check my availability as soon as you have decided on a date, as I only conduct a limited number of weddings each year due to the amount of time, heart and soul I put into each one.

The Ceremony

There are infinite options for your unique ceremony, including entirely personalised vows – or none should you wish. You may wish to include the giving and blessing of rings, poetry, religious readings, and I have an extensive knowledge of wonderful music and readings to share and will be posting my audio recordings of some of my particular favourites shortly.

I also have wonderful extra elements from many faiths that can be included in your ceremony, handfasting, jumping the broom, sand ceremonies, unity candles, rose ceremonies and so many other ideas to share to enhance your nuptials should you so wish.

If you wish for an entirely traditional wedding that will be perfect if that fits with your wishes too.

Children, parents, groomsmen and bridesmaids can be involved as much or as little as you want. New step-children can be celebrated. Absent friends or departed loved ones can be honoured too. This is your day and I will be in step with you every part of the way, fine-tuning and soothing any nerves too!

I have had the pleasure of taking so many ceremonies in different styles and faiths and I am skilled at weaving together all the ingredients you choose into a heartfelt ceremony that flows from beginning to end, touches everyone present, and exceeds your every expectation.

Once you have fulfilled the legal formalities required under English marriage law, see your local register office for details, in my roles as your wedding celebrant I will take you through the whole process at our initial meeting to create the day you dream about.

Vow Renewals

A Vow Renewal ceremony is a wonderful opportunity for a couple to reaffirm all that they mean to each other and to honour the journey of their shifting and unfolding life together.

This can be a profound, healing and joyous blessing that celebrates and revitalises your commitment to each other and your relationship. Whether it is an elaborate wedding or an intimate gathering over a single candle, when the right intentions are set, profound and beautiful changes can occur.

The expression of the heart in ceremony allows for a greater flow of love with our loved ones.

Inclusive ceremonies

I am passionate about marriage equality and devoted to creating relationship blessing ceremonies for ALL couples and celebrating the joyous expression of love in all its aspects.
