Celebrating an engagement is such a magical moment in your love story! But, amidst all of the wedding planning you will no doubt be busy with, it is important to remember that you are not just planning a wedding . You are beginning a marriage. And your wedding ceremony is the moment that it will start! So, you ceremony should have just as much (if not more!) focus as the other elements of your wedding day. It should be the beating heart of your day, the part of your wedding that sets the tone not only for your celebrations but for the marriage you want to build. Your ceremony should not be the 'boring' bit your guests have to sit through before they get the drinks, food and dancing! 

As a wedding officiant, I consider it such a privilege to be able to help couples create a wedding ceremony that will begin their married lives.  With a range of packages to choose from, I am able to create a ceremony that is uniquely suited to your wishes. Whether you are looking for a simple signing service, a small but authentic wedding or a fully  bespoke ceremony, please do get in touch. I'd be delighted to chat with you about the options available

Why choose a professional officiant?

Whilst in theory it can be a great idea to consider having a friend or family member officiate your wedding, it does present challenges. There are so many little details that add up to a great ceremony, details that a non-professional officiant will not fully be aware of and then, as a result, will overlook. The pressure involved for both your friend/family member and for you can be considerable. And there are other ways for you to include special people in your ceremony.

Choosing a professional officiant means that you can be assured that your ceremony is in safe hands. My professional training and subsequent experience allows me to understand the many different elements needed in creating a perfect ceremony. Whether it be ensuring your marriage license is correctly completed, being able to write bespoke vows, calming down nervous wedding party members, knowing how to work with your other vendors (especially photographers!) dealing with interruptions or offering expert advice on creative content, as a professional officiant I take all of this in my stride!

Your wedding ceremony is what your wedding day is all about and the person who officiates at your ceremony will have a lot of influence on what will hopefully become a beautiful memory for you. Choosing a professional ensures a stress free, perfect ceremony that will live in your hearts long after the day is over
