Meet & Greet
After initial contact we will organise a free, no obligation meeting to get to know each other and to establish whether I am the right celebrant for you. This meeting can either be in person, over the phone or online. I tailor my packages to each couple’s ideas and requirements. We will discuss a personalized quote for you in the meeting.
We have established that we are great fit. We will arrange for our first planning meeting (either in person, over the phone or online). We paint a picture of how your big day will look and feel. I am happy to give suggestions and share experiences but the emphasis is on establishing your unique ceremony style. I will give you some homework in the form of a personal questionnaire.
We will allow some time for further brainstorming. You can contact me anytime and use me as a sounding board to bounce off ideas – Timely responses are guaranteed. I can supply you with helpful information about getting your licence organised, inspiration for symbolic rituals, readings and poems and a cheat sheet for getting started on your personal vows including sample vows.
We will go into the in-depth planning and we will establish a run sheet for the ceremony and my checklist will make sure nothing is forgotten.
Ceremony Design and Writing
I will write up your bespoke ceremony, which will be overseen and signed off by you. I never use templates. I always start with a blank paper.
We will meet 1-5 days before the ceremony to rehearse the choreography. Rehearsing your ceremony beforehand will give you confidence and help to manage nerves on the day.
Ceremony Officiation and Delivery
I will be at your venue 45min before the ceremony starts to make sure every detail is as discussed and I will prep the music manager and other involved parties. The ceremony duration is usually between 20-45minutes depending on your wishes.
I will supply you with the fully written ceremony as digital or paper copy as a keepsake.
