How it works

celebrant how it works

I work with you to help create your perfect day. If you decide to book with me, I can help you as much or as little as you choose.

I’ll be able to let you know if I’m free for your chosen date – I only conduct one ceremony per day so no timings are required straight away, although you would probably have some idea.

I can then provide you with a quotation, along with further details about myself, a booking form as well as those necessary Terms and Conditions. Should you have any queries at this stage it’s always good to have a chat to iron these out.

I can help you understand the legalities that are needed to achieve your legal marriage – often a minefield – I can take you through this one step at a time.

In a nutshell…

Step 1

Lets chat, to see if you like me and how I can help

Step 2

Planning. Co-creating your dream ceremony together

Step 3

THE BIG DAY. Lots of excitement, laughs and love

Step 4

Stay in touch, I love hearing about your adventures

Your options

We look at the options open to you together, such as where and when you’d like to have your legal marriage, whom you need to contact regarding your legal preliminaries – known as notice giving – and the timescales needed for these.

I can assist you in looking at the costings involved – every registration district sets their own fees apart from the statutory ones which are governed by the General Register Office. At the moment (2019/2020 ) you can be legally married for as little as £46.

The fun part then starts: the planning – we set a date in the diary for a face to face meeting or a video call, often in an evening or at a weekend at a time convenient to you.

ceremony design and of course the big day..
