If you are looking for a unique or favourite venue for your Wedding or Civil Partnership, then a ‘celebrant based’ ceremony could be for you
If you want something different to the ‘traditional’ ceremony (where the same standard words are used for all couples), then a ‘celebrant based’ ceremony could be for you
If you want a ceremony tailored to you and one which expresses your love and commitment to each other in a unique and personalised manner, then a ‘celebrant based’ ceremony could be for you.
Conventional weddings and civil partnerships take place at registry offices, religious ceremony sites (e.g. churches) and specific licenced locations - and all of these events stick to a defined format. But you have other options.
The only legal requirement in the UK to register a marriage or civil partnership (and to get a certificate) is say some ‘Declaratory words’ and ‘Contracting Words in the presence of a licensed person and two witnesses (who could be complete strangers to you).
The rest of the service, including exchanging rings and saying vows, is purely ceremonial and can happen anywhere you want it, in any format you want it and at any time you want it.
You can register your marriage quickly and cheaply at a registry office and then, sometime later, have the wedding ceremony you have dreamt of.
As your wedding celebrant, I will work with you to design and script a ceremony to give you exactly what you want. If you can picture it, I can make it work for you.
Please contact me to talk about how I can make a difference to your special day
