I look forward to meeting you…

I am sure that you would like to meet me, lets begin by having a no obligation meeting,  let me make you a coffee and we can find out more about each other.

 

Completing the Notice of Intended Marriage…

Once you are happy that I will be the celebrant for you we will start the paperwork.  You will need to bring along all the necessary documents, your deposit, and we’ll fill out your Notice of Intention to Marry together.   More information can be found under legal requirements.

To make your ceremony one to remember, I look forward to hearing your story.  How did you meet? How did you fall in love?  What did you first think of each other?

During this initial meeting it will be an opportunity for me to get to know your story, and what you love about each other. We’ll get to work together to determine what your ideal ceremony will look like.

Please think about the following:

  • Your wedding style (casual, traditional, contemporary, long or short)
  • Your vows (I can provide examples or will you write your own)

If you would like any rituals or symbols:

  • Unity candle ceremony
  • Sand ceremony
  • Planting a tree
  • Ring warming ceremony
  • Having someone say a prayer or do a poem reading

It’s all about you…

I love writing personalised and special ceremonies.  I will work with you on this until you are happy with the final product.  I know that you will be busy on other wedding plans, but I will continue to keep you updated through email and phone.

I am happy to attend a rehearsal before the day with you and your wedding party, in fact, I highly recommend it.
