Love

Weddings, partnerships, betrothals, renewal of vows, handfastings

Congratulations!

Ceremony is at the heart of all LOVE commitments. It’s the space in which promises are made and witnessed, and friends and family can share in your special moment of commitment.

You are individuals, with your own personalities, cultures and values, and the ceremony that sees you individually and together has to be crafted with skill, so that each element reflects your truth and fulfills your intentions and desires.

My joy is to give life to your hopes and dreams by planning, creating and leading your ceremony. I hold your special moment with tenderness and love.

Every ceremony is unique. You can light candles, beat drums, release doves, play music, sing, read poetry, say prayers, exchange rings, make promises using words that are meaningful to you, do handfasting, add dramatic elements…the possibilities are limitless!

And your ceremony can take place wherever you want it to: on a beach, in a field, in a house or a garden, a woodland clearing, a stately home, a hotel, a yurt, a gypsy caravan…or wherever is special to you.

To check if I’m available on your BIG day, text 07964 721843 or get in touch via my contact form.

Often couples come to me from different backgrounds; it might be one has faith and the other doesn’t, or they are from different countries or cultures, or they have different religious paths.

Whether you have a faith or no faith background or have different faiths or cultures, I can weave elements from any background into your ceremony.

The most creative and sparkling ceremonies can come out of the marrying together of different backgrounds. I’m also happy to share leading the ceremony with a faith leader of another community. I can help you become clear about what you are promising to your partner, and help with writing vows or promises.

Sometimes there can be complexities in the wider families and friends of the two partners, perhaps a strained relationship or challenging guest. My therapeutic background makes me sensitive to complexities and I can help guide you so your special day stays on track.

“Thank you so much for all your help, wonderful address and everything you did for our wedding. Couldn’t have hoped for a better celebrant.”

I take on just a few weddings each year so that each one is very special. If what I’m offering resonates with you, contact me to book an initial consultation and we can explore if we’re a good fit.

THE LEGAL BIT

I am able to carry out weddings in Scotland and Northern Ireland both ceremonially and legally. At present, I can’t take the legal part of the wedding in England and Wales, but I can carry out the ceremony. Many of the couples I work with who want to include a legal element go to a registry office just before or after their wedding ceremony. In many countries the legal and ceremonial elements are conducted separately.

In booking a ceremony with me we enter into a contractual agreement, and take care to ensure that this will work for us both. All ceremonies become firm bookings when half of the agreed fee is paid as deposit. You have seven days to cancel and receive a full refund. After this time the deposit cannot be refunded. The balance of fees is due the week prior to the ceremony.

SOULFUL
