Personalised Weddings, Renewal of Vows, Commitment Ceremonies and Naming Ceremonies
Marriage ceremonies can be short and sweet, follow a traditional format, or encompass different cultural beliefs. The choice is yours!
For a marriage to be recognised in law a separate service within a Registry Office or approved venue in front of a Registrar and two witnesses are required.
Then I will meet with you to talk over what you want from the day. I will help you create your ideal wedding ceremony – in a style that suits you.
I can help you with wedding poems, readings and vows to help you to decide on the perfect structure and length of ceremony.
I also take the time to personalise each ceremony so that the style and words are special and reflect you as a couple. So when the big day comes, you can relax and enjoy your wedding.
Renewal of Vows
Celebrate your marriage and confirm to your partner just how much you love them – over time, now and forever.
Couples often renew their marriage vows in front of friends and family on an important wedding anniversary or if they were married abroad.
I can help you to create the perfect Vow Renewal ceremony.
You might like to reflect on the highlights of your marriage, tell your partner how much you love them and make renewed promises for the future or use the same ones from your wedding ceremony?
I can also suggest ways of incorporating the involvement of your wider family and friends or symbolic ceremonies such as hand fasting, lighting candles, sand ceremony, rose ceremony or jumping the broom etc.
While not legally binding, a Commitment Ceremony can be almost identical to a traditional wedding ceremony in every other way.
There are no rules for commitment ceremonies – yours can be designed to suit you exactly.
I will meet you to discuss what you want from the day. I can provide guidance and inspiration to create a special and personalised ceremony that reflects you as a couple.
Baby Naming Ceremony
Family and friends are reminded of the joys and responsibilities of raising a child. Mentors or godparents can be chosen and may offer promises or blessings for your child.
Naming Days are a modern-day alternative to a christening or baptism. Ceremonies tend to be non-religious, but they can be tailored to accommodate different cultural traditions, faiths and beliefs. Ceremonies are often held during a child’s first year of life or on their first birthday.
