Every Couple has a Story...
When a couple decide to get married it is a time of celebration and a time to share their story. The story of how they met, how they fell in love and all of the adventures that have lead to this moment.
It would be a privilege to work with you to share the story of your love, in a style that you feel is most appropriate for yourselves. As an independent celebrant I can tailor your ceremony to your requirements. I can include any spiritual, religious or cultural aspects of your choosing, as well as your choice of music, readings and symbolic gestures (e.g. sand ceremony, ring warming, handfasting). The choice really is, all yours.
Your Ceremony, Your Way
You may choose a ceremony that is lighthearted or you may prefer it to be a more formal occasion. You may want a small intimate ceremony, or a larger event encompassing all of your family and friends. You may be planning to have your ceremony on a beach at sunset, or in a stately home at noon. You may want to wear traditional attire or be dressed as your favourite fictional characters! However you imagine your ceremony to be, together we can create a beautiful ceremony that is unique and personal. A celebration of your love.
What Happens Next?
After you get in touch, I will arrange to meet with you and we can chat about your love story and the kind of ceremony you would like. If, after this initial meeting you feel that I am the right celebrant for you, then we can get down the fun part. Together we will create your wonderful, memorable ceremony, tailored to your requirements. On the day of your special event I will deliver the ceremony. I will also provide you with a quality keepsake.
I also feel it is important that I am transparent about pricing before we speak. As such, you don't have any uncertainty relating to my fees. The cost for me to deliver a wedding ceremony starts at £349.00*. There is no cost for our initial meeting.
To find out more or to book a meeting please contact me. I look forward to speaking with you.
*Please note that for ceremonies outwith the West Lothian and Falkirk areas, there will be an additional cost for travel expenses. This will be agreed with you prior to our initial meeting.
As an independent celebrant I am not able to carry out the legal part of your marriage. In order to have the marriage legally recognised you will need to have a short service conducted at your local registrar's office. This lasts approximately 20 minutes, during which you make the legal declarations and sign the register. The cost for this varies according to the local authority involved, but is in the region of £125.00**. There is no requirement to get dressed up or to even exchange vows or rings at the registrars office. These special moments can be incorporated into the ceremony that we create and therefore shared with your loved ones.
Registrars are also able to perform the legalities outwith the registry office*** and I am happy to work with the registrar if you would prefer for everything to take place at the same time and location.
**This fee is paid directly to the registrar and is in addition to the fee payable to your celebrant.
***Please be aware that the registrar may charge an additional cost for this.
