"And wow the ceremony was just perfect!!! I can't thank you enough! Everyone was saying how lovely it was and how it was so personal! We definitely made the right decision to choose you to do our ceremony!"
... Wedding at Orange Tree House with Phoebe the dog as ring bearer!
Your ceremony can include music, readings and poems which all add to the atmosphere and make the event personal to you. They can be favourites of your own or I can
help you to choose.
There are also some lovely extra elements that you may choose to include and you will find some of these on my Special
You can write your own wedding vows to one another or I can suggest vows for you.
Involving children in the proceedings can add an extra special dimension to the day and together we can design something specifically for them.
Your ceremony can be as brief or as long as you like but around 30 minutes is about the right length to include all the necessary elements: The welcome, the readings, the vows, the
exchange of rings and the signing of the certificate.
We will have a rehearsal so that everyone involved knows what to expect of the
ceremony and feels relaxed on the day. I can give a little coaching and 'insider tips' to ease any nerves!
You will be surprised at how reasonable
the costs are. A specially-written, unique wedding ceremony often works out at a lower cost than a church ceremony or having a registrar conduct the whole service.
Important Legal Note:
Under the Marriage (Northern Ireland) Order 2003, you must give notice
to marry to the registration office in the district where the marriage or civil partnership is to take place. A legal marriage ceremony must be performed either by a registered religious officiant or a registrar.
My client couples usually attend the registry office a few days before their wedding day for this. It takes about 15 minutes and
just involves repeating the registrar's words of solemnisation in the presence of two witnesses. Then your marriage or civil partnership certificate is issued and you're all set to enjoy your Big Day and your bespoke ceremony with family and friends.
