Independent Ceremony Designer, Celebrating Life and Love

... The details

Ceremonies can be inclusive with aspects of many different faiths or totally non secular, it is entirely up to you,

Weddings : 

Your Wedding Ceremony can be exactly how you want it, as the only legal requirement in the United Kingdom is that it is registered through an official registrant either at a Registry office or with the registrant present at a location of your choice. ( certain conditions exist re location). The majority of couples decided to have me as the Ceremony leader, providing readings and their chosen elements, with the registrant administering the legal aspect.

This enables you to have a ceremony that you can have a really personal celebration that reflects your wishes as a couple, with as many friends and family as you wish, in a location you want, in the middle of the Yorkshire Dales, besides a waterfall, in a special garden, hotel, your own home, besides a river, on a beach. No licence is needed and the content can be religious or non religious, with symbolic elements, things that will make your day perfect.

Commitment Ceremonies:  A lovely way to celebrate your relationship without actually having a legal marriage.

Civil Partnership Ceremony: The same as a Wedding ceremony but for same sex couples, following a civil partnership in register office, or at location as above.

Renewal of Vows:  A ceremony to remake your vows from a previous wedding or civil partnership. A significant way to recognise an anniversary, or strengthen your relationship.

Naming Ceremonies:

New Baby, successful adoption, a baby's name is so very important, giving them an identity for the rest of their lives. A naming ceremony can be exactly as you wish, in any location, with as many or as few family and friends as you choose, with no need for a register office or church service. A wonderful personal way to introduce your child into the family, community, and welcome your chosen supporting  adults, to make promises for your child's future upbringing. A very lovely way to send blessings and wishes to your special child.
