Your Questions Answered

If you have a question that isn't answered here please feel free to get in touch with me, I'll be happy to hear from you, Karen.

Is a Celebrant a Registrar?

These are two different officiant types. I am a celebrant, which means I am free to give you a completely personal and unique ceremony. A registrar is bound by various legal requirements that will inform your ceremony's structure and wording.

Can a celebrant marry us anywhere?

Yes!  Very happily as a celebrant I can conduct your ceremony anywhere you want; be that your favourite beach, your garden or a woodland full of birdsong.  As the legal requirements are all covered at the registry office before the actual ceremony surrounded by your family and friends, you are free to choose the location that means most to you.

Is a celebrant ceremony legally binding?

Things are changing, but for now a celebrant led ceremony must still be proceeded by the couple signing their legal forms at a registry office to legalise their marriage.  Think of it as a little warmup a few days before the big event.  Gather two of your favourite people as witnesses and take them with you to your basic statutory ceremony. It will last 15-20 minutes and cost around £50.

What is the process?

1 — Make contact with me and meet.

2 — Confirm a date in writing.

3 — I get to know you, your hopes for the day, stories & ideas to include.

4 — I craft your unique wedding ceremony for you (you will review and adjust if you'd like)

5 — The Big Day! I’ll be at your wedding venue early to make sure that everything unfolds smoothly.

The Process in More Detail

Making it simple for you

1 — Make contact with me.
Finding the right wedding celebrant is an important choice, so before you book, let’s meet up for a chat about your wedding (in person or on Zoom).
2 — Confirm a date
If you decide that I’m the wedding celebrant for you, I'll send my Terms & Conditions, we'll confirm a deposit and your date, and then we begin to plan.
3 — Creating Your Unique Wedding
We’ll meeting to create plans for your day. This is the fun bit, where we can create your personalised ceremony, discussing your love stories and what brought you to marriage.  We can draw from your first date romance, tales of beautiful love, or the complexities of blending families and building partnerships.

As your wedding celebrant, I’ll guide you through creating a ceremony that reflects you and your union.  Throughout the vows and promises and rituals and ring-bearers.  You’ll know exactly what feels right for you.  A lot of couples struggle with where to begin.  I can suggest readings, poems or songs to bring the occasion to life. Alternatively we can create something pared back and beautifully simple. All aspects of the ceremony will be selected to focus on you, your love, and your story.
4 — Written from the Heart

Once we’ve had our meeting then I’ll craft and curate your unique wedding ceremony, weaving in warmth, joy and a sprinkling of humour. It will feel authentic to you both, flowing between storytelling and symbolism, beautifully marking the celebration.  After crafting the ceremony I’ll present it to you both and you can add any final thoughts.  By this process it will be just right in time for your special moment.
5 — The Big Day!
On the day, I’ll be at your wedding venue early to make sure that everything unfolds smoothly. I’ll communicate with the photographers, venue staff, musicians and readers to ensure everything is in place.  I’ll also be there to reassure you both that all is well and things are coming together.  The ceremony will then commence, all your thoughts, dreams and wishes will follow the path you have set, under the heartfelt witness of your friends and loved ones.
