What do I offer?
The couples I work with are all about connection. They want a celebrant who will really get to know them and tell their story with absolute authenticity. They want the person standing up in front of their family and friends to be someone they genuinely vibe with; a professional friend who delivers their ceremony with love and warmth. That's me.
As we get to know each other I'll be fangirling on your Stories and sharing Spotify playlists and Pinterest boards to help with your wedding planning. I'll be your biggest cheerleader and a sounding board if you need support, courage, reassurance, or just someone to share in the excitement.
Your ceremony will be written to reflect you as a couple. It'll celebrate your origin story by weaving in poetry, quotes from your favourite movies, or excerpts from your first dating app exchanges - whatever speaks to your souls. I have always been drawn to a perfect sentence and lyrical storytelling, so I can promise you a beautifully crafted script that'll make your hearts sing. It'll be a totally sincere ceremony, but that doesn't mean solemn! There'll be plenty of laughter, sprinkles of silliness, and those tear-jerking moments that will give your guests all the feels.
On the day itself, I'll be the one chatting to your relatives, checking in with the photographer to make sure we're ready for the killer shots, giving you both pep talks and reassuring squeezes, and will have my Mary Poppins bag stashed behind the scenes so we're prepared for all eventualities (think poo bags for your furry ring-bearer; safety pins; tissues; hip flask!) With me, you're in safe hands.
How much does it cost?
My standard fee for a wedding ceremony is £800 (plus travel and accommodation expenses depending on location). This includes:
a no-obligation first meeting either in person or by video call where we can get to know each other
a couple's questionnaire where we get into the nitty-gritty of what makes you tick. I can send you this digitally, but if you would rather talk me through it then I'm very happy to do this in person or over video call - I love a nattter!
a ceremony planning meeting where we get into your vision and finalise those details
a ceremony script that celebrates your love story and includes everything you have asked for - I'll send this to you in draft at first, so you have the opportunity for tweaks and comments
me as your sounding board if you need advice on readings, music, or any other aspect of your wedding day - I'll always only be at the end of an email or WhatsApp
a rehearsal if you would like one - ideally the day before your wedding so we can get an idea of the space and put everyone's mind at ease
me on the big day to perform your ceremony with warmth and love. I'll be there for reassuring squeezes and will help welcome your guests. I'll also work with all your suppliers to make sure the ceremony flows seamlessly
a presentation script posted to you within two weeks of your wedding for you to treasure
I offer vow and speech writing as extras, so please don't find yourself floundering with words - I'm here to help!
