Don’t we all love a good wedding! It is very special to see two people affirm their love for one another - saying promises and vows - in front of families and friends. This, after all, is the reason why people have weddings - to announce, "Come share our love with us!" But with so much to plan, to organise and to do - to achieve a great wedding - sometimes the significance of the ceremonial procedure, often the smallest part of the overall occasion, can be lost, or simply not given the attention it deserves or requires. After all, this is the one day in your lives when it really is all about you. It could be on top of a hill or on a beach, or in a vineyard or at home, or in a beautiful garden, a marquee, an old building. Whatever, where and however you are getting married, my job is to make this most important part of the wedding uniquely special and memorable for you, and for your family and friends. And for you to know that you are in safe and competent hands in my taking of your ceremony. Through meeting with you, either in person or via Skype, asking you lots of questions and talking with you, I can build up a picture of you as individuals and as a couple. I will take what I see is the essence of both of you, and use this to create a ceremony completely about you. It can have funny bits, serious bits, be full of tradition or not, have your own personal vows, include people special to you. I help you see possibilities that you can have in your wedding ceremony, put it together and assist you on the day as you make this very important commitment to each other.
In any ceremony I do for you, my undertaking is to:
* Prepare a ceremony that is unique, precious and memorable to you
* Conduct your ceremony with confidence, grace and warmth
* Leave you, your family and friends with the feeling you have all been part of a special event truly reflective of the values, ideas, hopes and love that bind you.
I give guidance through any legal requirements, have plenty of resources, as well as exceptional writing and crafting skills, public speaking experience, warmth, understanding and a great bit smile.
