So why wait till after the ceremony to get your party started?
Seriously how many weddings have you been to where you sit patiently waiting for the bride to arrive, (usually for longer than anticipated). But then yes the music starts and you get all excited as the bride and her wedding party walk down the aisle - oohing and ahhing at how beautiful the bride looks before sitting down then zoning out slightly as you check your watch following grumbles from your tummy, it's been a while since you ate..... You wonder whether there will be a great sit down meal and hopefully some canapes.......oh and then back in the room to what's going on at the front .......ooh the vows the exciting part, of lovely 'I do' - now can we go and get some free alcohol???
With me as your wedding celebrant your ceremony becomes more than just a date and a booking. I have a skill which is seeing and feeling your character and personalities rather than just another Bride or Groom. That feeling I get from meeting you begins the creative process where we work together to create a truly remarkable ceremony which reflects you as individuals, you as a couple and includes your guests so this celebration of your commitment to each other is so memorable and fun!!
If you are at all daunted by the idea of being part of creating your own ceremony, please don’t be. I can guide you as much or as little as you like, give me your ideas and I turn that into something amazing!
My fees range for weddings in the northwest typically range from £550 depending on your location. (please note, I’m happy to discuss payment by monthly instalments prior to the ceremony if this will mean you are able to manage your budget more easily)
I am also on the directory for the charity gift of a wedding, where professionals from the wedding, medical and charity sectors have come together to create a distinctive non-profit organisation, whose objective is to give people battling a terminal or life-shortening illness a choice.
My couples get professional help writing their own vows as part pf my package but I offer a Vow Writing Service for those who are struggling,
Just like you’d hire a wedding planner to organise the reception or a baker to create a delicious three-tiered cake, you can hire a vow writer to provide help with writing your wedding vows.
Hiring a wedding vow writing service might be for you if you’ve thought…
I work one-on-one with every bride and groom to provide completely custom wedding vows. This is how it works...
First I ask you to complete an easy peasy task of listing some things that come to mind when you think about your relationship, then we’ll meet over a video call. I ask the right questions to understand your love story, what makes your relationship unique, and why you chose to marry this person. This is my favorite part. And it's so totally not cringe —you'll enjoy sharing your love story details too.
Then I begin writing with one goal in mind—to write what's already in your heart. No clichés, no templates, no questionnaire you have to complete. It's your story. I'm just wordsmithing what to include and remove, how to make the words flow, and which themes can be used to tie everything together.
You’ll provide feedback on parts you really love and you'll likely become inspired to add or change a few lines too. You can send as much feedback as you want. I love editing.
I’ll revise the draft and then you’ll receive completed wedding vows that you’ll truly love.
I'll be your coach, your cheerleader and I;ll make sure you a Vow ready and confident before the big day!
My fees for individual vow writing is £100 however if you want to adopt this service as a couple then I;m happy to work with you both individually for £150. That way you will have somebody who can make sure your vows compliment each others and that they flow authentically and genuinely in your ceremony.
