I’ve been lucky enough to help couples bring their ideal ceremony to life for seven years, first as a Registrar and now as a Celebrant. So, whatever your perfect day looks like, I’ll be able to help you make it a reality – whether it’s a fairly traditional ceremony, or something more unusual. My experience means that you won’t have to worry about the logistics or the choreography, or anything else about the ceremony – you can just relax and really enjoy your day.
Once we’ve had a chat (or two!) and I’ve gathered some information about both of you and the sort of day you’d like, I will write a bespoke ceremony which is completely unique to you, and which tells your own story. This is where the fun really begins, as you can include any readings, music or anything else you like, and together we will build the ceremony you have always wanted. You might want to include hand fasting, or a sand ceremony, or a unity candle – or perhaps you have something else in mind (one ceremony was written as a film script, with audience participation!): it really is completely up to you.
We will communicate as much as you like in the months leading up to your ceremony, until you are completely happy with the final wording. On the day itself, I will be there at least an hour before the ceremony, to liaise with the venue, photographer, any musicians etc., to make sure that everything goes smoothly, and will catch up with each of you before the ceremony to address any last-minute queries and calm any nerves!
Tanya is the most amazing person that we have met in a long time. After having all my wife’s jewellery stolen from our house, I had arranged with Tanya a surprise blessing of my wife Sam’s new rings. It was magical and memorable. Tanya made this so special it will be one of the best experiences you will ever have.
Tanya thank you so much
Duncan and Sam
Just wanted to say thanks for conducting such a lovely ceremony for us. (An extra-special thanks for calming me down before we went in!)
Our favourite part of the day was the ceremony – it was beautiful, and we really appreciated the way you conducted it.
