Firstly, congratulations on your engagement!
With over 25 years in the wedding industry I can help you create the most personalised, individual, bespoke wedding tailored to suit both your styles and your personalities. It will revolve around your love story. We can also include rituals such as Sand Blending, Celtic Handfasting to Unity Candles to name a few. I can offer ceremonies to all creeds, mixed cultures, gay or straight couples, religious and non-religious and mixed faith. Why not individualise your wedding more – are you a biker – bring your Harley, a dog lover – include your pets, the possibilities are endless.
Simply choose your favourite place to get married– whether it be a forest, on a beach or cave, a mountain top or even just a traditional wedding in a hotel or house – everything can be tailored to suit you!
Solemnising The Wedding
At present Independent Celebrants are not able to solemnise a wedding on the day but it is easy to organise a legal signing at your local registry office a day or so before, leaving you free to have your ceremony day or night, indoors or outdoors and with no restriction in wording, with the choice of religious or spiritual input if desired, and with any quirky or unique elements that you would like to add – basically it can be your ceremony your way.
It also relieves a lot of anxiety from the morning of the wedding as the legal bit has already been done by then. If preferred nobody needs to know this and can do a signing in front of guests and family.
What Happens Next?
Having worked in the wedding industry as a make-up artist for over 25 years and as a celebrant also... I have many contacts and suppliers I can recommend and can assist you with any part of the wedding should you require.
Packages available for Makeup and Celebrant Services for weddings – CONTACT ME for details.
If you are happy to go ahead with booking your wedding date with me, I would require a deposit of €50 (non-refundable) to secure the wedding date as I book up quite far in advance
Once the deposit is received I will contact you to organize an initial meeting in person, by phone or on Skype to go through all the options, discuss your wedding ideas, introduce you to ceremony rituals and to learn all about you as a couple so I can begin writing your love story. This will take approx. 1 – 2 hours in a relaxed enjoyable environment
CREATING THE CEREMONY
I will then send you an email with a range of poems, readings, ceremony rituals suitable to the theme of your wedding for you to choose from. At a later stage I will send you some ideas and guides for writing your vows.
I will correspond with you on a regular basis and continue editing your Ceremony until you are 100% happy. Nearer the wedding date I will send you the final copy of your Ceremony for you to approve
The Morning of the Wedding – I will bring the two of you together and share your love story in front of your desired friends and/or family and then unite you as husband and wife.
