Let's Begin Creating Your Special Day

Reach out via email or our contact form to express your interest in our Registry, Intimate, or Bespoke Package. Include your preferred date, time, and venue, and I'll confirm my availability and answer your questions promptly.

 

For a more personal touch, we can schedule a coffee, wine, Skype, or Facetime meeting. If you decide to move forward, I'll send you a tailored questionnaire to learn more about your love story and start planning your exceptional day.

Preparation Time

With both the Intimate and Bespoke Packages, we'll schedule consultations a couple of months before your wedding day. During these catch-up sessions, we'll discuss your ceremony plans, its flow, duration, and any unique elements you'd like to include. This is the perfect opportunity to brainstorm creative ideas or special touches that will make your day unforgettable. Additionally, we'll cover the logistical aspects of your ceremony, address any questions about your marriage license, and offer valuable advice and guidance for your special day.

Crafting Your Ceremony

Both the Intimate and Bespoke Packages offer standard or personalised ceremony options. Around four to six weeks before your wedding day, I'll send you the draft of your ceremony. This is your chance to review it and share any changes or suggestions to ensure it aligns perfectly with your vision. We can discuss these adjustments via email or through a Skype/Facetime meeting or even meet in person—whichever method suits you best. This step ensures that your ceremony reflects your love story and preferences down to the last detail.

Final Run-Through

Included in the Bespoke Package is the vital rehearsal. In the week leading up to your big day, I highly recommend a rehearsal with the bridal party at your chosen venue, if possible. This practice ensures that everyone involved is familiar with the venue, minimizing the risk of delays on the day. Trust me, I've seen members of the bridal party get lost en route to the venue, and a rehearsal helps avoid such issues.

 

During the rehearsal, I'll guide you through the process, and it's an excellent time to go over key aspects, such as the ceremony's music, positioning, the signing of the marriage certificate, and any last-minute details. Don't forget to bring your Marriage License and Copy of Particulars to ensure everything is ready for the big day.

Your Special Day

As a professional and dependable celebrant, I take pride in ensuring your day runs seamlessly. To achieve this, I arrive at your chosen venue well in advance before the ceremony's start time. During this time, I touch base with everyone involved in the ceremony, making any final checks needed. If the table for signing the Marriage Certificate is not already set up, I'll arrange that as well.

 

I'll also take the time to mingle with your guests, adding to the warm and welcoming atmosphere. Once everything is in place, it's time for you to shine—the music starts, and the magic of your ceremony begins.

 

Following the ceremony, we'll efficiently complete all the necessary legal paperwork. Then, I'll leave you to enjoy your fantastic celebration and party with your loved ones.
