In order to help you create your perfect ceremony I will provide you with a package of useful material from which you may wish to select vows, readings and declarations. I will also lend you material that will support you at every step.
If you wish, we can create a personal introduction to the ceremony which tells your story in a very special way. Some couples like to create virtually the whole ceremony themselves apart from the legal requirements provided by the celebrant, and I would assist you to do this if it is your choice.
On the day, I will arrive early at the venue to check the public address system, the placement of chairs, practise the words of the ceremony with you, liaise with personnel on site, and diplomatically organise the guests for the greatest intimacy.
I will be encouraging you and your bridal party to have an on-site rehearsal to smooth out any concerns, and make sure that everyone is comfortable with the procedures. This is particularly important with regard to people who are participating in the ceremony as readers, as they are sometimes inexperienced in public speaking and may need extra practice.
I will produce a beautiful copy of the ceremony for you to keep afterwards with your photographs and other memorabilia.
In short, I will endeavour to make sure that your wedding goes just as you have dreamed.
Please remember that I need your documents to be lodged with me at least one calendar month before the ceremony to fulfil legal requirements.
