Choosing a Celebrant led ceremony gives you more choice about the content of your ceremony. It also means there are fewer restraints on time and place.
So if you wish to celebrate your event at home, in a local venue or outdoors a Celebrant led ceremony would be ideal.
An Independent Celebrant creates and conducts non-statutory ceremonies. Each ceremony is unique and written to meet your requirements.
An Independent Celebrant differs in their approach from a Humanist as they will include some religious content with in the ceremony. For instance one of the readings may be from a religious text or a prayer, hymn or blessing may be included.

Supporting adults' promises
This simple ceremony can be added to by including other adults who may wish to make promises such as Grandparents, additional readings, symbolic actions such as lighting a candle or giving gifts, and musical items.
Each ceremony I conduct has a unique script which has been written to reflect your hopes and wishes for your child's future.

Sequel Wedding celebrations are not new and in many different cultures it has long been the tradition to have multiple wedding ceremonies.
Couples choosing to have a Sequel wedding can spread their celebration over several days or months.
You may choose a small legal service with close family and friends either here or abroad and then follow that with a more lavish wedding celebration to which you can invite a larger group of guests.
As you will be legally married when you hold the second gathering this would lend itself to having a Celebrant led ceremony, which has none of the restrictions of the legal process.
Choosing a Celebrant to help you create that special ceremony is an important step towards making your occasion a really memorable one. Why not take advantage of the free initial meeting I offer ? I believe it is important to meet informally to discuss your ideas and what I can offer. Meeting also gives us an opportunity to explore the type of ceremony that would best suit your needs.
