For couples planning a wedding in 2022 it isn't too late to organise your day.
Finding a venue can be an obstacle but if you are happy to complete the legal declarations at a time other than on the day you can still find excellent venues available.
Alternatively, you may wish to hold your wedding in a place which is special to you such as your own garden, a piece of woodland or field.
If either of these options appeal to you then I would advise you to complete the legal requirements by booking a simple “two plus two” ceremony at your local registry office and then having a Celebrant-led ceremony at the venue of your choice.
If you are unable to get a slot at the Registry Office then why not consider having a Commitment ceremony and completing the legal declarations at a later date.
If you would like to discuss the difference between a Commitment ceremony and a Wedding ceremony please feel free to get in touch for a no obligation chat.
Wherever you plan to hold your celebration make sure that if the weather is inclement you have some cover - just in case.
As part of every ceremony I create I tell my couple's story. However, on this occasion I am going to tell you something of my back ground.
Seven years ago, I neared retirement I was keen to explore opportunities for setting up a small business and undertake some personal learning. After some initial research I was attracted to the role of an Independent Celebrant. I discovered that it was possible to take a formal qualification and although there is no requirement to hold this qualification I felt that by doing so I would be able to offer a better quality of service to my future clients.
My vision for my business was to offer a personal service to couples and families who wished to celebrate the key milestones in their lives. I wanted to build a business based upon providing a quality, professional service. My aim was to make each of the ceremonies I created and conducted individual, memorable and reflective of the situation and people involved.
Just over six years later I have conducted small intimate ceremonies in people’s homes and gardens, stood in fields, orchards and village halls, been surrounded by the opulence of country houses, and in tranquillity of woodland clearings.
The magic never fades nor the feeling of being very fortunate to be part of these special ceremonies.
If I can help you plan your special celebration then feel free to get in touch. I love to hear people's love stories and see consider how I can weave these into a memorable ceremony.
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.
