When you plan a Celebrant led ceremony you can hold it anywhere you wish and include any content you wish too.
Last week saw me return to Cranfield University as part of the training team for Civil Ceremonies Ltd.
It was a very rewarding week and it was clear that everyone got a lot out of the course.
Long and satisfying relationships take time and effort on the part of both partners. The rewards for doing this repay the effort and then some.
So how can you start on the path to creating a successful partnership which will stand the test of time ?
Writing a love letter
Writing a letter can be a little daunting. We are all so used to firing off a text or email that when faced with a blank sheet of paper on which to express our love we freeze.
Exchanging love letters during a couple’s ceremony can enhance the moment. They can be read together at a point in the future and each time you read them they will remind you of your special day.
Here are my top five tips on how to write a love letter.
Music will enhance any ceremony.
Try to select a soft meaningful track for entrances and as the background for actions during the ceremony such as signing a certificate.
You can really ramp up the energy by having something with a good beat for your exit. This will get your guests into the party mood.
Always time your music and just play the right amount for entrances and exits.
Also make sure you listen to all the lyrics - there are lots of great songs but some of them are break-up songs !!
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.
