The Process

We will start with an initial telephone conversation and decide if I am the celebrant you would like to work with. We will check dates, chat about your ceremony dreams and set up a meeting. If you choose to work with me, I will ask you to sign a small contract and pay a  50% deposit. Another 25% is due 6 weeks before the ceremony, with the final 25% due 2 weeks before the ceremony.

 

We can then meet and start your journey - this is usually quite a long meeting - there is so much to cover but don't worry I am there to do the hard work. I will send an email after our meeting summarising our chat which will give you the opportunity to add anything you may have forgotten or tell me something I have missed out.  I will then start working on your script.

We will also cover any legal bits at this meeting, e.g. GDPR

 

 

 

What's included

      I will start piecing together your ceremony and we will have further contact regarding readings, poems,       music

      6 weeks before the ceremony date I will send a draft script for you to read over and add/ remove any         content you wish
