Couples Ceremonies

As unique as you are

“I am always happy to do themed and bespoke wedding ceremonies” Diane

A personal Wedding Celebration at a time and place that suits you !!

Wedding and Civil Partnership Celebrations are a wonderful and unique way to celebrate your union. With all couples ceremonies I will visit you in the first instance and after lots of contact, I will construct a bespoke ceremony just for you. I can advise on readings, poems and music for your special day along with symbolic gestures to incorporate into your ceremony.

Please Note: This is not a legally binding ceremony. You will need to do the legal part before my service. Contact your local Register office and ask for a basic statutory service before your celebration.

Renewal of Vows Ceremony

Renewal of Vows are a wonderful way to say "I Do" once again in front of family and friends. As with all Couples ceremonies this will be a bespoke ceremony just for you and incorporating all the things you love.

Commitment Ceremony

A Commitment Ceremony is a way of showing your love and commitment to each other without actually getting legally married. All the same, elements of Couples celebrations can be included in your ceremony.

Handfasting Ceremony

A Handfasting is a journey with the couples, inside a beautiful flower ring in front of their friends and family.
Along the way, they will light a unity candle to show their love for each other, make vows and exchange rings.
The handfasting element is where the term "Tying the Knot" comes from. The couple’s hands are joined and gently wrapped in ribbons or cords and a knot tied, symbolically binding the couple together.
The handfasting ritual is a beautiful ceremony dating back to the time of the ancient Celts.
Each handfasting is tailor made to suit the couple.

Please Note: This is not a legally binding ceremony. You will need to do the legal part before my service. Contact your local Register office and ask for a basic statutory service before your celebration.
