Services For Your Cancelled Wedding Day

These unique services are being offered in the light of the weddings and commitment ceremonies that have been cancelled due to the Covid-19 crisis in the UK and globally.

I want to encourage those who are experiencing the jarring loss of their planned wedding celebrations, to not let the date of your cancelled wedding pass by, but to take it as an opportunity to create something beautiful and meaningful, that will give you joy and hope for the weeks and months ahead.

Mark that date and honour the time, energy and emotion you have put into your planning, whilst also growing hope, trust and positive intentions for the Big Day still to come.

I will be making a 10% donation from every booking of these services to The Trussell Trust supporting their vital work providing food and other necessities to those most in need during this difficult time.

2. DIY ceremonies created just for you
£80

We’ll chat about what you’d like to do to mark the day (on the phone or via Skype, Zoom, etc) then I will go away and create something that suits your specifications. I will send the finished ceremony/ritual to you, via email, a week before the day your wedding would have been. It will arrive as a PDF and will contain full instructions and a list of any items you might need.

You can then go ahead and perform your bespoke ceremony however feels best.

After the date I will send you a ‘to keep’ copy via PDF or you can choose to purchase a printed copy, with personalised cover. This will arrive approx. a month later to account for printing time etc.

Please note this option is subject to any restrictions that may be introduced regarding postage etc during that time.
