FAQs

Where can we hold our ceremony?

Anywhere!

A celebrant-led ceremony has no restrictions on location and can take place under the sky or in a building.

If you are a home-body you might consider using a family house or garden.

Love the outdoors? Consider tents and tipis; there are woodlands, fields, hillsides, parks and riversides just waiting to be explored.

If beautiful buildings are your thing you could choose a stately home or boutique hotel, and hold the ceremony in the grounds as easily as indoors.

Not to mention all the incredible farms, bunkhouses, barns and village halls, offering the freedom to DIY the day or be guided through by experienced staff.

The choice, really is, yours!

How far can you travel?

I live in Derbyshire and can easily travel within Derbyshire, Greater Manchester and South Yorkshire. I also love an adventure; so if you are thinking of celebrating further afield get in touch and we can chat about possibilities.

Can we meet you before we book you?

I will always do my best to meet you before confirming a booking, to ensure that we will feel comfortable working together. This is a free consultation and can take place at your home or in a public place within 30 miles of my local area.

If you live further away I may ask to meet you in a town/city that is easily accessible for us both or we can have this initial chat over the phone.

Are your ceremonies legal?

No. I can not legally register your marriage, a death or the birth of a child. All these things must be done by a person licensed to do so; often your local registrar or (in the case of weddings) a priest/vicar.

Then what can you do?

I help you take the paperwork out of the process!

I craft you a ceremony that is instead rooted in your story, your passions and your dreams; which can incorporate traditional elements, such as a ring exchange, alongside new ideas we create together.

I can include any content that resonates with you, spiritual or secular, and have a deep well of ideas, inspiration and possibilities for you to tap into.

Above all I will be your ceremony champion, supporting and encouraging you in making your dream ceremony a reality; from blank page to Big Day.

How do we make it legal?
