Weddings and Handfastings

When planning a wedding, it can be easy to lose sight of one simple truth at the heart of it all:

You love your partner and your partner loves you.

So give yourselves the gift of a ceremony that really means something to you both. Beyond the usual tropes and traditions, allow your imagination to fly free and express your story, your journey and your unique passions: your way.

A ceremony for you

Every ceremony I write starts as a blank page; what we fill that with depends entirely on your hopes, dreams and desires.

You might want to include traditional elements such as a ring exchange and repeating vows. Perhaps you want to write your own? You might be interested in symbolic actions such as handfasting, cup sharing and invoking sacred space.

Whatever your dream wedding ceremony looks like it is my job to bring it into being, as fully as possible.

As an accomplished wordsmith and storyteller I want to tell your story, in your way; for some that may mean sharing stories and anecdotes, for others its all about tone and energy.

As a long-time practitioner of ritual, I have a wealth of ideas to share when it comes to making your commitment visible and visceral to you and your assembled guests.

Above all, I will ensure that every guest invited to your special day knows they are a welcome and necessary participant in witnessing and honouring the celebration of your marriage; making memories for everyone that will last a lifetime.

On the day…

I will be there with time to spare, to ensure the space is set and prepared for the ceremony we have planned. This can include a cleansing and blessing should you wish and I provide all necessary tools for this.

I will happily liaise with any venue staff, wedding planners and of course family and friends who are involved in the ceremony prior to the day itself.

A copy of my Public Liability Insurance can be provided in the lead up to the ceremony, if requested.

After the ceremony I will be around to meet guests and ensure any items of importance from the ceremony are safely packed away for you,

I also provide a beautifully presented copy of your ceremony for you to keep.

 

For more details or to share your ideas with me please get in touch; I can’t wait to hear from you.
