Wedding Ceremonies

£950

I specialise in wedding ceremonies that care less about traditions that don’t fit with you and more about reflecting your relationship as it truly is. ​

Humanist ceremonies are non-religious and based on your personal love story. They are welcoming and inclusive and are a glorious celebration of you! ​ If you sound like the clients I am currently working with- romantic, fun, down to earth, laid back, relaxed, open to ideas to make your ceremony POP! creative, super loved up and chilled out then I would love to hear from you. ​
You might want some nods to tradition but with a cool modern twist, and you definitely want your ceremony to totally reflect who you are as an individual AND as a couple AND to be oozing personality AND a little “OMG that was amazing, I want to do it all over again!” If this sounds like you then don’t hesitate to drop me a line! I want to perform your ceremony!
I am currently writing ceremonies for couples across Cambridge, Norfolk and Suffolk who are having hand-fastings, a gin ceremony, garden weddings, a wedding by the sea with a private beach, film themed weddings, village hall weddings, weddings with children, weddings without, comic book vibes and more. ​ If you want someone who takes the time to really ‘get you’ and who can tease out all those special and unique nuances of your relationship then you have found me. ​

We will discuss exactly how you want your ceremony to feel in tone, length and style. You will feel reassured that your ceremony will be a perfect reflection of you, a balance of all the elements that are important and delivered by someone with the love and joy of a friend but the expertise of a professional.

FAQ's:

CAN YOU LEGALLY MARRY US?

Not yet! Humanists UK are campaigning for a change in law. Currently you will need to complete your registration of marriage at a register office with a registrar which most couples do a few days/ a week before their wedding ceremony (costs about £140 in total) and is very brief with set words you must say. You do not need to say any vows, exchange rings or any other ceremonial rituals at this point-all of that is saved for your wedding ceremony with your Celebrant in front of your friends and family.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST AND WHAT IS INCLUDED?

My fee is £950 for weddings. I cover Norfolk and Cambridgeshire, though I am happy to travel further afield reasonable travel expenses will incur. Additional expenses may also be for any ceremony kits you would like to use. For this you will get a passionate Celebrant who wants to create the very best ceremony for you and lots of flexibility plus:

PLANNING:

A first meeting where we will chat about your plans for your day and to see if I am the right Celebrant for you. I like to do this either at your home or another place of your choosing (perhaps one of your fave drinking establishment/cafe) A couples questionnaire- this is where I will find out all the juicy details of your relationship, what makes you tick, what you value about each other, maybe even some pet peeves and ultimately why you want to spend the rest of your lives together. A second meeting and the script reveal! We can work back and forth until you are happy with it if anything needs tweaking. Assistance with vow writing if you need. Assistance with finding readings. Assistance with the selecting of rituals you may like to include i.e. handfasting, etc Assistance with choreography of your ceremony, what happens when, who stands where. Unlimited email/phone access to me if you have any questions/concerns. I can attend your rehersal if you would like, I do like to visit the venue if I haven’t been there before.

ON THE DAY:

Coordination with venue, wedding planner, musicians and photographer to ensure everything runs smoothly. Bridal party briefing for those who may be doing a reading so that they know when to do so. Delivery of your ceremony on your day.

AFTER:

Your wedding ceremony script and massive congratulations!

HOW DO WE BOOK?

I request a non refundable booking fee of £350 to secure your date, £300 prior to script release and the remaining £300 8 weeks before your ceremony.

If you would like to meet me for a no obligation chat then please do get in touch. I would absolutely love to hear from you, and I am very happy to recommend other amazing Celebrants should I be booked on your day. (We are a very lovely, supportive bunch!)
