Wedding Ceremony in a Private Garden
If you have a lovely garden, hosting your wedding ceremony in your own outdoor haven offers a truly intimate and personal ambiance, along with added sentimental value for the ceremony. Gardens can be effortlessly transformed into a magical wonderland with the twinkle of fairy lights and the warm glow of candles. When it comes to outdoor weddings, rest assured that I can provide a PA system if needed.
Ceremony at Licensed Wedding Venues
If you prefer to choose a licensed wedding venue, the decision is yours to choose either a Registrar or a Celebrant-led ceremony. Registrar ceremonies are limited in time and can sometimes feel rather rushed, mainly because Registrars often officiate multiple weddings during a single day.
As a Celebrant, my focus is entirely on one wedding per day, creating a relaxed and personal atmosphere. What's more, unlike a Registrar, I take the time to get to know you several months before your big day. This means that when your ceremony arrives, you'll have peace of mind of knowing exactly who'll be conducting your special ceremony. All you need to do is reserve your venue and let the venue co-ordinator know that you'd like a celebrant-led ceremony. If you should find the procedure rather overwhelming, I'm more than happy to organise this. I always co-ordinate with your wedding planner, venue co-ordinator, photographer, musician, and others to make sure your ceremony is tailored to your preferences.

Do I need to pay both a Registrar and a Celebrant?
No, you don't pay a Registrar's attendance fee in addition to a Celebrant's fee when you opt for a licensed wedding venue. (Registrar's current fees: approximately £460 to £600, subject to variations based on the day of the week and registration district. These fees increase annually.)
