Civil Ceremony

Civil Weddings - Wedding Celebrant

Sharing the future together ...

To love someone is nothing,
To be loved by someone is something,
But to be loved by the one that you love is everything.

An increasing number of couples feel that they want a more inspiring wedding ceremony than that being offered by a registrar or, at the other end of the scale, by the imposition of religious requirements which are forced onto them.

The great advantage therefore of having civil weddings is that you can mix words, feelings, poetry and music to match your own feelings that you have for each other. But most importantly it is you that can create and make the vows that you want without the constraints of either religious or registrars wording as required by law.

Together with you I will create a ceremony which is unique and will combine an air of formality with the joy of celebration and which will reflect what you really want. It will therefore become special to you as a couple. Your wedding day is without doubt one of the most important milestones of your life. You will be asking your family and friends to share in your happiness and to witness your commitment to each other. Should they want to participate I encourage relatives and friends to contribute by making a reading, saying a few words or by playing some live music during the ceremony.

Civil weddings themselves, can take place either indoors or outdoors - it will all depend on the venues' suitability. More often than not, the wedding celebrant conducts civil weddings at a hotel or in a beautiful garden, but it can just as easily be held by a river, in a wood, on a hill top or by the sea!

Civil weddings therefore give you plenty of choices - from the venue, to the vows, to the readings, to the music etc so that you can have the ceremony that you really want with myself as the wedding celebrant.

IMPORTANT - Please be aware that Civil Weddings are not legal marriages. Legal marriage formalities in the UK can only be undertaken by a registrar or a minister of religion - except in Scotland where other regulations apply.
