Every occasion and celebration is unique, and every ceremony can be as simple or elaborate and bespoke as you choose – it’s your day, your way, and your choice.
There are many options and ideas to consider when creating your dream ceremony, which we will chat about in detail when we meet.
My initial meeting is always conducted on a no-obligation, no-charge basis* and will last for 1-1.5 hours, regardless of which ceremony level you choose.
I understand that budgeting is extremely important to you both, and prefer that my fees are totally transparent. Therefore I offer a clear pricing structure.
Following our meeting/s, creating and writing the ceremony, a rehearsal if required and is feasible, unlimited phone and email contact, a commemorative certificate, and my officiant services on the day.
This is paid in 2 parts, your deposit within 7 days, and the balance a minimum of 4 weeks before the ceremony.
Additional costs, discussed and agreed on together:
Symbolic element, such as:
Hand-fasting ribbons, sand ceremony kit, unity candle set etc – these range from £30-£100.
You can purchase them yourselves if you prefer, and I can point you to the right places. Or I can source and prepare them on your behalf.
We would discuss your preferences and fix your budget for these items during our second meeting.
Travel: if I need to travel further than 35 miles from my home address, then mileage after the first 35 miles is charged at the current HMRC rate of 0.45p.
Accommodation: if distance and timings make this necessary – sometimes you just can’t trust the motorways to get me there on time, so I would travel the day before.
If any of the above additions are applicable, these are added to your final invoice, which is due no later than 4 weeks before the ceremony date.
For ceremonies booked with less than 6 weeks notice, the full amount is payable at the time of booking.
Any questions, please ask!
