‘You're more than a wedding celebrant... you're like a wedding doula!’ Hayley
Your wedding Ceremony!
A humanist ceremony is NOTHING like a registrar wedding... so stop that comparison Right Now. There are no templates, no paragraphs that get repeated over and over from ceremony to ceremony, no strict starting times: it will be what YOU want it to be!
And as Hayley says above - I'll be like your wedding doula! I'll guide you right through the process of putting your ceremony together, so you can go from "Sophie, we don't even know where to start!" to "Sophie, this is SO US and we love every word of it!"
There's so much choice! Symbolic acts are always popular, whether that is the common practice of exchanging rings, older traditions such as hand-fasting and candle-lighting... or even some newer ideas such as sand-blending or tree planting. (I mean, you *might* even end up saying "Yes, the umbrella with sticky tape and streamers sound just perfect!" but that's another story....)
Want your guests to play a big part? Let's do it! Want your pooch involved? Of course you do! Want your wild-card uncle to stand up and deliver some off-the-cuff thoughts for over10 minutes? (Woah... that might not make the cut!) I'm here to make sure that you and your guests will be BUZZING!
Choosing the right Celebrant
Let's chat! I'd love to meet up with you online (or in person locally in Liverpool) so you can get the chance to see if you think we're a good match.
For me, the most important part of being chosen as your celebrant is that we’ll have had the chance to get to know each other. When there's the chance of feeling the pressure on the big day itself, you'll know there will be someone right up there at the front with you who knows and loves your quirks, someone who's got your back... and I'm not just talking about your significant other!
