Ceremony Choreography

  • When you choose me as your Celebrant I'll give you a Wedding Ceremony Starter Pack ~ a treasure trove of ideas, creative concepts, vows & readings!
  • I love to highlight your personalities so we'll add any special touches to make it even more meaningful & unique to you.
  • We'll allow time for you to think about how best you would like to translate your love for one another in spoken word, through music & readings.
  • Then the magic happens! I get creative & choreograph your ceremony format so it is uplifting & incorporates all your chosen elements seamlessly.
  • Your Ceremony will celebrates your love for one another in your own intimately personalised way ~ because there is no other Love Story like yours.
  • As your Wedding Reception MC & On the Day Co-ordinator we’ll work in a similar way when creating your Reception format & flow ~ called a Reception Run Sheet.

Your Love Story

  • As your Marriage Celebrant, my priority is to add sparkle to your Ceremony.  One way is with a personally crafted version of Your Love Story ~ based on the things you share with me during our Free 1st Meeting.
  • You will get more chances to make your Ceremony awesome through another fun touch I offer ~ but shhhh... it's a secret!
  • This is a major moment in your relationship ~ it's a once in a lifetime chance for you to relive what brought the two of you together, the milestones you've achieved as a committed couple & the happy memories you've made leading up to your big day!
  • Of course, you will get the opportunity to approve/edit/amend ~ this is your story & it has to be perfect.
  • Your Love Story is enchanting ~&  for your Reception we can include other special touches like interactive games if you want added fun & to engage guests!

Craft your Vows

  • This is where you exchange your heartfelt promises ~ solemn & serious, quirky & cute ~ & make your life long promises to each other.
  • But how do you sum up your incredible relationship full of memories, moments, emotions, hopes & dreams in just a few words?
  • My couples say this is the most overwhelming part of the process ~ however, I'm here to provide you with inspiration, guidance & idea starters to help you handcraft your own momentous vows.
  • Or you can simply honour tradition & choose words from the Starter Pack that are true & sweet, but sum it all up nicely.
  • Remember ~ never over think them, keep it in words that convey your style & go with what your heart is telling you.
