Ceremony Choreography

  • When you choose me as your Celebrant you'll get a Wedding Ceremony Starter Pack ~ a treasure trove of ideas, creative concepts, vows & readings!
  • It's important to reflect who you are and your values, so we'll add any special touches to make it even more meaningful & unique to you.
  • There will be lots of time for you to think about how you would like to translate your love for one another in spoken word as well as through music & readings.
  • Then the magic happens! I get creative & choreograph your ceremony format so it's uplifting & incorporates all your chosen elements seamlessly.
  • Your Ceremony will celebrate 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'll 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 ~ 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'll 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 vows to each other ~ solemn & serious, quirky & cute.
  • 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 ~ & that's what I'm here for ~ to provide you with inspiration & idea starters to help handcraft your own vows.
  • Or you can simply honour tradition & choose words from the Starter Pack that are sweet & true.
  • Remember ~ never over think, use words that convey your speaking style & go with what your heart tells you.
