Words - With no set rules or restrictions for your special day, I can help you

Frequently asked questions

Q. What about the Legal aspect in UK?
  • Currently in England and Wales only Registrars and designated religious clergy & officiants can legally complete the paperwork for the marriage documents. This means that (for the time being) this part remains separate to your Wedding Celebration Ceremony. You can arrange to visit the Register Office to formalise the paperwork at a time convenient to you - which may be on the morning of your wedding or a day or two before. We suggest you don't exchange rings before the Registrar.
  • I do not need to see any documentation in order to conduct your wedding celebration, it is entirely up to you when you hold your legal marriage. Most of my couples make the arrangements a day or two before and attend wearing 'jeans and T shirts' without any guests.
  • Your guests need not know your Creative Wedding Celebration Ceremony doesn't include the legal documentation.  This is not a problem. I deliver a ceremony which is very similar to that of a Civil Registrar led wedding.  Most guests at weddings don't even realise it doesn't include the legal aspect, they are always pleasantly surprised at how personal it is!

Q. How do we arrange the Legal Registration in UK?
  • Give notice of your marriage at your local Register Office. This costs £33.50 per person.
  • An authority for the marriage is issued by the Superintendant Registrar, and you are free to get married in any district by submitting your completed marriage notice forms to the Registrar of Marriages in the area of your choice for marriage.
  • Arrange your legal marriage ceremony whenever you want - before or after your wedding ceremony – on the day itself, or a day or two before. You can literally go in your jeans!
  • The marriage ceremony at the Register Office will take approximately 10-15 minutes.
  • A short statement about marriage will be given and you will be required to repeat a legal declaration.
  • You do not exchange rings. This will be done after saying your vows at the Wedding Celebration Ceremony.
  • The marriage register is signed by you both and your two witnesses.
  • A marriage at the Register Office will cost £40.00 plus £3.50 for the certificate. Including the notice it will cost just over £100.
  • You then are free to enjoy your Wedding Celebration Ceremony without any restriction on content.
                 
Q. Where can the ceremony be held?
  • I will work with you to create a "uniquely you" wedding ceremony - and that includes location.  I officiate weddings on the beach, or in gardens, in a park or by a pool, in your home or on a houseboat, in barns and on bridges, in churches and chapels, mansions and museums, hotels and halls, coffee shops and castles, at a B&B or a football field, in a tent or in a tree house!
    In fact, any place that has special meaning for you. You are only restricted by your imagination.
 
Q: Does it matter what religion we practice?
  • Not at all. I serve you in a way that brings joy to your day. I am just comfortable serving you in the manner that helps you live out your own spiritual experience, whether devoutly Christian, Jewish, Muslin, atheist, or purely spiritual or any religoin. It is common for couples coming to see me to be from different religious traditions. Together we work to ensure that both are represented as much as practical.
 
Q: Can we include elements of different religions and traditions in our ceremony?
  • Of course! These make for interesting, rich, meaningful ceremonies. I work with you and your various traditions to put together a ceremony that truly reflects your wishes.
