Stranger Things – Who Will Conduct Your Ceremony?

I think it’s fair to say that your wedding day is high up on the momentous life events list. It therefore completely baffles me that most couples, who choose a civil ceremony, are happy for this huge occasion to be officiated by a total stranger.

All Talk No Action – Script Only Services

Are you thinking of getting married in a faraway exotic location but don’t want to use the venue’s prescriptive script?    Or perhaps you have a friend or family member you would love to present your wedding ceremony here at home but don’t want to give them the added pressure of writing the script?  In either of these situations you may be interested to hear that I offer a script only service.

Creating Vows from Inspirational Music

Over the years I have collected quite a selection of inspirational music. Some well-known ones but also some slightly more obscure pieces. Being a music fan, I particularly like lyrics to songs and find incorporating them into your wedding ceremony, either as part of your vows or as a reading or musical interlude, the perfect way to say something beautiful if you are struggling to find the words yourself.

Finding The Right Wedding Reading

Readings are traditionally a common part of any wedding ceremony. But finding the right one (and one that hasn’t already been used at your sister’s/friend’s/cousin’s/next door neighbour’s wedding) is quite a challenge.

Secret Vows For A Truly Heartfelt Wedding at Baron Hill Farm

On a dreary January day there is nothing better to lift the spirits than casting my mind back to a wonderful warm (boiling in fact) summer day last July.  I was back at Barons Hill Farm to conduct a ceremony, this time for the delightful Kirsty and Tom.
