Fees

Celebrant - led Weddings

My fees will be different for everyone as they are based on your individual requirements.

I will gather lots of information from you about the type of ceremony you want, what time of year you are holding the ceremony, the venue you are planning to hold it in and if you are considering a mini ceremony such as a Hand-tying or Candle ceremony.  All of this information will be used to tailor the quote for you.

My fee is fully inclusive of a pre-wedding meeting ( either face to face or via Skype), unlimited contact with you by phone or email, creating, writing and presenting the ceremony, any revisions to the script, readings and vows presented on decorative card, a rehearsal and my travel expenses on the day. I also include a Keepsake folder and copy of the ceremony wording for you along with a commemorative certificate. 

Additional costs are only invoiced if you instruct me to purchase an item on your behalf eg Unity Candle set or you want something completely different included, eg a Baby naming ceremony included within the wedding.

 

Weddings in a box

Sometimes you may have somebody who is perfectly willing and able to present your ceremony for you, however, you still require someone to create this for you. 

I offer a service whereby everything is created as above for you, however, your ceremony script, certificate, readings and vows are posted to you in a beautifully created keepsake box which allows someone else to present your ceremony wherever you are in the world.
