How much do you charge?
My standard ceremony fee is £675, which includes a consultation, script writing, advice and support, as many edits you need, and of course the performance of your ceremony on your special day.
What about other ceremony elements like readings and vows?
I can offer as much or as little guidance as you like when it comes to readings and vows. If you know exactly what you want, then great! If you'd rather give me a brief idea of what you'd like your vows to look like or what kind of readings you want, then that's fine too!
I've heard about ceremonies including 'symbolic elements'. What's that all about?
A symbolic element is something you can include when you're not restricted by a strict registrar time limit, and there are so many you can choose from! I can do sand ceremonies, ring warming, jumping the broom or even a cocktail ceremony if you fancy a cheeky drink during your ceremony!
Will the ceremony be legally binding?
Unfortunately, independent celebrants cannot legally authorise marriage, so you will have to do the legal bit separately. But a lot of couples see this as an opportunity: get the legal ceremony out of the way at a town hall with a couple of witnesses, then go all out in the ceremony proper!
The words in the ceremony and vows were so beautiful and personalised. We loved them because they weren't too corny but had everyone gushing the right amount! We had struggled ourselves to find a good reading online, but the one Cate chose was just perfect and suited our relationship.
Our guests are still talking about our ceremony a month later. Cate really took time to understand our relationship and what we wanted from our ceremony. Every detail was personal and tailored to us. We laughed and cried and it was just perfect! Would definitely recommend for anyone looking for a bespoke wedding ceremony with personality. Thank you so much xxx
