Where can we hold our wedding ceremony?
Almost anywhere your imagination takes you; licensed and unlicensed venues, on the beach, a woodlands, on a boat, a hot air balloon, you just need the owners permission.
Is a celebrant-led ceremony legal?
Currently celebrants in England and Wales aren’t able to legally marry, however couples book an appointment to register their marriage costing around £50 depending on area. This takes around ten minutes to complete and you can go in your everyday clothes and there is no need to exchange rings or personal vows. You can save all the fun parts until your actual wedding day surrounded by family and friends. You are then able to have a personalised ceremony created for you without strict rules and restrictions that matches your style and personalities, bringing some humour and the most beautiful moments to your wedding ceremony.
Can we include our children in the ceremony?
Yes! Absolutely yes and I have lots of ways to do this depending on their age and how you would like to involve them. I would love to hear more about any plans you have and I can guide you where needed.
Can we include a unity ceremony?
Unity ceremonies are a beautiful way to symbolise your lives now blending together. There are many unity ceremonies to choose from. I often share these on my social media pages and we can chat more about the different choices and how they can be incorporated in your ceremony.
Hi Gem , thank you so much for making our ceremony such a special moment, we loved every second, you were amazing and made it so personal to Ashley , Bertie and i we really can’t thank you enough, our guests come up and said how lovely it was and they really enjoyed the Sand Cermony and it’s lovely to have that to look back at and treasure.
I just want to say thankyou so much for everything you did for our wedding, the script was just so perfect, and the amount of complements we had from our guests about how beautifully worded it was and how intimate it was was amazing. They all said it was so nice for it all to be so personal compared to a standard wedding. I've popped in a couple photos we had from the photographer too. Again, thankyou so much! Xx
Hi Gem, We just want to thankyou so much for making our day so special on Sunday. The script you read was fantastic and captured me and Pete to a tee. Thank you so very much. Debbie and Pete x
Hi Gem, Wes and I would like to say a huge thank you for being part of our wedding and making it so special. Although having a non legal ceremony wasn’t our first plan, we’re so pleased it worked out that way. The ceremony was so personal and beautiful and everyone (and I actually mean everyone) said how lovely it was. There were lots of tears, even from Wes’s dad and my hardened army uncle. I’m a strong believer that everything happens for a reason and my mishap with giving notice definitely worked out for the best. Thank you also for the print out of the ceremony script.
Thank you, Gem. The ceremony was absolutely perfect. The script you wrote was beautiful, thank you for allowing us to do things differently and making it all work so beautifully xx
