What kind of bespoke ceremony writing do you create?

I can create all sorts of different bespoke ceremony elements, suitable for any wedding, as well as a legally-compliant full script for your Registrar-led ceremony. On my site you’ll find details of my bespoke readings; ‘Story so far’ and ‘The Why’ sections; declarations, vows and ring exchanges; symbolic act writing and well-wishing poems. I also offer a ceremony consultancy service.

What kind of bespoke reception writing do you create?

My bespoke wedding reception range includes everything from single toasts written with one contributor’s words, to a mirror-image pair of speeches for a newly married couple, through to multi-part performance pieces presented by more than one speaker, all created to complement each other perfectly. I write with your own words and/or those of nominated family and friends, chosen by you.

What qualifications and experience do you have?

I’ve been a professional writer for 13+ years and currently run 3 bespoke writing businesses: Words and Wisdom, Portraits in Prose and Your Three Days. I am a seasoned Celebrant as well as a writer and so all my ceremony and reception writing is based on real experience. Find out more about my other writing in the final question below.

Where do you work?

I don’t have to be physically present at any point in this very flexible process, which means I can write for anyone, anywhere, based in the UK or abroad. In the last 13+ years I have worked for the widest range of clients imaginable, based all over the world. All that matters is that the beauty of bespoke writing appeals.

What are your fees?

That really depends on what I’m creating. You’ll find guide prices on my site, but the best way to get an accurate figure is for me to create a tailored quote. It will be influenced by 3 factors: the length of the writing, its complexity and how many people are contributing to it. If time allows, flexible payment is possible.

Do you create other bespoke wedding writing too?

Yes, I certainly do. I write innovative Portraits in Prose: bespoke texts you can use to create a delightful photo book celebrating your engagement or marriage. I also design, write and lead exceptional Your Three Days humanist weddings in Yorkshire, the Peak District and North West. All 3 of my sites are linked so you can easily move between them.

'The feedback has been amazing (tears of happiness from guests) with everyone telling us all day they've never been to a ceremony like it. Hannah is your only option if you want an A-class wedding. We cannot thank her enough.'
