YOUR FOUR STEPS
At Our Second Meeting…
Our second meeting or planning session, is all about the two of you! I’m keen to learn about your love story and all that makes you the loved-up couple that you are. I’ll do my absolute best when composing and delivering your unique ceremony.
Ceremony & Vows
LET’S GET CREATIVE! We’ll chat about the ceremony you have in mind, the elements or rituals you might like to include and the words you must include. I’ll encourage you both to share your story. I’ll ask questions about you, your family and friends. Your personalities and love story will inspire the ceremony I create for you. Ceremonies generally take around 30 minutes to complete, however, we can take as long as you feel is right to express your love and commitment to one another. If you’re eager to get on with the celebrations, we can make it short and sweet. Whatever your preference, your ceremony will be memorable and uniquely yours.
We’ll also discuss the options availble to you around writing your vows. I’m happy to offer as little or as much assistance as you feel comfortable with. You can create your own vows from the beginning, or I can assit with templates or pre-written vows. You may also like to include some secret vows. Your vows should reflect what you would like to say to the person you are about to marry. If they feel right for you, they are.
GOOD TO KNOW If we haven’t already completed your pre-marriage paperwork, we’ll do it at this meeting. You will need to provide me with evidence of your date and place of birth, your identity and the end of any previous marriages for each party. I may also ask you to complete a statutory declaration to support your evidence. I’ll let you know exactly what to bring along to our second meeting. I’m happy to assist you with this, please ask me! You can read my guide to pre-marriage paperwork here.
Following our planning meeting
I’ll be inspired and eager to channel my creativity and start crafting your bespoke love story. I’ll be in touch to arrange a catch up with you when I’ve completed the first draft of your ceremony. From there we can edit to your heart’s content. I’m here to make sure you’re 110% over the moon happy with your ceremony. If you have any questions or need any help please get in contact with me.
