If you’d like to contact me with some initial questions or just for a chat about your ceremony, then drop me a line.
I’D LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU
Telephone: 07881 944827
WHAT DO WE NEED TO DO FOR THE LEGAL ‘BITS’?
I am unable to conduct a legal binding ceremony.
For your marriage to be recognised by law, you must complete the legal formalities at a licensed venue. Rates for this begin at £46-50. I recommend completing the legalities before your Celebrant Wedding Ceremony (28 days notice is required) so as to avoid complications on the day and allow more freedom with your personal ceremony. Please contact your local authority for information about legal formalities.
There are restrictions with registrar-led legal ceremonies and although I am happy to work alongside registrars, this may not be the case vice versa!
WHERE CAN WE HAVE OUR CEREMONY WITH YOU?
ANYWHERE!! In a field, top of a mountain, on a boat, in a woodland, in a shed, in a bark garden, in a building, in a swimming pool………………the list is endless as we can perform ceremonies anywhere and anytime of day! The venue/location does not need to have a legal licence for a celebrant led ceremony.
ARE YOU INSURED?
Yes indeed. I have full public liability insurance covered by my FPC Membership.
WE ARE UNSURE!! CAN WE HAVE A CHAT WITH YOU?
No problem and absolutely! If you are umming and arghh-ing about what to do, then the cost of a chat is free. For initial consultations, we can arrange a meeting via social media for an initial chat or if you are within 5-10 miles of my local area, then a face-to-face meeting is certainly the best way of getting to know each other! Plus any excuse to meet up for a beer or piece of cake is wonderful!
Please note that for initial meetings, I do ask that these are arranged 5-10 miles to where I am based yet any meetings further afield can be arranged but may incur a travel expenses fee.
If you live abroad and are getting married in the UK, social media meetings are the best platform for communication.
ON THE DAY, WHAT TIME DO YOU ARRIVE AND HOW LONG DO YOU STAY?
On the day of the wedding, I will arrive at the venue at least an hour beforehand. After the ceremony, if I do not have other engagements, I always love to stay and chat with you and your guests and of course will never say no to a free drink or food! Yorkshire!
This is what many folk want to know the most!!
There is no charge for the initial enquiry meeting to see if we are right for each other. I am happy to travel 10 miles out of York to meet you and if you choose me, I am then happy to travel to your house or area of living for further meetings.
If you book myself, I will send a contract for confirmation of booking and request for a non-refundable deposit.
