The ceremony of your choice can take place anywhere, there are no limits. It might be your garden, the beach, a hotel, a private estate or any other venue that may be meaningful to you.
Maybe you want to do the legal side of things quietly and privately but then have a celebration ceremony, perhaps with a best man, bridesmaids, flower girls, hymns, exchanging of rings and a photographer, in fact, the works.
Perhaps you are having a beach wedding somewhere hot or exotic and only very close family can join you, but you would like to have a bigger celebration once you are home. You can say your vows all over again, but this time with all your family and friends joining you.
It might be that it is a second marriage for one or both of you and you would like to celebrate the coming together of your families. It is lovely for step children to be involved in the ceremony and this can be done in many ways; maybe the lighting of a unity candle or the performing of a sand ceremony to symbolise the blending of your two families.
You are not governed by set times or restrictions on content, it is about making a unique ceremony for you both. It is one of the most important events in your life, which you will remember forever. I look forward to working together with you to capture your words, thoughts and emotions to create the perfect ceremony just for you.
My name is Clare and I am a fully qualified professional celebrant based in the Suffolk countryside, where I live with my grown up family.
Whether you are planning a Wedding & Civil Partnership, Commitment Ceremony, Renewal of Vows or Naming Ceremony, I want you to have the best day possible. Your Ceremony is something special to remember and cherish forever and it is my role to help you achieve that.
