Trained with the Fellowship of Independent Celebrants
I'm not going to say "you can't have this piece of music, or this poem"
I'm happy to go anywhere
(though I draw the line at jumping out of an aeroplane)
There are no rules when it comes to devising your own ceremony
By separating the legal process from the ceremony, restrictions over content, venue and costs are removed.
Treating legal marriage registration as separate from ceremonies and celebrations, in the same way as we do for births and deaths, means that you do not have to have a Registrar or a Religious Officiant present at your wedding ceremony. This, in turn, means that you can have your ceremony in an unlicensed venue, which reduces cost, quite dramatically.
Your ceremony can take place a couple of hours, days, weeks or months after the legal registration at the Register Office. You are then not restricted to a set legal format, which also allows you to incorporate spiritual language, music and literature, these are not permitted in Registry offices, or Licensed venues with a Registrar present.
ANYTHING, ANYTIME, ANYWHERE

I'm based in the centre of England but am happy to travel wherever I am needed.
