Your wedding day is one of the best days of your life- so why not make it memorable with a personalised wedding ceremony script that reflects who you are as a couple?
Let me, a trained wedding celebrant, into your world and I will write a wedding ceremony script that is tailored to you. From your readings, special elements and song choices, we will work together to make your wedding ceremony one that will be remembered. I mainly cover weddings in the North East but I'm happy to travel.
My wedding celebrant service also offers a 'our journey' poetry service. This service is exclusive to my brides/grooms, feel free to have a look at this section of the website and let me know if this is something you want incorporated into your wedding ceremony. This poem will tell your story as a couple, how you met, your engagement and beyond!
Special Ceremony Elements
Adding 'special elements' to a wedding ceremony is becoming increasingly popular.
These symbolic rituals can be adapted to reflect your relationship style and the theme of your ceremony.
Below are some ideas but you may have a unique idea you would like to try for your ceremony-
I love new ideas and creations so let me know!
Unity Sand Ceremony
Symbolising the joining of a couple. It involves both partners pouring sand, of two different colours, into a single container, symbolizing their life-long commitment and the joining of their two lives. Family members e.g. children can also be involved.
Roses are presented to the mothers and/or grandmothers as a way of thanking them for their continued support and for raising the person you love.
To signify the joining of two families, the mothers light individual candles to symbolise the couple moving on from their family to create a family together.
Involving one glass of white wine and one glass of red wine, which are poured into a separate glass to create a blush colour that the couple then drink from.
Wine Box Ceremony
The couple will write love letters to each other and seal them in an envelope. They then choose their favourite bottle of alcohol (e.g. wine, gin) and place it in a memorabilia wine box to open on an anniversary of their choice.
Hands are tied with ribbons and cloth to symbolise a relationships strength and unity of the couple and the bringing together of two lives, hearts and families. Literally ‘tying the knot’.
Handfasting can be customised as well to suit the couple e.g. different coloured ribbons to symbolise different strengths in the relationship, a variety of binding materials and different spoken words can be used.
The ring is passed guest to guest, to give good luck through silent wishes.
Flowers of Unity
Both sides of the family are given a different flower, the guests then each put their flower into a vase to create a bouquet to celebrate the coming together of friends/family.
A small tree is placed at the front of the ceremony and prior to the wedding each guest is asked to pick up a small card to write their wishes for you on. During the ceremony, the guests are invited to hang their wishes it on the tree.
Hand prints can work well if you have children in the family. The children will do theirs prior to the day and the parents adds their hand prints to complete the picture.
Ceremony Parchment including up to two witnesses
A brief ceremony involving the couple and two witnesses. Each in turn sign a keepsake parchment or certificate which is then presented to the newlyweds.
Other elements are available and can be discussed.
