My business is my pleasure. And because it is my pleasure, I do whatever I can to ensure your special day is everything you dreamed it would be. It is my desire to create a beautiful experience for you and your guests.
As your officiant let me help you tell your Love Story by creating a memorable ceremony. With the information you give me, I create a personalized, unique ceremony just for you …. with just a wee twist of fun in it. I have worn running shoes and rang marathon cow bells when I performed a wedding ceremony for an elite running couple. I performed a Disney themed wedding, with the entire ceremony personalized with many Disney quotes. A Harry Potter themed wedding, complete with wands, spells and enchantments.
Ceremony enhancements are a wonderful way to declare the intent of your ceremony. I will write a personal and customized ceremony incorporating the enhancements you choose. I can also design the ceremony around the inclusion of family members, children, parents, grandparents, etc.
I specialize in intimate, personalized wedding ceremonies. Do you have a beautiful back garden? Do you want to get married in the forest? Let me help you create the perfect ceremony around you life, your loves and each other.
Wedding Ceremony Enhancements
Have you ever wondered where the term “tying the knot” came from? It refers to the ancient ritual of hand-fasting which was recognized as a binding contract of marriage before marriage became a legal function of the government and responsibility of the church. During a hand-fasting, the couple repeats vows and their hands are bound together after each vow with a cord that signifies the joining of their lives in a sacred union.
Wine Box Time Capsule
Adding this ritual to your ceremony is sure to elicit oooh’s and ahhhh’s from your family and guests. A few weeks before the ceremony, the couple take the time privately to write love letters to each other expressing their feeling at the time. The letters are sealed with their partners name on the front. During the ceremony, the letters, a bottle of wine, two goblets and any other mementos are placed into the box – to be opened and shared at a wedding anniversary of the couples choice.
The Rose ceremony symbolizes the merging of two families and pays respect to the first women who taught the couple about love – their mothers. At a chosen point in the ceremony, each respective partner will give a rose to their new mother-in-law.
The unity candle represents the merging of two into one inseparable unit. This ritual has two parts. At the beginning of the ceremony the couple lights their individual candles. These two candles burn during the wedding ceremony. Following the exchange of vows and rings, the two candles are brought together lighting a centre candle and the ritual is completed by blowing out the individual candles.
