Wedding And Civil Partnership Celebrant London
When it comes to ceremony design and content the
world's your oyster!
We can meet on Zoom or other video platform for an initial ideas sharing no-obligation chat. I will be very happy to fit in with what works best for you.
Once you have decided you would like to go ahead with me, we will become a creative team for the duration of our time working together. I will spend time with you get to know you and your story and the people and things that are most important to you.
Step one: Planning your ceremony
The process of creating your unique celebration ceremony is as individual as you are.
During the planning phase, I will be finding out about your love story and your dreams for your future along with lots more about you and other important people in your lives. We'll get to talk about how you've chosen your venue and what feel and look you have in mind. You might want to bring together different family cultures and traditions and we can build these into the mix.
Step two: Designing your ceremony
However you have imagined for your ceremony, I will work closely
with you to create it just for you with the greatest care and attention.
I will write, structure and craft your unique story which will be at the heart of your celebration.It will include the elements and people who matter most to you and what you want to include.
I know that as you are planning and thinking through ideas, you'll want to chat them over with me. I want to help you minimise what can be a stressful time and we’ll keep in touch via email, phone or video calls. It’s important that you enjoy the planning of your special day!
Remember it's your ceremony, so if you would like any changes or additions, just let me know. I want to make sure that your script is just right for you.
In advance of your ceremony you might decide that you’d like a rehearsal and we can discuss the benefits of this during the planning process.
Step Three: On the day
I will arrive early to your venue to make sure that the ceremony space is just right. I will check in with you both to make sure you are happy with everything and will be there to meet your guests as they arrive.

"From the very start Carole was extremely easy to talk to and professional. She really got to know us and captured our story. We wanted a fun and relaxed ceremony and she delivered exactly that! We cant thank Carole enough for the time and patience she put into getting our story right. Even when our child was crying and screaming on our big day during our ceremony, Carole improvised and brought the attention back to us on our special day and made a few jokes as to why our little one was throwing a tantrum which brought the tone back to how we wanted our ceremony to be, funny and relaxed. We recommend Carole to anyone as she has done so many different types of ceremonies, she has the skills to adapt it to how you want it. Thanks again and was a pleasure getting to know you as much as you loved
getting to know us"
