WONDERFUL WEDDING CEREMONY – YOUR WAY
by Martina Paul
Cotswolds Wedding Planner and Celebrant
Any wedding is a very individual affair. The taste of the bride is crucial and timekeeping of the groom necessary.
Getting the look and feel to the wedding day is pretty much easy sailing as girls usually have an idea a long time before boys have put the ring on it.
And as you know you can choose the dreamy place in an amazing setting for your wedding reception, however, you might be stopped by the legalities to do the same with the wedding ceremony.
Ironically the most important part of the wedding, where you make your life lasting promises to each other, is the most inflexible one.
A UK marriage ceremony must be performed by an authorized person and be witnessed by two people.
This means couples must choose between an approved religious ceremony, a registry office ceremony, or a registrar who will come to the wedding at a licensed venue.
This 20-minute ceremony will have a set text where only names are exchanged from wedding to wedding.
Not very personal, not very meaningful and for a substantial amount of money especially if you wish to get married on a Saturday.
Of course, it does not have to be this way. Nobody should dictate what your special day should look and feel like.
Hi, my name is Martina and I am a wedding celebrant.
I meet couples and make their perfect ceremony come true by writing and officiating their own bespoke one.
Be it sunrise, sunset, the countryside, the beach or under a blossom tree. You could have the beautiful setting you always dreamed of when whispering your chosen vows to each other.
A perfect love affair, wonderful wedding ceremony – your perfect day.
