Find a celebrant who is supportive of your lifestyle choices and beliefs
I believe that your love and commitment are the most important prerequisites for a meaningful wedding ceremony. Because I am a non-denominational celebrant, your ceremony can be religious (incorporating any faith tradition), spiritual, or humanist. I will ask questions, learn about you as a couple and make suggestions. YOU will make the decisions!
Set the tone for your ceremony
Some people want the wedding to be a joyful ceremony, others want it to be a solemn occasion. What do you want? I do not officiate at “cookie cutter” weddings. I will help you create a ceremony that is personal, unique and memorable.
Be inclusive and considerate of each other’s beliefs
You will want to take into consideration the religious traditions or life views of the bride, groom and both of your families. If you are of different faiths or spiritual beliefs, it is important to be inclusive and considerate of each other’s beliefs. I will help you find ways to balance everyone’s needs and share options for special additions to your ceremony.
Create a ceremony that reflects who you are
You want your wedding ceremony to reflect the two of you. What do you think about life and love? What is your spiritual perspective? You may want this most important moment in your life to reflect your core beliefs, your truest feelings. In the course of our planning, we will talk about your beliefs, your history, your dreams and your feelings about each other and your future.
Remember that a ceremony built on your values, beliefs, and dreams will speak eloquently about your hopes for your life together.
A wedding happens in a day. A successful marriage happens over a lifetime. When the words of your ceremony reflect the commitment you have for each other, you express the expectations you have for your future. A wedding is formally choosing a trusted partner with whom you commit to building that future. I will ask you to choose all the words of your ceremony carefully since they are the foundation of the promises you will make to each other. Your involvement in the process of creating your ceremony is important because it is the public expression of your intent for the future!
