Weddings and commitment ceremonies

An inclusive and welcoming celebrant for your wedding, civil partnership or commitment ceremony

As an ordained Interfaith Minister, I can help you create a ceremony that truly reflects you and what matters to you.

Creating a ceremony that reflects who you are

For many of us, when we decide to make a commitment to the one(s) we love, we feel there are limited choices available in terms of venue and setting.

Maybe you want to get married but not in a church. Maybe you want a civil partnership, but you also want a separate commitment ceremony where you can express what this commitment means to both of you. Maybe you want to celebrate your commitment in a completely different way, but want support creating and guiding the event so it’s just as meaningful and sacred as a more traditional event.

What’s different about hiring you as our celebrant?

I won’t simply turn up and trot out a bland, formulaic ceremony with the ‘religious bits stripped out’. We’ll get together around a totally blank slate, starting with the question ‘what kind of ceremony do you want?’ We’ll discuss things like music, location, how you’d like to involve loved ones, alternative readings and anything else you’d like to include.

Frequently asked questions

Q: Do I need to be religious?
A: Not at all. Interfaith Ministry means supporting others to express their unique, personal approach to life. My view is that life itself is sacred, and I embrace what matters to each unique client.

Q: How does it work?
A: First, we’ll have a brief telephone conversation to explore whether we’d like to work together. If after this initial chat, you decide you’d like to book me, we’ll sort the paperwork.

Then, we’ll have a meeting (in-person or Zoom, depending on where you live) to discuss what you’re looking for. This is where the dreaming and planning starts!

After we’ve met, I’ll go away and draw up a proposed ceremony. You’ll take a look and continue to tweak it until it’s perfect for you.

Nearer the time, we’ll meet again to go over any final details. Wherever possible, we’ll also have a pre-ceremony rehearsal the day or morning before to smooth any final details, but I find the best part about the rehearsal is it often soothes any pre-match nerves and gets you excited for the real thing!
