Weddings and ceremonies

Wedding day celebrations

A wedding with a difference?

Our Wedding Day Celebration package gives you additional freedoms over that of a traditional civil ceremony to develop a ceremony that is more in tune with modern thinking and your lifestyle choices. The main benefit of this ceremony package is that your ceremony can take place anywhere you choose* for example that could be under a marquee in a favourite garden, under the stars, or in your local car park! A place that has a special meaning to you.

The wedding day celebration package includes the celebration with family, friends and guests and the legal formalities. If you want something unique and different that will be remembered by everyone, this could be just want you want.

How it works

You still need to complete the legal formalities, however we can help you to navigate through the legal processes, and leave you free to concentrate on your celebratory ceremony.

In this case the legal marriage takes place in the registrar's office with yourselves and 2 witnesses. You then have the celebration with your family, friends and guests but the celebration is where you want it and how you want it.

The benefit

Together we design your ceremony. You choose the content and design, we look after the legal stuff and deliver your day your way.

What's included?

  • Celebration ceremony at a location of your choice*
  • Office registration (the legal marriage) with the couple and 2 witnesses of your choice
  • Health and safety inspection
  • Notice of marriage
  • Planning form for you to personalise your ceremony with your choice of readings and music
