I am a Celebrant based in Kent but travel to the Home Counties and London – further if I am asked.
Getting to know couples is so important. This is about you as a couple, encompassing your dreams and wishes into the ceremony. Chatting to you (via Zoom these days) and getting to know one another. Taking time to listen and agreeing on the thoughts you may desire for your wedding.
Each ceremony is discussed in detail, and there is only one ceremony per day so there is no rush or dramas. Letting me alleviate the stress of wondering how the ceremony will go. It will go just as planned, because we together have dotted the i’s and crossed the t’s. Making a memory of your day.
I offer 4 wedding packages starting at £400 to suit all budgets In each package, you’ll receive a bespoke script tailored to your personalities and ideas. Elements such as the unity candle ceremony or Handfasting give proceedings a more personal touch. Family and friends can also get involved. .
During 2021 I aim to be flexible as I can should the situation arise and your wedding date has to be moved.
Just think how romantic an outdoor wedding in the wonderful Garden of Kent could be. The trend for outdoor weddings is growing.
Kent is known for green rolling hills, fertile soils and an abundance of fruit growing and hop gardens.
Turning to green, how about a Green wedding? These have a focus on the environment, incorporating such elements as zero waste, low carbon footprint, sustainability and organically farmed food and flowers.
There are so many venues a couple can marry in. Have you heard of a Wilderness Wedding? Your Celebrant led wedding could take place by a lake in a woodland. The woodland will be full of wild birds, flowers and butterflies. Sounds truly magical.
Thinking of having your ceremony in a barn. There are many in Kent. Choose a converted granary and hop barn. May be a rural barn with a vaulted wood beamed interior and beautiful gardens.
A marquee in a garden, gazebo or a walled garden on a country estate. Another outdoor place is a bandstand. How lovely to have a small band playing in the background.
What if it rains you may ask. Yes, in fact it is lucky if it rains. This means that your marriage will last. By tying the knot (as in Handfasting which a Celebrant does) it may become wet and hard to untie. You are then bound together. This is where “tying the knot” expression comes from.
Remember if a Celebrant is performing the wedding ceremony, this does not have to take place on licensed grounds. Get the legalities done before the celebrant led wedding.
This is just a glimpse of what Kent and I can offer with outdoor and eco weddings. Have an umbrella handy – just in case!
