The Wedding Ceremonies

We currently offer two options for a full wedding ceremony - bespoke and standard. We hope that the law will soon be changed to allow us to  include the legal formalities within these and also offer a more simple legal marriage as well. 

For a more informal ceremony an affirmation may be suitable. 

An overview of each of the ceremonies is provided below and we can arrange a no obligation meeting to chat through the options after which you can decide if you would like to go ahead. 

With dates being reserved up to two years ahead it's never to soon to get your date into our diary.  We are happy to pencil in multiple dates while you are finalising your arrangements and will contact you if other requests are received for those dates.
