A commitment ceremony is intended for any adult couple that wish to celebrate their commitment to each other without undergoing a legal marriage or civil partnership. As with any celebrant led ceremony, there are no rules.
An exchange of rings, promises or vows can be made - whatever way you wish to symbolise and affirm your feelings for each other and for a future together.
There are no legalities connected with a commitment.

Choices available for your day
Content - The main reason to use a Celebrant is to have the content of your ceremony written for you and about you. Your guests should be sitting there, totally engrossed in the stories I am relaying about you and they should be thinking "this is so you!"
This also means you have full choice of music, hymns, readings - with no rules about religious content
Venue - You can hold your ceremony anywhere to suit you - indoors or outdoors. From grand hotels to intimate and less fussy community halls, maybe even your favourite restaurant!
Vows that Wow - You probably wish to make your commitment with the exchange of vows and these can be written by you (with my help if you wish) and should be very meaningful to you as a couple.
Guest Participation - there are so many ways we can involve other guests within your ceremony. As simple as performing a reading or maybe a sand blending ceremony which allows you and perhaps your children to create a unique keepsake from your day

Price - So, what's the price for a totally unique ceremony, created by someone who understands your vision and you have built a proper working relationship with?
The price includes: a full 2 hour face to face consultation, all writing of the script with regular updates for you to approve, help you write your vows, help with choices of readings and music, liaison with other suppliers before and on the day of your ceremony, use of PA equipment where required, a zoom rehearsal ahead of the day, my attendance a minimum of 1 hour before the ceremony to ensure it's smooth running, officiating the ceremony on the day, a commemorative certificate and a full souvenir printed copy of the script for you to keep as a memento.
Throughout the process I am here for you - no question is a silly question.
I'm sure you will agree, this is all far more value for money than your standard civil ceremony.
