Commitment Ceremonies are very similar to marriage ceremonies without the legal elements and are often chosen by people for whom marriage is not desired or a couple where at least one is not free to marry but they are still in a legal relationship.
Commitment ceremonies, whilst not legally binding, are nevertheless still a profoundly moving experience for the couple involved as well as for their guests. It is no small thing to publicly declare your love for another as you commit to spending all of your lives together as a couple.
Couples choosing a Commitment Ceremony receive the same high level of professional service and personalised care as those wishing for a Marriage Ceremony. As there is no legal element to this ceremony my fee is reduced.
If you are considering this option, please look through the information given for weddings.
It was a delight to perform a legal marriage ceremony for Kerrie and Emily in January of 2018.
I perform Commitment Ceremonies in parks and gardens, at reception centres, restaurants and art galleries, at one of our wonderful B&Bs or resorts, in family homes or holiday houses – each one being special in its own right.
I believe that your ceremony should be unique to you as a couple and so I will take the time to get to know you and something of your personal journey – how you came to be at this point when you know that your lives must continue together. This story is then woven into your ceremony in a way that suits your desires and reflects your chosen style for the day.
A Commemorative Certificate is presented to the couple as a part of the ceremony.
