The process

We meet for an initial mutual interview of about half an hour to an hour (no charge). This is very relaxed, I listen to what you would like, and if you are not sure, then I offer ideas.. Most importantly is that you are comfortable with me. It can be such a challenge to ask a relative stranger to be part of such a special moment with you. I can guarantee that by your wedding day.. we certainly will not be strangers !





Once confirmed, we get together again to compile the actual ceremony. I have many ideas and resources, and a simple structure to guide you so we create together the wedding that is personal for you both. A week after our compiling session, you receive your ceremony by e mail. This then gives you the opportunity to have some time on your own to reflect on the ceremony, and make the relevant changes. We stay in touch by phone or e mail.


The rehearsal is usually a couple of days before your wedding day (depending on Venue availability). Unless you are marrying in an intimate garden, home or beach setting, I really encourage a rehearsal as this gets all the technicalities out of the way, allowing the wedding day to be the focus of your romance.


We ensure that the pieces of music you have chosen are the correct length. so you will not run out halfway through your entrance!

Other considerations:
Where you wish to stand… where the sun will be. Check out the wet weather cover.







The Wedding Day: I arrive at least 30 minutes before the guest invite.., and remain after the ceremony until your initial photos have been completed.
