You wedding package has to be perfect for you both. This can take some forward planning maybe making notes, having discussions and putting your thinking caps on to create the day that is right for you. Some couples just fly by the seat of their pants and still have the perfect day, some plan every detail. We are all totally unique and what works for one does not have to work for another!
Some couples may prefer small intimate affairs while others have a big family get together. Maybe a few want a destination wedding or one a ceremony at the edge of a Loch – ideas are created and dreams flow of what their perfect day involves.
Couples build on ideas of what they are looking for to bring their day together & which ties in with their budget. Venues are chosen and ticked off the list and then plans are set in motion.
The wedding dress is an important part for many brides. They then go on to choosing their bridesmaids dresses, who the flowers girls are if any. They then decide on the theme maybe and colour scheme, all adding the finishing touches to make their day special.
A photographer is often recommended or chosen with care and attention. Their cake and its design is decided on, the wedding breakfast menu and drinks list. Wedding rings are picked and all the decorations and extra’s which are added to the day.
The perfect Fit
Choosing the right person to hold your ceremony and to add to your day is just as important as all these other requirements. After all, you want your vows and story to be one you can look back on and remember with smiles and happiness.
There are a multitude of ways people wish to celebrate and enjoy their day and giving you both your special touch and package, perfect for you is where my role comes in.
As a Celebrant & Deaconess I will sit with you both at our first meeting and we can get to know each other. You can let me know your plans, how you met and what your wishes are. This helps me build your story which then creates the perfect script for you both.
This first meeting will also give you a chance to see if you find I am the person who can make your day that bit more special. Do I make you feel comfortable; do you feel you trust me to hold your ceremony? Did you leave feeling we got on well? These thoughts are important. Feeling comfortable with your Celebrant helps make your day so much easier.
Never accept a Celebrant unless you feel totally comfortable with them.
Who I Am!
I am told I smile a lot, have good sense of humour, can be very sensible when required and have been known to love seeing people happy! It brings the biggest smile to my face!
Reviews from weddings can be found on the website, on the Celebrant Directory and on the Facebook Page Eternal Soul Light. Having a look may help you make a choice.
What I can Bring!
I am fully insured, a member of the Fellowship of Professional Celebrants who I trained with, and I am an Ordained Deaconess with the Holy Celtic Church International. My background of hospitality and facilitating workshops, courses and training all add to the mix of experience in my role.
As a Deaconess I can perform your full wedding ceremony including signing your marriage schedule. All in a way that is right for you both as a couple, should this be non- religious, spiritual or non-spiritual, religious or otherwise. We live in a diverse world where we can all embrace and value each other in our ways.
I am there to help you build on your theme and story. Your Uniqueness.
