Choice Ceremonies fully inclusive service includes consultations and a pack of resources, which include a choice of different style ceremonies, vows, promises, poetry and prose, so that we can create together for you a personally written and choreographed ceremony.
There are many ways we can create this special ceremony for you. We can follow a traditional service and/or we can write a completely original ceremony especially for you.
You may wish to involve children, express your love for each other with a handfasting or write your own vows - the options are truly open to you - all we want is for you to have the ceremony that fulfils your hopes and dreams.
We also offer the option of a rehearsal and a handcrafted book. This book includes the ceremony from which the Celebrant and any readers read the service. It includes the wedding certificate ready for signing. This beautiful memento also has handmade re-cycled cotton pages on which your guests write their own wishes and blessings for you.
Every ceremony from Choice Ceremonies is a visual delight because we provide the centrepiece of a colour coordinated, beautifully dressed altar/table, candles, flowers, and ribbons.
The celebrant will be dressed according to your own choice from a wide selection of ceremonial robes. Throughout the ceremony you will not have your backs to your guests, and we do not have any restrictions on the taking of photographs and videos.
At Choice Ceremonies we believe that a happy and loving commitment should be expressed in a way in which you and your guests will never forget.
A couple may feel a Blessing ceremony more appropriate if they want their union blessed by God, they were married at another venue, or do not want to be legally married.
A Blessing is the opportunity to publicly make a commitment to one another whilst receiving the good wishes and blessings from God and/or family and friends. It does not need to be religious.
At Choice Ceremonies we have a policy of being open and inclusive. We celebrate diversity in all its colour and distinctiveness.
Our ceremonies compliment civil partnership agreements by adding a sense of the ceremonial that we in Britain are so good at doing with such chic and panache.
So let the wedding of your dreams come true as you exchange rings with the vows you have chosen in front of your guests, wherever and however you like; in an atmosphere of words and music, actions and setting, which are meaningful, unique and everlastingly memorable.
"Thank you for the wonderful service you conducted for D. You were an immediate success at point of arrival at our house and the trip down memory lane you prompted so easily was good therapy for all the family."
"Friends present at the service believed you must have known D for quite a few years. We cannot thank you enough. You made D's funeral as enjoyable as was humanly possible, and I believe that because of you, our grandchildren's memories of the occasion will be pleasant ones."
"Thank you so much for everything..."
"you made it very special..."
"it was even nicer than we had imagined it would be and we were so impressed with the thought that had gone into every little detail, from your robes, the beautiful table dressing, the wonderful keepsake book, the way you had with R, the wording and delivery of the service, right down to the blowing of bubbles..."
"We feel utterly privileged to have had you to conduct Chloe's christening day with the style and personality that you created. All our guests, without exception, commented on how wonderful the ceremony was, enabling us to carry on the tradition of a baptism with the wording and character of our lives today.
The table was exquisite showing us a deeper level of preparation than we had first thought and the skilful way you 'managed' Chloe and commanded her attention was highly impressive!"
