Celebrate your wedding when, where and how you like!

This is the perfect option for you when celebrating your special day. If you are looking for something unique, special and different I can help you.

Maybe you have in mind a vintage ceremony, or a rustic event on a farm. Whatever your vision, I will work with you to create the ceremony of your dreams.

A wedding celebration enables you to share your love and new status with your friends and family. You can include traditional, religious and cultural elements in your ceremony. Couples often like to write their own vows and promises to each other and exchange rings and gifts. You may also choose to represent your love with candles, or even wine. Include what feels right for you to ensure that your ceremony is a true reflection of yourselves and your stories.

Have your day your way

  • Your content
  • Your music
  • Your own vows or promises
  • Your personal details woven into your ceremony
  • Your traditional ceremony or something more creative
  • Your symbolic content such as lighting a unity candle
  • Your guests could read a special poem or reading from your favourite book

I would be truly honoured to write a bespoke ceremony that would be completely unique and personal to both of you. If you have special words you would like to say to each other in your vows you can write your own (with or without my help).

Do you have a specific theme to your wedding? Why not incorporate some wording to tie in with the theme and choose readings to compliment it too?

My job is to listen to your ideas, likes and dislikes and come up with something you will love. We can spend time discussing options and ideas, and how to include these in your ceremony. Don't worry if you're short of ideas, as I have access to many poems and readings for you to peruse.

Regular communication

This is one of the most important days of your lives, and as such, I want you to be happy with the content of your ceremony. Regular communication can help calm any worries, so I invite you to make contact when need be, and I will also contact you with drafts and ideas when required. For some ceremonies it is useful for me to be in contact with other professionals who are to be involved on the big day. This helps us work together seamlessly to provide the day of your dreams.

Supporting Adults or Godparents

One of the most popular reasons for holding a Naming Ceremony is for parents to choose Supporting Adults, or Godparents. You may wish to ask significant people in your life to support and guide your child as he or she grows older. Their promises can be included in the Ceremony.

Many Congratulations!

 
 
 

On the day

An early arrival enables me to check and organise the venue. I will bring any readings, poems and extras agreed upon. I shall liaise with other professionals involved, as well as with guests who may be taking part in the ceremony. I will offer nervous readers reassurance and encouragement as and when required!

Once it is time to begin, I will conduct your ceremony, leading you and your guests smoothly through the process. You have the option of signing a ceremonial certificate, which you can then keep. This is usually a popular inclusion to the ceremony, as well as a perfect photo opportunity for your guests!

An Ian Cartwright Wedding Celebration Ceremony package includes:

  • An initial conversation so you can assess if I’m the right celebrant for you. During this initial conversation, I will provide an indication of the costs of your ceremony.
  • A conversation so I can listen to you and understand what you want. We can discuss content, readings, promises, and any symbolic content, and whether you want these to be spiritual in any way.
  • We can also discuss how you may wish to include others within the ceremony.
  • If possible we could meet at the venue you have chosen for your ceremony.
  • A first draft of your ceremony that we share, giving you the opportunity to request any changes.
  • A final ceremony script.
  • If possible a rehearsal at your venue.
  • Your ceremony being conducted at the venue of your choice.
  • A souvenir script as a reminder of your ceremony.
  • A commemorative certificate as a lasting reminder.

Cost

The cost of your ceremony will represent very good value for your money. I operate a flexible pricing policy, tailored to my customers requirements so they can make an informed choice on the type of ceremony they require.

 
 

IMPORTANT - A civil celebrant does not perform a legal marriage. A marriage certificate must be obtained from the local registrar prior to the celebration ceremony. Usually a main register office will perform a 'couples and witness only' marriage.
