Many couples are looking to get married in a more non-traditional manner. Whether engaged couples are getting married at resorts, hotels, backyards or in the outdoors, they are in search of a more personal ceremony which reflects their unique relationship as well as their shared beliefs and values. The couple may have different religious or cultural backgrounds yet share a common spirituality. Because of this, the demand for independent, non-denominational wedding officiants is growing.
I became a marriage officiant to positively affect other people’s lives. I offer my time, experience, energy and passion to make your wedding-day magical, personal and memorable.
If you need guidance, I have sample ceremonies for you to choose from. I can also help you with your vows. You can choose readings and music to enhance the day.
To personalize the ceremony, I will send you a questionnaire beforehand and then write a story about the life of your relationship.
Many couples have chosen to include a unique Celtic tradition called a Handfasting. You write promises you wish to state to each other (or, I can suggest a script) and I will ask you to say them during the ceremony. Using a braided cord, which I provide, I gently wrap your joined hands together after each promise.
