Frequently asked questions
What’s the difference between a celebrant and a registrar?
Whilst a Registrar is authorised to carry out marriage services that are legally binding, they have to follow the legal format by which they are bound. They are unable to be as flexible as a Celebrant because they have to abide by set times and locations etc. A Celebrant on the other hand can be totally flexible in style, content, location and times. They will spend time to get to know you and create a ceremony which suits your requirements and personality.
What’s the difference between a celebrant ceremony and humanist ceremony?
Humanists do not have any religious beliefs and so would not include any aspect of religion into a ceremony. A Celebrant will be more comfortable including some religious elements into a ceremony should this be the wish of the clients.
Will you write the service for me?
A Celebrant can absolutely write the service for you! This is what they specialise in. They will have lots of ideas for wording, vows, poems, readings, music - but ultimately the service will be written around the client's wishes and the Celebrant will not dictate to the clients. They will ensure that you're happy with the 'script' and the plan and that you have the wedding of your dreams!
Can we write our own ceremony or vows?
Yes of course, this is a wonderful way of personalising the ceremony and you are free to make the vows that you wish to make. If you require any help your Celebrant will assist you with ideas for wording.
Do you cater for LGBTQ+ weddings?
Absolutely! I believe that Love is Love. In support of this belief, Special Day Ceremonies Ltd is an official sponsor of Derby Pride 2019. Come and visit my stall on Saturday 7th September 2019 on Curzon Street, Derby. I can't wait to meet you!
Do you cater for multi-faith weddings?
I can certainly discuss your requirements with you and I'm sure that I can propose a service which will appeal to you all.
Do you need to meet us before the wedding day?
Yes this is a really important point. Your celebrant will want to get to know you in order to tailor your ceremony around your personalities and styles. I would want to find out a little about your main wedding party too, in order to deliver a personal touch to the proceedings. It's also nice if I can get some information from your main wedding party about their first impressions of your 'spouse to be' and any funny stories which can be woven into the service should you wish.
What do your prices start at?
There are three packages to choose from and prices start from £495 for the Silver with the Gold package at £625 and the Platinum at £825. Please visit my website for details of what these packages include! www.special-day-ceremonies.co.uk
How far in advance should I book you?
This can vary but please get in touch as soon as you wish to meet me and we can go from there!
About Special Day Ceremonies Ltd
I am a friendly 'non dowdy'(!) Independent Celebrant for weddings, vow renewals and baby naming ceremonies. I can work in any style; traditional, modern, theatrical, I am flexible! Completely bespoke for you - Your Day - Your Way!
I am a firm believer that Love is Love. As an Independent Wedding Celebrant in England, I am able to actively help all couples to exert their rights to get married without restriction by creating and delivering the beautiful wedding ceremony of their dreams. Special Day Ceremonies Ltd is an official sponsor of Derby Pride.
To give you a flavour of the next steps, here's the typical process for your unique ceremony:
Initial meeting (free) to discuss your thoughts and ideas and for you to decide if I'm the right celebrant for you - it's of paramount importance that you choose someone that you're 100% comfortable with.
If you choose me - we'd then discuss further details - what style of ceremony you'd like, how you guys met, how the story progressed and how you arrived at this point. We'll also discuss (amongst other things) who's who in your wedding party, and what music / readings you'd like to use - if you're not sure don't worry because I have ideas to help you decide.
I can then start to create your bespoke ceremony script and you'll receive draft copies of this until you're totally delighted with the final 'plan'.
A few days before the wedding we'll have a rehearsal with the main wedding party in attendance so that you all feel comfortable and know what to expect.
On the wedding day I will be a calming presence and will guide you and your guests through a unique ceremony to remember!
Your Day - Your Way!
