Frequently Asked Questions

What are your fees?

Wedding ceremonies are generally £450 for weekdays and £550 for weekends in 2021, but please get in touch for a bespoke quote!

Will our wedding be legal?

You will have to do the legal bit separately with a Registrar, which generally costs around £50. Think of it as getting the 'paperwork' out of the way - you don't even have to exchange rings; you can save that for your celebrant ceremony if you wish! You can do the 'legal bit' at any time before or after your main celebration. A bill has recently been introduced into Parliament to give Humanist weddings the same legal recognition in England and Wales as they already have in Scotland and Northern Ireland. You can find out more about this here.

Where are you based and where do you cover?

I live in Derby which makes it really easy to travel to most of the Midlands and into Yorkshire. If you're further afield, though, get in touch and I am sure we can work something out.

How do I book?

First, get in touch via my contact form or slide into my DMs on social media. From there we can arrange a chat either face to face, online, or via phone (whatever works best for you). If you decide we are a good fit and you'd like me to write and deliver your ceremony, a deposit will secure your date with the full balance being due 28 days prior to the big day. 

We have no idea what we want to include in our ceremony. Can you help us?!

That's what I'm here for! I can have as much or as little contribution to the content of the ceremony as you would like. If you already have a really clear vision of what you would like to say and include, then I can just offer tweaks and help with the overall structure. If you are totally clueless and already feel overwhelmed at the thought of deciding what to include (or not include!) in your ceremony then I will offer guidance and suggestions until we have come up with something truly special which reflects you as a couple or family.
