A simplicity ceremony (sometimes known as an elopement) is a smaller or shorter marriage celebration that focuses on you and your relationship.
No less special at all, in fact a much more intimate way to celebrate your love and commitment to each other. They can also be a less daunting experience if you are feeling the nerves or plan to keep wording to a minimum.
This ceremony is perfect if you are wanting to keep the ceremony short & sweet however a little more than just a legals only & for up to 20 people attending.
Its so important to choose a celebrant you have a connection with, feel relaxed and at ease with. After all it is one of the biggest days of your life! Lets chat and see if we have a match!
We will then arrange our initial meeting where we will talk and learn about your love story, complete the Notice of Intention to Marry , NOIM, answer all your questions and start talking plans, giving you lots of things to go away and think about! I do like to allow 1.5hours for this meeting so there is no rushing.
Please note The Notice of intention to marry, NOIM, requires one month before your ceremony, unless a shortening of time is granted.
I will then create the first draft of your personalised ceremony and we can review/alter until its perfect.
We can arrange a rehearsal before the day if you would like to , this doesn't need to take place at your venue. Alternatively I will guide you through every step of the ceremony on the big day itself.
On the big day I will check in with you in the morning, then be at the venue in plenty of time to set up and be ready to welcome you and your guests before we start, easing any nerves as needed.
I will check you have the rings, are in position, any buttonholes/corsages/flowers are in place, all ties, flies and jackets straight and dresses neat before we start!
Then we will get you married!
