Weddings are all about choice. You haven’t rushed deciding who you are going to marry. You have carefully chosen your guest list, your venue, your flowers…. It’s all a personal choice. So what about your ceremony? Why not choose - Someone who has taken the time to get to know you. Someone who has listened to your ideas, your wishes, your music choices. Someone who has carefully written you a ceremony that will not only be memorable for you but for all of your guests. Someone who is totally focused on you. You are their only wedding that day. Someone who has checked your music, met your sister; who is doing a reading and ensured she is ready and someone who has double checked the chairs are straight. Someone who arrived at the venue early, popped in to see both of you just to check all is well. Someone who has years of experience addressing an audience, producing and directing productions and who loves it. Someone who can lace a wedding dress, fix a bustle and attach a button hole. Choose someone who has been with you through the wedding planning highs and lows and is delighted to see you on your big day. I want to make your wedding ceremony the unforgettable start to your big day.
Anywhere - YES Anywhere! Have you found your prefect venue but you don't like the formal ceremony room? Do you want to get married outside? In a garden? On a hill? In a woodland? On a boat? At a family home? All these are possible. Get married somewhere that makes you smile and I will make sure your ceremony does the same!
In the UK celebrant led weddings aren’t legally binding (yet!) BUT - Did you know you can get married at a registry office quickly and easily and then have a Splendid Ceremony by Steph just the way you want it? In doing so you can have a celebrant wedding ceremony which is totally bespoke. I will guide you through the legal process and ensure all is correct. Remember - Marriage is the contract, the wedding is the celebration.
Ceremony and so much more
A discovery call after enquiry where we can have good initial chat. A Splendid Ceremony guide to help you start thinking about what you want from YOUR ceremony. Guidance and support on legally registering your marriage. Remember marriage is contract but the wedding is the celebration. A consultation meeting 6 /8 months before your big day where the planning can really begin. The option of help writing your vows either individually or together. Help with sourcing music, readings or any other additions. Unlimited contact and availability to ensure your ceremony script is exactly as you want. Option of a rehearsal run-though either in person or over zoom. I will meet with your readers or performers on the day to ensure they are prepared. A Steph May ceremony officiated live. A beautiful Keepsake copy of your ceremony script.
Drop me a line and we can have a free discovery call- I love a good chat preferably over a cuppa and cake. Following our call the process is booking, second discovery call, writing. Your involvement - this is different for every wedding and every couple. Of course, I want to build a ceremony that is unique and personal to you so I will need some information, but we can work around you. I want you to be able to tick ceremony off that big wedding planning list and know it’s in safe hands.
All you need is love! You bring your love and your trust and I will get creating. With my experience in performing, teaching and the wedding industry I know how to make others shine. This is your celebration and it should be joyful not just a formality.
