A commitment ceremony is not legally binding like a marriage, but is a way of publicly affirming your love and dedication to each other as a couple.
You may want to express and celebrate your commitment to each other with all the formality and solemnity of a marriage ceremony.
Or, you may prefer a more informal, but equally meaningful, expression of your love before close friends and family.
Please note, as from July 24th 2011 I have the honor and pleasure to officiate at same sex marriages. If you would like my services for a wedding please look at my “wedding section”.
Am I the right celebrant for you? You can read a bit more about me here, and also please have a look at my photo gallery to get a feel for the warmth and professionalism I bring to the ceremonies I perform.
At our first consultation, I will start with the “big picture” you have in mind for your commitment ceremony and then move into details. Then over the next few weeks or months, I will liaise with you until you feel the ceremony has the words, music and symbols that truly express the love and commitment you feel for each other. About a week before the commitment ceremony, we will have a rehearsal. And finally, there’s the “big day” with a ceremony that all will remember and enjoy!
I would love to work with you to develop a personalized and meaningful commitment ceremony. Afterwards if you desire, I will present you with a special “Commitment Certificate” keepsake.
