A Humanist wedding ceremony gives you the opportunity to have the style of ceremony that you want in your chosen location. Whether indoors or outdoors, formal or informal, every Humanist wedding is a unique event carefully crafted just for you on your special day. I have conducted weddings across Devon, Dorset and Hampshire – (I conducted one in Gloucestershire from inside a rally car!). UK Pride is being held on the Isle of Wight on Saturday 21st July. As a national event, it is expected to draw a crowd of 30,000+ people for the parade, stalls, and a huge beach

If you would like to get married at UK Pride being held on the Isle of Wight on Saturday 21st July get in touch with me soon!

How does it work? 

First we meet and discuss your wedding ceremony, the things you want and the things you don’t!  Together we will design a ceremony that is right for you. We can include symbolic actions and rituals that you would like, (e.g. hand fasting, ring warming, sand/spice blending) as well as readings, poetry, the involvement of family and friends and, of course, the wedding vows. I will then prepare the ceremony and email the draft to you for your thoughts and any changes. Once you are happy you confirmed that to me. I am happy to attend a rehearsal this helps everyone to know where they need to be and when. On the day itself I arrive in plenty of time to set up, prepare and then conduct the ceremony.

What does it include?

  • An initial visit to discuss the ceremony (your ideas, rituals, vows, readings etc.),
  • The Preparation of the ceremony script (with edits as required),
  • The rehearsal (prior to the day),
  • Conducting of the Wedding Ceremony,
  • A symbolic certificate,
  • A presentation copy of the Wedding Ceremony (a pdf will also be available).
