For one of my first ceremonies I was meeting with the bride and groom. During our first meeting we were discussing many things: how they met, their first date, what they loved about each other and what they would like included in the script. Whilst chatting I also asked if the bride had chosen her dress, whether the cake, flowers, cars were organised. I will never forget her answer: “the day is about our marriage to one another, not all those other ‘things’ which can end up overshadowing the fact that we have chosen to spend the rest of our lives together.” I have never forgotten that and try to remind my couples that while all those lovely details can add to your day don’t lose sight of the fact that your wedding day should be a celebration of the two of you – what’s important to you, why you are a match and how you would like to remember your special day.
I work with you to create a personalised and meaningful ceremony. It’s my job to take care of all the paperwork so that you can relax and enjoy your special day. Your wedding day should be something you can look back on as a magical day and what a privilege it is to be a part of that – love my job!
‘Karen Hamilton we would like to thank you so much for making our wedding day so amazing. Taking the time to bond and get to know us as a couple made the ceremony you created for us so personal and from the heart. Everything ran so smoothly and your professionalism throughout made us relax and enjoy the moment. We feel so lucky to have found you for our special day! And for the naming ceremony of our son! We will be highly recommending you to all our friends! Thank you again’ – Laura and Kearon
