Bridget Garrett Ceremonies
Hello, my name is Bridget and I’ve got a question to ask you.
How many weddings have you been to where the only thing that is different to the last one you went to is the smiling, happy faces of the couple at the front?
No couples are the same, your path to love is unique and why would you want your ceremony to sound like everyone else’s?
Ask most people what the focal point of a wedding ceremony is and they’ll say it’s the joining together of two people in love. It’s an opportunity to get all the family and loved ones together to celebrate that love and witness the declaration of the vows the couple make to one another for the years ahead.
The focus has very little to do with the ‘legal registration’ of that marriage. That’s just a hoop to jump through in the process, which can be done in less than 15 minutes at the Registry Office, no vows, no rings, no fuss.
A Celebrant led wedding celebration ceremony will put the focus firmly on you, the couple, at the centre of the day.
The words you use during your ceremony and the promises you make to each other - the vows - have stayed entrenched in the language of the past, give or take a reading or two. But at the end of the day, isn’t it the vows and the words of the ceremony that is the beating heart of a wedding?
To create a truly personalised ceremony where you can be as creative as you like with your venue, your wording, your vows, your content and format, using a Celebrant like me is the way to go. If you want to remain more traditional, that’s fine too, you can pick and choose what elements you want in your ceremony, be they religious or not, you can make it your own. I can just help you to make it more personal to you!
I am a fully qualified and accredited Civil Celebrant for lots of different types of ceremony but I really do love weddings.
If you want the ‘Whole Wedding Works’ I will work with you from the very beginning.
- I’ll get to know you and help you to put together your vows and ceremony, including members of your family, all kinds of music or readings, poems or symbolic gestures - whatever you want. You can be really creative with your ceremony
- I’ll liaise with you over the following months and be a real part of your wedding team, working with other professionals you may have hired
- I’ll rehearse with you before the big day
- Your wedding will be the only one I deliver on any given day
- You will get a bound presentation copy of your ceremony to keep
If you just want advice and some input into your ceremony or vows and get someone else to deliver your ceremony on the day, that’s fine too. My input can be as much or as little as you want and it will be priced accordingly.
Ceremonies for key life events really matter, so make sure your wedding ceremony is as memorable and as personal as you can make it.
