Weddings and Partnerships
Congratulations on your wedding or partnership!
Each wedding and partnership celebration, like you, is unique. No two ceremonies are the same. Maybe you would like a ceremony that is traditional and straightforward. Or maybe you would like a celebration that reflects your unique characters and outlook. Whatever you have in mind, I am here to help you create the ceremony that is right for you.
Why choose me?
- Experience. I have been a celebrant for over 100 ceremonies of all shapes and sizes including baby blessings, weddings and funerals. From the small to the large, indoors, outdoors, profound and light-hearted
- Compassion. My intention is always to be open-hearted and open-minded; to meet you where you are at on your journey
- Flexibility. I have no ‘dogma’ of what should be included. Your ceremony could be a totally non-religious/humanist ceremony or one that is totally religious/spiritual or anywhere in between. What is more important is your outlook, beliefs and ideas
- I am very organised and responsive
- I enjoy what I do!
We can adapt the process based on your needs. We normally start with a no obligation meeting where you can see whether I am the right celebrant for you. We then move on to a main meeting where I understand more about you and what you want in the ceremony. From this, I write up a draft of the whole ceremony and you are free to make any changes you want so that the final script is as you wish. We have a rehearsal just before the wedding and then it’s the wedding itself. It will be a day to remember.
Normally, I cover anywhere up to about 20 miles from Stratford, East London but occasionally I can travel further. The cost for a standard wedding is £400 plus travel expenses but this is dependent on the type of ceremony – please contact me for more details.
Thank you for everything you have done and the excellent job you did on the day. We were so very honoured to have you as our celebrant and loved the wonderful things you said about us. ~ Janaki and Tom
Ian really put as at ease before our wedding day and had everything in hand on the day. He was very open-minded and flexible with all our requests and helped shape it into a meaningful ceremony that we will never forget! ~ Susanne and Ian
Thank you so much once again for officiating at our wedding. The ceremony was heartfelt and touched many of our guests. Both Simon and I feel that our heads are filled with beautiful images of the wedding, all the wonderful things people said about us and how they experienced the day. So a big thank you! ~ Sarah and Simon
Thank you so so much for conducting what was a beautiful ceremony – so many people have said how much they enjoyed it and how thoughtful they thought your words were. It really was the best day of my life and I am so happy you were a part of it; the time, effort and compassion you put into the ceremony was incredible and I will never forget it. ~ Blanche and Jolyon
