"There is no more lovely, friendly and charming relationship, communion or

company than a good marriage."

Martin Luther


Congratulations on your decision to be joined in marriage. Getting married is a most wonderful and exciting time in our lives. It is a major decision many of us will make at some point and is a decision which should not be taken lightly.

Many people will have different views on what marriage means to them. It is not just about the legal and social validation, but more importantly it is about taking that first step in making a significant commitment to someone you love, the one person you have chosen to spend the rest of your life with. It is about being together as one, caring for one another, and sharing in all that lies ahead as a married couple, through the good times and not so good times, it is a gift of true and abiding love.


Please contact me to discuss your marriage and without any obligation I will forward you information to assist and guide you in the planning and creation of your very own marriage ceremony.

Whether you're planning a larger formal type wedding or a smaller more intimate ceremony, an elopement, or a 'registry office' style ceremony, you will find information to ensure the legal requirements for your marriage are met and ‘checklists’ to help in keeping track of this and other tasks to be undertaken/completed.

The format of a marriage ceremony is explained and you will find examples for the asking, marriage vows, traditions, rituals and readings.

An example of a full marriage ceremony is included to give you some idea of what a ceremony may look like.

You will also find information with regard to other resources you may require, including suggestions for ceremony venues, florists, and photographers in the North West area.


For more information with regard to my services and assistance I can provide in the planning of your special day please see under 'My Services' in the menu.

I wish you the very best for your up-coming marriage and

your future together.

I look forward to assisting in making your wedding day

a most happy and memorable occasion.

Now you will feel no rain, for each of you will be shelter for the other.

Now you will feel no cold, for each of you will be warmth to the other.

Now there will be no loneliness, for each of you will be companion to the other.

Now you are two persons, but there is only one life before you.

May beauty surround you both in the journey ahead and through all the years.

May happiness be your companion, and your days together

be good and long upon the earth.
