What is the process?

Prior to our meeting, we will provide you with a questionnaire that we will ask you to fill in. We will require one questionnaire from each person. This gives us a great amount of background information about you, as a couple.

Upon meeting we will discuss the type of ceremony you are after. We will also discuss, your love story.

During our first meeting we will provide you with a PDF of inspiration for your Wedding Ceremony. This PDF guides you through the process of various elements which you can have in your Wedding Ceremony. When it comes to your Vows, either you can write them, or alternatively, if you choose, we can write your vows for you.

All legalities throughout the process will be clearly outlined, and simplified.
