Why Choose A Civil Wedding?

Find out key details…


However you want your big day…

A full religious wedding may not be your cup of tea; nor may a Register Office wedding, which is strictly non-religious. You may well want religious elements, but be marrying someone of a different religion to you – or your own church won’t accept your marriage for whatever reason.


Hurrah! There is a ‘middle ground’, which is where I come in. I can help you create a tailor-made ceremony, offering you ideas and guidance, as you choose the elements that you feel will meet your needs, personalities and personal beliefs. Then I conduct your service in an appropriate, professional way.

Why not go (with two witnesses) and get legally married (hours or days) before our ceremony, leaving you free to really relax and enjoy the occasion? Or you can even combine the two ceremonies, with the registrars marrying you in front of your guests and the civil ceremony following straight on!


In addition to freedom to celebrate the way you wish, you are free to choose your venue and time. Why not have the ceremony of your dreams exactly as you want it?
