Choice Ceremonies fully inclusive service includes consultations and a pack of resources, which include a choice of different style ceremonies, vows, promises, poetry and prose, so that we can create together for you a personally written and choreographed ceremony.
There are many ways we can create this special ceremony for you. We can follow a traditional service and/or we can write a completely original ceremony especially for you.
You may wish to involve children, express your love for each other with a handfasting or write your own vows - the options are truly open to you - all we want is for you to have the ceremony that fulfils your hopes and dreams.
We also offer the option of a rehearsal and a handcrafted book. This book includes the ceremony from which the Celebrant and any readers read the service. It includes the wedding certificate ready for signing. This beautiful memento also has handmade re-cycled cotton pages on which your guests write their own wishes and blessings for you.
Every ceremony from Choice Ceremonies is a visual delight because we provide the centrepiece of a colour coordinated, beautifully dressed altar/table, candles, flowers, and ribbons.
The celebrant will be dressed according to your own choice from a wide selection of ceremonial robes. Throughout the ceremony you will not have your backs to your guests, and we do not have any restrictions on the taking of photographs and videos.
At Choice Ceremonies we believe that a happy and loving commitment should be expressed in a way in which you and your guests will never forget.
You may choose to include

as traditional or as unconventional as
you choose. We want to be absolutely sure
that we fulfil your dreams for the perfect

Let me clarify, as in Europe, the certificates signed at all our wedding ceremonies are not marriage licenses. This is because our civil marriage laws are restrictive around the wording and content of the ceremony.
(Registered / Non-registered)
Hotel, Pub, Club
In the forest,
air or field
On the beach, water or cliff
All you need to do to gain a marriage license is attend your local registry office with two witnesses [who can be strangers].
I suggest you do not exchange rings before the registrar but leave that to do at your wedding ceremony with Choice Ceremonies. We do not require you to have a license before your ceremony.
At Choice Ceremonies we do not discriminate in any way or have any unnecessary restrictions, you may have your ceremony at any time and on any day of the year.
So let the wedding of your dreams come true as you exchange rings with the vows you have chosen in front of your guests, wherever, and however you like; in an atmosphere of words and music, actions and setting, which are meaningful, unique and memorable to you.
Extracts taken from previous weddings and blessings can be viewed here.
Why have a Professionally
Trained Celebrant to write and conduct
Because of our extensive
experience we can recommend and guide you
in your choice of wording and choreography.
With a policy of non-discrimination we
cater for the requirements of everyone.
Ceremonies may be themed, religious or
not, and can include mixed faiths, cultures,
creeds and denominations.
We provide the extras that mean all our
ceremonies have a spirituality all of
their own created by the beautifully
visual and romantic ambience. We robe
in fine garments to compliment your day.
We spend time getting to know you so
your ceremony is personal, warm and friendly.
We are able to offer ongoing support.
Many clients keep in touch and it is
a joy to celebrate other family events
such as renewal of vows, baby Namings and Christenings.
You may ask how
does a Blessing differ from a Wedding?
Celebrate in style
with a unique Commitment Ceremony:
A couple may feel a Blessing ceremony
more appropriate if they want their union
blessed by God, they were married at
another venue, or do not want to be legally
married. A Blessing is the opportunity
to publicly make a commitment to one
another whilst receiving the good wishes
and blessings from God and/or family
and friends. It does not need to be religious.
At Choice Ceremonies we have a policy
of being open and inclusive. We celebrate
diversity in all its colour and distinctiveness.
Our ceremonies compliment civil partnership
agreements by adding a sense of the ceremonial
that we in Britain are so good at doing
with such chic and panache.
So let the wedding of your
dreams come true as you exchange rings
with the vows you have chosen in front
of your guests, wherever and however
you like; in an atmosphere of words and
music, actions and setting, which are
meaningful, unique and everlastingly
As in other parts
of the world, the certificate signed
at the wedding ceremony conducted by
Choice Ceremonies is not a marriage
license. This is because the legislation
surrounding a civil wedding limits
your choice of venue and the content
of your ceremony, (such as not allowing
anything ritual in nature; i.e; the
lighting of candles and most classical

To register your marriage you can choose
to have the Registrar and Clerk attend
a registered venue either before or after
we conduct your ceremony. Or you may
chose to register your marriage at the
registrar office in your ordinary clothes
You do not need to exchange rings before
a registrar and the two required witnesses
could be strangers.
To accompany your unique wedding is our
beautiful exclusive Handcrafted book.
The celebrant conducts the ceremony from
the book, which also contains the certificate
ready for signing.
The remainder of the book contains handmade
recycled cotton paper pages on which
your guests write their wishing and blessings.
The handmade paper is used to cover the
book and you choose the design and the
colour of the cord to accompany your
names or initials.
This book will become a treasured family
heirloom to pass down from generation
