Formerly a Deputy Superintendent Registrar of Marriages for twelve years, and a Celebrant for seven years, Josie brings a wealth of experience to this service she is providing.
"A great advantage of being an independent celebrant is being able to offer a much more personal service.Its lovely to meet my couples beforehand to discuss exactly how they would like their ceremony to be, its their special day and as such the ceremony should be a reflection of them, I can then offer suggestions on readings, vows and any other aspect of their ceremony, which can include Religious readings, hand tie, candle ceremony, Scottish quaike, or any other tradition. If distance is a problem I can even arrange to have a 'skype chat' - there's always a way!"
Following simple legal formalities* your ceremony can take place in any venue regardless of whether it is currently licensed for weddings; also offering times outside of those normally available. With this comes a wider choice of having a garden ceremony at home, or in an exclusive Country House or Castle - some of which are not in Local Authority directories. A favourite Restaurant or Country Pub are also options for a less formal ceremony, or at any other place which may be meaningful.
With her relaxed approach and very natural warm and friendly manner, you can be confident that you will have a very special wedding ceremony to remember.
