One of life’s biggest and most joyful milestones
Civil or a religious wedding ceremony are not the only options and what better way to personalise your special day with a ceremony that’s truly unique to you and your partner. Hiring a celebrant is a fantastic way to put your own stamp on the wedding ceremony.
Hello, my name is Gem Watson, and I have been a professional Marriage and Family Celebrant and Member of the Fellowship of Professional Celebrants since 2020.
It is real joy to be a part of your special occasion as Weddings are probably one of life’s biggest and most joyful milestones. You’re marrying your best friend – your story is totally unique. Using your ideas and my experience, we will create a wonderful day full of all the special moments that you and your guests will treasure.
I can include religious/spiritual and other rituals in the ceremonies, making them truly meaningful, romantic, elegant and yet relaxing so you fully enjoy your wonderful day.
I WILL CONDUCT THE WEDDING CEREMONY
I will meet up with you to find out more about you and your preferences and then write your ceremony. Then, if I am available, I will perform your ceremony.
I WILL CONDUCT THE VOW RENEWAL
First, we all meet up, either in person or on the phone and talk about what you are looking for. Then I will write the ceremony based on your feedback and perform your ceremony.
Advice on Writing
If you are looking to write your own ceremony, but just need some pointers or guidance we can arrange a skype call or meet up and I will look over your draft script.
I am available to conduct weddings, civil partnerships and renewal of vows. We can plan on how you can celebrate your love in a ceremony that is bespoke to you.
Ceremonies and rituals can include lighting of candles, sand ceremonies, handsfasting, music and readings. As a parent I am at ease at including children into your family union and making them as much part of the services as you would like. Older children may feel comfortable enough to give a reading, younger children may just be happy to join in a sand ceremony showing the blending of families, or you and your partner may even have a beloved pet that will even join in your special day!
