There are lots of couples nowadays choosing a destination wedding or even a beach ceremony but it can be quite confusing, even frustrating and stressful to organise and find out what to do once you get there! The main problem is that every country has its own laws & regulations surrounding a licensed marriage.

There’ll undoubtedly be lots of paperwork before the wedding, a need to reside in that country for a specified number of days before the ceremony, and then, some countries even require you to carry legal documentation or visit their embassy before the big day. Do you really want the stress or to take the risk?

My alternative

Why not Register your marriage in your resident country before you visit, and then you could use me as your Wedding Celebrant to officiate a unique, personalised wedding ceremony at your chosen destination.

I’m happy to act as an English Speaking Destination Wedding Celebrant for UK and Western couples getting married abroad, or for International couples travelling to the UK for their wedding day.

All you will need to do is register your marriage in the UK or your country of residence before or after your holiday, and then I come along to officiate at your personalised wedding ceremony in your chosen destination.

To give you an idea, my Destination Wedding Ceremony Service tends to include …

  • Meeting with you a few months before the wedding, to go through your ideas and then we create the perfect wedding ceremony just for you. This will either take place in the UK or over Skype if you are living abroad.
  • As much contact and guidance throughout the ceremony writing process as you need.
  • Guidance with writing your vows, or you can have the freedom to write your own if you wish?
  • I can help with choosing appropriate poems and readings for your ceremony.
  • Why not include a symbolic ceremony, such as a Hand Fasting, Sand Ceremony or Unity Candles… or anything else which is more personal to you? I have a lot of ideas for symbolic ceremonies!
  • I will then go and create a bespoke ceremony script, written just for you.
  • I will plan to be at your chosen destination at least one day before the wedding to meet you in person and hold a rehearsal if required. Then, on the day, I will be at your venue at least an hour before the ceremony is due to begin, and, if you wish, I will stay to toast you as a newly married couple!
  • Your wedding ceremony will be delivered in English but, If you wish to say your vows or include readings in another language, feel free to do so.
  • I will provide you with a  copy of your full wedding ceremony script as a ‘keepsake’ and if you’d like one, a ‘Ceremony Certificate’
  • You have the option to add my Toastmaster or Master of Ceremonies Service to your day to help things flow and be stress-free.

I am based in the beautiful county of Somerset in the UK but, I have a full valid UK Passport and I’m happy to travel to any part of the UK, Europe or Worldwide to deliver a unique, personalised ceremony on your wedding day.

My Fees for my destination wedding ceremony service are dependent on location, so please do get in touch soon to discuss how we can work together to make your wedding ‘Amazing’!
