At the very beginning I suggest that we meet face-to-face. In my experience, meeting in person is the best way to decide if the "fit" and the chemistry between us is right.
This meeting is absolutely free and without obligation.
Then, we start building the unique ceremony which will be the heart of your wedding. Usually we will need two or three meetings to plan all of the aspects of your individually tailored ceremony.
Based on our discussions, I prepare and write your ceremony, checking-in with you during the process until we come to an agreement on the final version.
During this process you have access to all the resources I can offer, including poems and readings, samples of vows and creative ideas to enrich your ceremony.
It's a good idea to have a rehearsal if at all possible. This ensures that everyone feels relaxed on the day and familiar with all the arrangements.
In any case, on the day you I stay calm and organised and keep things undercontrol so you can relax and enjoy yourselves.
I provide you with a personal copy of the ceremony after the wedding.
The Nelson (Whakatu) Tasman region offers many wonderful wedding venues. The region's gardens, parks, mountains, beaches, rivers and mountains provide beautiful outdoor locations. The region also has many unique indoor venues too.
