Your ceremony will be unique and tailored to your personalities and ideals. The legal aspects of the event are actually very minimal leaving space for as much originality or tradition as you desire. I write every ceremony from scratch so it is 100% ALL ABOUT YOU.
To see these legal requirements visit the Department of Internal Affairs website.
The next step is a meeting with myself so we can discuss what you are wanting from your special day. My mantra is Your Day Your Way. From the most relaxed style to the most formal, it is entirely your call. I will then formulate a ceremony completely unique to your wishes. Yes I can dress up, but equally, I can deliver a much more traditional approach. I can even try to coordinate with your colour themes! But not in orange sadly, I own no orange, though I promise not to clash.
I am also more than happy to attend a rehearsal, and should you need me to I can coordinate this rehearsal and any aspects of the ceremony you wish.
Examples of previous ceremonies include telling the stories of how you met each other and also how one of you proposed. Also any quirky fun stories from your life you want to share with all your gathered loved ones and emails from friends and family that I coordinate and read as a surprise for you should you wish.
Elements usually include a welcome, statement of what the event means to the couple, relationship stories, poetry and readings (ideas here) from family and friends, Vows, the exchange of rings with associated affirmations, perhaps songs sung or recorded and the all important kiss.

I should also say that though my comedy is many and varied and often R18, I am very capable of being family friendly for a special day for all.
