What kind of wedding would you like?
During our first no obligation free meeting, we will talk about the traditions you love, and those you want to avoid. What you value and what you don’t. What ideas you have and where you’d love suggestions. We’ll decide on the ideas most meaningful for you and your partner.
Without the ceremony, a wedding would just be a great party with people in great clothes. The most important part of a wedding is WHY you are there and WHY you’re together. A ceremony inspires, confirms, unites, and explains why you fell in love in the first place. It demonstrates commitment and is an opportunity to declare your love to each other in front of family and friends.
One of the most challenging (but also the most rewarding) is to craft a ceremony which incorporates multiple elements. What if one of you is Catholic, and the other agnostic? One Jewish, and other Humanist? What if one of you likes traditional formal, and the other wants something unique?
As a licensed wedding officiant, contemporary ordained interfaith minister, and professional ceremony designer, I can combine the “uncombinable,” transform the unspoken or hard-to-explain into a ceremony which expresses who you are as a couple. Whether on the ground or in the air, traditional or non-traditional, formal or casual, romantic or filled with humour and audience interaction, let’s design a ceremony that reflects who you are and shows the world your “why.”
“I’m all about avoiding wedding clichés and on the look-out for “tradition with a twist.”Lise Leroux
Of course! Bespoke wedding and civil partnership ceremonies can be designed for any couple of any sexual preference or gender orientation. Life-Cycle Celebrants support and promote inclusion, tolerance, diversity, and recognition of human rights and individual freedom.
You don’t marry one person; you marry three: the person you think they are, the person they are, and the person they are going to become as a result of being married to you.Richard Needham
You never know what you’re getting into when you fall in love, but that doesn’t mean you avoid the jump.Crystal Cestari, The Best Kind of Magic
