The Christmas and New Year period is a popular time for couples to decide they are going to get make their partnership more formal, with a public declaration of love and commitment. Perhaps you or your partner proposed or maybe you simply enjoyed spending some time together and decided it is time to make a commitment to each other.
No matter how small or simple you decide you want your special day to be, there are a whole range of things to think about;
Do you want your partnership to be legally recognised or is the act of declaring your love and commitment the most important element for you?
Where will the event take place and what kind of ceremony will you have?
One of the advantages of choosing a civil celebrant to conduct your ceremony is it offers you complete freedom to have exactly what you want, where you want : your ceremony, your way. Perhaps there is a place (indoor or outside) that has special meaning for you as a couple. Or maybe you want a handfasting in a natural environment, such as woodland, or at a place that has mystic or ancient significance. Civil celebrants can be flexible about time too. What about a ceremony as the sun rises or even at night?
The content and words of a ceremony led by a civil celebrant can also be tailored exactly to your wishes, whether that includes religious elements or not. So much more personal than choosing from a checklist of options or being governed by the customs and traditions of a church ceremony.
