Commitment Ceremonies

Making a public declaration of commitment is saying to the world 'this person is important to me' and I am choosing to be with them.

I can create a ceremony that tells your story and why you want to be together. You can make vows and promises infront of family and friends, and include poetry, music and readings. It can be formal or relaxed, there are no rules except that this ceremony is completely personal to you.

 

You can exchange rings or gifts and I can include any symbolic actions you'd like to do, like lighting a unity candle, or a sand ceremony.

 

A commitment ceremony may be for you if you can't get married or be in a civil partnership because you're legally tied to someone else.  Or perhaps you dont want to have a legally binding relationship for personal reasons.

 

It's a lovely way of expressing your love......and well, commitment!
