It will be my privilege to prepare and deliver a ceremony just for you; a ceremony that will always be remembered by you & your guests; a ceremony that truly reflects your love.
Being a mother and grandmother - 'Granny Franny' - I am very sensitive to childrens needs and blended family issues. It would be my pleasure to include your children in the ceremony if you wish, so that they too can share in the marriage and the excitement of your special day.
You might choose a short and sweet type ceremony or perhaps you would like to inlcude a small ritual, personalised to you both such as the blending of sands, Love Lock ceremony, Lei exchange, handfasting, The Champagne ceremony, The Bell of Truce ceremony or Unity Candle lighting to symbolise your light of love or your union of marriage and family etc.
If you feel I would be the right celebrant for you, send me an enquiry today.
