Before the consultation
Determine your ceremony location.
Determine the date and specific time of your ceremony.
Call or email me to confirm my availability. I will set up a date and time for an initial consultation. This consultation will allow us to meet and to better determine the kind of ceremony that would be perfect for you. I can reached by phone at 613.292.4216 or by email at, email@example.com
At the consultation
We discuss the kind of ceremony you would like to have, i.e. traditional, contemporary, or a short and simple elopement ceremony.
We go over all the possible components for your ceremony using our planning guide and discuss what you as a couple would like to incorporate into the ceremony. i.e. vow options, ring exchange options, music, readings etc.
If you decide you would like to use my services I require a non-refundable deposit along with my online booking contract. This will confirm your date and time. We accept cash, email money transfer, or cheques. The deposit amount is $200.00.
After the consultation
Determine what the components of your ceremony will be. In order to make the ceremony intimate and personal I encourage you to choose your own vows and ring exchange as well as other special components such as readings and music. If this is all too overwhelming, I can choose the ceremony for you.
Once you have worked out the details for your ceremony, email me with this information or fill out our online forms. Let us know if you will have any special components such as the exchange of roses or a unity candle. We are very flexible and want very much for the ceremony to reflect your personality as a couple and the love you have for each other.
If you determine you would like a rehearsal, contact me to set the date and time.
NOTE: more and more couples are forgoing the rehearsal for the following reasons:
Many wedding venues are not able to accommodate a rehearsal the evening before because of other scheduled events.
Outside weddings will not be able to be set up until the morning of the ceremony. This means that there will be no music, chairs etc. with which to practice.
Wedding ceremonies are becoming more and more simple, thus a rehearsal is not necessary. Many couples simply give instructions as the day approaches.
There are additional costs to having a rehearsal.
We are available to answer any questions you may have as the wedding date grows closer, so do not hesitate to call us.
