My fees are based on creating, writing and officiating your ceremony as well as whatever time is required face to face, by Zoom, phone or email to get your ceremony exactly as you’d like it to be on the day. There are no limitations on your contact with me (once you’ve booked me as your celebrant).
On average, I spend between 10 hours (funerals) to 25 hours per ceremony (weddings) depending on the nature of it, amount of travel, time spent liaising with my clients, writing the ceremony and drafting process, research required, and time spent at the venue before and during the rehearsal day, and the ceremony.
For weddings and handfasting ceremonies, I can include the handtying cords, flowers or herbs required for rituals, use of candles, quaich, caudle, druid’s besom (jumping the broom) etc., as part of my celebrant fee.
I have my own sound system (amplifier and lapel mic) so you can be assured all your guests will hear me.
Weddings and Handfasting Ceremonies
Naming (babies, children, adults including transgender)
Parting of the Ways
Funeral or Memorial
Interment or Scattering of the Ashes
All other rites of passage: (e.g.) Menarche, Sagesse, Amputation, New Home or Business Blessing, Graduation, Coming of Age. Ceremonies are available for all rites of passage.
Please note: The only ceremonies I officiate on Saturdays are weddings and vow renewals.
I ask for a 50% deposit which allows me to secure the date for you (I don’t officiate more than one ceremony a day), and begin working on your ceremony.
The balance is due no later than one calendar month before your ceremony. (Funeral fees are due on the day of the ceremony)
** There is a travel fee of 45p a mile after the first 20 miles from Carlisle.
