Making your Ceremony personal to you

You want your day to be as special as possible. And with that in mind, we offer you a host of choices to make your Ceremony just as you want it.

To begin with, you can choose from two package levels, Traditional or Enhanced, with the Enhanced package giving you the option to write your own Promises, choose the words to accompany the exchange of rings, have live music and include a Sand Ceremony or Joining of Hands Ceremony.
