If you're having a smaller wedding than planned, how can you make the ceremony extra special for those who can attend? We asked London's Jennifer Patrice Celebrant...
A celebrant conducts a ceremony that has all the elements of a wedding, apart from the legal formalities, which you carry out at your local register office. Having a celebrant means that you can have a ceremony that's personalised and unique to you – the ceremony you always wanted but never knew you could have.
I take your relationship history and turn it into your ceremony, so when you and your loved ones hear it, you'll instantly recognise the journey you've been on together. You can have a bridal party, write your own vows and have religious content, if you wish. You can also incorporate songs and readings that you love and include friends and family in symbolic elements.
Your choices are varied and many. For example, you could light a unity candle together, have a hand-fasting, sand-pouring or ring-warming, which is where your rings are passed around your guests to imbue with good wishes. At the end of the ceremony, you can sign a certificate. I've been told that my ceremonies are loving, full of emotion, sincere and fun; it also brings me personal joy to create couples' perfect weddings.
