Booking your big day – Information about Ceremonies
f you are interested in a Ceremony or have specific date you would like check is available please don't hesitate to get in touch and find out a little bit more about how I can help.
Prices for my ceremonies can be found on the relevant ceremony pages as well as what is included in the ceremony cost, however if you do have any questions please don't hesitate to ask.
If there is something that is not included in my cost you would like to me to help with just let me know. If you feel that you would like additional meetings that are not included in the ceremony cost I am more than happy to accommodate but would just need to add the additional travel at the recommended rate of 45p per mile. Alternatively you would be more than welcome to meet me in Haverfordwest without any additional travel costs. I do not charge extra for my time because as your celebrant I am there to help create your day with you and am always happy for you to call or Skype to have a chat or email me and make sure that we get your ceremony right for you.
Travel within 40 miles of Haverfordwest is included in my Prices (*excluding additional meetings) however if you venue is outside of this area I can adjust my prices accordingly so you know what the price of your ceremony would be before booking, I work out all additional travel via google maps.
If you decide you would like me to help provide items such as balloons or a vase and sand for a Sand Ceremony I would be more than happy to help and any additional costs would be discussed and agreed. These can be added to the ceremony cost throughout the process and settled 6 weeks prior to the ceremony with the remaining balance or at the time of request if requested less than 6 weeks to the ceremony.
Booking your Ceremony
If you would like to book your ceremony with me I will hold the date for 7 days pending receipt of your deposit. A non-refundable 50% of your ceremony fee is required to secure the date and time for your ceremony and I will provide a booking form with a clear outline of cost so that you know exactly what the ceremony fee will be.
Payment of the remaining balance is due is due 6 weeks prior to the ceremony, unless the booking is made with less than 6 weeks to go, at which time payment is required in full upon booking.
By booking a Ceremony you are entering into a contract with Wickham's Civil Ceremonies so you can be assured your date will be held for your Ceremony & I will endeavour to make your day perfect for you.
Testimonials & Photographs
It is lovely to hear about my couples and families and experiences and I always welcome feedback about ceremonies so if you wish to write a testimonial I would love to hear what you felt about your day.
I am always updating my website and blog so if you do have any photographs from your ceremony that you would be happy for me to share on my Websites and Facebook page please let me know as I am very proud to be a part of my couples and families ceremonies and its lovely to be able to share these with those who may also be deciding whether a Ceremony is right for them.
As Celebrant Ceremonies are not legally binding within Wales or England please be aware that you must attend a Registry Office to formalise the legal requirements if you wish to be legally married, however this can be done very simply by the Registry Office. If you wish to register and have your Celebrant Ceremony on the same day we can make sure that we time your ceremony to fit around your Registry appointment.
Changes to Booking Dates & Cancellations
If for any reason you need to change your date requested changes to bookings will be accommodated wherever possible.
As highlighted above to secure your booking and the date of your ceremony a non-refundable deposit of 50% of your ceremony fee is required which is not refundable in the event that you cancel. If cancellation is made 6 weeks before your ceremony payment of the remaining balance would not be required. If you have settled the fee in full at the time of booking a refund of 50% of the ceremony fee would be given. In the event you have to cancel with less than 6 weeks to the ceremony date 80% of your fee is non refundable and a 20% refund would be given, unless cancellation is on the day of the ceremony in which case the full fee must be paid and is non-refundable.
As your celebrant I offer support and guidance both before and on the day of your ceremony, so please feel free to call or get in touch if you have any questions, need some advice or ideas or want to make any changes or amendments to your ceremony.
I am there to help make your day perfect for you or your celebration for your loved one as special as they are, so will always try to help in anyway I can.
