Terms and conditions

Provisional Booking for a wedding:

A provisional booking will hold your date for 7 days, after which a deposit is required in order to secure your date. If a deposit isn’t received, then the date will be released and be available for other couples to book.

Firm booking:

A firm booking will be made upon payment of a deposit of 50% of the agreed fee. At this point, we will not book any other events on the day of your ceremony.

Payment of balance:

The full balance will be required one month before the ceremony. If a ceremony is booked less than one month in advance, then payment will be required in full at the point of booking.

Images and testimonials:

We may ask you for permission to use photos from your ceremony, either that we have taken or that you have let us have access to, to use for the sole purpose of promoting our services to other couples, either on our website or via social media. We may also ask you to provide a short written testimonial. You are in no way obligated to provide either.


All the information that you give us is treated as confidential and we will not disclose any of it to any third party without your express permission. The content of your ceremony will be kept confidential, with the exception of any third parties we may include in creating your ceremony.

Changes and cancellations:

Changes to the booking dates and times must be notified in writing or by email and will be accommodated whenever possible but cannot be guaranteed.

If you decide to cancel your booking with us within 14 days of paying the deposit then it will be refunded in full. After this time the deposit cannot be returned. Cancellations close to the ceremony date will result in charges as follows:

  • any travel and accommodation cost already incurred by the celebrant plus –
  • Within 3 months of the ceremony – 60% of Celebrant’s fee.
  • Within 2 months of the ceremony – 80% of Celebrant’s fee.
  • Within 1 month of the ceremony – 100% of Celebrant’s fee.

If, for whatever reason, I am unable to perform your ceremony, I will do my best to find a suitable replacement celebrant for your ceremony. If I cancel and am unable to find a replacement, you will receive a full refund.

Governing law and jurisdiction:

These terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of England and any dispute shall be subject to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts.

For ceremonies that are recognised by law in England and Wales, you must fulfil the legal requirements at a Registry Office. Some variations apply in Scotland, please contact us for details.
