Wherever possible, we encourage your closest people to play a role in the ceremony with a reading or a song, by assisting with one of the symbolic actions we might choose to seal the promises you have made - sand blending, hand-fasting, unity candle - or simply by witnessing your signatures on a marriage certificate.
All ceremonies involve an element of theatre – weddings in particular. And as in theatre, it’s not always the big spectaculars that have the greatest emotional impact.
Engaging with the “audience” is about being emotionally truthful, with moves that everyone will follow instinctively and appropriate intervals for music or poetry, and all in the right setting. It’s about getting the tone right, so that the look and sound and feel of the event all work together to create something truly unforgettable.
