*A bespoke ceremony is created to your specific wishes and involves time and correspondence between us and in the final writing of the ceremony it is prepared and tailored to your especial circumstances and desires.
**A legal simple, standard ceremony - where you provide basic information and leave the rest to me.
The standard ceremony is offered only in the Scottish Borders and Edinburgh at a fee of £275 - in this case you would simply provide essential information on a questionnaire and leave the rest to me. This ceremony is for those who do not want songs, rituals, hymns, and readings. It presupposes we do not enter into lots of correspondence or communication. If you later ask for additions and special features in the ceremony, then the fee automatically reverts to the bespoke fee of £350. You must specifically request the standard ceremony at the outset. It is not available for ceremonies booked through third parties such as wedding planners.
Prices for standard ceremonies apply to the area about 40 miles around Kelso in the Scottish Borders and up to Edinburgh but not north or west of Edinburgh.
For bespoke ceremonies I will travel further afield but will need to charge for additional time and fuel costs but would agree these with you in advance,
Travel and time
Once I move beyond my home area , It means I spend more on travelling time and fuel costs and in some cases, overnight accommodation and must charge for this. This then is reflected in additional fees which would be agreed beforehand.
Fees reflect the following -
All communication in the design and planning of your ceremony
Time to plan, prepare and deliver the ceremony
Travel and time costs if within my home area.
There are no hidden costs. The price quoted is the price you pay.
SPAIN / ESPANA
