Fees

 

Marriage ceremony or marriage blessing £275
   

Fees are inclusive of

Wedding fee .. Planning, preparation and delivery
Travel ..(time and fuel costs) if within the Glasgow, Edinburgh, Perth triangle.
 

The fee also includes

  1. All prior discussions and contacts by phone, e-mail or in one of the following venues - Linlithgow, and Dobbies Garden Centres Stirling or Dunfermline. 
     
  2. Design and preparation of your ceremony according to your desires and requirements. I do not provide standard "off-the-shelf" ceremonies. Each ceremony is designed to your wishes.
     
  3. Delivery of the ceremony
     
  4. Travel time and costs to the ceremony
     
  5. Issue of a personalised rehearsal schedule to guide you through any rehearsal should you decide to have one. (It is not essential for me to attend as this would add to time and costs.)

The fee does not include

  1. My travel costs and time to attend meetings other than the day of the ceremony
     
  2. Travel, time and accommodation costs if meetings or ceremony are held outside my home areas  (Further afield than Glasgow, Ediniburgh, Perth.)

Booking

Once you make a booking for a specific date, you will be asked to

  1. Acknowledge receipt of the mailing and attachments by return. Without this, and should another enquiry arrive in the meantime, any new booking by another couple will take priority.
     
  2. Confirm your booking within one month* or the date given by making the necessary deposit and advising that this has been done.

If the booking is not confirmed by the date required, it will automatically be cancelled. This is because I often have requests for the same date, and I therefore need to operate a "first to confirm" policy. No reminders are issued.

Deposit
A non refundable deposit of  £50 is due when confirming the booking. Until this deposit has been received then your booking is not confirmed.

Pay Pal Secure

Cancellation and Insurance

Though no one wants to think about cancellation, sadly cancellations can and do happen for all sorts of reasons.

You may therefore wish to consider insurance to cover you in the event of cancellation. Numerous companies can be found online.

My promise is as follows

Responding to your original enquiry promptly, I will issue a number of documents usually by e-mail.

  • Introductory letter
  • A questionnaire

Further documents are available on request

  • Vows
  • Readings
  • Rituals
  • Tips on speaking in public
  • Wedding etiquette

I then undertake to

  • respond always in a timely manner
  • once I have your completed questionnaire, provide a ceremony rundown which also acts as a rehearsal walk-through (I do not attend rehearsals given the vast geographic territory which I cover.)

I reserve the right

  • To withdraw my services if the terms and conditions are not met by the due date without prior agreement and the balance of the fee has not been paid.

Other

I am sometimes asked to attend the wedding reception. For numerous reasons (often travel distances, time, other commitments) I will decline but please don't take this as me being ungrateful.

Your undertaking is to

  • Acknowledge receipt of the documents by return
  • Confirm and pay the booking deposit by the date given
  • Organise the civil (legal) ceremony (in a Spanish, Gibraltar, or home country registry office.)
  • In Scotland, apply to the Local Registry office for bans of marriage.
  • If to be held in a church, all discussions with the church regarding the ceremony
  • Let me have your vows and any other information I need at least six weeks before the ceremony (or by date given)
  • Provide the fully completed questionnaire and vows by the date given.
  • Keep me informed of any changes to your plans eg date or time of ceremony, ceremony content. If you are to change the date, time or venue, please check my availability first as I may be unable to accommodate the change. Sometimes couples have significantly changed the start time, unaware that I had other commitments or changed the actual date without confirming I was available and rang to ask why I had not turned up! (I know! Unbelievable but true!) It's perhaps worth mentioning that I and other service providers may have other appointments before / after yours. This is especially so if using a church where there may be an imminent mass or service.
  • Provide the text for any readings or poems together with the full name of those who are to deliver the pieces.
  • Provide all support materials eg microphone, altar table, etc requested - if these are not provided I hold no responsibility if the ceremony does not run as we agree
  • Settle the balance of the fee before we begin the ceremony
  • Read the ceremony rundown schedule

 

Changes at Short Notice
We will work together to create the perfect ceremony. It can happen that couples will make slight changes to the ceremony closer to the date eg they may add in an extra poem or ritual. Please advise me ahead of time of the changes.
