What happens during the ceremony?

A ceremony usually lasts for around 30 minutes, but can be tailored to be as simple or as complex as you wish.

A typical ceremony includes:

  • introduction and welcome
  • readings or poems
  • music
  • declaration to each other
  • exchange rings
  • signing of the commemorative certificate
  • closing words

At the end of the ceremony you will also receive a unique commemorative certificate. You can buy additional commemorative certificates if you wish; these can be pre-ordered at a cost of £10 per certificate.
