I was a guest at a wedding on Saturday that Liz was the Marriage Celebrant for…. 

This is the first time I have seen Liz “perform” and must congratulate her on a wonderful job done.   She acted in the most beautiful way, just really facilitating what was important to the couple.   It wasn’t at all about her, it was all about them, which she says is the way she likes to do it!   I also realised what a lot of  hard work had gone into it beforehand to make it a perfect day!

For some couples, the idea of a big wedding with all the expense, organisation, excitement and drama is definitely the last thing they want. They just want to get married.

Often these couples simply book an appointment at their local Registry Office, believing that’s the only option. There are alternatives – which means couples have choices about timing and venues.

It is absolutely possible to have a ‘low key’ marriage ceremony that is still dignified and joyful.

You can choose to have a minimal script, with the proceedings taking less than 15 minutes.

Getting married at Breakfast or during a Sundowner might be rather lovely?

All that is needed are 2 witnesses over the age of 18 – they don’t even have to be known to the couple.  How much fun to invite 2 strangers from a nearby table in a restaurant for instance!!   Wouldn’t they have a story to tell the next day…..
