An independent celebrant can perform the ceremony of your choosing. Free from constraints that traditional clergy and humanist celebrants may adhere to. The legal aspect of the wedding is carried out prior to the ceremony, in a registry office. This leaves you the option to celebrate your wedding however and wherever you choose. There are no set rules, this is an opportunity for the couple to celebrate the love they have for each other and declare the commitment they have made to one another, through their vows and the exchange of rings. The ceremony may include music, songs, poetry, readings or hymns that are personal to the couple. Family and friends can be involved, as much or as little as the couple would like in the celebration of their union. The freedom an independent celebrant can offer, when planning your wedding, includes both the content and location of your special day. Your individually designed ceremony may be entirely non-religious or include religious content if you wish. The choice of location for the ceremony venue can be anywhere of your choosing, as long as the appropriate permissions are obtained where needed. Married couples may wish to renew their vows, as a celebration of a special anniversary or to reaffirm their commitment and love for one another. Original vows may be used or the couple may choose to write new ones, to reflect their time together.
