2018/19 Pricing Structure for weddings

 
Option 1 - Standard Wedding Celebrant Service. £350.00*
 
  • Initial ‘getting to know you’ telephone call: I will make an appointment to telephone or video call via Skype/face time.  I will talk to you both about the ceremony of your choice, your story as a couple and your hopes and aspirations for your very special day. This will give me all that I need to put together a beautiful, meaningful and memorable day for both of you, your family and friends. This will normally take up to 90 minutes and a follow-up call/video call may be required.

  •  A copy of the True to You Celebrancy guide to writing your own wedding vows.

  • Access to a large library of vows, readings, and poems. This in no way prevents you from adding your own choices and these will be incorporated into the ceremony.  

  • The writing of the ceremony, including the order of service and a first draft copy. Amendments as necessary. This may require several telephone/skype calls or email exchanges. 

  • Delivering the ceremony up to 2 hours: At a venue of your choice is part of your basic costs. An extended ceremony would incur further pre-agreed costs. 

  • Use of Bluetooth enabled wireless PA system. Helpful for readings and playing your choice of music at outdoor venues or venues with no music delivery system.  

  • One printed copy of the ceremony on high-quality paper as a memento of your day.  

 

 

Option 2 – Enhanced Wedding Celebrant Service. £425.00*

 

 

  • Initial ‘getting to know you’ face to face meeting of up to 2 hours: I will visit to talk with you about your story and your journey so far. We think together about your hopes and aspirations for your wedding ceremony and what it is important to you as a couple to include. This relaxed, valuable time allows us to get to know each other so that you feel 100% confident that I understand you as individuals and as a couple. A follow-up visit or telephone call/s may be required and this is included at no additional cost. We can then lovingly create a truly bespoke and personal ceremony, one which becomes a beautiful, meaningful and memorable day for both of you, your family and friends. 

  • A copy of the True to You Celebrancy guide to writing your own vows.

  • Access to a large library of vows, readings, and poems. This in no way prevents you from adding your own choices and these will be incorporated into the ceremony.  

  • The writing of the ceremony and a first draft copy. Amendments as necessary. If required, one additional follow up face to face meeting is included in your package and as many follow up telephone calls, and or video calls as is necessary.

  • 2 printed copies of your ceremony on high-quality paper.

  • The ceremony rehearsal – up to 2 hours:  Prior to the ceremony is part of your basic costs. Rehearsals are the best way to choreograph the ceremony and sound check where applicable – especially at outdoor ceremonies or large barns etc. You can then feel reassured that everybody is clear about their roles, that you are happy with the order of service and how it fits around your carefully chosen setting – especially if you are having a symbolic element to your ceremony and involving others in this. You are then free to relax in the precious few days or hours before your ceremony assured in the knowledge that everything is in hand. An extended or second rehearsal will incur further pre-agreed costs.

  • Delivering the ceremony up to 2 hours: At a venue of your choice is part of your basic costs. An extended ceremony would incur further pre-agreed costs. 

  • Use of Bluetooth enabled wireless PA system. Helpful for readings and playing your choice of music at outdoor venues or venues with no music delivery system.

  • Formal certificates for your wedding party, witnesses, or anybody you identify as having played a significant role in the ceremony. 

 

*Additional costs apply to all packages: 

​​

  • Travel: Travel within a 40 mile radius of Leeds City Centre is included in the basic price of your ceremony (excluding the script only ceremony option). I calculate mileage using the AA route planner and Leeds City Centre is classed as LS1 2HT. Beyond this distance will be charged at an additional 45 pence per mile. This is applied to your face to face meetings and the day of the ceremony.

  • I am more than happy to help you create an order of service without any additional charge. Printing the ceremony will remain your responsibility unless you would like me to do so. Price on application for this service. 

  • Additional copies of certificates/ceremonies: £2.00 for certificates and £3.00 for full copies of ceremonies.

  • Symbolic ceremonial keepsakes:  These may be sourced by the couple or True to You Celebrancy can provide them for a pre-agreed additional cost.

  • For your marriage to be recognised by law, you must register the legal paperwork. In the UK if you are holding a celebrant led wedding ceremony, this can easily be done by appointment at your local registrar's office. Rates for this begin at £50. Although there is absolutely nothing stopping you from having your beautiful ceremony before registering the paperwork, it is important to note that your marriage will not be recognised in law until the paperwork is completed. I recommend that as a couple you make the necessary arrangements to complete the legalities before your Celebrant Wedding Ceremony (28 days notice is required). Please contact your local authority for information about legal formalities.
