• THE JOYS OF CHOOSING YOUR OWN WEDDING CEREMONY

    Once you have decided to get married, the next step is to prepare for your wedding.

    Nothing compares to the joys of planning and choosing your own wedding ceremony, even if a newly married bride tells you otherwise! Ideally, planning for your wedding ceremony should only involve the inputs of you and your fiancé but before you know it your mother, mother-in-law, sisters, friends, even your great grandmother, if you are lucky enough to have one, will all be advising you on what should be included in the wedding ceremony and what their experiences have been.

    How do you go ahead and make a choice?
    Experienced wedding officiants can help you choose between various types of wedding ceremonies. Here’s a quick guide to some of the popular marriage ceremonies.

  • FORMAL WEDDING CEREMONY

    An extravagant affair, formal wedding ceremony is the one that Prince William and Princess Kate had. Beautiful ambience with exquisite flower arrangements, formal ball gowns, engraved invitations and placement settings, multi-tier cake, ballroom music and at least a four course meal, this wedding goes the whole hog. A formal dress code for all the invited guests and a few hundred guests, at the very minimum, are the hallmarks of a formal marriage ceremony. Steeped in tradition and age-old customs, these weddings are known to go on for the whole afternoon! They may take months to plan because you need to get everything right, but they are worth it, as your wedding photos will prove time and again.

  • INFORMAL CEREMONY

    You have the freedom to customize every aspect of your marriage ceremony and wedding reception. Select special traditions or come up with something completely new. An informal wedding typically has a more intimate feel.

  • NON-RELIGIOUS // SECULAR CEREMONY

    You don’t have to be of religious background or belief to get married. We believe that the ceremony is about the love that the two of you share. You are the most important focus on your special day and with your input you can decide how you want the ceremony to proceed. This type of wedding ceremony can take place anywhere you like. You will immediately receive your legal marriage certificate at the wedding ceremony.

  • RELIGIOUS // NON-DENOMINATIONAL CEREMONY

    You choose the spiritual tone and traditions to suit your wedding ceremony. We can work with you to create your vision and incorporate your beliefs. We can do a full church ceremony with readings from the bible, vows, pronouncement of marriage, blessing and closing prayers.

  • THEMED CEREMONY

    If you are a Cinderella fan, you can have the princess theme everywhere in your wedding ceremony, right from your cutlery to your party favours. Themed weddings can generate a lot of fun, not just for the bride and the groom but also for the invited guests. You can keep them as intimate as you want or invite the whole town, they will accommodate everyone, as long as the theme is being followed. The marriage officer will adjust and accommodate your marriage ceremony according to your flair.

This sort of wedding is the most to attend and has the family vibe which no other ceremony type can offer.
