Celebrant Fees – Weddings & Vow Renewals

Our Professional Celebrant prices are inclusive of many elements; they also reflect our extensive expertise and years of experience within the wedding industry.  Do remember this when comparing with other Celebrants’ fees or those of a standard Civil Marriage Registrar.  Below is exactly what you get in our highly personalised and raved-about ceremonies!  

We do offer a lower cost Ceremony Writing-Only service for couples who have a friend or relative in mind to be their Celebrant.  Ask us for details so we can get started on your perfect ceremony! 

Do get in touch if you need a Celebrant to help you with a smaller Micro Wedding.  Intimate Weddings and London Elopements are also our speciality – attracting a smaller price! 

Our local areas are Kent, Surrey, Sussex, and parts of London.  We’re very happy to quote for ceremonies further afield, or for destination weddings abroad.   (Note that additional travel and accommodation costs would apply on top of these base prices – Contact Us to ask.)


What’s included in our Prices?

Wedding Ceremony or Vow Renewal Ceremony: from £900

  • An initial free consultation in person.  We’ll do this via Zoom for our international couples or those based too far away to share coffee and cake or a glass of wine!  If you think we’re a good match, that’s awesome!  It’s so important to make a personal connection as we’ll be beside you on probably the most important day of your lives.  Equally, there’s no problem if you decide to choose another Celebrant at this stage.    
  • Detailed couple homework to prepare for our Planning Meeting, in the form of a lengthy discovery questionnaire. This is how we dig down to into your backstory and plans for the day!  You will receive example vows, and ring wording as well as plenty of suggestions for rituals and readings.  Couples tell us they absolutely love the process of completing this together as it brings back so many happy memories!
  • We hold a kick-off ceremony planning meeting in person.  We ideally combine this with a venue or site visit if you’re marrying at home.  This is where all your lovely ideas combine with ours and we can start to visualise your beautiful wedding ceremony.  
  • Our years of experience really pay off with tons of help and advice for all your ceremony content. We’ll discuss symbolism that suits your personalities.  Some couples go all out and include many different rituals – others want to keep it simple, it’s totally up to you.

  • Together we create a unique and personal ceremony script written just for the two of you: no-one else will have anything quite like it.  It will tell your love story and will include moments of humour, emotion and a few tears.  We’ve even written poems for our couples!
  • We stay in touch all the way through your journey via email, more Zooms and often a WhatsApp group chat where we can quickly share useful information.  We’ll also be liaising in full with your Wedding Planner or on-the-day Coordinator if you have one.   
  • We meet again when we deliver your full Rehearsal and logistical walk-through at your venue in person, close to the wedding.  Very often this will be the day before, and so it’s good to assemble your parents and key members of the wedding party to take part.

  • You’ll get use of Katie’s wireless portable PA system with mics, so that we can play your ceremony music (if not using live musicians) and everyone can hear your wonderful ceremony words, and those all important vows.  (This will save you hiring PA kit especially)
  • On your Wedding Day we’ll be there in plenty of time. We usually aim for 90 minutes beforehand, to ensure that set up and practice is well over before your guests arrive.  We perform your wedding ceremony professionally on the day, for as long as you need us.  We’ll only ever book two same day ceremonies if plenty of contingency is built in.
  • We provide quality printed readings and vow cards for use in your ceremony and to retain as keepsakes.  Some couples also like to sign a symbolic certificate with their witnesses to mark this special day.

Micro Wedding or Elopement Wedding Ceremony: from £650

This is the perfect choice for a smaller, more intimate wedding ceremony.  It could be just the two of you if you choose to elope, or up to 10 guests for a micro ceremony.  There is no need for a rehearsal as we keep things very simple in terms of logistics.  You will still get the same exacting, high level of service as we provide for our full Weddings.  Although it’s likely to be a shorter, more pared-back ceremony with less ritual, and more love story-focused. 

Ceremony Writing Service only: from £750

This is our offering for clients who are having a symbolic wedding ceremony abroad.  When getting married in Italy, Spain or France couples often have a friend or relative acting as their Officiant.  All the planning and communication will likely be over Zoom for this service.  We’ll create your bespoke ceremony script exactly as we do for our full priced wedding ceremonies.  We offer online coaching to help the person who will be performing your script.  They may be seasoned public speakers, but have possibly never taken a wedding ceremony before!  This service includes detailed liaison and coordination with your chosen Wedding Planner.
