Fees to hire me as your celebrant in Leicestershire

Vow Renewal/ Short Notice Wedding/ Commitments/ Engagements/ Anniversaries

 If you are considering a celebrant for a wedding or vow renewal type event here is what you need to know.

Every occasion and celebration is unique, and every ceremony can be as simple or elaborate and bespoke as you choose – therefore costs may vary.

My initial local or zoom meeting is always conducted on a no-obligation, no-charge basis* and will last for around 1-1.5 hours. This is to ensure that I fully understand all of your requirements and so can provide you with a tailored service and an accurate quote.

I only conduct short notice and weekday weddings ( with less than 6 months notice) as I can tell you my actual availability more accurately during this time frame.

* except when the initial meeting is at a location exceeding 30 miles from my home charged at 40p per mile (or  it can be done via zoom or whats app free of charge if preferred)
