Wedding Ceremonies - Personalised or Themed Wedding Ceremony

There are many different kinds of wedding and commitment ceremonies out there to choose from. Even so, tradition and ritual is not everyone's cup of tea. Some people prefer to run their ceremony on a theme or based on a personal idea or concept.

There are two ways you can go about organising a personalised ceremony. One way is the hands on approach. This means the couple sit down together and devise and write an original ceremony. You can include music, poetry, quotations or unique pieces in your service. The only rules are that Celebrant legal authorization and mention of husband and wife in the vows must be included to legally marry a couple. Without the authorization and mention of husband and wife, this ceremony may only be used as a commitment ceremony.

The other approach is to meet with your celebrant and explain what kind of ceremony would suit you. She can then create your service from scratch, bearing in mind your morals, religious stances, and any themes or traditions you want observed in the ceremony.

Some themes or ideas to inspire you:
Midnight fairy and elf wedding
Middle Earth inspired ceremony
Ceremony with a beach or ocean theme
Minimalist non romantic service
Hip Hop commitment ceremony
Futuristic or space theme
Naturist wedding
Rock and roll theme
Matrix or another favourite movie
Cinderella style
