What Can Be Included In A Wedding Ceremony?
These days many Couples come from different backgrounds,
different beliefs and different cultures.
My job as the Officiant is to skillfully blend both of your families together, without offending either side.
It is not an easy process appeasing both sides
of the family in some cases.
This is where I come in. I can design a ceremony for you that celebrates your love and affection for each other while also bringing the belief and cultures you and your families hold dear.
