Describe your typical process with a couple.
Once you've booked either Kate... or Kate, we'll send you a questionnaire to 'get to know' you better. This is just a starting point to work from, it isn't set in stone. We'll then meet/ speak on the phone to go through your questionnaire and your further ceremony requirements, writing a bespoke ceremony which will be completely personal to you and you will have approval of. We can write something that mirrors a traditional wedding ceremony or, throw the rule book out of the window and have dancing girls and a big brass band. We turn up about an hour before the ceremony, meet each of you in turn to talk you through everything and calm those last-minute nerves. Then, woo-hoo, it's the main event - we'll conduct your ceremony with feeling, flair, warmth and wit and throw a bit of gentle sentiment in there too, for good measure. We only have one ceremony on any given day, so will not be rushing in from one or rushing off to another one - we're all yours. And we even give you a beautiful commemorative certificate to remember the day by. What's not to like!
What is the most unusual thing you’ve been asked to plan?
Themed weddings can be interesting! Between us we've been pirates, witches and Star War characters! Love a bit of dressing up!
How do you ensure a stress-free wedding?
Drugs and alcohol...!! Only joking! We know exactly what we're doing and can anticipate any problems before they arise - you really are safe in our hands.
What do you love most about your job?
The privilege of being part of people's lives at such an amazing time... It's a bit icky but we really do mean it. Even after all these years, we still bloody love a wedding!
What is your favourite moment at a wedding?
When the couple spend the first moments after the service signing their Commemorative Certificate and relax together after the tension of the ceremony. Suddenly you see the real them and it's just gorgeous.
