Terms of booking

My prices are based on travelling 20 miles from Newton Abbot. Additional mileage is charged at £0.60 per mile.

Accommodation – I am happy to travel throughout the UK. Cost price for overnight stay in hotel if required will be charged. This will be discussed and arranged beforehand.


Weddings and Celebrations

Legal Status: You are aware that Celebrant-led ceremonies do not currently have legal marriage status in England and Wales. To undertake the legal requirements you must complete statutory registration at a Registry office or licensed premises. You must do this through your local registration services.  

Payment: A non-returnable £100.00 deposit is payable within 7 days of booking. Payment of any balance is due 28 days before your ceremony.

Cancellation: You have a right to cancel our contract without giving any reason within 14 days of entering into the contract. You will also receive your £100.00 deposit back within these 14 days cooling off period.

In order to exercise your right to cancel, you must inform me of your decision in writing (letter sent by post or email). I will acknowledge cancellation.

If you cancel the booking after the 14 day period and prior to the date of your ceremony you will be liable to pay:

  • 12 months or more prior – £100.00 deposit
  • 6 – 12 months prior – 50% of total fee
  • 3 – 6 months prior – 75% of total fee
  • Less than 3 months prior – 100% of total fee

Funerals and Memorials

If my services are arranged via a Funeral Director, they will arrange to pay my fee and charge you as part of their costs.

If booking directly, my fee is due 3 days prior to the ceremony.

If my services are cancelled, you will be liable for costs relating to any work carried out.

If the notice is less than 3 days, then the full fee will be due.

Let’s create your ceremony – a day of memories to be made and maybe a little laughter too!
