My very beautiful friend, Victoria, marrying her partner, Adam, of over twenty years (finally!)  

First and foremost – congratulations on your engagement!  The coming months and weeks will be full of exciting decisions such as the dresses, suits, flowers, cake, venue and songs!  My role in your big day is quite simple: it is to tell your love story.  I truly think I have the best job in the world!

So, we will start off by having a conversation, either face to face or via a video chat.  This initial meeting will be to get to know each other, for you to ask me any questions and for me to get to know a little about you.  At the end of this meeting, I truly hope that you will have decided to have me as the celebrant for your wedding.

At this point I would ask for you to sign a contract and for a 50% deposit of me fee.

I will then arrange three initial meetings with you.  The first will be a meeting together to gather some shared memories, stories and other information that will help me write your love story.  I will then meet with you individually, this can be done in person or via video chat, to ask you about your love for each other.  All of these meetings will work around your time and availability.

I will then begin to write your love story and this I will share with you to ensure that I have everything just as it was.  I will also guide you through the process of writing your vows to make sure you express your love using your words.


I do love a story and I love telling a story even more!  I can't wait to tell yours!

There are some additional that you may like to think about including on your wedding day


Handfasting is an ancient Celtic ritual in which the hands are tied together to symbolise the binding of two lives.    This ancient tradition is a perfect way demonstrate your commitment and love to each other.

Bottle Ceremony

For me, it would be a bottle of champagne!  We all have a favourite bottle to share with each other.  This is a way to share a bottle, which is sealed on your wedding day, on your first anniversary.  We would also ask guests to write messages of love and support for you to share.  You may also want to include a love letter to open a year later as you celebrate your first anniversary (which is of course marked by paper).

A Sand Ceremony

A sand ceremony is a perfect way to celebrate a blended family and to involve children.  Each member of the new family choosing a coloured sand and they are poured into a glass bottle.  This is a wonderful way to show that two families have become one.

The Oath Stone

The Oathing Stone is an old Scottish tradition where the couple place their hands upon a stone while saying their wedding vows. Taken from the ancient Celtic custom of “setting an oath in stone”, inclusion of the oath stone ceremony in the vows can be deeply moving.  We use hand painted stones and rose quartz which speaks softly to all kinds of love; from healing communication with family to developing a deeper bond with spouses and friends, and even bringing sweeter notes of self-care into your own world.

Nightingale Celebrants are proud to celebrate love in all shapes and forms and are committed to providing excellent ceremonies for everyone.  As has been said many times, quite simply, Love is Love!

What ever your plans for the day, let us help you make sure it is a day to remember.
