Your Wedding

A Vivid Expres­sion of YouColleen Good Celebrant

Every aspect of your wed­ding reflects your per­son­al­ity, your spir­i­tu­al­ity, your cul­ture and the unique­ness of who you are as a cou­ple.  Every deci­sion you make is a brush stroke in the work of art that will be your wed­ding day. No deci­sion is more impor­tant than who you choose to offi­ci­ate your cer­e­mony.  I would be deeply hon­ored to be your Celebrant.

Wed­ding Cer­e­mony Creation

My first pri­or­ity is to have a clear view of your vision for your wed­ding cer­e­mony.  The cer­e­mony can be as cre­ative, fun, tra­di­tional, edgy, con­ser­v­a­tive, reli­gious, sec­u­lar, cul­tur­ally diverse, spir­i­tual, or out­ra­geous as you are.  There are no rules, laws or reg­u­la­tions that deter­mine what your cer­e­mony should be.  The tra­di­tional wed­ding cer­e­mony that we are all so famil­iar with is a prod­uct of cul­tural and reli­gious tra­di­tions.  With my help, your cer­e­mony will be a very per­sonal state­ment, woven together with songs, poems, read­ings, vows and rit­u­als that accu­rately reflect your cul­ture as a cou­ple; it will be deeply imbued with sym­bol­ism and mean­ing for you.

The Cer­e­mony Cre­ation Process

The process of Heart Craft­ing a Cer­e­mony has sev­eral steps. We will start with a no-obligation meet­ing to dis­cuss your vision. This ‘heart to heart’ con­ver­sa­tion, although best done in per­son, it can be done by phone.  We dis­cuss your ideas, answer your ques­tions and take the tem­per­a­ture of our cre­ative syn­ergy.  If we feel the match is right, we come to an agree­ment and for­mal­ize our inten­tions in a contract.

Next you fill out a writ­ten ques­tion­naire that will help me under­stand your story, your val­ues, your per­sonal sym­bols, and your cul­tural or famil­ial influ­ences; your vision for your wed­ding.  This is an essen­tial step that does require some time and effort on your part.  This is my win­dow into your heart and soul.  All the details of the cer­e­mony will come directly from the infor­ma­tion that you pro­vide either ver­bally or in this questionnaire.

At the heart of every wed­ding cer­e­mony is the love story.  From the ques­tion­naire I will write your story and craft your cer­e­mony to reflect who you are as a cou­ple.  The script for your wed­ding will be fully writ­ten out in detail and you will approve every word.  You review and edit your cer­e­mony script to your heart’s con­tent. We will work together to make revi­sions until it is perfect.

Your Wed­ding Day

Celebrant Wedding CeremonyThe day of the Cer­e­mony, I will offi­ci­ate the event by the script that we have crafted together. I man­age the rehearsal, if you have one, and I will work closely with your other ven­dors, the pho­tog­ra­pher, the musi­cians, the venue & wed­ding pro­fes­sion­als to insure that your cer­e­mony is a coor­di­nated and smooth run­ning event.  Let me worry about all the details of the cer­e­mony so that you can breathe, relax and fully expe­ri­ence what is truly one of the most pro­found, sacred and mov­ing rit­u­als with the power to trans­form two indi­vid­u­als into a family.

 Fee for Service

I will pro­vide a final quote after I have heard the details of your wed­ding; the size, loca­tion and plans.  This is gen­er­ally in the neigh­bor­hood of $400 to $500.  I expect to spend between 10 and 20 hours on a fully cus­tomized cer­e­mony.  Any­one who has seen a Cel­e­brant wed­ding knows the value of this atten­tion to detail, the cre­ativ­ity and the per­son­al­iza­tion of the wed­ding ser­vice. I look for­ward to work­ing with you. Con­tact me to arrange for the first step, our no-obligation meet­ing.                    Con­tact Colleen.
