Getting married is one of the biggest decisions you will make in your life, and so your wedding day should be a memorable one.

We all have different ideas on what we expect on our wedding day. Some of us want large celebrations with all the trimmings, others prefer intimate gatherings, and of course there are always elopements.

Regardless of how large or small, how intricate or laid back you plan your day, it is important that the most important part of the day – the ceremony – is perfect.

By choosing a civil ceremony for your wedding day, you are able to have input into how your ceremony is planned. This allows you to be more creative and add a more personal touch to your marriage ceremony.

Many couples choose to include marriage rituals into their ceremony such as hand-fasting and sand ceremonies. Couples who are bringing children into the marriage may also wish to incorporate them into the ceremony.
