What happens after booking The Lanzarote Celebrant for your Wedding Day?

Updated: Feb 15, 2022

Most couples are pleasantly surprised with how much involvement they get to have with the creating of their Lanzarote Wedding Ceremony.

Most think that there is one script that I use for all, absolutely not.

Once you have secured your date with the deposit, I will send you both a questionnaire that contains 8 questions. This is to be completed in private and returned to me. Private!!! Why is that? Well, the reasons why are:

  • So that you don’t influence each other’s answers.

  • It gives you the opportunity to communicate to me anything you wish to stay a surprise!

  • And lastly, you will be soppier and more romantic when your other half isn’t listening in. Hopefully!

I will read through these answers and it will start to give me an insight into you two as individuals and also as a couple. My brain starts whirring immediately with ideas to put to you, especially what type of symbolic ritual/element we could incorporate.

We then schedule our video call (if we cannot meet in person) for a date and time that suits you both and then this is when I will ask LOTS of questions!

Rest assured, this is a fun, light-hearted chat where you will be talking and I will be scribbling away manically. Your children can attend this meeting too if they are going to play a role in the ceremony. Invite anyone who you feel needs to be apart of the planning process.

If you decide to bring a glass of Vino to our meeting though, then let me know and I’ll join you!

What next?

After our phone call I endeavour to get the first draft to you ASAP. I state in the contract of service within 6 weeks, but normally it’s much sooner that that.

I adore writing these humorous, romantic love stories and designing the whole format of the ceremony that once I start, I literally cannot stop till it’s finished.

My husband knows when I am in the middle of writing a script because I become quiet and distant, my mind can’t switch off from writing, I’ll be cooking dinner and will have to stop so that I can scribble a line or an idea down before I forget.

Once I have completed the first draft, I will send it to you both via email or WhatsApp to be reviewed.

You get to see as much or as little of the first draft as you wish. I think it’s a great idea to leave out any poems that will be read during the service and most definitely any personal, hand-written vows. This way you get to enjoy the ceremony first hand too.

Of course, you can edit the script, add bits in, take parts out, correct any mistakes until you are completely happy with the finalised script. This is your wedding and you have the power to make it exactly how you envisage.

Once we have finished editing, we can all rest easy knowing that your guests are in for a real treat.

A month before the “Big Day” we will schedule in the diary a pre-wedding rehearsal at your chosen Lanzarote Wedding Venue (when possible), this is normally scheduled for a day or two before the wedding day. (Has your tummy just done a little nervous flip thinking about the day before the wedding?! Eek)

This rehearsal is to ensure that every important member of the bridal party knows where they will be standing, sitting and what they will be saying.

Top Tip.

Music is an important part to the pre-wedding rehearsal, make sure you bring along your music on a USB stick, clearly titled: Intro, Signing, Outro.

Then its all wrapped up.

Before you know it, one of you will be standing at the altar whilst the other glides down the aisle. Your dream will become a reality.

If you would like to see some samples of my previous work to see if my style suits you and the design of your wedding, then please ask.
