Commitment Ceremony

A commitment ceremony is a public declaration of love and commitment between you and your partner. This ceremony is very similar to a marriage ceremony but is not legally binding. The content and style of every commitment ceremony will be different, and tailored to the wants and needs of each individual couple. Your ceremony can be as traditional and formal as you like, or relaxed and completely free to be a reflection of you.

We will get to know you both and create a unique, custom written ceremony that captures the essence of your relationship. We do not believe that one size fits all when it is something as personal as the formalisation of your love. You may have some great ideas of your own for your dream day. We can help you with a custom written ceremony in which you can have all the input or leave it up to us to create something great. Either way we’ll make it a truly special and memorable occasion.

In a typical Commitment Ceremony, there could be a Commitment Ceremony reading or two, an undertaking to work towards a life long commitment and an exchange of rings.
