Are you having a hard time finding an awesome officiant for your wedding, and have decided to go the “ordained for the day” route with a friend or family member? I offer freelance ceremony writing services & consulting for couples who want a Celebrant wedding, but can’t find someone in the area. You’ll get a beautiful, custom Celebrant ceremony, that reflects your personality and relationship, including any additional rituals or traditions you’d like to include.
These services are perfect for:
*Having a friend or family member ordained or solemnized for the day
*Couples unable to find an officiant who will honor your beliefs (or lack there of!)
*Couples who want a custom wedding ceremony, but don’t want to be stressed with the research and writing!
The process works much the same as my other wedding ceremonies – I’ll send you a questionnaire, with tons of questions about you, your partner, and your relationship. Unlimited email and phone consultations are included, and most communication is done via email.
I also offer help and assistance with your personal vows! I can help you to write your own, or assist in finding the perfect vows that really speak to you.
At least two weeks before the ceremony, you’ll receive the full ceremony script, cue sheets, information on running a rehearsal, and tips for your officiant and you for the big day. I promise the ceremony will be perfect – memorable, sweet, and truly a moment that you, your fiance, and all of your guests will remember forever.
Please contact me for pricing and to be added into my calendar! Fees for full ceremony services begin at $450.
I am also available to help you with ceremony editing and consulting services, if you have already put your own ceremony together and just need a little help. Ceremony editing and consulting services range from $100 to $300.
A non-refundable retainer is required to hold your place in my calendar, with the remainder due before the final ceremony is delivered. PayPal, credit cards, and checks are accepted.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions, or to schedule a no obligation phone consultation!
When my (now) husband and I asked a friend to perform our ceremony, we knew we needed someone to write it. A Google search led me to Jessie and I’m so thankful it did! She was wonderful to work with and created a beautifully personalized ceremony for us. Many of our guests loved the uniqueness of it! No matter where you live, if you’re looking for a ceremony that truly speaks to who you are as a couple, I would highly recommend Jessie’s writing services!
