I am keen to share this testimonial, kindly written by K and C, here on my blog as again it highlights my Celebrancy practice and how we can all pivot together to create a ceremony, a celebration that is right for you. It may be micro but it can be magical x
Our original plan had been a 100 person ceremony with family and friends followed by a weekend of celebrations, however, that was not to be. What replaced this original plan was something more intimate and special, as Andrea likes to call it a Micro Wedding where the focus moved from the celebration to the ceremony. With barely a couple of week’s notice we had to put our plan in motion. Andrea took all of this in her stride and at short notice was able to adapt and create a ceremony that was unique and memorable for us.
Before the dreaded COVID-19 came into all of our lives, we had already started the process of planning our ceremony with Andrea. The creative tasks that she gave us really helped us to tap into how we wanted our ceremony to look and feel. From exercises for us to complete both separately and together to ideas of rituals or additions to our ceremony that would never have crossed our minds – it was clear from the start that our ceremony was going to be something that truly represented us and our story. Nothing was off the table when it came to how we wanted our ceremony to look and this really made it feel like our own, this was not just an adaptation of a wedding ceremony but a personal ritual that between us had been created solely for us.
When we decided that an intimate, ‘micro’ celebration was what we wanted to move forward with, Andrea adapted beautifully and made herself available for us at any time to ensure we felt prepared and comfortable with our new ceremony plan. One thing that sets Andrea apart in her work is her insistence on getting to spend time with and know you – both together as a couple but also individually. This truly came into focus when we had only two weeks to finish preparing our ceremony.
Andrea’s work is not only about the words that represent your union on the day, but also how you want the physical space to feel. The symbolic thought behind so many of Andrea’s ideas and thoughts make your ceremony feel even more special as there is meaning behind things that no one else there will see. An intimacy to the day that is reserved just for you.
There is no other word to use for our day apart from magical and so much of this is down to Andrea’s input. We truly couldn’t have envisioned anyone else marry us. Thank you Andrea for your thoughtfulness, wisdom and most of all for being a part of our day.
Lots of love
