Fees

Wedding Fees

I am very proud of my creative skills and the life experience I have had of writing, speaking and performing and this is why I am able to offer a ceremony that is really unique and special for you. Because each wedding is different, and may be created personally for each individual couple, I do not publish my fees for wedding ceremonies – these are calculated after preliminary discussion with you (without obligation) and depend on your requirements.  However, your fee will include travel and meetings with you, unlimited edits and re-writes of the script, and a visit to the venue and/or rehearsal where required.

I may be able to negotiate my fee or discount it in certain circumstances.  And in addition I offer a short and very simply personalised ceremony as part of a package for weddings at venues in and around Gretna from £130.

You will be asked for a deposit of £100 on booking which is non-refundable but deductible from the final invoice, which will be sent 3 weeks before your wedding day.

Funeral Fees

Funeral fees range from £130 – £195 and depend on the length, size, and location of the ceremony.  The fee includes an initial meeting to discuss your wishes and learn something about your loved one.  Following this I will create the ceremony and liaise further with you and others involved to ensure that the process goes smoothly.

On the day of the funeral I will be at the venue in good time to welcome you and conduct the ceremony itself.

A Consultation to Discuss Your Funeral Wishes In Advance (Funeral Pre-Planning)

My fee for this is £100 to include a meeting with you to discuss your thoughts and requirements, and preparation of a detailed script for use at your funeral service (when that day comes).

Pet Funerals

I can provide a bespoke script for you and your family to use for a garden burial for £25.  Please contact me for details if you would like me to come to your home and hold the ceremony for you.

Fees for Baby Namings and Other Ceremonies

Please inquire by telephone or email with some details of your requirements.  A very simple Naming Ceremony is available from £145.

For a Wedding Anniversary Blessing, or a Parting Blessing following divorce, fees start at £130 depending on your requirements.   A simple House Blessing is available from £75.  Please do discuss your ceremony requirements with me as there are many possibilities and options.  Travel costs may be charged for travelling distances further than 35 miles.

Fees for Counselling

As a guideline my fees for counselling are £35 per session. I would normally start with a shorter contracting session for which there is no charge.  In that first session, or preliminary telephone call we would discuss how we could work together and what we would expect to achieve from our session/s, and how many sessions might be required, as well as agreeing on a figure for the fees.
