This popularly written guide to the wedding ceremony clearly explains what is required by law and what can be individually tailored to meet a couple’s particular preferences and circumstances.
Wedding planners and etiquette guides abound, yet few, if any, pay much attention to the central event itself – the actual marriage ceremony. This is probably due to a lack of understanding of how flexible the ceremony can be, whether it is held in a church, registry office or at any of the venues licensed under recent legislation.
Most couples simply accept what is on offer because they do not even know they can ask for something different – this book will change that. It will enable couples to personalise their ceremony and vows, select their own readings and prayers, and include children of previous marriages where appropriate.
An attractive selection of poetry and reading is included, plus helpful advice on dealing with clergy who insist in doing things by the book!
