Wendy Beauchamp - marriage celebrant - Hastings

My services include as many meetings as necessary to design your perfect wedding, a rehearsal and the ceremony itself. A personalised copy of the ceremony will be handed to you after the service. Below is an indication of the process.


Getting Started

You can contact me by phone or using the contact form on my website. Make sure you inclue the date, time, and location of your wedding and any other information I might need to know. I will get back to you and let you know if I'm available and we will organise our first meeting.



At our first meeting I will try and get to know you as a couple as well as discuss the details regarding your wedding ceremony, including; guest numbers, length and feel of the ceremony, and anything specific the you want included in your special day. I can provide you with ideas for vows, readings, and different types of ceremonies to help guide you.


We can meet as many times as necesscary to plan out your big day. This doesn't have to be in person. We can stay in contact via Skype, phone and email, whatever is easiest for you!


Draft Ceremony

Once you have provided all the information I need, I will begin drafting a ceremony. Once finished, you will recieve a copy to read over and you can make any amendments. It's your special day, so I like to make sure you are 100% happy with the ceremony.



It is common practice to have a rehearsal with you and your bridal party before your big day. This ensures we all know what we are doing, where we stand and I can meet the other important people involved in your wedding. You may like to have those who are doing a reading or involved in the ceremony in other ways, like musicians. This also gives me a chance to check you have your marriage license sorted too.

Wedding Day 

On the day, I will have my cellphone on so you can contact me at anytime and I will arrive at least half an hour before the ceremony starts so I can speak to anyone participating in readings, music and witnesses etc... 


Once I have performed the ceremony, I will leave you with your signed marriage license, a copy of your personalised ceremony and leave you to have an amazing evening with your friends and family.
