Describe your typical process with a couple.
Initially, I usually meet or Skype with the couple where I can find out what sort of wedding they have in mind and they can decide if I'm the right celebrant for them. After booking me, I send them a questionnaire to get them thinking about their relationship and what the ceremony means to them. We will then have a meeting where we create the ceremony. I'll then write a draft and send it to them for editing, this can be as many times as they like. I'll have a rehearsal with them a day or two before the ceremony, and then I'll conduct the ceremony.
