(Or why you don't need one!)
($)Optional Additional Service
Occasionally couples ask if they need a rehearsal with me in attendance. My advice is no.
I ensure you are fully briefed, prepared and comfortable ahead of your ceremony without any need for a formal rehearsal. With my many years of event hosting and public speaking experience, you can relax and let your ceremony unfold, knowing you’re in professional, experienced and capable hands.
# My Wedding Wiki contains good advice on ceremony choreography so you can think about and plan the set-up well in advance.
# When I send you your ceremony script, I include stage directions so you can visualise what is happening when as you read through. I also send you an email with some last minute advice and tips so everyone involved is fully prepared.
# On the day, I speak to everyone before the ceremony begins so we can have a final run-through and reminder of what’s about to happen.
# I ensure guests and the wedding participants are all in the right place at the right time before and during the ceremony.
# A big part of my job on the day is making sure everything runs to plan and smoothing over any hiccups seamlessly.
# Freshness and spontaneity are important elements of a successful wedding day.
If you still feel you need a rehearsal, why not organise your own informal gathering on your own where you can practice your walk down the aisle?
If you decide to request a rehearsal with me, please note I am not available on Fridays, Saturdays or Sundays because of ceremony commitments.
