Destination Weddings

 

DESTINATION DELUXE WEDDINGS WORLDWIDE

Bespoke Deluxe Wedding Ceremonies created just for you and delivered in an overseas destination of your choice.

Anywhere – Anytime – Any Style!

Many couples dream of choosing a destination wedding for the simple reason they represent such good value for money and are generally more intimate.

The decision to marry outside of the U.K often causes a dilemma for couples who wish to have a legal British Marriage License.

The couple is unlikely to know the content of the ceremony or have an opportunity to meet their officiant prior to the day.

The ceremony may be conducted by a minister or officiant who does not have English as their first language.

One thing is missing – an English speaking celebrant delivering your own personal deluxe ceremony, following legal vows.

           

Dream differently and make it happen!

Glenda says “My desire is to get to know you both and bring your expressions of love and commitment to each other and life a reality. Whether your ceremony is planned for many or a few, I will ensure you are at the heart of it. Let me work with you both, to bring a balance of devotion, sincerity, humour, elements of fun and moments of reflection, right into the heart of your ceremony. It will be created in a way that you are both comfortable with and reflects your spiritual beliefs, cultural backgrounds, and family wishes. All delivered with an English accent that all your guests will be able to understand! Giving you a total peace of mind. Whatever your dream, I will support you to make it come true.  ”

With a wealth of experience in making dreams like yours come true, let cloud9ceremonies share in and create your ceremony.

The destination and planning of your wedding day will be up to you to decide.

 PLANNING YOUR DESTINATION WEDDING CEREMONY

 TO BE DELIVERED ANYWHERE IN THE REST OF THE WORLD

A wedding ceremony planned in the UK will offer you complete peace of mind.

You will most probably be in control of almost every aspect of your destination wedding planning; flights, hotel, food, flowers, decor and of course your invited guest list. However, your wedding ceremony, wherever it is held, will most certainly not be in your control. It will be conducted by a local person in the country of destination. This may be a religious minister, clerk of court, notary, judge or officiant. You may only get to speak to them on the day of your wedding. You may not even know the content of the ceremony!

Is it is essential that you and your fiancé feel totally satisfied and comfortable with the person who will play such a vital part in your ceremony?.

If you pre-book me as your English Celebrant for your destination wedding, then all worries and concerns about ceremony content, will be eliminated.

You can be involved as much or as little as you like when it comes to making choices and decisions about your ceremony content and the wording used. Each couple will be seeking a different experience when it comes to ceremony content. Whether you are seeking a celebrant to tell your love story or talk at length about romance and love, or the art of a good marriage.

Your wedding ceremony is the sole reason everyone has come together.

Planning the reception can be very exciting but finding the right wedding celebrant will make the most important part of the wedding, your ceremony, all the more special, memorable and sincere.

By choosing GLENDA PROCTER  to be your overseas celebrant, you will have total peace of mind. She will greet you when you arrive at your destination, offering a familiar and friendly face to support you on your wedding day.

WEDDING QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

As you start to plan your special DESTINATION WEDDING day ceremony, you will no doubt have many questions. My answers will give you a lot more information and details to support you in your planning.

Will the ceremony you conduct be legally binding?
Yes in the USA.
Not in the UK or rest of the world.
Where do we get legally married?
The choice is yours. Either marry before leaving for your destination wedding or when arriving at the destination.( more details below.)
If you are a British citizen you can get legally married and obtain a British marriage license in a UK registration office prior to traveling to your destination.
OR
You can get legally married in your destination location in a brief service prior to my conducting your celebratory ceremony.
How long is the usual UK registration or overseas service?
It is usually all over in 15 minutes.
How long is a ceremony conducted by you as an independent celebrant?
My ceremonies are personal and bespoke for every couple. Couples may include any number of extras and additions to their ceremony.Therefore the ceremonies I help you create can be as long as you want!
Who makes the marriage application and deals with the legal paperwork?        
You are responsible for obtaining all the necessary documents and fulfilling the requirements of marriage in your country of residence or destination.
What are the benefits of having a British Marriage License?
This is for you to decide! Complications of authenticity could arise in the future if you have a foreign marriage license. Couples sometimes have regrets.
How do I find out the legal requirements of the county in which I want to marry?
Start with a google search! Or seek the guidance of the destination venue wedding planner, they may well have guidelines to offer you.
How long will it take me to sort the necessary paperwork to marry overseas?
Each country has its own laws and requirements, so check these thoroughly.
Do I have to visit the British Embassy when I get to my destination?
Check local laws and regulations.
Do I have to be resident in the destination country I am planning to marry in, prior to marrying legally?
Once again it is your responsibility to check the regulations and rules that are applicable to the country of destination and your own circumstances.
Will you work with my wedding planner?
I will make contact with your wedding planner whether they are your own independent wedding planner or the planner from a hotel or venue. Liaising and communication between what they do for you and my role in the actual delivery of your ceremony will be a vital part of the ‘flow’ of your day.
Do I need a Wedding Planner?
This is very much a personal choice. A wedding planner will handle everything—from hair and makeup to flowers, cake, and music. They have the local contacts and expertise to help tailor your wedding to your style and budget and arrange services for guests with or without children or with special needs.
