Wedding Ceremonies

As a gay marriage celebrant, I’ve married lots of straight people (see And I’ll continue to do so.

If you’re a member of the LGBTI community, I’d very much like to marry you (as a celebrant!). And now, at last, I’m busy marrying same sex couples. In fact, I’m about to book my 50th LGBTI wedding! Believe me when I say that nothing makes me happier than working with LGBTI couples to make their dream wedding day come true. We’ve fought hard for this and now we can make it happen!

One of the things I know from the LGBTI couples I’ve worked with is that they ask what they should be doing, in planning for their special day, as they admit to having little idea about weddings or what’s involved. That’s hardly surprising, given that we’ve been raised to believe that getting married was not likely to be part of our future.

As someone who’s planning his own gay wedding and has formally studied gay and lesbian weddings, I know the latest trends in gay and lesbian weddings. I have a raft of different rituals and traditions that LGBTI couples may want to use on their wedding day, and others that they may wish to ignore – things that make our weddings as different from heteronormative, or straight, weddings as you’d like them to be.

Of course, if you’d prefer to follow the traditional path and plan a conventional wedding, then I’d be delighted to help you do that, too.

So, let’s catch up for a chat about your plans – and let me suggest some options for you.

Your ceremony can be whatever you want it to be:

  • something very similar to a traditional straight ceremony
  • something more contemporary and non-heteronormative
  • flamboyant and camp (or not)
  • leather–themed
  • bear style
  • or a mix of the above.

You decide!
