  • The cost of the Marriage License



Child-inclusive and Child-friendly Wedding Ceremonies

Exactly how a child is included in the ceremony will depend on that child's personality, age, relationship to bride, groom or both, and the other ceremony choices you have made. Some children may want to be very involved. Others may not. I work carefully and mindfully with you to ensure that your child/ren is included to the extent with which they are comfortable and enriched. But most of all, a child-inclusive wedding is also a child-friendly wedding, one where children are welcome and made to feel so, whether or not they are included in the ceremony.
