Covid-19 Alert

***Covid-19 Alert***


As you are aware, Covid-19 has affected almost everyone's plans for events and gatherings.


Some couples are choosing to postpone their ceremony until a later date, some are going ahead with the ceremony on a smaller scale and others find themselves in a position of needing to cancel entirely.


I will work with you to find the best option.


As of March 17, I am still performing marriage ceremonies and accepting new bookings for groups of 10 or less, but to protect myself and others, I am enforcing the following rules until such time as health recommendations are relaxed:

1. I must be a minimum of six feet from the couple

2. I will unfortunately not be greeting or congratulating anyone with handshakes or hugs, as much as it is against my nature.

3. Microphones will not be used

4. I will be sanitizing the pen used to sign the registration of marriage between each person signing.


This list may be altered without notice depending on risks and health recommendations at the time of the ceremony


Extreme times call for extreme measures, but I feel that the rules above are reasonable given the circumstances we find ourselves in.


Stay healthy!
