We can also combine the symbolic ceremony with an appointed Civil Registrar. This provides the necessary legalities of a marriage, alongside the richness, flexibility and romance which a symbolic ceremony offers, thus allowing for a much more personal ceremony to be created.
Working in the Algarve, Portugal, as Celebrants we have conducted many symbolic Ceremonies. The joy of this style of ceremony is that it should reflect you as a couple. It can be as creative, stylish, elegant, or as simple as you wish. A bespoke Ceremony tailored to you, which can include should you wish, your love story to date.
As professional Celebrants, we help and advise you, and build your ceremony, which together with your vows, marriage promises and exchange of rings, can also include readings, poetry, music, and unity joining rituals such as sand blending, candle lighting, hand binding, rose giving, wine sharing, love letter locked box etc.
When required we liaise with translators so that your ceremony on the day can be carried out not just in English, but in other languages too! Recent examples are Lithuanian, Russian, Portuguese, Dutch, Norwegian and French. We are of course happy working alongside your chosen wedding planner; just ask if you would like our recommendations!
