- Wedding: November 2012
My fiancee and I are eloping in Paris, and having a symbolic wedding ceremony (so the paperwork is done here first)this November. We are on a budget and trying to find an English speaking celebrant (or even a professor or someone well spoken, spiritual, and well read), for a short (20 minutes) secular ceremony on a weekday morning.
I checked with celebrantsinfrance.com and they START at 800 Euros (so about a grand) for a 20 minute scripted ceremony. This seems a little insane to me! Does anyone have ideas or recommendations for an affordable person to guide our ceremony? It doesn’t have to be an “official” officiant or celebrant (not that that exists for a symbolic ceremony), just someone with good energy who speaks well.
We are planning the day ourselves and I wondered if anyone has suggestions for hair & make up, photographer (other than one and only.. not my style at all), flowers, or videographer?
I’d LOVE any suggestions!!
