Have you always dreamed of getting married in a garden,
or in a hot air balloon, or on a beach? Would you like to write your
own wedding vows? Did you know that if you have a civil wedding you
are not allowed any religious hymns or readings? Would you feel more
comfortable with a New Age ceremony? Is your spouse of a different race,
creed or culture? Over the fast twenty-five years people's lives and
personal beliefs have greatly changed and for many people the old forms
of words of our traditional wedding ceremonies are no longer appropriate.
Finding alternatives that are both dignified and personal is very difficult.
Whether you simply want to personalise your religious ceremony or have
a uniquely different civil wedding or you need to know about the ritual
requirements of other cultures, this complete guide gives you all the
information you need to arrange your own ceremony. It explains what
is legally necessary, offers forms of words, useful addresses and sources
of information as well as an anthology of readings.
