Getting married? Congratulations! There’s a lot to do to prepare for the big day. So much so, in fact, that the most important part of the day - the reason for and focal point of the day - the Ceremony, is often left until the end and overwhelmed couples end up going with cookie-cutter ceremonies from their JP or Minister just to save time, or worse, end up spending vast amounts of money to have a Celebrant put it together for them. Your Wedding Ceremony does not have to be like everyone else’s, and you don’t have to spend an arm and a leg to have someone else create it for you. Putting a ceremony together that reflects your own personalities and values can be easy, not to mention fun! This class gives couples the tools and the step-by-step guidance to create their own unique, inspiring, and unforgettable Marriage Ceremony! http://www.blueskyweddingservices.com/index.html
