David has officiated at hundreds of wedding receptions of different faiths over more than 17 years, and has more recently assisted before and after civil wedding ceremonies or civil partnership ceremonies at hotels or other venues.
David will of course greet the Bride and Bridegroom on their arrival at their reception from traditional church weddings.
Prior to the wedding day David will liaise with Bride and Bridegroom, to discuss the order of the day and assist them with protocol for the occasion, including any special requests and requirements.
On the big day David will be at the venue at least an hour prior to the arrival of Bride and Bridegroom, or if a civil ceremony an hour prior to the ceremony commencing, where David will make sure the guests are seated before discreetly introducing the Bride and her party to the ceremony. At this point the doors are closed and any latecomers may be quietly let in when the opportunity arises.
