What if you could say the words you want to say, in the place you want to be, with the people you want to be with? What if there were no rules or regulations to follow and your day could simply reflect the two of you and your love for each other?


I Do With You® create bespoke wedding ceremonies that offer exactly this. They create ceremonies tailor made to the desires and dreams of every couple they meet with. It’s their aim to capture your wishes and hopes as you celebrate your love with those who matter most to you.


What is a celebrant led wedding?


As things currently stand, to become legally married in England you EITHER need to be married by a minister of religion in their church OR have a Registrar conduct your ceremony either at the Registrars Office or at a Licensed Venue.


A church wedding is what it is! If you have a connection to a church and want what they offer then they will marry you.


If you wish to be married by a Registrar, you have 3 options:


  1. A basic ‘You Plus Two Ceremony’ package at the Registrar’s Office – this includes yourselves as the couple and two witnesses. The cost of the ceremony will be £46 (at least that’s the cost right now for Lincolnshire).


  1. At a ceremony room at the Registrar’s office, which in Lincolnshire can accommodate between 10 and 80 people, depending on numbers and when you’d like to get married - with costs starting at £150 and going up to £1,010.


  1. Inviting a Registrar to a Licensed Venue (like Crown Hall Farm) where they conduct a ceremony – which on a Friday or Saturday is currently £583.00 plus the cost of venue hire.


I Do With You® offer another way - the Celebrant-led ceremony.


Let’s name the obvious though - celebrant-led does not include the legally binding element of marriage BUT precisely because of that it allows every ceremony to be endlessly creative and tailored to each couple’s specific wishes and what’s more is that you can have a Celebrant led ceremony anywhere – such as Crown Hall Farm.


How does a celebrant-led ceremony at Crown Hall Farm work?


The team at Crown Hall Farm will welcome you to come and have a look around their venue. They’ll talk you through the packages they offer and the options available to you. You’ll agree your preferred date with them and start to plan your day.


Your marriage does need to be officially registered at your local Register's Office where you book an appointment to go and sign a declaration and say contractual words with your two witnesses.


Registering your marriage can be done at any point either before or after the ceremony depending on your preference. For further details visit the Lincolnshire County Council’s wedding page here - https://www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/ceremonies/book-marriage-civil-partnership-ceremony 


I Do With You® then conduct the ceremony as part of your day so that you can celebrate as you wish.

How do we plan the ceremony?


You will have an initial meeting with I Do With You®, ideally at your home, it’s what we call our ‘no obligation consultation’, from there you decide if you wish to proceed. We then meet with you as many times as is needed to create your moment.


What’s involved in an I Do With You® ceremony?


As each ceremony is unique it’s entirely up to you what’s included in the ceremony. There can be vows, promises and an exchange of rings, all of which reflect your ideas, values and beliefs. Maybe you’d like to tell the story of how you met and the journey you've both been on for you to now be celebrating your love for each other surrounded by family and friends. At I Do With You® we have a creative writer so these elements are crafted to your specific details and wishes.


But then there might be other personalised details that you'd like to include such as hand fasting, unity candle or sand, crystals or something totally unique to yourselves. I Do With You® put these details together with you and make it clear how we will choreograph the day so you can enjoy the moment.


I Do With You® also offer Renewal of Vows, which works in exactly the same way as a wedding ceremony but without the need to register the wedding.

How much does an I Do With You® ceremony cost?


You’ll agree a price with Crown Hall Farm for the venue hire and all that they provide. You’ll also choose one of the packages that I Do With You® offer. These range in price from £345 to £595 depending on the type of ceremony and the elements you’d like to be included. Our prices are agreed up front, there are no hidden costs and no surprise extras!


Your wedding day is likely to be one of your greatest moments of celebration and so at I Do With You® we want to do all that we can to make your dream into a reality and create a great moment that will remain etched in your memory forever! For all of the right reasons!
