What is a sequel wedding? We ask Essex's Special Moments Celebrant
Q: We aren't sure how to plan for our wedding because of the pandemic. My friend suggested a sequel wedding, but what exactly does this mean?
Sequel weddings are becoming increasingly popular as a way to meet the needs of modern life. They're great for couples who want to mark this important life event under COVID-related restrictions or as a way of having a more personal ceremony after the formality required in a religious or short legal ceremony. Perhaps the wedding took place abroad and excluded friends and family?
After a formal legal ceremony, the following sequel wedding offers an opportunity to create a very personal expression of love that can acknowledge different beliefs and tastes in a way that a traditional ceremony can't. It can be held at any time and in any place – there are no restrictions. It can be as formal or relaxed as you like and can incorporate elements from varying faiths and ethnic traditions. It can also allow the acknowledgement of the blending of families and enables couples to fully express their personalities and values.
As a celebrant, I will work with you to create a unique and memorable wedding that's full of expression, shared stories and love.
