    Words are trains.. Read more..

    If you value the actual ceremony and hope it will live on in the hearts and minds of others too, then pay close attention to the information you provide us with. The most pleasurable and creative aspect of our service is in the transformation of your words into beautifully flowing prose, which will accurately and touchingly reflect your feelings for one another.

    We have become adept at ascertaining the style and manner in which we should formulate ceremonies to reflect your wishes. We are never sugary and over romantic but represent genuine sentiments, expressed as you would wish them to be…. and judging by recent feedback, most couples feel that this makes all the difference to the experience of being joined together symbolically forever. After all your intention to marry will affect the rest of your lives and with this in mind, we will leave you with an inspirational thought, simply but powerfully expressed by one of the wisest men ever to have lived…Mahatma Gandhi.

    Keep your thoughts positive,
    because your thoughts become your words.
    Keep your words positive,
    because your words become your behaviours.
    Keep your behaviours positive,
    because your behaviours become your habits.
    Keep your habits positive,
    because your habits become your values.
    Keep your values positive,
    because your values become your destiny.
