TheCeremony A Civil Ceremony is a statement of commitment of your new life together, creating your own ideas and setting your own expectations for each other – a ceremony as unique and individual as you are. Your ceremony will be conducted by an authorised Registrar/ Assistant Registrar who all hold the Certificate of Proficiency in the Law and Practice of Registration. The team are highly trained with a wealth of experience and expertise in conducting civil ceremonies. From the minute you book your ceremony we will guide you through the full process leading to the day itself ensuring that you can have your day, your way. A member of staff will be assigned to your ceremony and will contact you as a means of introduction and to discuss your arrangements. We offer a pre-wedding meeting which allows couples and the Registrar/ Assistant Registrar to build up a relationship,plan your ceremony and discuss arrangements for the day itself. Music is available at our Registration Offices or alternatively you can provide your own music. There are certain declarations that you must make (for Civil Marriages only), but you may wish to add your own choice of words to these. You may also wish to involve family or friends in your ceremony by having them read poetry or readings for you. EastAyrshire 5
