About this pro

Hello. My name is Arwen Freer, and I am an ordained minister who would love to be the officiant for your wedding, vow renewal or commitment ceremony. I'm one of only 2 officiants in Jacksonville to win The Best of The Knot in 2016, and I won WeddingWire's Couple's Choice Award for 2017. I have a Christian background, but I am ordained through an interfaith ministry and work with couples from every faith, including the non-religious. There is never any discrimination, regardless of your faith, orientation, or life choices. I am based in Jacksonville, FL, but willing to travel. I can perform weddings in FL, GA, and several other states. I absolutely love every minute of working with couples to create their perfect ceremony. I hope I will have the opportunity to show you why couples love working with me too. Your first consultation by phone is always free and with no obligation, so head on over to my website to see my full list of packages and prices, and then click the contact page to book your consultation. White wedding with lots of scriptures? I’m all about it! Off-beat or non-religious with quotes from your favorite fandom? I speak geek, and can even sneak it into traditional-looking ceremonies! Alternative, tattoos, piercings, and leather? I’ve got you covered too! Whether your wedding will be traditional, off-beat, alternative, themed, or even costumed, your style is perfect and I would love to custom craft a ceremony to match your vision. Your marriage is between the two of you, and you deserve a ceremony that celebrates your unique bond, honoring your own beliefs.

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      My full list of package options and prices can be found at my website.
    • How did you get started doing this type of work?
      As a newlywed myself, I understand just how difficult it can be to create a ceremony that really speaks to your own unique beliefs, without ruffling the feathers of the varied assortment of guests who will be attending. I also know how frustrating it can be to want to honor your faith, without using the same script as every other couple you know. Whether you're looking for a very traditional ceremony, or need someone with tasteful creativity to spice up your vows, I'm here to help you design a service that speaks to your heart on your special day. I also love a bit of fun, so if you are planning a themed wedding, I would be delighted to dress the part and play along.
    • What types of customers have you worked with?
      While most of the bookings I've had so far are traditional Christian weddings, I'm not limited to them. I can perform many types of ceremonies, such as hand fasting, oathing stones, collaring, honey, red-yarn, bread&salt, blanket, wine, truce bell etc. I love to learn about different kinds of ceremonies, so I'’m always adding to my knowledge. If you have a type of ceremony I haven’t heard of, wonderful! I will learn all I can and provide a polished ceremony to meet your needs.
    Coverage Area for Arwen Freer is about 50+ miles of Jacksonville, FL.
