What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Pricing depends on the circumstances of the couple and how far I need to travel to get to their chosen location. I will work with you.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Most information in my field is self-sought, and I do a lot of reading on various traditions, faiths, beliefs and practices. Understanding the cultural specifics help me do a better job. There is always more to learn.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
At one point a friend, who could not find someone appropriate to do a nontraditional ceremony, was complaining about both availability of Wedding Officiants and fees. In offered to do this for her, and in the following conversation realized that there was a need for the kind of services I provide.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Multi-cultural and inter-faith couples who, for some reason or other, can not have the kind of wedding their culture or faith expect. I offer ceremonies that compromise between the traditions.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
Again, there are so many. Each is special in its own way, and it is impossible to choose.
A recent commitment ceremony for the sweetest same-sex couple who had been together (and legally "married" for some time) for more than a decade, springs to mind. There was a lot of happiness and laughter at that wedding.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Look for people who are willing to work with you. Please bear in mind that you get what you pay for.
I provide this service inexpensively because I understand that costs can be an issue, and because I wish to serve.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
It takes care, and quite a bit of work, to make sure that the ceremony is the way that the couple desires - but it is worth it.
