‘We needed help creating a bespoke piece of writing that explained how much we mean to one another, guidance to put our hearts down on paper, making sure we didn’t miss anything vital. We got all of that and more.’ Luke + Ewan
Original readings for any setting
A bespoke reading, written with your words or those of family and friends, on any suitable topic. Would complement any ceremony or setting: church, Registry office or venue wedding; christening or naming, vow renewal, funeral or memorial. Whether thoughtful, touching or humorous – the right reading brings a ceremony to life.
It’s more than ‘just’ about the performance on the day: gathering people’s words and writing with them encourages a deeper level of engagement beforehand too.
350+ testimonials speak of the power bespoke writing has not only to captivate an entire audience but leaving a lasting impression long after the event.
Let’s encapsulate your relationship and treat your wedding guests to an entertaining surprise with a ‘his and hers’ pair of readings with friends as contributors.
Perhaps we might embrace a family dynamic with a multi-generational approach, affectionately capturing the personality of a much loved child in honour of their christening.
Or the insight of family and friends could come into its own within a memorial tribute to a loved one, full of reminiscences and warmth.
My reading fees vary depending on length and how complex they are to create e.g shorter naming reading (£80) or mirror image wedding pair (£160).
Rather than choosing from an already familiar selection, available to all, a bespoke reading offers a special opportunity to create writing with real personal resonance.
