Privacy & Cookie Policy

The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) requires all businesses who collect and use personal information, to do so in a manner that protects your privacy and rights.  The GDPR covers the processing of all personal data.  I will treat your data with the utmost care and will only use or share it for the purposes agreed with you in advance.

Any personal or family details discussed are purely for the purposes of writing your ceremony, which you will see and approve once full payment has been received.  I will not disclose any of these details to anyone who is not involved or connected to your ceremony or has not been invited as your guest unless I have your written consent.  All notes that are taken are shredded after use.  Scripts are retained on secure computer files. 

Printed scripts are destroyed after use, except for the copy given to you after the ceremony.

All personally identifiable data will be destroyed after six years of your ceremony taking place.​

I will not give your details to any third party, except at your request, or where required to do so by law under duress of any legal proceeding or investigation.

What personal data I collect and why I collect it


When visitors leave comments on the site this data is collected along with the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


I may process information you provide in any enquiry submitted to me regarding the provision of services. The enquiry data may be processed for the purposes of offering, marketing and selling services to you. The legal basis for this processing this data is to create a contract between you and me for the provision of services.

During our conversations I will keep notes about you and your wishes for your ceremony. These notes are only available to myself and kept only for the provision of services to you.


I may process transaction information, including purchases of services, that you enter into with me. This data may include your contact details and the transaction details. The legal basis for this processing is to provide services under a contract that we enter into.


All data I may process personal data identified in this policy, where necessary for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims. The legal basis for this processing is to protect my legal rights, your legal rights and the legal rights of others.


If you leave a comment on my site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, a temporary cookie will be set to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

I use Google Analytics to monitor site use to enable me to create a better user experience.


Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.



I may process data about your use of the website and services. The usage data may include your IP address, location, browser type and version, operating system, referral source, time spent on site, page views and website navigation behaviours. The source of the usage data is Google Analytics. This usage data may be processed for the purposes of analysing the effectiveness of the website. The legal basis for this processing is solely to monitor and improve the website.


Who I share your data with

I may disclose your personal data to professional advisers if it is necessary in order to obtain or maintain insurance coverage, manage risks, receive professional advice, or the establishment or defense of legal claims.

Personal data held in our website database or email will be stored on the servers of our hosting services providers. I may disclose your personal data where necessary for compliance with a legal obligation or in order to protect your interests or the interests of another person. Google Analytics data is available to Google, myself and website administrators.


How long I retain your data

Your data will be retained for the maximum period necessary for me to provide my services, monitor my website activity and comply with tax and banking regulations. If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so I can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
