We offer a range of wedding writing services that you can combine in any way you choose.

CUSTOMISED WEDDING VOWS

The traditional vows can sound a bit old-fashioned. And maybe you want to say a little more than just “For better, for worse, for richer, for poorer…” Maybe you really want to express your love for your partner while you’re promising to love them forever.

Includes:

  • Telephonic consultation with both partners to determine what they would like included in their vows.
  • One set of corrections to the vows from each partner.

Pricing:

  • R1 000 per partner

WEDDING SPEECHES

Most of us haven’t made a speech since school, and we’ve all sat through those speeches at weddings: the ones that don’t make sense, or ramble, or use inappropriate humour, or at worst, all three! We’ll write a great 600-word speech for any of the wedding party who have been tasked to speak, and we can even write a script of linkages, jokes and anecdotes for the Master of Ceremonies.

Includes:

  • Telephonic consultation with the person making the speech to discuss its content and get a sense of the way they speak.
  • One set of corrections from each speaker.

Pricing:

  • R1 800 per speech
  • R2 400 for all the links, quips and comments for the Master of Ceremonies.

PROGRAMME WRITING

Let us put together the leaflet your guests will use at the ceremony. We can source a quote or two, or perhaps a poem or some beautiful prose that reflects on what love is all about, and we can proofread it for you before you send it to the printers and make sure everything is shipshape.

Includes:

  • One set of corrections from each partner on the programme compilation.

Pricing:

  • R750 to source quotes and put programme together
  • R75 per page proofread

EXPERT REVIEWS

If you’d prefer to write your own speeches and vows, we will be happy to review them for you, and suggest any changes or improvements to structure. We’ll be kind, don’t worry!

Pricing:

  • R650 for both sets of vows, or per speech reviewed
