I contacted William after a mad panic of a search on a Tuesday pm in May from South Africa. Our wedding in the UK had been postponed due to COVID-19 and, at first, we weren’t going to do anything on the actual ‘would be’ day, but then I realised that I would have felt worse if we hadn’t made an effort to do something, and luckily one of our guests had had the same thought and emailed us a review in a UK paper regarding ‘Handfasting’. William came back to me within seconds on email and asked me to contact him the next day via phone …. he didn’t know what he was letting himself in for!! With less than 48 hours notice we had a Zoom call and had hatched a plan to do a surprise ceremony in front of our guests! Luckily due to my friends and family loving any excuse to dress up (even without us asking), hats on, and bubbles out, we soon had a screen full of (not very technical) guests waiting patiently for us to unveil what actually was going on! William was amazing! So patient with all our guests, as he lead everyone through a very personal, and humorous at times ceremony, completely different to what our actual wedding will be like …..it was more than we could have ever wished for, and something we will treasure forever!We have had so many wonderful comments!William really did provide just the perfect of Ceremonies, and we are so blessed that we stumbled across him!He really did turn a situation that I was dreading into something that will stay with us and our guest forever! From South Africa, Canada, France and of course the UK, we were so happy that everyone was able to be included during these weird times we are currently in!The New Griersons x
