Of course, anyone can ask anyone else to marry them at any time, but if you’re a woman who’s a sucker for tradition or looking for a great excuse to go down on one knee, Leap Year Day – this Monday – is your opportunity. Here’s a video I made about doing just that:
If you do propose, PLEASE get in touch and let me know – I love a good proposal story! And if you want to start arranging your wedding ceremony, you know where to come to for a celebrant of course… 😉
Here are the words to that video, in case your sound was down:
Now I know we’re pretty modern here –
As clued up types it’s very clear
We won’t be dictated to by convention
That said, I thought I might just mention
The 29th – this Monday in fact
Traditionally is the time to act
If, as a woman, you’d like to be married
But your other half has… well… tarried
In popping the question, it’s now YOUR time
So maybe take them out to dine
Or watch a film or have a dance
Create the moment; grab your chance
Why not go down on one knee
And ask them ‘will you marry me?’
They’ll say yes, of course, then you’ll be drinking
Fizzy wine and get to thinking
About the wedding – and after THIS night
A boring service just wouldn’t seem right.
We’ve all sat through ceremonies that, frankly, were rotten
A ‘one-size-fits-all’ – so easily forgotten.
No. What YOU need is a proper celebration
Crafted with love and careful consideration.
Tell me all about you, what you believe and what you’re into
Share your love story and I will begin to
Weave my magic and get writing
A ceremony that’ll have them fighting
Back tears of joy – it is so YOU!
It captures you both (and it’s funny too).
Everyone there will treasure forever
The vows you exchanged and those words, and they’ll never
Again settle for anything less
Than a celebrant-led wedding (I have to confess
That my work will be done if everyone there
When planning a ceremony chose to call Claire).
And if you do choose to call me, it’s 07929 764162 xx
