His goal in creating the wedding ceremony is to focus on the couple and their bond. This includes their relationship to each other as well as to their families, their friends and the world in general. Joshua does a wonderful elopement ceremony including personal elements. He also loves larger weddings where he can get to know the couple through personal meetings in order to work with them and craft the most meaningful ceremony possible.
His original ceremonies are personalized with elements that can come from tradition interpreted through a humanist lens or are completely original, created through a process of investigation into the history, feelings and thoughts of the couple. The tone of the ceremony is also bespoke, representing the atmosphere that feels most comfortable to the couple. It can be laid-back, formal, humorous, romantic or resonate with a combination of many things.
