How I collect data

If you engage me to conduct a ceremony for you, I will collect data from your ceremony booking form and directly from you (either face-to-face, via email, via telephone or other private messaging service).

Sharing of personal data

Sometimes, it is necessary for me to share your data with venues in order to facilitate ceremonies or tours, including dinners. I will only share this data with your consent to do so. I will not share your data with anyone else unless I am required to do so by law.
