Do you officiate same sex weddings?

Absoloutely, and I am delighted to do so.

Does our religion or faith matter?

No that doesn't matter at all!  I'm happy to marry anyone, of any religion, faith or belief group.  I will work to include any elements you want to include in your ceremony.  So, if you would like to add a cultural or religious tradition into your ceremony, you can, as long as you support the Fulcrum belief of Equality, Common Purpose, Tolerance and Compassion.
