Moveable Ceremonies & Guidelines

A ‘Moveable Ceremony’ is one that should be re-written and/or personalised every time. These are ceremonies where any recipients of awards, titles, etc, will (and should) know in advance that they are to be recognised, and they should be part of the preparations and planning. While there are basic ‘template’ ceremonies which can be used, the ceremonies are long and complicated, with a number of people and variables involved, thus even these should be personalised and reprinted if possible, rather than trying to use them as-is. Some may wish to have completely original, customised ceremonies instead – a list of essential requirements for a ceremony is thus provided as well. It is expected that the Crown, the Court Herald, the Candidate/Recipient/Crown Prince/ss, Crux Herald and/or Bombarde Herald will work together to create a suitable ceremony. Whilst it is not essential that Crux and Bombarde are involved, it is suggested that they are at least consulted, to ensure that all requirements of the ceremony are met, and it is requested that Bombarde Herald be provided with a copy of each personalised/customised ceremony for the records of the College of Heralds and for the history of the Kingdom.
