How to do Mutah?

Salaam Alaikum.

How do I do mutah if a Maulana isn’t reciting it? Can it be done by an average individual? What is supposed to be done?

Chapter twenty-seven » The marriage contract – Islamic Laws – The Official Website of the Office of His Eminence Al-Sayyid Ali Al-Husseini Al-Sistani
Ruling 2382. To conclude a marriage contract, whether that be for a permanent marriage or for a temporary one, a formula (ṣīghah) must be said; the mere consent of the man and the woman is not sufficient, nor is writing it, based on obligatory precaution (al-iḥtiyāṭ al-wājib).
