What does a Celebrant do?
A Celebrant can basically rip up the rule book and create a ceremony just for you – where and when you want it and with content that is totally unique and personal to you. HOW? Because a Celebrant is not performing the legal marriage, the rules do not need to apply. We are simply performing the good bits – the ceremonial bits (walk down aisle, exchange vows and rings and anything else you wish to add).
There is absolutely nothing standard about a Celebrant Ceremony. I do not use the same script for every couple – it is written from a blank page just for you. Your Ceremony will be full of your characters and personalities and the whole feel of the day will be decided by you – if you want full on tradition and formality or the complete opposite with a more fun and relaxed feel, this is what, together, we can create!
I can work in licenced venues as well as pretty much anywhere else you might like to hold your wedding ceremony – in the woods, on a boat, in a marquee, a community hall, museum, favourite restaurant to name a few!
I get to know you, face to face first and then over the months leading up to your wedding day we will have exchanged countless emails, texts or calls in the process of writing your ceremony script – which, by the way, you get to approve at every stage.
There are also other ways we can make your day special to you – for example if you have children they can be included within the ceremony, if you both practice different faiths I can blend elements of both into one ceremony, if you dream of your guests singing a pop song instead of a hymn, or if you have decided to add a symbolic action such as sand blending, lighting a unity candle or the like then we can totally add these too.
Seriously, if you want a WOW wedding – don’t see the ceremony as just the bit that has to be done before the party – let’s make it the party starter! I want you and your guests to remember your ceremony for years to come and for all the right reasons.
