The importance of celebrant buddies

Celebrant buddy

Having celebrant buddies is really important for a number of reasons. Celebrant Susie Roberts takes us through just a few...

1.


There are times when you need someone to hold your hand as you walk through something you have never done before... like a shortening of time, a handfasting, an LGBTQIA+ ceremony, an overseas couple, or any of a number of legal and ceremony aspects that you may not have yet encountered.

2.


Sometimes you need a fellow celebrant who is very different from you to give you a new perspective on a ceremony. Have a diverse buddy group helps us grow as celebrants.

3.


When you are first starting out, the wisdom of an experienced and well respected celebrant is invaluable.

4.


Having someone give you an ego massage every now and again is always welcome, just remember to return the massage.

5.


Having a buddy is critical for those unforeseen times... fires, floods, accidents, etc where you need someone to fill in for you at a ceremony very quickly. A strong network of buddies allows you to reach out with confidence.

6.


Debriefing can be really beneficial, especially after a tough funeral, or a disastrous wedding, and your buddies have all been there and will support you, especially if coffee is involved.

Networking always grows our knowledge base, and a buddy group is the best place to start.

A buddy is the first there (hopefully with champagne) to celebrate your big wins and help you through some bumpy times.

A buddy group helps you through the isolation of being a solopreneur.

In a recent course I did on Alzheimers, one of the main factors in keeping it at bay was good social connections... and that has to be one of the best reasons!

And where do you find a good buddy? 

Here of course!

A Buddy, now thats an idea!

I work mainly St. Kilda and Bayside, Victoria- Marriages and Funerals and although I'm not a New Celebrant, been officiating since 2011 - I wouldn't mind having someone I can chat to sometimes, about ideas on creative ceremonies, a peer I suppose, someone I can refer to if I have a date clash or I'm not well or travelling and visa versa. I don't wish to impose or compete, just a sounding board and a coffee catch up now and then or a phone chat would be lovely. to see who I am you can check me out here or via my website on http://www.celebrantbayside.com.au
