ASK A CELEBRANT BLOG
Then as we begin to talk, it turns out that really what a couple don’t want is a ceremony or language that isn’t relevant to them.
They don’t want something that will make them feel awkward or embarrassed in being the centre of attention. Often they don’t realise that apart from the mandatory legal inclusions in a ceremony, there is no set way of doing things. Rather, with the guidance of an experienced, caring celebrant, there is freedom of choice to create a ceremony that makes them feel comfortable.
So whether your ceremony lasts for 10, 20 or 30 minutes, if it is about you and your story - then it can’t help but be the highlight of your wedding day – or as one of the first couples I married wrote:
“You made us realise that the ceremony was not just something that we “had to have” before our party began, but something that we “could have” and remember all our lives”
It was in 2006 that I first contemplated becoming a civil celebrant. That year it seemed as though every one I knew was either getting married, having children, or losing a loved one. I’d never been to so many weddings in one year and apart from the pleasure of sharing the celebrations, I found myself beginning to compare the occasions.
