How To Make the Most of Your Wedding Celebrant
Choosing a wedding celebrant is possibly the best booking you’ll make for your wedding day! Not only does it mean you will have the most beautifully personalised and memorable ceremony, but also, you gain an extra friend for advice and support throughout your entire wedding planning journey.
You would be astounded by the wealth of knowledge and skills a wedding celebrant possesses. From our inexhaustible imaginations to our masterful creative writing skills, there is so much we can help you with beyond writing your script!
So, to help you make the most of your wedding celebrant, I’ve popped together this helpful guide to make sure you do just that.
1. Writing your Vows
For many couples writing their own vows can be overwhelming. Where to start? How to structure it? How do I get the right balance of humour and emotion? Call upon your celebrant and they will give you all of the advice you need to help you on your way.
Some celebrants even offer a vow writing service, or if they don’t, just ask! I can guarantee they would be more than happy to write them for you. By simply taking your words and input, your celebrant will conjure an eloquent set of vows, that sound just like you.
2. Master of Ceremonies
If you want to ensure a stress-free running of the day but don’t want to seek out yet another supplier, then why not ask your celebrant if they wouldn’t mind being your master of ceremonies?
The role of an MC is to host the day, guide your guests to where they need to be, and generally ensure the day runs as smoothly as the silkiest of milk chocolates.
Again, a lot of celebrants do actually offer this service for an additional price, which they will have listed on their website, but if in doubt, just shout!
Most wedding celebrants would be delighted to take on the role just so they can help to make your day even more magical. You can also be certain they will give it their all and sprinkle all of their celebrant sparkles into being the best MC you could ever have asked for.
Lots of couples choose to involve family members in their ceremony by having them do a reading. However, if you are finding it hard to find the perfect words, just ask your celebrant for their advice.
Depending on the mood of the ceremony and the family member who will be doing the reading, it’s certain that your wedding celebrant will have a whole host of suggestions to ensure your reading slots neatly into your ceremony.
4. Bespoke Readings
If nothing really tickles your pickle during the grand google search for a reading, then asking your celebrant to write a bespoke one might be the answer.
From poems to short stories, a wedding celebrant can create a reading that is really personal and exactly what you want! Just like your ceremony script!
A tummy full of butterflies is quite the norm on your wedding day, but it’s always a good idea to stamp out a few flutters that don’t need to be there.
Your celebrant will always be delighted to help you rehearse anything you don’t feel comfortable with in your ceremony. Whether that be reading your vows out to them, or practising a reading or symbolic element.
Lots of wedding celebrants will actually rehearse the entire ceremony with you at the venue as an additional service. However, if this isn’t something you want, there is so much you can still rehearse at a coffee shop or over Zoom!
Why Choose a Celebrant?
Choosing a celebrant gives you so much freedom and support and is clearly the best and most personal service you will experience from any of your suppliers.
Ultimately our job is to guide you through the ceremony process in a way that is fun and relaxing. The last thing we want is for you to be stressed about anything related to your ceremony and will always go above and beyond to help you in any way we can.
