Make It Unique: Personalise Your Wedding Ceremony With A Celebrant
It’s time to chat about one of my favourite things in the world – wedding ceremonies! Where you officially tie the knot with your one and only! But, here’s the thing, your wedding ceremony doesn’t have to be a cookie-cutter affair. In fact, your ceremony should be as bespoke as the most intricate and ornate of wedding cakes. Unlike registrar ceremonies which are all the same, choosing a wedding celebrant means you can add all of the sparkle and personality you desire. Resulting in a one of a kind ceremony, that is joyfully rich in sentiment and beautifully unique to you.
In this blog post, I’ll take you through some of my favourite ways to personalise your ceremony and give you some ideas ready for when you start to plan your big day.
Personalise those vows
Let’s start by talking about vows. The most captivating part of any ceremony! Writing your own vows is such a special way to make your wedding ceremony personal and unique. You don’t have to be a literary Shakespeare to write beautiful vows either. With your celebrant’s help, together you can craft the sweetest, most heartfelt words that will make your partner’s heart flutter.
Think about including a memory (funny ones are always a hit!) and promises that you know are something your partner would love you to keep. Almost all celebrants will be willing to help you with your vows, so don’t be afraid to ask. The deeper you dig, the more emotional your vows will be which really helps to show your partner, just how much they truly mean to you!
Add some symbolism
Including unity rituals or symbolic elements is a really visual way to make your ceremony more personal and special. Whether you choose to light a unity candle, mix sand, or plant a tree, these rituals symbolise the bond between you and your partner. It’s a moment that you’ll remember forever, and it’s a beautiful way to add a little extra romance to your wedding ceremony.
With a celebrant’s help, you even can create completely bespoke rituals that are totally unique to you and your partner. Fancy shaking up a cocktail? Having guests tie decorations to a Christmas wreath (great for a festive wedding!)? Or want to design your own bespoke handfasting ribbons? With a bit of creativity, you can come up with something that reflects your love story, style, and personalities. You can even include family members, children or friends to make it extra special! Either way, unity rituals are a magical way to make one of a kind moments in your ceremony that you’ll treasure forever.
Celebrate your cultures!
Adding cultural or religious elements to your wedding ceremony is a lovely way to make it even more personal. From traditional dances to prayers or special clothing, including these elements honours your heritage and celebrates your love. Your wedding celebrant can help you incorporate elements from both of your worlds to make a ceremony that is rich in culture and uniquely yours! There are no rules when it comes to a celebrant ceremony, so the more nods to your heritage the merrier!
Turn up the tunes
Music can evoke powerful emotions and set the tone for your ceremony. Your wedding ceremony should be filled with tunes that make your heart sing…or want to have a mid-aisle walk boogie to! Instead of choosing traditional wedding music, consider selecting songs that have special meaning to you and your partner. Find the perfect song that tells your story, reflects your vibe, and sets the mood you want for the day.
Decorate the space
Get ready to make your wedding ceremony seriously stunning! From lush blooms to twinkling fairy lights, incorporating personal touches that reflect your style can make your ceremony space feel so much more you. Think about adding meaningful objects or choosing colours that evoke a special feeling. It’s a fun way to make your ceremony space totally unique and personalised. And remember, it’s your day, so don’t be afraid to pick colours and decor that genuinely make you happy, rather than what Instagram says you should have! It will really lift your mood and make you feel more relaxed in your ceremony space too.
Throw away the rule book
Remember having a celebrant means there are no rules! Changing the ceremony structure can add some serious fun and joy! From the groom walking down the aisle to having loved ones perform readings, there are so many ways to personalise the structure of your ceremony. You could even add a surprise element or a fun activity for your guests. The possibilities are endless, so get creative and make your wedding ceremony a truly unforgettable experience!
