It can feel daunting to plan your own event but, thankfully, there are a few simple planning tips that will create the experience and atmosphere you want.

As a couple, you will be the focal point all day. Your positioning, when saying your vows, during the dinner, or while you take your first dance will conduct the point of attention of your guests. Using an experienced Marriage Celebrant will relieve some of the pressure at the ceremony stage. A Professional Celebrant will support your individualism and the delivery of your vows while also providing you with a leader and a host to this part of the ceremony. Over 70% of weddings in Australia are now conducted by Celebrants. Weddings, in all of their forms, can be nerve-wracking experiences, and a Celebrant provides the much needed calm guiding voice and instruction to you and your partner at these pivotal moments.
It has been commented that having a Wedding Celebrant is like having an old family friend conduct the ceremony, and opting for a Celebrant can provide that kind of warmth, and the intimate atmosphere you would expect from such a ritual. Even in the most well-planned individual ceremonies, however, classic errors such as lost rings and unforeseen risks, such as sickness or accidents, can take place. A great celebrant with some good life experience and plenty of ceremony experience will know how to handle any situation.
So, when choosing your Celebrant, don’t just choose someone because “they work with my Mum”, or “I know someone doing the course and they have promised to give me a cheap price” or they live close by. Be more selective than that and you will reap the benefits on the day.
