QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS


question has been submitted to Easy Weddings for review.

Something went wrong, please try again soon.

We'd like to write our own vows, but don't really know where to start. Is this something you can help us with?

Absolutely! I've got your back on this one. I can provide whatever level of support you need to make this labour of love less 'labour' and more 'love'! 

To help get the creativity flowing, I provide lots of examples of vows to flick through. If you wish, you can cherry-pick your favourite bits. 

I also give my couples a simple set of 'vow-writing' questions, with a suggestion that you find a quiet corner to yourself, and start jotting down any random thoughts that pop into your head for each question. Before you know it, you'll have an amazing little collection (or perhaps a big collection!) of personal, meaningful material, with some real gems that will make your vows a knock-out!

From there, you can either have a go at turning all your ideas into vows, or - if that feels a bit daunting - simply hand it all over to me, and I'll weave your own words into beautiful, flowing vows that marry well (forgive the pun) with the length and tone of your partner's vows.

And hey, don't put too much pressure on yourself - this isn't an exam to be passed. However we get there, as long as your vows express what you really want to say to your partner in this important moment, that's what counts.

 

Do we need to do a rehearsal? Our attendants won't all be in town until just before the wedding.

First up, let me say - whatever your situation, we will make it work seamlessly. I'll 'lead you by the hand' through your whole ceremony.

Of course, getting the gang together for a rehearsal beforehand is the optimal way to go, as it will give you a much better sense of how it will look and feel on the day. It will allow you to make the best choices for positioning (the 'stagecraft', if you like) and enable your team to practice, adding an extra level of 'polish' - something you'll particularly appreciate if you have videography on your big day.

If you just can't bring all of your wedding party together in the lead up to the ceremony, we'll simply work with what (or who!) we've got. I will fully brief you on all the options, and we can practice your key parts, then I will guide you all through everything on the day.

If you're getting married outdoors. I definitely recommend visiting your ceremony spot at the same time of day (and close to your wedding date) if you can manage it. This will give you the best indication of where the sun is going to be, so you can avoid having the sun beaming directly into the faces of either the wedding party or your guests. You can also make sure your set up won't place the wedding party in dappled light (part sun, part shade) - that wreaks havoc with photos! And the visit will also let you know if you need to consider other creature comforts, like mossie repellent!

Can we play music through your system?

Absolutely! I can download your playlist on my mini tablet and control the music as I do the ceremony. Alternatively, we can pair your bluetooth device with my PA system (or plug it in via a cable, which I carry with me), or go old-school with a CD (if that’s how you love your music), and have an assistant cue the tracks. My PA system is rechargeable and fully portable, so we don’t need a power point.
