Expert Advice

As a wedding professional, Kathryn Eternal Flame Ceremonies offers expert advice to help couples plan their perfect day. Ask a question or read their expert advice.


How does a celebrant work?

What is the process and what should we expect from a Celebrant when choosing the right one.

Hi there and congratulations!  Number one expectation?  That you won't have to even WORRY about the process - that is all explained and taken care of for you by your celebrant.  And chemistry, chemistry and did I say, chemistry?  Above all, be 100% sure you want this person to have the responsibility of reflecting YOUR wishes and YOUR expectations.  It is, after all, YOUR ceremony! Good luck in your search! Kathryn Eternal Flame Ceremonies - Five-star celebrant for five years in a row and in the top 35 in Melbourne.

How can I encourage my partner to write their vows?

I've written mine and I'm still waiting to find out about theirs- is there anything I can do without nagging? The wedding is only two weeks away

Many people are a little stumped writing their own vows.  I always supply my couples with suggestions and help with vows.  Sometimes it is just a matter of a push in the right direction!  Ask your celebrant to help.  If he was my client, I would say to focus on the future and how you see yourselves - what you really want to promise to do.  Also, some of the best vows can be funny!  Sometimes that suits a person better - everyone is different.  Don't try to force him down the sentimental path, if that is not who he is.  Good luck!  All will be well.  :)

When meeting with a celebrant am I supposed to know what readings I want already?

or do they usually offer suggestions and examples at the meeting? Is there anything else my partner and I should decide on first?

Honey, any Celebrant worth their salt will provide you with suggestions and examples!  That is OUR job, to make YOUR decisions as easy as possible!  There are some stunning readings out there.  Good Luck!  :)

Melbourne indoor ceremony ideas!

We are having a winter wedding and want an indoor wedding ceremony! Any ideas that aren't based in the CBD?

There are some beautiful wineries that have open fire places such as Yarra Glen or Red Hill; Monsalvat in Eltham has a gorgeous chapel, as well as other lovely rooms, as has Avalon Castle. Emu Bottom in Sunbury have rooms - in fact, most venues have beautiful indoor areas, as you always have to have an alternative in case it rains, so you really don't need to limit yourself. You may find many venues are also willing to charge a lower rate over winter, too. Good luck~

Who should sit at the top table if the bridal party have all got partners?

My bridal party is made up of several friends, my sister, my finance's sister, and also his brother. Everyone has their individual partners, who are invited to the wedding. Some are being stubborn and want to sit with their partners, but that'll make my top table huge. But if they sit at other tables with their partners, my top table will suddenly have nobody. Are there ways around this? I don't really want to sit alone, but having a huge top table doesn't really sit well with me.

Quite honestly, they have no rights whatsoever to dictate how you want your Bridal Table to be. Traditionally, it was the Bridal Party only that sits at the Top Table, with their partners in amongst the guest. For goodness' sake, surely they can cope without sitting with their partners for an hour or so. That's all it is, because everyone ends up mingling. You need to be quite firm with them. It is YOUR Wedding. YOUR decision. You want it the traditional way and perhaps, if they don't like that, they should reconsider being in the Bridal Party. You must take control, or other issues may come up where people consider they have rights to hijack your day. Be strong! Good luck!

What vows would you recommend for a commitment ceremony?

Apart from leaving out 'husband' and 'wife', or in any way indicating it is a 'legal marriage', you can say anything you like! You do not have to be limited in what you say just because you don't want a legal ceremony. Anything. YOU. Want. I help many couples with their Commitment Ceremony vows and they are often happily surprised with what can be said. Your choice. My job to help you! Good luck, Bethany!
