Expert Advice

How many weddings do you book in per day?

Are celebrants usually doing one per day? or two on some days? How is this possible?! haha

Hi there,

Thanks for the question. I have chosen to book one wedding ceremony per day as I prefer to apply all my effort and energy into helping make  a couple's wedding day as fabulous as possible. I understand that some celebrants do multiples in one day successfully, however, I'm happy with one.

Any advice on writing my vows to my wife-to-be?

Great question Nathan!

It's so very special to take the time and effort to write your own vows.  Your celebrant could help you by asking you what you would like to express in the vows and offer you ideas or help on how to put it all together. Create magic!

How long would I require a celebrant for?

Generally, when couples book a celebrant how long do they book them for?

Hi Lucy and congratulations on your upcoming wedding! I usually arrive between 30 - 60 minutes prior to the ceremony. The ceremony is usually around 30 minutes including signing of the certificates. My fee is inclusive and covers all meetings, rehearsal and email/phone support etc. as required. If you are wondering how soon to book a celebrant for your wedding day, I suggest you chat to few celebrants and when you find one that you feel is right for you, I would go ahead and book. Good luck and I wish you all the best for the future.

Is it ok to use the same Celebrant that our friends used?

What are your thoughts on using the same celebrant that a friend used? Have you experienced this before?

Hi Kate, congratulations on your upcoming wedding! It is certainly a compliment to your friend to choose the same celebrant as it shows you were impressed with the ceremony. I'm sure your friend would be flattered if you indicate that you would like to use the same one. Using the same celebrant, you will feel more confident that he/she performs ceremonies in the style that you like. Each ceremony should be unique and personalised and your connection with the celebrant is important.

Good luck and I trust your ceremony will be one of the best days of your life.

What vows would you recommend for a commitment ceremony?

Hi Bethany, the best vows are the ones that are meaningful to you both. Jot down a few ideas from the heart and your celebrant can help you create the vows that are yours, written with the essence of your personalities. You can have heartfelt words combined with a touch of humour. Have fun with it!

How do I choose a celebrant that will suit my partner and I?

What is the best method for choosing the ideal celebrant?

Hi Bianca, choosing a celebrant is a very personal thing.  Chatting on the phone is a good start and if you would like to take it further arrange a time to meet. Then if the chemistry is right and you make a connection, go with your gut.
