The only part of your wedding that has to serious is the wedding celebrant. Well, that’s not entirely true. The celebrant has a couple of legal things that they have to do and say to make your wedding official, but apart from those serious bits, the celebrant doesn’t have to be serious at all.
In actual fact, the celebrant can be just as unique and memorable as the other parts of your big day. This person is the host of the ceremony basically and sets the tone for the rest of the day. Choosing a celebrant needn’t be a hard, or boring, decision, and should certainly not be one of those afterthoughts of, ‘Oh, that one will do, just book them.’
Many people choose a celebrant through word of mouth, or because they saw them do a friend’s wedding and just liked their style. Because there can be a lot that seems the same about celebrants, this is a good way to select one for you. But if you don’t have any recommendations or know any names from experience, how do you choose one?
Well, isn’t making choices easier the whole point of Easy Weddings? Celebrants are certainly not all the same.
