Wedding Celebrants | How to Choose the Right One!

Many couples today want to celebrate their wedding in an outdoor setting. Be it on the beach, in a beautiful garden, or in a castle, a wedding celebrant can help make your wedding day truly special.

A wedding celebrant can make or break the tone of your wedding, so it’s important to pick the best one. 

How do you choose a wedding celebrant? Find out below:
Qualifications

wedding celebrantAsk a prospective wedding celebrant for proof of their celebrant training, preferably with a professional body like the UK Society of Celebrants, the British Humanist Association or Civil Ceremonies.

Experienced celebrants have the knowledge and resources to make your wedding ceremony a truly memorable one. There are celebrants who specialise in a certain culture or religion, so make sure to ask about the ceremonies they’ve done in the past.

Flexibility

Your wedding celebrant should be comfortable with your chosen venue. Also, make sure to ask if they agree with your wedding theme. When it comes to the ceremony, is your celebrant willing to give you the reigns or would they insist on their own programme? Better ask all these questions beforehand to ensure a smooth and hassle-free ceremony.

Other considerations:
When considering a celebrant, check to see if he has any references. Call these couples and ask about their experience with said celebrant. What did they like and didn’t like about the ceremony? Was the celebrant a good and engaging speaker? Did he/she come to the wedding on time? Make sure to ask all these questions so you can find out if the celebrant is the right one for the job. You can also contact the organisation that trained them to confirm their membership and the training they received.

A top notch wedding celebrant will guide you through the whole process. Also, they are willing to accommodate your questions and concerns and address them accordingly. Not only that, they will listen to your ideas and incorporate them with their own. After all, it’s your wedding not theirs.

Find a celebrant who has the skills to deliver a great wedding ceremony that reflects you and your partner’s personalities. Someone who will make you feel at ease and fill you with confidence so you and your partner can relax and have fun on your wedding day.
