What should I look for when choosing a wedding Celebrant?

by Steve Pritchard-Jones

For the perfect wedding you will need the perfect celebrant.

The fantastic thing about having a wedding Celebrant is that you get to choose the perfect celebrant. The Celebrant Directory is a good starting point.

Remember – your wedding, your way!

How do I choose my celebrant?

There are a several things to think about before booking your celebrant.

You should feel comfortable and confident that your celebrant will give you what you want. They will all have different styles – some will be more humorous, others more serious, while many will opt for a symbolic approach to their ceremonies – and it’s important that you find a style that works for you both.

You need to connect with your Celebrant; after all, you’re putting a lot of trust in them! Whatever their style, you need to feel confident that they will deliver a ceremony that fits in with your dream.

Meet your Celebrant face to face, whenever possible.

However, whatever style feels right for you, it’s worth making sure your celebrant:

  • Is a strong communicator – both written and verbal
  • Is confident and has an engaging demeanour
  • Do they listen to you? Do you think they will take on board your thoughts and needs?

You can tell a lot about a person from your first consultation; remember that those first impressions count.
