Tips for Finding the Perfect Celebrant

Choosing the perfect wedding celebrant can be like running with a blindfold.

You aren’t sure who to go to or what to look for. So we’ve crafted a handy list of tips for how to find the perfect celebrant for you and your partner.

Remember to have fun when finding and dealing with a celebrant as they are the person who is going to acknowledge and celebrate your love for one another and are passionate about making your wedding day magical.

  • Don’t leave it until last. Although you may find dress shopping more exciting you should also be making time to find the perfect marriage celebrant as soon as possible. Good marriage celebrants are often booked out well in advance so be sure to get in contact with your preferred celebrant ahead of time.
  • Meet with potential celebrants to see how you like them in person. As often exchanges over email and phone do not give you enough indication of how the celebrant will present themselves or how they will conduct your wedding ceremony.
  • Try and make time to meet up with as many celebrants as you can for a commitment free chat before choosing the right one for you. Pick the celebrant that you gel with, who can effectively communicate with you and most importantly understands exactly what you want for your wedding day.
  • Ask appropriate questions. Don’t be afraid to ask your potential celebrant the following questions. If they are a good celebrant they will be passionate about their work and be more than happy to share details of their career.
  • Constructive questions include: What do your previous clients say about you? How many weddings have you conducted? How long have you been a marriage celebrant? What qualifications have you acquired? What is your knowledge of the religion or faith? (if applicable) Are you aware of all the legal requirement of marriage?
  • Share stories with your celebrant. Tell your celebrant how you met and why you fell in love with one another so that he/she can get a feel for who you are as a couple so all this an be incorporated into your unique wedding ceremony.
  • Being calm under pressure, friendly, warm, confident, professional and flexible are all critical in a good celebrant and what you should be looking out for. It’s also important that not only are they open to your suggestions, but they are creative and have their own ideas so that you can work together to customise your wedding to suit you.
  • Have a rehearsal. Leading up to your wedding date, meet with your chosen celebrant and say your planned lines with them. It would also help to have a small audience of family and friends. There is no doubt that you will be nervous on your wedding day so it helps to practice what is going to be said so that you feel more at ease.

Also take on board any suggestions your friends and family might have as to how you and your celebrant should preform. Lastly, when rehearsing, make sure the script is sincere and specific (and don’t be afraid to add a little humour).

Of course we would be delighted to help with one of Brisbane’s top rated celebrants in our own wonderful Jemma – she helped me put together this list and wants you to find the right celebrant for you.

Hope that helps.
