5 Questions to Ask Your Marriage Celebrant
When you meet with a potential marriage celebrant for the first time, it’s a good idea to have a list of questions prepared, to help you gauge a better understanding of who they are and whether or not you’re the right fit for each other.
What does a marriage celebrant do?
From an initial meeting with a couple to discuss their ideas for a ceremony, advice on arranging the legalities, helping write wedding vows, suggesting music and readings, right through to ensuring everything and everyone is in place for the big day; a marriage celebrant can co-ordinate your ceremony from start to finish – and everything in between.
