But how do you ensure you´re maximising the benefits of hiring a celebrant in respect of planning your special day? To answer this question, I´ll share my top tips here. 

Communication is key

Communication is essential in making the most of having a celebrant for your special day. They will usually agree the frequency of contact with you dependent on the date of your wedding ceremony.  Regular meetings help you receive the benefits from hiring an officiant, such as building a relationship before your ceremony. This helps your celebrant to write a personalised ceremony, whether your having a bilingual wedding ceremony or in English.  However, it´s also a time when you can ask any questions and progress the direction of your ceremony planning.  Your officiant can usually offer support with local knowledge about suppliers and working with suppliers if needed. So, although it´s understandable planning your wedding can be stressful, having regular catch-ups can help reduce the overwhelm.

Make the most of having a celebrant by exploring ideas in your followups

Don´t be afraid to explore the aspects of your wedding celebration with your celebrant.  It´s your ceremony and an opportunity to talk through ideas and make decisions.  Sometimes your initial plans might change, for example changing from a wedding to a popular choice of an elopement, this is natural. Your celebrant is with you to help you embrace and get excited about your decisions. In addition their role as an experienced celebrant is in pinpointing what´s needed to design a ceremony that reflects and resonates with you both.  Recapping and discussing new elements, saves time, reduces stress, minimising follow up from your celebrant later. It´s also liberating progressing aspects of your ceremony, ticking off your list of key points. Making the most of having a celebrant permits you to enjoy the ceremony planning experience whilst visualising your ceremony.

Allow your celebrant to use their experience
