Who will you choose to conduct the wedding ceremony?
If you’re planning a religious wedding ceremony, you may already have a preference for a particular minister, priest, rabbi or imam. Similarly, if a civil ceremony is more to your style, you may be thinking of approaching a celebrant whom you’ve witnessed conducting someone else’s wedding. However if this is all new territory for you, it’s important that you do your research and take your time to find a celebrant or officiant with whom you really click.
Whether you’re standing in front of the altar, or surrounded by friends on white beach sands about to take your vows, this is a BIG moment. You want to feel confident and at ease with the person conducting the ceremony. Likewise, it’s really important that the words and the sentiment ring true for both of you.
