Tips for creating a festive wedding ceremony

Tips for creating a festive wedding ceremony Q – My hubby-to-be and I love Christmas and want to incorporate festive nods into our ceremony. Do you have any ideas of how we could do this?

"There are no rules or restrictions when you have a celebrant-led ceremony, which means you can build in as much or as little festive cheer as you like. Here are some ideas:

"Play Christmas music when you enter your venue, this could be an upbeat song, something romantic or a traditional carol.

"Hold your ceremony around a decorated Christmas tree.

"Invite your guests to write messages on baubles and place them on the tree as keepsakes.

"Incorporate Christmas verses into the wording of your ceremony and include a candle unity ceremony.

"Have your first kiss as a married couple under a sprig of mistletoe.

"Use a machine to make it snow at the end of your ceremony and as you exit together as a married couple.

"Your view of festive cheer may be different from others, and that’s fine. A celebrant will work with you to understand your wishes and build these into your ceremony, creating a wonderful experience and memories for you both."
