Top tips for choosing a wedding celebrant

Couple on their wedding day Q – What are your top tips for choosing the perfect celebrant?

"A celebrant offers additional choices for those of you who may want to move away from a traditional church or registrar ceremony. It allows you to create a bespoke wedding that captures your style and approach.

"Before booking a celebrant consider the below:

"Be sure to have an initial discussion before making your final decision. It’s important that you connect and are comfortable that the supplier represents you both.

"If possible, choose a local celebrant as this will make it easier for you both to keep in touch.

"Although not essential, look for a professionally qualified supplier and don’t be afraid to ask about their experience.

"Check out what’s included in the contract and the cost of the ceremony. There may be extra costs such as travel or additional elements such as handfasting, unity candle or a sand ceremony.

"Most companies commit to only one wedding a day to ensure that you have no added time pressures. Check that is the case and if not, be clear about time restrictions.

"Social media, websites, magazines and Google searches are a good place to start your search, but also talk to other suppliers as word of mouth recommendations are also great.

"Book as early as possible as, like many other suppliers, the good ones are in high demand.

"Just remember, to be legally married, you will still need to do the legal bits in the registry office. Most couples do this a day or two before their celebrant ceremony at a cost of around £50.
