What is a Celebrant Ceremony
A Celebrant Wedding Ceremony allows couples to have more flexibility and creative control over their ceremony. As a celebrant I work closely with the couples, to create a custom ceremony. This can include elements such as vows, readings, rituals, and symbolic gestures that hold personal significance to the couples.
Celebrant ceremonies, on the other hand, are non-legally binding and conducted by celebrants who create personalized and customized ceremonies. Celebrant ceremonies allow for greater flexibility in terms of location, script, and incorporating religious or cultural elements.
They are symbolic and focus on reflecting the couple’s values, beliefs, and love story. Wedding ceremonies can take place in various wedding venues and can be tailored to incorporate cultural or familial traditions.
Introducing Myself & Why I Became an Celebrant
My name is Lisa Kendell, and I’m a celebrant who loves to have a good time and truly pays attention to all the tiny elements that go into creating the ideal ceremony.
As an independent celebrant, I can conduct services for all types of occasions and at any venue or reception, of your choosing.
My journey started in 2018, after chatting with an uncle who became a celebrant. Im naturally a fun-loving bubbly person and not so much into the formality of things especially obtaining a marriage certificate at the registrars, it’s not much fun. So in 2019, we both began our training to become Independent civil celebrants and have never looked back since.
I can’t legally issue a wedding certificate at a celebrant wedding venue. What I can do is conduct the best personalised ceremony ever.
My Role as a Wedding Celebrant
One of my key roles is to help individuals or families plan and design their celebrations. They assist in selecting readings, music, and rituals that are relevant and meaningful to the occasion. I have excellent public speaking and storytelling skills. Which enables me to be responsible for delivering the ceremonies and engaging the wedding participants.
In addition to conducting the marriage ceremony, as a celebrant I can also assist with legal paperwork, guide wedding traditions and etiquette, and offer support and advice throughout the wedding planning process.
At a Celebrant Ceremony, I aim to provide a meaningful and memorable experience that honours the couple’s love and commitment.
The Advantages of a Celebrant Wedding Ceremony
One of the many advantages of a celebrant wedding is the flexibility it offers. We are not bound by specific religious or cultural traditions, they can tailor the ceremony to suit the happy couple’s wishes. This allows for a more inclusive approach, accommodating couples from different backgrounds, beliefs, and orientations.
Unique & Meaningful Celebrant Wedding Ceremony
In a celebrant wedding, the focus is on creating a unique and meaningful ceremony that reflects the values, beliefs, and personalities of the people getting married. Celebrants work closely with the clients to understand their preferences, story, and vision for their wedding day. They then craft a customized ceremony that incorporates personal elements such as vows, readings, music, rituals, and symbolic gestures.
