Vivienne Bate is a full-time Celebrant that loves all things wedding and ceremony. Her passion has always been for people – and organising events, massive or intimate, for an International Convention Centre, was the catalyst that started it all! This passion for people and efficient organisation and creative writing skills, are perfect traits to ensure that as your Celebrant, your ceremony is absolutely as you want it, and flows smoothly from start to finish. A “cookie cutter” ceremony is simply not her style.
How to Pick the Perfect Wedding Celebrant for your Brisbane or Queensland Wedding
The ideal wedding celebrant will be someone who makes you feel natural and relaxed. You should be able to pick up on their friendliness and organisational skills at your first meeting. They should show genuine interest in crafting an unique wedding ceremony that will incorporate aspects of your romantic journey along with the necessary legal requirements. Get in touch with a few celebrants, have a chat with them about your wedding ideas, and see whom you feel most comfortable with.
You might also like to check and see if your short-listed celebrants will be conducting any other weddings on your chosen date, and see how they plan to accommodate the timing of the ceremonies. You don’t want them stuck in traffic when they should be at your wedding!
Some celebrants can offer extras like a PA system or microphone to ensure your guests can hear you well. This can be particularly important if you plan on having a video taken on your day. Be sure to give your videographer your celebrant’s details so they can plan the best way to capture your wedding.
Similarly, some celebrants have a signing table they can provide along with special signing pens and more. Be sure to ask what extra touches they provide as part of their wedding service.
Best wishes for finding your perfect Queensland wedding celebrant. Here’s a list of some of Brisbane and Queensland’s most popular wedding celebrants.
Happy wedding planning. xx
