Wedding celebrants and wedding photographers work closely to ensure the smooth flow of your ceremony.
Wedding celebrants and wedding photographers may not have met prior to your wedding. However we always aim to discuss the programme of your ceremony with your wedding celebrant before your wedding begins; even a few minutes prior to the arrival of the bride enables for a smooth flow of events .
Wedding photographers and celebrants work together in two types of legal wedding ceremonies
- Civil wedding ceremonies are held by a Registrar of Marriages in a Registry Office
- The other is a ceremony held by an appointed Marriage Celebrant (including ministers of religion) at any other place (including places of worship)
When you decide to be married by a Marriage Celebrant you choose how much you want your celebrant to plan for you
Most celebrants encourage you to include meaningful readings and music throughout your wedding ceremony.
- Professional wedding celebrants not only have great resources for ceremonies, including vows and readings, but also are highly skilled at creating the best atmosphere for your wedding, for you and your guests.
- Many wedding celebrants write and deliver the entire ceremony working with details and any readings you have provided. Most wedding celebrants are relaxed and friendly, and are skilled at creating a depth of meaning to your marriage vows.
- Most importantly celebrants help you relax throughout your ceremony, taking firm control. They understand our role as your wedding photographers and support our aims to help get the best photography of your ceremony for you.
If you are hiring a celebrant privately for your wedding it is a good idea to discuss your wedding photographers requirements with them in advance. Your wedding celebrants and wedding photographers relationship is an important one and influences the smooth flow of your wedding ceremony.
There is an unstated relationship and dependency between wedding celebrants and wedding photographers. A good wedding celebrant will understand where to pause throughout your ceremony to allow your photographer and videographer to capture required photography, mementoes that you are going to want to preserve for many years to come.
