There are many important points to consider when choosing your celebrant. Such as how they come across on the first contact with you. Are they pleasant, positive and genuinely interested?
Good celebrants are also great listeners and should establish what ideas you have for your ceremony before contributing their own suggestions and should explain the legal requirements of a wedding ceremony. Do they offer to provide you with resources? These may include sample ceremonies, readings, vows and ring exchange wordings. In Outrageous Bride issue 9, we feature Glenn “That Celebrant Guy” to find out a bit more.
Hi! I’m Glenn (That Celebrant Guy), I create and deliver bespoke wedding ceremonies, naming ceremonies and renewals of vows which are ALWAYS fun, super relaxed and incredibly personal. I’m based in The North West, although I have friends and family all around the UK (and abroad in fact), so I have lots of opportunity to travel around to ceremonies everywhere.
It’ll be the BIG DAY that everyone talks about! There really are no restrictions for what we can put into your ceremony. You can have whatever readings, poems and music you like. I write your story and share it with your guests, which will no doubt put smiles on their faces. Want to do shots during the ceremony or include your favourite drink? Let’s do it! The options are endless. We’ll still do all the usual bits like your vows, your ring exchange and signing of a certificate, just with MUCH more of a personality than the bog standard, same wedding you’ve seem time and time again.
There is an option to book me for the entire wedding day. I’ll get you hitched and then I’ll stick around for the day making all of your main announcements, introduce any speeches etc., and work really closely with the other suppliers on the day so you can sit back, relax, and just enjoy yourself. It just takes the added stress off you if I can just do these things for you.
It’s pretty hard to sum up what I do, so I always advise that we have a no obligation video chat to discuss more in detail about what you’re looking for. That way, you get to actually meet me, chat with me, essentially “Try Before You Buy”. You can see more of what I’m about on my social media, where you’ll also see my reviews and testimonials from couples and families I’ve worked with in the past.
