6 Key Questions To Ask Any Celebrant
It is essential you ask the right questions
1 "Are you Insured?"
It is staggering the number of celebrants who maintain no insurance cover.

2 "What are you there for?"
Some feel all they need to provide is a 10-15-minute Registry style ceremony. Many clients want more than that.

3 Do you have a PA?"
A major issue given the number of celebrants who think they have a good voice and won't purchase a PA.

4 "Do you offer choice?"
If all you want is a Registry style wedding, fine. If you want choice, is your celebrant able to not only give you what you want, but deliver it as you want.

5 "Is your passion full-time?"
Is this the celebrant's full-time income?

6 "Are you in a Professional celebrant association?"
This is essential, since it is generally the prime means where celebrants have constant access to professional education updates apart from their annual one-day Ongoing Professional Development course.
Imagine the scene...
• Your trusted celebrant has completed his setup.
• His PA system is in place, his signing table is setup.
• The guests are full of anticipation for what's about to happen.
• Your vehicle arrives out front.
• You are greeted by Celebrant Philip Greentree, who makes sure you are calm & ready, before returning to await your entry.

• Now, it's time. The entry music is playing, you give the signal and your procession commences.....

"Brendan and I would like to take the opportunity to say a very big, heartfelt Thank you to you for doing such a wonderful job at our wedding on Saturday. We are really happy to be married and very pleased with how well the ceremony and also the rest of the day / night went.

The ceremony you performed was so special and even exceeded the high expectations we had. All the guests commented how unique and special the ceremony was. People loved the parents blessing, ring cleansing & handfasting ceremony particularly and also your explanation of "tying the knot".

My elderly uncle told me he had become overwhelmed with emotion during the ceremony and said it was the best wedding ceremony he had ever attended. The comments we received were overwhelming and meant so much to us. Of course the ceremony was very special and perfect to us but its nice to know that the guests felt it was really special too.

We sincerely thank you for everything. I will certainly recommend you to all other friends and family who marry in future! We really, really appreciate your wonderful work.."
