Jake Smith - Marriage Celebrant.
It seems pretty obvious... Weddings should be good!
People gather at weddings to celebrate the people they love making an amazing commitment and crossing a threshold in life.
It's a celebrants job to make sure it feels awesome, not boring!
Bad weddings are awkward, disjointed, irrelevant and unpleasant; perhaps you've been to one? You may have been un-comfortable, confused or cringing through the whole thing!
What’s amazing is that bad weddings still happen all the time!!
What makes a Ceremony great?!
Great weddings engage the couple and their guests right from the get-go.
No one gets bored and people actually smile... and cry (in a good way).
Great ceremonies are never monotonous or read (painfully) word after word because at great weddings the people are more important than the celebrant reading their thing.
There's eye-contact, maybe a little laughter and perhaps a story or two. Ultimately the guests feel like they go on a journey with the couple. Because the ceremony was actually about them. Crazy right?!
I'm humbled that I get to work with couples so closely on a day that's so significant. I don't think I'll ever take that for granted.
