Be bold, be brave, be you

We asked celebrant Merie Brown of Orange Rose Ceremonies for her thoughts on how a couple can inject their personalities into their wedding ceremony, making it uniquely theirs. Read on to find out what she had to say.

Black tie wedding in the woods. "If you have church or register office ceremony, you’ll know what to expect. It’s all about the process that every couple needs to follow to make your union legal. You’ll have a set service following rules and guidelines. I myself had a register office ceremony; it was lovely but filled with words set by a stranger.

"The main difference with a celebrant-led service is that it’s not a legal marriage, but a wedding ceremony for each person to declare their feelings in vows they make to each other. My job is to make sure that they’re the most important words of your day and they can take as long or as little time as you wish. I’ll also spend time getting to know you, learning as much about your personalities as possible. Everyone has their own style and some ideas are more unique than others – what do you say to the couple who want a nudist ceremony, or the lady who wants to be Princess Leia?! But it’s ok if that’s what makes it personal to you. So be it Luke Skywalker or Minnie Mouse your personality will shine through on your day. So go for it. Be unique and have the ceremony that means the most to you both."
