A professional celebrant is an individual who has decided to train into a role which allows them to assist individuals and families to celebrate the important milestones in the circle of life. A celebrant can include elements of your faith if you would like this, whether it is a funeral, wedding, renewal of vows or a naming ceremony. Consider the following : since 1837 as a society we have registered 3 things - births, marriages and deaths. You can have wedding ceremony in a venue of your choice, this means you can have it done outside - weather permitting, the venue you choose does not need to be licensed for weddings if you use a celebrant. There is great flexibility in using a celebrant who will make your day exciting and a reflection of you as a couple. The legal element can be completed in a registry office with 2 witnesses then you choose where and when to have your wedding.
