As a leading event manager specialising in weddings I have curated and also seen many life celebrations over the years, and I can say with confidence that the role of a wedding planner has become increasingly more important to time manage the creative and logistic planning as well as the delivery day.
The reason is simple: planning a wedding is not an easy task. It requires attention to detail, creativity, logistics, risk analysis, contract negotiation and coordination of and with vendors and venues which equates to lot of time and effort saving when you partner with a wedding planner who is also a authorised Marriage Celebrant.
But what if your wedding planner was not just any wedding planner, but also a celebrant?
You may be wondering, what are the benefits of having a wedding planner who is also a celebrant? It’s an integrated wedding service.
In this blog post, I’ll share some of the advantages that come with having a wedding planner who can also perform your wedding ceremony too.
So what are the benefits of partnering with a wedding planner who is also a celebrant….. read on for 6 top reasons to consider an integrated wedding planning service.
1/ A deeper understanding of your vision:
A wedding planner who is also a celebrant has a unique advantage over other planners. They understand your vision for your wedding day on a much deeper level, as they are also the one who will be assisting with the wedding script and leading the ceremony and reception planning too.
This means they can help you plan a whole wedding that is not only beautiful but also meaningful and personal which has connections from the first step into the aisle through to the farewell of the happy couple post the ceremony and reception.
2/ Ceremony creation:
Your wedding planner, who is also your celebrant, can help you choose the perfect music, readings, and rituals that reflect your values and beliefs and manages all of the marriage legal requirements too.
They can also help you craft your vows, ensuring that they are sincere, heartfelt, and reflect your love for one another, segueing to magic moments that become treasured memories.
3/ Streamlined Communication:
Having a wedding planner who is also a celebrant means that there is one less vendor to communicate with in the process.
This can make the planning process much easier and less stressful for you both and more cost efficient.
Your planner will be able to work with all of the vendors, such as the transport, florist, caterer, photographer, floor and seating plans, musicians, and the venue coordinators, to ensure that everything runs smoothly on the day of your wedding.
They can also coordinate the rehearsal, making sure that everyone knows what to do and where to be on the day.
4/ A Personalised Ceremony
When you have a wedding planner who is also a celebrant, you can expect a truly personalised ceremony.
Your celebrant will be able to incorporate your unique love story, traditions, and beliefs into the ceremony which can be integrated in the look, vibe and delivery of the reception. They can also work with you to create a ceremony that is inclusive of your guests, regardless of their background or beliefs. This can help make your wedding day more meaningful and memorable for everyone involved.
5/ Stress-free from Ceremony to Reception
Having a wedding planner who is also a celebrant means that you can relax and enjoy your wedding ceremony. Your planner will be there to guide you through every step of the ceremony, plus all the legals required under the Marriage Act of Australia (Cth) ensuring that everything runs smoothly. They can also help you deal with any last-minute issues that may arise, such as a missing ring or a misplaced bouquet. They will then be across all of the coordination logistics from ceremony to reception so that everything is seamless on the day.
6/ A trusted Partner in the integrated wedding processes:
Your wedding planner who is also a celebrant can become a trusted partner throughout your wedding planning journey. They can provide you with emotional support and guidance, as well as professional advice. They can also help you manage your budget and ensure that you are getting the best value for your money.
In conclusion, having a wedding planner who is also a celebrant can be a game-changer when it comes to planning your dream wedding. Not only will you have a planner who can help you navigate the planning process, but you’ll also have a celebrant who has assisted you both to create a meaningful and personal ceremony.
