Creating a Meaningful Ceremony

Creating a Meaningful Ceremony

Crafting a meaningful ceremony is all about embracing authenticity and personalisation. Ditch traditions that don’t resonate with you, create a vibe that reflects your unique relationship, and don’t hesitate to seek guidance from your celebrant to make your special day truly yours, you got this!

1. Traditions

Consider this your permission slip to ditch any traditions that don’t align with you, or re-work them to suit your circumstances. There are no wedding police, you can do whatever the heck you want! Think: walking down the aisle together or having your father take his seat just before the end of the aisle so you can ‘give yourself away’, do a first look or officially get married a few weeks earlier and recite your vows on your ‘wedding’ day… you do you!

2. Create a vibe

Are you a hopelessly romantic couple? Practical jokers? Lean into it! Your guests will love it, you’ll love it and it will be a true extension of who you are. Gone are the days where a wedding ceremony is a formal and stuffy occasion, let loose and create the atmosphere you both want!

Honestly, the options are endless when it comes to personalising your ceremony and creating a meaningful moment in time. Your ceremony should truly embody your relationship, after all, it is the entire reason you and your guests are gathering for your wedding (yes, we know, and the party afterwards!).

3. Don’t sweat it

Just thinking about opening your heart in front of 150 of your nearest and dearest might make you weak at the knees, so why not keep your ceremony vows short and sweet, saving a longer version while you are off having your wedding portraits: just the two of you and your hired third wheel (photographer).

4. Don’t leave it to the last minute

Vows take time, keep a note on your phone so you can jot down little incidental thoughts and feelings in the lead up to your wedding, that way you can pull from a long list of lovely nuances when it comes to putting pen to paper.

5. Ask for help

Your celebrant is a ceremony pro (obviously), they are great at reading a room and setting the tone. We can guarantee that they will be full to be brim with ideas for you, especially if you have a few ideas bubbling around in your head already.
