Where do you stand when you solemnise our marriage?

Related to Ceremony

There is no absolute position that I stand, although I prefer to stand well away from the bride and groom, generally nearer the end of the bridal party. From this vantage point, I can address the guests as well as the wedding couple. It is also the optimum position for wedding photos, beacuse there is no celebrant standing in the way when the couple are taking their vows and exchanging rings.

What should I do if I think that one of my guests may cause a scene at my ceremony?

Related to Relationships

As a Celebrant I have had to manage a range of complex issues during marriage ceremonies. Often, the idea that a guest may make a scene, is the bride or groom projecting his or her own stresses and tensions in the lead-up to the big moment. Wayward are also generally corralled (or calmed) by your many other guests, the bridal party, the Celebrant or the function or venue staff.
