Question Answer

How do I deal with Nerves in the lead up to my ceremony?

Related to Ceremony

I suggest any of the following: 1. Rolling your head gently in a circular motion 2. Shrugging your shoulders and holding (releases nervous energy) 3. Taking some deep breaths and holding (letting the air out slowly) 4. Controlling the speed of your breathing (and heart rate) 5. Focusing (or thinking) about a quiet, peaceful, happy place 6. Smiling (this promotes the release of endorphins).

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.
