How do I know where my bridal party will stand?

Related to Rehearsal

When we do your rehearsal, you will be able to decide where and in what formation you want your bridal party to stand. Generally, the bridal party will stand on either side of the couple, slightly turned-in (about 45 degrees) towards the couple.

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.
