What makes your ceremonies different to other Celebrants?

Related to General

My ceremonies are best described as short, punchy, upbeat, and light-hearted whilst being highly professional. I tend to work with couples who are looking for something more relaxing, fun, yet polished and memorable. I do not stand between the couple (during the ceremony), in fact I stand well-clear of the central focal point (photographers love this). I also perform the entire ceremony completely from memory, without notes (although I do carry an iPad for effect only)..

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.

Why do some Celebrants ask the bride and broom to face their guests during the ceremony?

Some Celebrants prefer the traditional Catholic church approach to weddings, where the bride and groom will often sit on a chair facing their guests throughout the ceremony.
