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

Related to 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.

What sort of couples choose to do a Pagan Wedding Ceremony?

Related to Ceremony

The type of couple most likely to perform a Pagan style wedding ceremony, are couples who are 'rural' in their virtues and beliefs (ie; 'of the land'). Also, couples who are having an outdoor ceremony, generally set in a forest or wood, or on a farm or similar rural environment. In English folklore, Pagan marriage ceremonies are largely associated with the secular (non-religious) villager style ceremonies of the Middle to Dark Ages, often simple in decoration and grandeur, but rich in purpose and meaningful in content.
