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. I prefer to take the pressure of the wedding couple, which is why couples face me (the Celebrant) during the early part of the ceremony.

Why is it difficult to find Marriage Rituals relating to Indigenous Australians?

Related to Ceremony

The most common issue is, that apart from there being 2 main types of Indigenous Australians (Aboriginals and Torres Strait Islanders), each tribe has it's own distinct beliefs, ceremonies and rituals. There is no 'one-size-fits-all', so it is important to research the ceremonial practices of your selected tribe or blood ancestry.
