The wedding ceremony isn’t something to rush through, just to get to the party at the reception. The ceremony can be the start of the party! It doesn’t have to be something that is dreaded or considered boring. Your ceremony can be customised to reflect you as a couple. Celebrate your wedding ceremony and your love.
Make it unique
Your wedding ceremony is about declaring your love and making a commitment to your partner. Cherish and celebrate this moment. If you like, you can write your own personal vows. This may sound daunting but it’s just telling your partner why you love them and how you promise to love them, now, and into the future. A ceremony will generally go for about 20 minutes and the time does fly. There is no need to rush. Enjoy every moment; this is an important occasion. Your ceremony can be modern and fun, or relaxed, or elegant. Why not include your pet, have your mum as ring bearer or finish with a shower of eco confetti? Tailor it to suit you.
Shake things up
Perhaps you want a traditional wedding, or you might want something more meaningful to you. There are so many things that can be cut away or added in, which is the beauty of a civil ceremony. I can talk about your love story: how you met and what you love about each other. I could introduce your bridal party and talk about your connections. This could help as an ice breaker for the reception and make for some funny stories. We could really turn this thing on its head. What about including some speeches in your ceremony? You could thank your parents and the people who have travelled to be with you. That way, less speeches at the reception and people can get on enjoying the food and drink – just an idea. What I’m saying is that you can embrace the ceremony and make it what you want.
