What does this include? (Travel to your chosen venue(s), in-person, meetings before the wedding to talk about vows?)
Do you do rehearsals? Many celebrants do this as a matter of course, but some may not.
Do you require a deposit?
When is payment required?
How many weddings do you do on one day? Don’t be put off by someone who has multiple bookings in one day, but check they have allowed plenty of time between ceremonies. You don’t want a celebrant to be over-committed or running late for your wedding because they got stuck in traffic coming from someone else’s wedding.
How do you feel about our wedding ideas? Share what your wedding plans are and what you’d like to include in your wedding ceremony. You want to see that your celebrant is interested and perhaps contributes to the ideas you have (for example, a unity ceremony)
How do you personalise our wedding ceremony? i.e. will the celebrant get to know you over a couple of meetings and write something unique to you?
Will you share a draft of our ceremony with us?
What support can you offer for our vows? i.e. does the celebrant have a few suggested vows, are you able to write your own if you wanted to?
Do you have any wedding reading ideas? A good celebrant will have lots of wedding reading resources, and can direct you to ideas that’ll suit your wedding style and your personalities.
What happens if you are sick? Does the potential celebrant have a backup plan in place if really ill on your wedding day?
What is your cancellation policy? (In case you need to cancel or postpone your wedding)
