Choosing a Marriage Officiant

Wedding Officiant

Choosing your Marriage Officiant may be one of the most important choices you will make while planning the details for your Marriage Ceremony and your Wedding.


You may look after all the details and all the planning that goes with your wedding but the most important part of your special and magical day will be the actual ceremony where you will exchange your personal vows, seal your promise with an exchange of rings and be pronounced as Husband and Wife.  The words that you share with one another at your ceremony will be a stepping stone towards the journey that you will be on, together forever in your married life.  The expression of your personal feelings will make your ceremony unique, memorable and add an intimacy to your ceremony.  Adding your own thoughts of the love that you share will allow you both to give deeper meaning to your ceremony.  This will be a single moment in time, never to be repeated and needs to have all of your desires for a memorable, reverent, and beautiful moving experience.  Your ceremony will be the highlight of your photographs and memories.


Take time to talk to you Officiant to discuss your options and have all of your questions answered. Whether you are choosing a Minister or a Marriage Commissioner you may ask if they will assist you in;

  1. consultation appointments.

  2. personal assistance with your vows.

  3. extra ceremonies like a candle ceremony,

  4. sand ceremony, rose ceremony or dove ceremony, etc.

  5. Use your special selection of a reading or verse.

  6. assist at you rehearsal.

  7. guide the processional and recessional order.

You will want your Marriage Officiant to assist you in preparing a personal, romantic and meaningful Marriage Ceremony. You are “Creating Memories To Last A Life Time.”
