Registrar or Celebrant, the choice is yours. Do you know the difference?
Updated: Mar 24
A Registrar is employed by the local authority and can legally marry you.
The ceremony is restricted by legislation and no religious or spiritual content may be included.
Registrars will often carry out a number of ceremonies each day so they will insist on keeping to the designated time.
Due to time constraints, you are unlikely to meet the Registrar prior to the day of your ceremony. ❤️
A Celebrant is self-employed and will take time to get to know you and work with you to craft a beautiful, bespoke, non-legally binding ceremony that reflects your ideas, values and personalities.
By separating the legal aspect of marriage, your ceremony can be about love, not legalities.
A Celebrant is not restricted to licensed areas, so you can choose the perfect venue for you, in the designated area, in the beautiful grounds, at home, on the beach?
By the time your big day arrives, your Celebrant will know you and together you will have created the perfect service for you. ❤️
My couples choose to carry out the legal aspect of the service a few days before ❤️
A Celebrant ceremony is a real and very beautiful wedding ceremony, where couples declare their love and commitment to each other in front of their family and friends. Many couples choose to not tell their guests that it is not a legal ceremony and their guests are none the wiser, in fact regularly guests say after the ceremony that it was much more personalised and beautiful than other weddings they’ve been to! ❤️
Which will you choose? ❤️
