Parting Notes

Choosing a marriage celebrant might seem like a daunting task, but when you know the right questions to ask and have a great list of celebrants to start from, that task becomes so much easier! Don’t forget to ask if they are licensed and a member of an celebrant association, and how many weddings they have performed / how many years they have been practicing as a licensed marriage celebrant.
