A good marriage celebrant will highlight all of these and make sure your personality shines through in the wedding ceremony, so make sure you check out a few, and ask to meet them in person for a coffee or give them a call to get a feel for their style and personality! After all, you want to be comfortable with the person who is marrying you to the love of your life!
