Celebrant Deborah Chaplin

For the marriage to be legal there are 3 legal requirements to be performed during the ceremony - the Monitum must be stated by an Authorised Marriage Celebrant - The Vows, calling on all present to witness your commitment to each other and 2 witnesses over the age of 18 to witness the marriage and sign the certificates.

The rest is up to you. This is your ceremony so be creative.

The order is basically this and I am always open to suggestions!

  • Guests arrive - (ensure the invitations state a time that is at least 15 minutes earlier than the ceremony time)
  • Party 1 arrives around the same time as the guests and can mingle for a while
  • First half of the wedding party take their places
  • Party 2 enters with the rest of the wedding party
  • I begin by introducing myself and welcoming all
  • The ceremony starts
  • 1st Reading
  • Monitum
  • The asking (I do part)
  • Vows
  • 2nd reading
  • Exchange of rings

  • Signing of certificates (to be witnessed by 2 witnesses over the age of 18)
  • Presentation of marriage certificate
