When choosing a Celebrant to help you achieve the ceremony of your choice there are a few things to consider.
The role of a celebrant is to serve either the bereaved and their community or to help a couple to create a wonderful wedding blessing or a family welcoming a new member to the family.
Good Celebrants create and leading uplifting, fitting, and personal, ceremonies. A Celebrants work should clearly reflect either the person who has passed away, by respecting their belief system, acknowledgement of their community of family and friends, and create an environment in which the grieving process can be held and supported. Or help a couple or family share wonderful celebrations by listening to their needs and wishes, and helping them make the right decisions to achieve their desired ceremony.
