No doubt you have your own list of questions that you ask your couple, to draw out from them all the stories and information you need to create their personalised love story, tailored just to them, their relationship and their love for one another.

But when was the last time you reviewed your questionnaire? When was the last time you added in some new questions? Or took some not so good questions out?
You will also be challenged to think who else you can ask these questions of, to get their responses to add into the couples ceremony!  

This session will push you to think outside of the box and create a list of questions that you can confidently ask your couples, to get the best out of them to create a ceremony they may have never thought was possible.

Many celebrants are probably quite confident with how they run their rehearsals and have been doing them the same way for years... but are they actually running off a checklist? Do they get in the car after a rehearsal and say to themselves, "Oops, I forgot to talk about that, or I forgot to tell them that..."

Here over 2 hours you will create your very own personalised checklist that you can use for every rehearsal that you conduct.

By the end of this session you will have created a fool-proof way to ensure your rehearsals are the best they can be, so you don't forget anything while your couples are benefitting from their celebrant being at the top of their game, ensuring a seamless, perfect ceremony on the wedding day.

You might be a brand new celebrant, eager to get your first wedding under your belt, maybe you have performed a handful of ceremonies or have been a celebrant for years and years.... this session will give you the time you need to create, review and implement a Wedding Day checklist to ensure you are being the best possible celebrant you can be on the wedding day... for your couple, for their guests and for your own word of mouth and reputation after the wedding day is over!

Together we will workshop and create a checklist that will cover you from the night before the wedding, the morning of the wedding, driving to the wedding, setting up, performing the ceremony, to packing up, saying goodbye, sending off your paperwork to BDM and your feedback form to the couple!

This checklist will ensure nothing is missed, so you can sleep well at night knowing you have not forgotten anything and you are maximising your exposure to everyone at the wedding to increase your chances of securing more enquiries than you would have ever before, without this list!
