Personally it is important to me to get to know a couple, I’m not saying we need to be BFF’s, I need to know about a couple so that I can make their ceremony personal and meaningful.
Many of my weddings come over the internet from couples wanting to come to new Zealand for their ceremony. It is easy to get to know each other these days with e-mail and SKYPE. Often a couple think marrying away from where they live will be difficult but those who do look into how it can be done, are delighted with how simple and inexpensive it can be. Each couple has a budget and if I know that figure I can arrange their wedding ceremony to suit.
It is imortant for me the couple add as much of their own words in the ceremony as possible. Each marriage has its own distinct characteristics and very few are ever the same. Today the 'Traditional' words are considered by most to be outdated.
i.e.The bride promises to obey her husband. Not likely in the 21st century anymore with women advocating equality with men.
I say to those who ask; If the bride says she must obey then the groom must say so as well.
