We talk micro-weddings with Shelley Bell Independent Family Celebrant

Celebrant holding book Credit: Laura Jane PhotographyQ: How can a celebrant help make our micro-wedding more special for the few guests that can attend?

The effects of the pandemic has lead to the micro-wedding becoming popular, and it's perfect for any restrictions on guest numbers you may have. There are huge benefits to this type of wedding – the main one being that it encourages us to keep love and the couple at the centre of it all. From there, the important themes of a marriage can be explored to help you form your commitments to each other. A well-trained celebrant can help you understand this and make it an integral part of your personal, intimate ceremony.

If you don't like being in the spotlight, then a micro-wedding is perfect as there are less eyes focusing on you. You can be braver with your choices when sharing the moment with only your closest family and friends. You could involve more people with tributes, songs, readings or unity ceremonies such as hand-fasting or a candle ceremony.

With no time restrictions or limit on content, you can make the micro-wedding perfect for you. Perhaps you'd like a twilight ceremony followed by a celebratory meal so you get to spend more time with your loved ones? The possibilities are endless.
