Just prior to Covid I wrote a blog about Sequel weddings and suggested that we might see more couples opting for them. It seems that the idea of having more than one event to celebrate a couple getting married is now becoming increasingly popular.
Sequel Wedding celebrations are not new and in many different cultures it has long been the tradition to have multiple wedding ceremonies.
Couples choosing to have a Sequel wedding can spread their celebration over several days or even months. They may choose a small intimate celebration with close family and friends either here or abroad and then follow that with a more lavish wedding celebration to which they can invite a larger group of guests.
If a couple legally marry in a small ceremony then the second gathering lends itself to having a Celebrant led ceremony This ceremony would have none of the restrictions of the legal process and therefore be far more personal.
I have been part of a number of events which would fit into the category of Sequel weddings, conducting ceremonies as part of a weekend wedding festival, following two plus two registry office services or at the start of a large family party.
Planning a series of events gives a couple the opportunity to celebrate in different ways.
If you are considering this idea why not get in touch and discus how I might help ?
Choosing a Celebrant to help you create that special ceremony is an important step towards making your occasion a really memorable one. Why not take advantage of the free initial meeting I offer ? I believe it is important to meet informally to discuss your ideas and what I can offer. Meeting also gives us an opportunity to explore the type of ceremony that would best suit your needs.
