I read with interest a recent article published by “Hitched” suggesting that Sequel Weddings may be a growing trend in the future. 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. 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.
As the couple will be legally married when they hold the second gathering this would lend itself to having a Celebrant led ceremony, which have none of the restrictions of the legal process.
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 – usually on camping sites. Perhaps in the future we will also see such events taking place in some of the more traditional wedding venues.
So are Sequel wedding the next trend ?
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.
