Personalising standard religious ceremonies

Many denominations hand their religious celebrants standard ceremonies to deliver, so here's some tips to give those ceremonies some life.

Description

Personalising standard ceremonies (for Ministers of Religion) (2 hours) 

Celebrants who are ministers of religion are required to follow their religion’s prescribed rites for all marriage ceremonies. These prescribed ceremonies are generally standard in nature, with little to no instruction to the celebrant to include anything personalised within the ceremony. Finding opportunities within a prescribed ceremony to be present in the moment with the marrying couple and their friends and family, and to relate the set wording to the faith and beliefs of the marrying couple, could lead to a more satisfying professional experience for the celebrant and a more fulfilling memory for the couple and their loved ones. This activity will look at where there could be opportunities for including some small personalised aspects within a standard religious marriage ceremony.
