Reflections on the job of a Wedding Officiant
I always tell couples that the job of the wedding officiant on their wedding day is to make them look good. That can be as simple as gently moving them into place so their photographer gets a great shot, or relieving their stress by having them repeat their vows so they don’t have to memorize them.
Whatever happens, follow the wedding officiant…
You do not know now what will happen on your wedding day.
Anita Paskojevic: confidence, elegance and all that with a smile
Anita is of the Bond family, as she does double duty as company director and wedding officiant.
She is pretty good at it too! Well, I believe this is the perfect job for her. Why?
Last summer I was having a chat with her very handsome 18 year old son. We were sitting in the shade watching Anita “in action”. She led the ceremony with her known grace and charm. Afterwards, she ushered the guests that needed to be ushered and then took a royal 30 minutes to chat with any family member that was around.
It was hot out in the sun, we were happy to sit and watch from a shaded area.
Looking at her I asked him: “So, how come your mother does not get tired of talking?”
He says: “I ask myself that very question every day”
After some Q and A (I shall not elaborate because we need to give the boy a future to live for), we concluded that Anita must like people and talking to people so much that it comes naturally to her. Even in full sun in 40 degrees Celsius. She is effortless at it and masters the art of conversations to a level that goes above and beyond the average social behaviour.
ANITA: “This is easy. Where to start?
Maybe I could start with what a beautiful feeling it is to meet 2 singles – to talk through & organise the ceremony with them and then to have the pleasure to put their hands together and “seal” them into one, to experience their nervousness so close with them before the ceremony, their feelings, tears and hugs during the ceremony… to read their vows together with them and to have the pleasure to congratulate them as the first … each time it makes my day.”
