I do, I do … but unfortunately some marriage celebrants don't | Wedding ceremonies | Scoop.it
MARRIAGE, that staple institution that generates joy and lament in almost equal sums, is not safe even from those charged with extolling and facilitating it. (RT @kchitwood: Not a utopia 'Down Under' w/ civil celebrants in #Australia #NewZealand.

Not a problem in the UK (as civil celebrants cannot legally marry people), although professionalism is always an issue.

Ogenki's insight:

This applies to Australia - but in the UK a civil celebrant has free choice whether or not to take on any work offered. (I've refused to lead a naturist wedding, because I didn't think I'd be able to relax enough, and do a top-rate job.)
