When Nervous....Breathe!

Posted on July 15, 2016 at 8:05 AM

Officiant work is fun and meaningful. What I truly enjoy about serving people, is getting to know them: who they are, what they believe in, what their visions are, how they fell in love, how they see their marriage unfolding.

As a writer, crafting words that fit each couple, takes time and thought, so that every word is rich in descriptions that define the couple.

Although, the ceremony is completed within 10 to 20 minutes, it may seem like a LIFETIME to some couples who get nervous and self conscious by standing up in front of all their guests and family. It can be stressful!

So, my education in things like yogic breathing to stay calm and relaxed, comes in handy up at that altar or arbor. I often whisper to the couple to take some deep breaths.

Having some tissues on hand helps too, as tears do flow, either as a release from 'wow, we have finally arrived after all that planning', or sheer happiness.

Make sure when you choose an Officiant, you interview them, to see if they are a good fit to manifest your wedding day as you wish.
