    Going to sound really silly but I keep seeing the word officiant and to do lists saying to book one, but i don't know what one is :( please could someone shine the light on this please, and if we need one how do we go about booking one? We have booked the church and paid a deposit and said we want the organist and bells and need to send our song lists and vows in but hasn't mentioned about the officiant x

    Officiant is basically whoever is conducting the ceremony, some people have registra, some a vicar.e.t.c its someone who officiates your wedding . My friend is marrying us , he isn't a vicar or a registra, he is just a friend who is conducting the ceremony and therefore called a officiant.. if that makes sense :) so if you have booked your church you have yours sorted already

    Are you getting married in church etc or at a hotel/ registry office? the certificate is usually presented after the ceremony.

    We are getting married in a church then having reception in a hotel, I know we need to have our banns read at our local church and the church ewe are wedding at. Think I need to chat to the church to get in order what we need to do and when we need to do the banns and if there is anything else. X

    The banns are usually done at both churches the first 3 Sundays in the month before you are married. Ours was basically a list of names in a book and they ask if anybody knows of any reason why each couple shouldn't be married. We decided to go and hear them being called, but apparently you don't have to be there. Our last one is tomorrow and we have to collect a certificate to give to the vicar who is doing our ceremony.

    You can book them when ever you want but they won't be read out untill max 3 months before your wedding as that's all the certificate lasts
