Southern California & Orange County - Civil, Non-Religious Or Religious Ceremonies… Wedding Officiators & Other Wedding Professionals

The Wedding Officiant & Their Relationship With Other Wedding Professionals - For marrying couples requiring a Minister, Clergy, Justice of the Peace, Priest, Rabbi, Judge or other marriage officiator to preside over their marriage ceremony

A Southern California & Orange County marriage ceremony can be more easily planned with the help of a trained wedding officiator/clergy/minister/priest/rabbi/justice of the peace or other wedding celebrant. One knowledgeable and experienced in both planning and presiding over religious, civil or non - religious marriage ceremonies. Once found, have you thought about their working relationship with other wedding professionals?

When Selecting Your Wedding Minister, Judge, Clergy Or Other Marrying Officiator– A Warning

Avoid non-cooperative, freelance or uninvolved wedding officiators - Officiators have obtained the “authority” to solemnize marriages, but are not often screened, career or professional. As most anyone can become an officiator, a bride or groom will need to be extra careful in their selection. Contact TCN for details.

A quick click of a computer mouse and a one can be an officiator – alcoholics, drug addicts, cons, showmen, and those needing quick pocket change, are solemnizing wedding ceremonies. No training - in public speaking, psychology of human events, occasions writing, wedding or event planning, rehearsal coordination and planning, etiquette protocol between wedding professionals, event crisis management, etc., is required. With the exception of The Clergy Network, no other local wedding officiators’ network is comprised of screened, degreed, career professional presiders!

A wedding minister, clergy, officiator, non-denominational or other marriage celebrant must be trained, skillful and experienced in the proper professional etiquette between wedding vendors. Team work between a bride’s and groom’s wedding professionals is key to a smooth and meaningful marriage ceremony – before and during the wedding day. An officiator who just “shows up” on the day asking where to stand is useless, dangerous and unprofessional. A marrying couple should expect and are paying for more than this! Contact TCN for details.

What Kind Of Wedding Officiant/Clergy/Minister Or Civil Officiator Can Benefit Your Marriage Ceremony Preparation?

Some of the following:

  • Make certain that your prospective wedding officiator is degreed in his/her field. Ruling out those without long- time officiating experience, part-timers, beginners, internet or mail-order ordained, the questionable or those officiating just for fun, is an important start. A screened, career, professional officiator is a minimum standard from which to start.
  • Make certain that your prospective wedding officiator can demonstrate knowledge of non-religious or religious wedding ceremony content. Helping you to factor in a number of variables – your wedding location’s policies, familial considerations, personal preferences, ceremony limitations due to physical location and the like.
  • Has a working experience with wedding locations in Orange County - Los Angeles County – Riverside County- San Bernardino County or San Diego County
  • Consider the officiator’s physical qualities in the light of the wedding ceremony environment - inarticulate or soft speaking voice, untidy appearance, confident, friendly, or overall state of health.
  • Consider the officiator’s knowledge of your specific marriage ceremony location. For example, the officiator’s actual experiences at your chosen venue… i.e. their opinion on the wedding venue’s sound system, the location’s wedding coordinator, caterer, location traffic, etc.
  • Make certain that your pre-selected marriage officiator will be the one presiding over your wedding ceremony. You do not want to meet with one wedding officiator/minister/clergy/justice of the peace only to have another one show up on the wedding day. One that has not had significant wedding ceremony experience.
  • Is based with a reputable Orange County officiators group. A screened, career officiator with professional local wedding affiliations.
  • Make certain that your primary officiant/minister/clergy/justice of the peace can supply guaranteed emergency “back-up”, in the event of their illness. This “back-up” should agree to the terms arranged with your primary officiant. The “back-up” should perform the wedding ceremony content already agreed upon.
  • Make certain that the marriage officiant will consult with the wedding professionals directly related to your wedding ceremony & transition to the wedding reception festivities. The wedding reception caterer, event planner or banquet coordinator, photographer, videographer, D.J., musicians, etc, are to be included in this list.
  • Make certain that the officiant/minister/clergy/priest/rabbi/justice of the peace will add the warmth and personality to your ceremony, complimentary to your beliefs, familial relationships, and the wedding environment.
  • A marriage ceremony should not focus on the limitations associated with the setting, but rather emphasize the locations advantages.
