The Role of Your Officiant

On the face of it, your officiant is like a Master of Ceremonies, working to keep the pageant rolling along on schedule.

Your officiant should also help you tell the story of your love and the joining of your lives.

Of course, the officiant is present to solemnize your marriage – that’s the “I now pronounce you” part.

After the ceremony, the officiant makes sure the marriage certificate is done correctly and filed with the registrar of deeds within 3 days of the marriage.
