Roles & Duties

Everyone at your wedding – from the parents of the happy couple to the page boy and guests – has a role to play. The bride and groom arrive at the ceremony separately, make their vows to each other and exchange rings before signing the marriage register. Together they attend the wedding breakfast at the reception venue, where traditionally the groom makes a speech (a modern bride could also make a speech), the cake is cut and the newly wed couple have their first dance.

Modern couples choose to observe many of the traditional conventions of marriage whilst embracing new ideas like the bride’s speech, the best woman and the bridesman.
