Things you need to know when picking a wedding officiant in kenya

First before you’ll determine who will officiate your ceremony, you must decide what type of marriage ceremony you want. Religious or civil. Whereas a spiritual ceremony is performed by an ordained religious priest or pastor,

A civil ceremony is performed by a licensed officiant from the Attorney General’s office or district office. The officiant’s fee is that the fee paid to whoever performs your wedding. Some churches will invite this fee directly and a few might not ask. It’s however customary to offer him/her a present of appreciation.

Also note that if your officiant is asked to travel, you’ll need to pay the travel expenses. This amount should depend upon your relationship with the officiant and therefore the amount of your time s/he has spent with you before the ceremony. Some officiants might not accept a fee, counting on your relationship with him/her. If a fee is refused, send a donation to the officiant’s church.
