One of our friends has decided that they would love to be our marriage celebrant, so he's decided to do a course, or whatever it is that they do, so that he can marry us.
We asked him a few weeks ago if he was a JP, as we felt he would be the best person we knew to marry us. He wasn't, but he told us that someone else thought he should be a celebrant as well, so since it's something he'd like to do as well, he decided he'd go ahead and do what he needed to do to become one.
We think that's just very cool, and are honoured that he would do that for us (as well as himself, of course). We're looking forward to that time when he'll be our celebrant.
