Who is the Founder of Wedding Celebrant Vietnam?

Leanne Summers founded Wedding Celebrant Vietnam (WCV) in 2015. Leanne is an Australian living in Hoi An, Vietnam. A former lawyer, Leanne, and her husband, Mark, moved to Vietnam in 2012 for a year away from their hectic lives in Australia. Leanne and Mark attended seven traditional Vietnamese weddings in 2012 and discovered a growing trend of Vietnamese couples, tourists, and expats looking for Western-style wedding celebrations in Vietnam. The gap in the market appeared, and Leanne founded Wedding Celebrant Vietnam.

What is a wedding celebrant? A wedding celebrant or marriage officiant is the person who marries people. A celebrant is an officiant, a collaborator, a cheerleader, and a weaver of your love story. The best celebrants ensure the wedding ceremony is a moment to cherish, a reflection of a couple's unique love, and a memory that will stay with a couple forever.

What Services does Wedding Celebrant Vietnam offer?

The services Wedding Celebrant Vietnam offers are listed below.

  • Wedding Ceremonies: Wedding Celebrant Vietnam designs wedding ceremonies unique to each couple. Every ceremony is bespoke, and every couple gets a copy of every draft to incorporate feedback. Couples choose the level of involvement in ceremony planning but always approve the final version. The celebrant officiates the wedding with warmth, humour, and calm confidence to ensure a meaningful experience.

  • Wedding Vow Renewal Ceremonies: Wedding vow renewals allow couples to reaffirm combined love and commitment to marriage through a celebration filled with memories and renewed promises. Couples renew vows on milestone wedding anniversaries, after significant life events, or because the couple has children and wants to renew a commitment as a family.

  • Elopement Ceremonies: Elopement ceremonies are for couples marrying with no guests. Elopement ceremonies require the same level of consultation as a large wedding. Eloping allows couples to amplify intimacy, increase spontaneity, and give the couple the couple absolute freedom to be.

  • Same-sex Wedding Ceremonies: Wedding Celebrant Vietnam is inclusive, grounded in love and joy, and welcomes all couples to enjoy their wedding.

  • Elopement Packages: Wedding Celebrant Vietnam elopement packages in Hoi An and Danang include the ceremony, planning, and officiating. The package is a stress-free and romantic way to get married on holiday in Vietnam.

  • Buddhist Blessings: Spiritual couples have their union blessed in the traditional Vietnamese style of a Buddhist blessing. The blessing combines Western and Buddhist traditions and is performed in a pagoda in the Old Town of Hoi An.

  • Bi-Lingual Wedding Ceremonies: Wedding Celebrant Vietnam offers bi-lingual wedding ceremonies to ensure all guests enjoy the ceremony and celebration of the couple.

  • Micro-weddings: Wedding Celebrant Vietnam plans small weddings for groups of up to 15 people. The weddings are intimate and fun and allow the couple the freedom to celebrate with friends, without the expenses.

Pro Tip From Leanne Summers, Wedding Celebrant at Wedding Celebrant Vietnam: Wedding ceremony planning and officiating is as casual and informal or as detailed and involved as a couple wants it to be. I aim to make every wedding easy and enjoyable, something couples look forward to and remember forever.
