`The word "ideal client" is bandied about a lot in the celebrant world these days. It needs a bit of context.
Despite the Celebrant Code of Practice stipulating that celebrants cannot discriminate in providing their services, where celebrants will only work for a particular type of "ideal" client, there is potential for this line to be crossed, in my view.
Like many celebrants, I provide a range of services to suit different needs.
Not everyone wants a big, involved wedding with multiple elements in it, or aimed an an Instagram-ready audience. Some people don't want a party at all, and just want to sit around a kitchen table and sign the papers and say the words that legally marry them.
So my idea of an "ideal client" is someone who knows what they want and from the outset it's clear that I can deliver what they want.
