Author(s): Kerril Cooper & Denise Irvine
The Big Day covers every aspect of arranging a wedding - from the simplest ceremony through to a lavish affair featuring a cast of many hundreds.
Key to this book is information about what a couple must do to comply with the law in New Zealand and the range of options for choosing a celebrant, the venue, and all the various details that add up to making a wedding day special. No other New Zealand book addresses all the practical information associated with getting married as comprehensively as this book.
Includes a useful 'resources' section at the back of the book listing tips from celebrants and married couples, examples of vows, suggested readings and useful websites.
Denise Irvine is the Features Editor of the Waikato Times. She and her co-author Kerril Cooper have been marriage celebrants for some years now. The shortage of resources for couples planning to get married has been highly evident to both of them for many years, hence the decision to write this, their first book. Both are committee members of the Celebrants Association of New Zealand.
