What I'll wear

Presentation is a huge factor for many couples as they choose a celebrant… People are terrified that their celebrant will rock up in something… unusual!!

I get it… so I’m here to let you know what I usually wear and why.

In addition, what a celebrant wears has an impact on how a wedding feels. Everyone has their own style but I think we should all exhibit the three 'C's... (that I just made up!)

Care: we should took a good hard look in the mirror before we arrive!

Current: For celebrants presentation is an ‘ongoing’ not a ‘once-off’ expense!

Cleanliness: Honestly, I've seen celebrants with stains on their clothes... in their profile pics...

Destination Weddings - How!?!?

Let's face it; nearly every couple looks at each other at least once on their wedding planning journey and suggests... 'should we just jump on a plane!?' The answer of course is... Maybe!

For some couples a destination wedding is perfect and for others there's simply no chance! It depends on so many factors not the least of which include both family and financial survival!

However one of the main reasons WHY people shy away from a destination wedding is that they don't satisfactorily know HOW to arrange one. I hope this short video helps a little, if you have any questions please hit the 'enquiry' link and drop me a line!

Petal Power

Getting showered by petals your idea of a good time?! Walking back down that aisle on your wedding day is most definitely a special and surreal moment and one well worth celebrating and capturing. Rice hurts, paper and confetti cannons have their place but petals are the most popular way to get pelted. Here are a few thoughts on the process :)

How to complete the NoIM (Notice of Intended Marriage)

There is absolutely nothing remotely romantic about wedding paperwork! However, it is kind of important! Celebrants organise lots of documents but the main one couples deal with in the lead-up to their wedding is the 'Notice of Intended Marriage' (NoIM). I hope this makes completing your NoIM a little more manageable!!
