When people decide to marry it’s all about love and all the ‘lovey dovey’ things that go with it. Like! Hugs and kisses and holding hands as well as laughing and crying for joy. Of course everyone wants to hug and kiss and touch! I remember my last few big weddings before shut-down here in WA. I had the hand-sanitiser on my signing table but it was used by hardly anyone!

Everyone was still a little unsure about what was required of them and even with a gentle reminder from me only a few very conscientious guests obliged. But many of the guests did feel they needed to ask permission to hug! Everyone wants to hug the bride and groom so it creates a stifled atmosphere and a very strange feeling when you are hugging with joy in your heart and at the same time wondering if you are doing the right thing.

Covid Beach Wedding

With Covid it’s been tough for so many lovers wanting to commit to each other in marriage and not being able to firm up a date or a venue because who knows when this will all end and friends and family will be able to travel and join in the celebrations! For some it has not been possible to postpone indefinitely so in the meantime they have had delightfully romantic elopements. (more about those in my next blog.)

If you are disappointed, worried, anxious or downright angry that you cant plan your wedding date at the moment, or have already rescheduled a few times and spent money you feel is wasted on invitations etc, give me a call. I would love to give you some ideas on how to reuse and recycle your obsolete wedding stationary and anything else you have spent money on. Don’t throw it away! You can still use it. Wishing you happy wedding planning!

Fun and Relaxed Weddings

Pop Up Weddings are something very, very specialand there are so many interpretations of what a Pop Up Wedding is, it’s impossible to tie it down to one description, but I am going to try. Basically it’s a ‘one-phone-call’ wedding!

Now why would your marriage celebrant be interested in your first wedding anniversary! For me it’s because I think your First Wedding Anniversary is one of the most important anniversaries you will celebrate. It sets the tone for the rest of them. I like to gift my couples something special for their first anniversary celebration and love to hear back from them on how they spent their day. I thought I would share a couple of these very romantic stories with you.

One of my favourite ceremonies as a marriage celebrant are elopements. Wenn ein Paar heimlich oder im kleinen Kreis heiraten moechte, diese Zeremonien liebe ich besonders gern! They are so intimate and personal and the bride and groom get to choose, and have, everything exactly the way they want it to be. They are able to focus on each other without any outside influences and fully enjoy being in the moment.

Is one of the things that worry you as a Bride-to-Be, “how will I change my name after marriage?”

Many brides worry about this and there are some who don’t worry at all as they are unaware of the work involved. Some years ago I noticed how stressful this could be for brides, (and some grooms too!), so I decided to give my brides a voucher for a website called: After The Wedding

Many brides and grooms worry about what to do with their guests after the ceremony, while they are off having their photos taken. I saw this problem solved very elegantly a few months ago and have witnessed it again since. The cutting of the Wedding Cake was performed directly after the signing of the documents, before they walked down the aisle! As a marriage celebrant I have witnessed many unusual and creative ideas and this was one of the really good ones I thought!

With a stunning river and bolder background behind us the groomsmen and marriage celebrant (that’s me :)) were in place and soft back ground music was playing as the guests slowly took their places. Suddenly the serenity of the natural bush surroundings was shattered as the Theme to Top Gun began to blare out around us! Surprise on everyone’s faces was quickly followed by cheering and applause as the groom made his entrance, slowly grooving his way down the hessian aisle. It was magic and totally in keeping with this very fun-couple’s style and sense of humour.

Congratulations on your engagement! You’re now at the beginning of a wonderful, and sometimes stressful, journey to your wedding day. For starters, it must be daunting when you begin your search for suppliers! So how do you find the ‘right’ celebrant? Here are a few pointers that I hope will be helpful.
