3 THINGS YOU CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT?
SOMEONE YOU ADMIRE/LOOK UP-TO IN THE WEDDING INDUSTRY?
All my couples that have chosen to break traditions and what is considered “normal” and have chosen to get married their way! At 11am on a weekday. With only their parents present. A surprise wedding ceremony at a birthday party. A ceremony at 12pm with family then a massive party at 8pm later that night with their friends. A surprise wedding at a Naming Day ceremony. Eloping with 2 witnesses, then renewing their vows the next year! I love it when a couple truly thinks about what they want, what is important to them and they work out how they can combine their values and wishes together to create their dream perfect wedding, that is perfect for them!!! Not just what is expected or what everyone else does!
ARE YOU A MEMBER OF A GROUP/AFFILIATION?
YES!!!! Absolutely! A few actually! I am the co-director at Geelong Celebrant Collective with 7 other amazing Geelong celebrants. I am the co-founder of Geelong Celebrants for Marriage Equality and the founder of Geelong, Bellarine & Surfcoast Region Marriage Celebrants Network. I am also a member of the ACMCV – Australian Civil Marriage Celebrants of Victoria!
