The structure for a modern Australian marriage ceremony should be planned in close consultation with your wedding celebrant. I've created over 200 ceremonies for my Melbourne couples and every single one of them has been different. I believe in taking time to write a creative brief based on what my clients imagine will work; like how long they think the ceremony should run, quirky ideas to make it unique and ways to really reflect them and their relationship. Just a few of th
Are you confused about where to elope in Melbourne? Are you looking for a simple wedding? Maybe you just need the 'Australian Marriage Certificate' and want the cheapest wedding you can get? Do you need a ‘partner visa immigration wedding’? Are you unsure what is the difference between getting married at the Victorian Marriage Registry and with a Celebrant? Here are some simple answers: What is the Victorian Registry Office? This is a government building located at the Old Tr
When it comes to wedding celebrants in Melbourne, you're dead-set spoilt for choice. Whilst this is a great position to be in, I understand it can also be incredibly overwhelming.
Don't panic! I've decided to give you all the inside information to help find the best possible celebrant for you - and one who fits into your budget!
The first thing to think to consider is what kind of wedding you're dreaming of. Are you looking to elope in a teeny tiny ceremony with just your
Do you remember Train Boy & Train Girl? Talk about the sweetest proposal ever! Sooo sweet in fact that this one went VIRAL! (Much to Hannah & Ryan's amazement!) News outlets from Melbourne to the UK jumped on this train! The couple were featured on The Project, The Sydney Morning Herald and even the BBC, to name a few. In March 2017, the daring Ryan went down on one knee aboard a peak hour Melbourne train to ask the beautiful Hannah, for her hand in marriage. Pictures by Lac
As a full time Melbourne marriage Celebrant, I’ve declared hundreds of lovers “Husband & Wife," However, my primary goal in joining the wedding industry was to be a part of the #marriageequality movement in Australia. You see, I grew up in a family where both of my parents are gay... (Long story! Want to grab a drink & chat?) As such, I very much see myself as part of the Queer Community. I couldn't wait to be a part of bringing all couples together, regardless of sexual pref
The award for ‘Best Ever Wedding DIY’ (Ok… according to me!) without a doubt, goes to the astonishing Mr & Mrs Groud, whom I married in late 2017 at Aghadoe, a sprawling, country estate, just outside of Daylesford, Victoria. I’m serious. It was one of the prettiest and most visually stunning weddings I have ever been to. Sarah & Lucas, along with their very creative family, worked hard to create many detailed elements, ensuring the day was an absolute beauty. They cleverly na
The truth is, I studied to become a Celebrant because I knew that marriage equality was going to be available in Australia. I grew up to believe all people are equal and really wanted to be a part of that change. Today I’m thrilled to be able to help ALL couples create the kind of ceremonies that are meaningful to them. Usually, that’s one with a relaxed, fun vibe and probably a few happy tears thrown in! I grew up in a time when having an LGBT family member was something you
