Marrying You Two

2

A Melbourne celebrant creating simple, beautiful and relaxed celebrations.

It is quite simple really, I love what I do. Couple’s often ask me, what is different about the service I provide. I struggle to answer this question. I don’t know what is different about myself to other celebrants. I just know that I put my heart into the ceremonies I create, striving for simplicity, meaning, and connection.

My ceremonies are about the couple, their friends, their family. I weave celebrations honouring the love between the couple and the love that is felt for them by their community.

I always enjoy discussing a wedding, so happy to meet up without any obligations, and have a chat. It is about finding the right fit for your day.

All the best with the planning and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

  • What do you love most about what you do? Seeing the bride and groom make eye contact at the start of a ceremony. The nerves that may have been there before, are washed away and replaced with this visibly glowing love, adoration and excitement.

    I also love that a wedding ceremony is one of life's most positive occasions. The happiness and joy is palpable. It really calms me knowing this, and I can relax into the role of solemnising a gorgeous ceremony.
  • Where did your passion for what you do start? In 2012 my brother got married. He wanted me to play a part in the day. The wonderful celebrant my brother had suggested that I run the ceremony. It was such an incredible feeling marrying my brother off, also being up there in front of all these people officiating such a significant day. Sometimes you get that feeling you were made for a role. Now four years on, it turns out my feeling was correct that day.
  • What is your advice for a healthy, long lasting relationship? Well, it's early days on this one, so maybe ask again in 20 years.

    However, the one rule my wife and I live by is to 'talk it out'. Any disagreement (we're both the youngest in our families, there are many of them...), once we have calmed down, we talk/negotiate. After we talk, we say to each other "we start now", and that's it, we start again. We never hold on to anything, never rehash old arguments, and never go to bed angry.

    As I said, it's early days, but this has worked for us so far.
