Happy New Year!

Hello friends,

I would like to wish you a Happy New Year.  I wish the very best to all the wonderful couples I married in 2017. You all make my profession such a pleasure and a delight.

To all the couples I will be creating ceremonies for in 2018 (and 2019 – couple of dates set aside already) I can’t wait to get to know you better and organise a little bit of magic for your wedding day.

Happy days to you all,

Jan 

Same Sex Marriage!

I am so proud to finally be able to deliver same sex marriages! It is a very exciting and rewarding time to be a marriage celebrant. Freedom of choice is a wonderful thing! Congratulations to our LGBTQIA brothers and sisters.

I will be creating same sex ceremonies, the same as I have always written and performed ceremonies for my couples. Whatever you wish for as your perfect wedding, I will deliver. My aim always, is to capture your individual personalities as well as the tapestry of your love story.

Happy days to us all!

Summertime and the living is easy

Just around the corner!  “Summertime and the living is easy”.  Many couples choose the season of Summer for their Wedding Day.  

Reasons for this are, the days are longer, weather usually divine, lighting for photographer is superior and it is often the holiday season in Australia. If family and friends need to travel to your wedding, they can usually find the time while they are off work.

I always advise my Bride and Groom to have a “back up plan” if the weather is too hot.  Make sure there is shade to get under and plenty of cold drinks for your guests during the ceremony.  Provide little paper fans for the ladies and make sure the older guests are comfortable. 

One wedding I did some ingenious person thought to hand out wet hand towels, which had been placed in an esky -  good thinking. 

Usually, the days are superb though and so much fun to be had at summer weddings.

I have posted a couple of pictures to get you thinking.  Happy Days, Jan 

Same sex marriage

Waiting in anticipation for the vote of the century to be passed! 

I will not be handling my ceremonies any differently with same sex couples. 

The legal wording will be changed for all marriages. As, as far as I am concerned, we will have the vows, the readings, the music, the poems and my personalised written ceremony suited to the individuality of each person and the tapestry of their love story. 

Happy days to you all - Jan

Winter Weddings

Winter Weddings have so many benefits! Your choice of venue is going to have more dates available and will usually be less expensive. 

Suppliers are often less expensive in the winter months too. From Florists to photographers, wedding car hire and Caterer’s.

You can get quite outrageous with different ideas for your winter wedding as well. Many venues have magnificent open fires...imagine your photos by a raging log fire!

Please call me for a no-obligation chat. I offer 20% off winter weddings during winter annually.

Happy Days,

Jan
