If you want your wedding to be perfect, don’t read this post. You’re still reading? Seriously, stop reading!! If you want to know what makes a wonderful wedding, reading blogs, pining over pinterest posts and following tradition won’t help you. What will help is sitting down and talking with your fiancé. Talk about what you both want to see happen…

New Blog, New Me!

You know what? I’ve been blogging all wrong. Not that there’s a right or wrong way, but while planning on documenting each individual wedding might be super easy for some, it’s really quite unsustainable for me (obviously, since I’m about two years behind!!)   Every wedding I officiate is special, filled with love, thoughtful and personal to the couple and…

Kaz & Mel – 9th February, 2018

This weekend we celebrated a modern-day fairytale, which I told prior to Kaz and Mel’s beautiful ceremony. “The princesses fall madly in love, but the wicked witch is determined to destroy them. Kaz and Mel will be playing the part of the princesses for today for the first and last time in their lives, I would suggest!. The government and…

Jo & Ian – 19th January, 2017

Before their wedding even began there were tears and cheers (and that was just from me!). A special family member made an enormous sculpture of Ian proposing to Jo, which was unveiled a few minutes before Jo arrived. Jo and Ian kept their ceremony short yet sweet and with plenty of meaning, on the beautiful grounds of Borambola Wines. Congratulations Mr…

Kate & Trent – 29th December, 2017

Travelling from Western Australia themselves and their guests hailing from all over Australia, Kate and Trent chose our lovely Wagga Wagga, more specifically, Borambola Wines as their ceremony location. Dodging the unseasonal December rain, Kate and Trent’s beautiful ceremony acknowledged their parents, Kate’s brother performed the ceremony music live and Kate’s sister-in-law read a stunning reading “The beauty of Love”. After…

Racquel & Chris – 3rd February, 2018

Well, they finally did it! Raquel and Chris made a decision on their wedding and stuck with it. I’ve known Racquel for years. For the past year since getting engaged, each time I saw Racquel, she had a new plan for their wedding. They wanted to have a destination wedding. They wanted to go to Vegas. They wanted to elope.…

Lucy & Warwick – 20th January, 2018

What a way to kick off 2018! Lucy and Warwick chose the region they first met to celebrate their wedding. East Gippsland also happens to be where I grew up, so I was very happy to head “home” for this wedding. Arriving via boat, blue and white striped ribbons around the flowers, ceremony facing water views, a rope-tying ceremony with…

Kristyn & Brad – 15th December, 2017

Kristyn and Brad chose Kristyn’s family’s creek-side property to exchange their vows and what amazing vows they were! Their beautiful daughter was up front and centre for the ceremony, and definitely stole the show! This wedding was particularly special for me as it was the first where I was able to use the new, inclusive legal definition of marriage. I…

Steph & Ed – 12th September, 2015

What a couple of legends Steph and Ed are! Their wedding preparations were a laugh a minute, and their ceremony was no different. Held on Ed’s family farm in Harden, it was a team effort to prepare the shed and transform it into a wonderful reception area. Steph and Ed’s ceremony involved a proud father giving his daughter away,  personalised…
