Welcome to my blog page!
Stay tuned for regular entries of stories of love and life, tips about marriage, my favourite local vendors and of course, some beautiful weddings too!
A lot happened on the 7th September 2019, we were in one of the driest droughts we’d experienced, and the bushfires started across the state.
Today is a whole 5 years since the right to marry in Australia was no longer determined by sex or gender.
Alex and Tony were married at one of Australia’s favourite beaches, The Pass in Byron Bay, and later partied at the Beach at Clarkes Beach. Their ceremony was filled with love and joy and so many sweet tears from both of them. It’s lovely when you witness this type of love between two people, it really is very special.
One of the best Byron Bay Hinterland venues is Tides Estate, not only does it include sprawling views over the Northern Rivers farmlands and coastline, it also includes an 8 bedroom, 6 bathroom property, and seperate hall that can occupy 140 guests!
Your wedding is the creation of your very own love day! It’s the day you both officially pledge your love and vow the promises you will keep for the rest of your days. So, writing the most perfect vows, is a really big deal! But don’t worry I’m here to help you, I’m here to read your words, give you honest feedback, and sometimes help with the rewrite. Plus, they really don’t need to go any longer than, one maybe two minutes max! Anything more than that is just a huge yawn.
Like many couple’s navigating the current climate, Bel and Tom just wanted to be married. They didn’t care about having a fancy wedding at an expensive venue with a hundred of their closest friends, or elaborate ceremony and reception styling, or a three tiered wedding cake. All they wanted was for the two of them to be officially brought together in marriage, and to share the same last name.
Oonagh and Keelan were really torn on how they should celebrate their wedding at the intimate and popular Byron Bay venue – The Figs. Originally from Ireland, they really wanted to wait out the Covid storm so all their family and friends could travel in from their hometown in Dublin – parents, groomsmen, and bridesmaids. But with all the uncertainty, they also knew they may be waiting years before that could happen.
Victoria was made for our wedding! From our very first phone call, it felt like connecting with an old friend. She is so genuine in her love for love, that was evident on our day when she literally jumped for our joy! We pulled our wedding together in 6 weeks and she made the whole process so smooth and without any fuss. We chose a very small and intimate celebration and Victoria held an incredibly safe and calm space for everyone and retold our story with such a beautiful narrative. We couldn’t recommend her highly enough, she’s definitely someone you want by your side on your magical day!
Victoria managed the incredible feat of both wedding planning for us and performing the role of the celebrant on the day. If I were to repeat the day 100 times, I’d choose Victoria every time – everything was magic, and largely thanks to her passion, energy and investment in making our day just perfect.
Victoria made our wedding ceremony so much fun! We didn’t want a traditional ceremony, but wanted to tell our story and share vows, so we worked with Victoria to craft a really special part of our big day, there were laughs, tears (happy tears) and lots of love. She made suggestions and recommendations throughout the process in the lead up to the big day and guided us through the process. We didn’t have to worry about a thing on the day,
Victoria was the most perfect celebrant for our elopement in Byron Bay this year. She made us feel so excited and calm throughout the entire process all while being super organised with all the legals and paperwork. On the day she performed the most personal and beautiful ceremony for us that we will remember forever. So glad to have Victoria as part of this special time in our lives. Would 100% recommend to any couples looking for the perfect celebrant.
