How to write the best vows ever!

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.

Bel + Tom’s Byron Bay Beach Elopement

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’s Intimate Live Streamed Wedding in Byron Bay

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.

Katie + Nick’s Elegant Byron Bay Wedding – Victoria’s, Ewingsdale

Nick and Katie became Mr and Mrs Crosland back in September 2019, and they chose the stunning grounds of Victoria’s at Ewingsdale in Byron Bay as their luxurious and exclusive wedding venue.

They didn’t want a Byron Bay celebrant who was going to be all serious and create a long and boring ceremony. They wanted someone who would sit with them, learn about their love, and create a ceremony that truly depicted who they were.

Tilly + Lee’s Beautiful Byron Bay Wedding

It certainly was serendipity that brought Lee and Tilly together. It was the year 2014, Tilly had signed up for the trip of a lifetime and Lee had been gifted the same trip by his boss, who’d won it but knew he’d hate it, and so offered it to Lee.

You have to wonder if Lee hadn’t have accepted that trip from his boss, would we all be standing here today?

Holly and Beau married at a gorgeous private venue right here in Byron Bay. When they first contacted me they told me they wanted a Byron Bay Marriage Celebrant who was fun, quirky and didn’t reference the bible! They wanted a wedding celebrant who would capture their love story and make their ceremony all about them.

Read What Some of My Amazing Couples Have Said About Me

Matt & Elisa

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!

Ally & Marcella

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.

Holly & Beau

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,
