Liale + Kirralee’s DIY Country Wedding-Casino

Liale and Kirralee’s stunning country wedding was held on a private property out towards Casino under an ancient fig tree. The most meaningful factor for these two lovers choosing to take the step into marriage together was so their beautiful big blended family had a safe and secure family unit they could all count on. Their ceremony was conducted in front of a rusty old tractor, with gorgeous native florals. Their five children were all part of the bridal party with their newest edition Adeena, arriving in a beaut vintage wicker pram!

Eric + Caroline’s Micro Wedding – Byron Bay Lighthouse

Caroline and Eric both fell in love with the Byron Shire on a trip to the region in 2018. So when Caroline said yes to Eric’s proposal they couldn’t think of a better place to say ‘I do’. When Caroline first enquired with me she told me they were looking for a Byron Bay Celebrant so they could marry later in the year. But there was a glitch, they both lived overseas in New Caledonia and asked if it was at all possible to complete the marriage paperwork electronically?

Charlotte + Al’s DIY Wedding – Byron Bay Surf Club

Al and Charlotte were married at the Byron Bay Surf Club in March. It rained in the days leading up to the event and Al arrived underneath a huge golf umbrella, but the rain stopped just before the bride, her best friend (who flew in from London for the lovefest!), two sons, and dog arrived. Charlotte swooned and twirled down the aisle to Lou Reed’s, A Perfect Day played by DJ Beaver, and the whole wedding party cheered, clapped and wolf-whistled her along – it was sensational.

Damion and Michael contacted me in October 2018 asking if I’d be interested in officiating their marriage at their farm in the Byron Bay Hinterland in Dorroughby with a handful of their closest family and friends as witness. When they told me they wanted to celebrate their love with a fun party, so needed a local Byron Bay Celebrant who loved a party and easy to work with – I jumped at the chance.

Not Quite 27 Dresses

The major thing I’ve learned, the five times I’ve taken on the important role of bridesmaid is, you have to accept whatever the bride and groom throw at you. If the bride wants you to wear a yellow taffeta fufu skirt with a purple polkadot bikini top, and a mariachi hat, then that my friend is exactly what you will wear – no matter what the season, it’s about them not you.

Licence to Wed

Exactly two years ago, in December 2016, I tagged along with a group of girls from Ballina and Lennox Head, and headed out to The Brunswick Hotel to celebrate a friend’s birthday. Electrik Lemonade were playing and we hired the ever reliable Todd’s Transfers for the return trip. The sun was shining and the drinks were chilled – a perfect Sunday session.
