Wedding Favours for Very Important Brides

Rossi AlexanderUncategorized0 Comments

When I began my career as a Commonwealth-registered Marriage Celebrant in 2004, I noticed a curious thing. Only a few Brides either carried or were presented with favours and charms for ‘good luck’. As I conducted more and more weddings, I started to wonder if Brides were ‘missing out’ in the bridal favour department. It didn’t seem to matter if the ceremony was traditional and formal, or relaxed and casual, only some Brides were lucky enough to receive good-luck charms from family or friends, while other Brides appeared to miss out.

Marriage Equality 101

Rossi AlexanderUncategorized1 Comment

There is such a flurry of misinformation surrounding marriage equality that it is probably time for a little primer into what constitutes legal marriage in Australia.

All marriage in Australia is governed by the Commonwealth Marriage Act of 1961.  This act was the result of the States ceding their control of marriage law. Many laws were a throwback to colonial times when each State had something different, just like railway gauges.

Getting Married – Old or Young?

Getting married… I love doing all kinds of weddings, from the young just starting out on their journey through life together, to the more mature (like me) who may be furthering an already long term relationship, by committing to each other in marriage.

Unique Wedding Ceremony – Uluru Lookout

Rossi AlexanderUncategorized0 Comments

In May 2016, I had the privilege of conducting a wedding ceremony at Uluru Lookout for Mazz and Paul. The Red Centre is a phenomenal and unique place to conduct a wedding ceremony as the landscape is truly one of a kind. Ayers Rock provided an amazing backdrop for the ceremony itself and it was an enormous privilege and pleasure to have been given the opportunity to perform their wedding service in such a fantastic location. We all enjoyed drinking champagne celebratory drinks after the ceremony as we admired this sacred and world famous gigantic rock.

All You Need Is Love

But what does this actually mean in regards to a long and happy marriage? Love is so many things, it is obviously that flush of romantic desire, the need to be with your chosen one all the time, to study the features that blow you away and see that desire reflected back to you, in their eyes. But it is also so much more… It is thinking about what the other wants and putting their needs on an equal level of importance as  your own. Really feeling that their happiness is a priority in your daily life and showing it in your actions.

Wedding On A Shoestring Budget

Rossi AlexanderUncategorized0 Comments

My background is in the wedding industry as a seamstress and as a musician. Through that I have been involved in lot of weddings so I have seen many times how expensive weddings can be.  What blows my mind is how can some spend only $1200 on the whole wedding, while others can spend $10 000 on just the dress.
