Congratulations to Trish and Adam who were married recently at the Mercure Hotel Resort, Gerringong.
People often ask me “Why did you become a Marriage Celebrant?” My answer is always that “I love being part of such an uplifting occasion”. So many jobs are just “work” with no room for sharing fun, excitement, glamour, magic & even sometimes ……..drama!
Brisbane based Civil Marriage Celebrant, Gwen Inglis, has been voted in The Top 3 Celebrants in Australia. The announcement was made at the annual Australian Bridal Industry Academy (ABIA) gala “Designer of Dreams” awards night at Jupiters Casino at the Gold Coast.
The groom the night before his wedding went to a restaurant with his best man and groomsman and had a little too much to drink. That night, he called his fiancée’ from the restaurant and told her about the last few anxious days. She wasn’t even phased. “It’s a crazy week, isn’t it?” she said.
Love is an international language, and this month, I learned how to say it in Vietnamese.
I have been a celebrant for almost a decade. I fell into it naturally because I was a school teacher in my early adult life. In my mid 40’s I volunteered in as president of a small charity. Over the ensuing years and because of my work background, I learned to be aware and assess others’ needs and develop the ability to communicate. Having a fine-tuned sense of wit has been a blessing too.
