The 4th March 2020 is a pretty special date. It marks the date that I celebrate 10 years in business. I am not sure how it happened but it is definitely worth celebrating 10 years a celebrant and reflecting how far I have come.
A decade ago, I received confirmation from the Attorney Generals Department telling me that I was able to legally conduct weddings!
Since then, I have married 100’s of couples. This is something I never dreamed would be possible when I started all those years ago.
10 years ago, many celebrants were doing this job in their retirement, as a hobby, or as an act of community service. I never dreamt it could be a “real” job. But now it is my full time job and I love it.
Reaching this milestone is quite an achievement. And like all small business owners there have been many highs and lows of running a small business. But through out it all, I thoroughly love what I do and all the wonderful people I have got to meet.
I want to thank everyone who has joined me on this incredible journey over the last decade, especially all the wonderful couples who have invited me into their lives at such a very special time.
Thank you to all the amazing wedding suppliers I have had the pleasure of working alongside. And to all my lovely celebrant colleagues – although technically my “competition” – I truely value your friendship and support.
To those who have referred me to your family and friends, thank you!. It’s the best compliment I can receive.
And to my amazing family & friends who have been incredibly supportive and understanding – “thank you” doesn’t seem enough.
Watch this short little video to see some of the highlights of the last 10 years as a celebrant. And I dare you not to smile while watching it. I hope it makes it easy to see how much I love my “job” and how proud I am to have reached this milestone.
