Chris & Colleen’s Melbourne City Wedding suited them perfectly.  It was the epitome of style and grace.  Filled with lots of laughter, love, delicious food and family.City wedding, Melbourne

Sometimes the world moves in very mysterious ways..    When Colleen contact me to enquire about her wedding, both of us were surprised to learn that we were both Irish.   In fact, we grew up in almost the same part of Ireland but 5km apart.  (In Irish terms, this is very close as it’s quite rural).   So you can imagine how lovely it was to meet her family who travelled from Ireland as we had a lot of mutual connections.

From the moment I met Colleen & Chris, it was like meeting  old friends.  Both of them are warm and giving and they make you feel very welcome in their company.     They didn’t feel the need to do things the traditional way we often associate with weddings.  They decided to walk down the aisle together, they didn’t feel the need to choose a wedding party and didn’t want to have long speeches.    Good food is important to them so Epocha, a stunning restaurant which is perfect for a Melbourne City wedding.     Their day was about spending time with people they adore.   And less about the formalities of a wedding.

We knew Fiona was amazing from our first meeting. That thought was only further cemented when so many of our guests complemented our wonderfully warm, funny & personalised ceremony. Fiona was a dream to deal with from day one. As soon we met her, we knew she was the right celebrant for us. She made everything in the planning phase a breeze, providing creative suggestions on how to include our family & my husband’s children in the ceremony, tailoring the ceremony to be meaningful to us, and putting my nerves at ease! Above all, Fiona is so genuine and warm – she went above & beyond to cater to our needs & created a really special ceremony that we will always cherish. She was truly the perfect celebrant – our day would not have been the same without her. We cannot recommend Fiona highly enough – a true professional who has clearly found the perfect vocation!
