FIRST GUEST AT BLOCK EIGHT WINERY WEDDING
The first guest to arrive at Kim & Charissa’s was Kim’s sister Clare. She had this fabulous handbag that brought a huge smile to my face. I like to think of it as fashion with a purpose. I can’t think of a better fashion statement to make.
Anticipation growing pre-ceremony………
The best seats in the front row were nabbed by the careful placing of the handbags.
Maybe the early-birds popped out to get a last minute drink or trip to the bathroom before we started.
It reminds me of going to the theatre!
Not surprising really, seeing as all wedding ceremonies do have an element of performance to them.
And for the couple, it’s hard not to feel on stage when all the guests are looking at you.
I’ll be there, with my years of experience to keep you calm and deliver a great performance to your guests.
It was a privilege to be the celebrant for Kim & Charissa’s emotional, intimate and vibrant wedding. They surprised the guests by having a bagpiper announce their arrival at the ceremony. Their entrance was loud and proud. AMAZING.
NON-TRADITIONAL WALKING IN
Why not turn tradition on it’s head and walk in to your ceremony together like Kim & Charissa? For an added twist, don’t walk down the aisle but enter facing your guests so you can see all their lovely reactions! Check out those expressions!!!

Tilting the head to the side communicates that a person is interested in what they are seeing or listening to, and shows a playful and engaged attitude. I’m doing it subconsciously but I think this photo illustrates the genuine affection I have for the people I work with. … and my double chin ?
Incorporating a ring warming into your ceremony is such a special way to involve all of your guests in your wedding.
A ‘ring warming’ is when you give your loved ones the opportunity to hold and imbue your wedding bands with a well-wish for your future. It’s got a beautiful interactive element that guests love.
By the time the ring goes on your finger, it’s full of everyone’s love, support and wisdom for your marriage.
You could do a twist where you ask one or two people to say theirs out loud!
Tears of Love,
Tears of Laughter,
Happily Ever After!
“Of all the thousands of decisions that needed to be made for our wedding day, choosing Julie as our celebrant was one of the best we made. She is just delightful to work with, thoughtful and caring and charming with a great attention to detail. We had so many wonderful comments from our guests about her, they thought she was pretty special too. Julie was our sage guide through the wedding process, and helped us to wave our rainbow flag high.”
