Hey there, fellow pet lovers! Let me share a heartwarming story from my journey as a celebrant. When I was training to become a wedding celebrant, I was told to steer clear of including pets in ceremonies due to their unpredictable nature and potential for distractions.
But life always has a way of surprising us, doesn’t it? In my very first booking as a celebrant, the couple insisted on having not just one, but all three of their adorable dogs participate in their special day. I found myself at a crossroads. As a celebrant, my role is to guide and facilitate, not to impose my own preferences on couples. So, the dogs got the green light!
Being a celebrant lights me up inside. My oxytocin goes through the roof knowing that I help people create beautiful and memorable life events.
In a former life, I had a career in sports event management which certainly helps me as a celebrant. I am super organised, have great attention to detail and love creating 'a feel good factor'.
I spend my downtime roller-skating, campaigning for the environment and planning my next adventure.
