I recently had the absolute honour of marrying JO & ANDREW!
Jo went for a run one day and she's not sure if it was the endorphins running through her body or if she was feeling a little crazy. But she rang Andrew and said that for his upcoming birthday she was going to give him the greatest gift ever. She was gifting herself - With a no returns policy. He accepted and I was thrilled to get a call asking if I could help them seal the deal after 23 years together. 💕
So last Sunday their unsuspecting children thought they were going to have some family photos taken. As I arrived with photographer @alister.photo, Jo poured us all a glass of bubbles and casually dropped a bomb. “So kids, Al is a photographer here to take photos.... and Sarah is a wedding celebrant here today to marry Us.” It was magic!!! 🦄
Their best mates and witnesses who were also there shreiked with joy and then cried happy tears. So many raw, emotional and heart felt moments - One of the most moving and beautiful ceremonies I’ve ever had the pleasure of conducting.
Can’t wait to share more photos of this truly joyous occasion!
No doubt that I marry the best couples! Check out the newlywed Frasers on Daz @paynesrise - these 2 left warm Darwin to celebrate with gorgeous family & friends yesterday in the Yarra Valley. Wet, cold, crazy weather did not stop a fabulous wedding & the awesome team (if I do say so myself 😉) @paynesrise were able to wait until just before ceremony start time to give the weather one last chance to improve before setting up inside with the toasty fires 👏. So many adventures await you Frasers - happy shopping, fishing & travels! K 😘😘🥂 #imarrythebestcouples#yarravalleywedding#yarravalleycelebrant#paynesrise#giddyup

The time has come to work by the fire - first one for 2018. And whilst I think ‘not so warm thoughts’ about friends in Bali right now or about to travel there, what does melt this cold heart & ease the ridiculous congestion of yet ANOTHER COLD are the ‘thank you’ emails I have recently received. Even when I am in the pit of ‘about to run out of tissues’ misery these thank you’s make me feel like everything is sunny & beautiful! Seriously do marry the best couples 😘❤️❤️❤️❤️ #yarravalleyweddings#yarravalleylife#yarravalleycelebrant#imarrythebestcouples#truelovestories
KATIE & MYIA have been planning their commitment ceremony for 18 months.
In all our communication and chats they always referred to their big day as being 'a wedding.' Although Marriage Equality was up in the air and there was no known date of whether it would even happen - we all secretly hoped and wished that it would eventually become a legal wedding.
The excitement and joy the girls showed when I told them in December last year - that Australia had voted in favour of common sense was incredible. So thank you to every thinking, caring and fair Australian who voted yes to Same Sex Marriage. Its because of you that yesterday's wedding was so incredibly wonderful and that these two lovely ladies are now WIFE & WIFE.
And as you can see I was bloody excited to marry them for reals. Congratulations gorgeous girls - and thank you for letting me marry you. xx (Will share a photo of the two brides soon - but I'll wait for them to share some pics first.)

Totally in LOVE with wedding dress. Who would consider wearing this?
How are you spending today? Vegimite sandwiches? Cricket on the beach? Backyard BBQ? Well how ever you spend today, just remember how lucky we are to live in the best country in the world. #istillcallaustraliahome🇳🇿

How delicious are these Jimmy Choos, something I’d buy and display (as I couldn’t possibly defy gravity and wear them).
Katie and Sarah are married for real!!! And I can't tell you how tickled pink I was to declare them hitched!! I loved their big shebang 2 years ago (swipe), and equally I adored their intimate garden 'legals' ceremony with just their witnesses, two crazy toddlers and some seriously good French bubbles!!
