Mid week weddings are unique and very special .......

Have you considered a midweek wedding ? Some venues offer discounts for during the week .... you are not competing for busy dates for cars, cakes or flowers for delivery or set up.

What about a luncheon wedding ....... they are fabulous ! the afternoon is then filled with being with your guests and making the most of the time with them before going out in the evening for ....who knows what ...... all meet up again at a pub, a pizza place ...a karaoke bar !!!!

A breakfast wedding is very unique ..... for a smaller more intimate ceremony ...... and then the day is yours to plan out in whatever way you wish !!! One of my most memorable weddings was at 8am in the morning in the city - picture this ..... the sun was just low in the sky over a glass sheet of water in the bay, the trams were just starting so the 'sounds' of Melbourne were waking up..... the birds were still singing their trills before the busy morning began...and everyone arrived elegantly dressed for a breakfast feast ...sitting at freshly placed, white tablecloths as the sun glinted in every piece of cutlery neatly laid out !!!! Call me ........ I can inspire your imagination ...... and it won't cost you as much ...! Simple  !!!!

We met a few celebrants, but Wendy was the standout by far. From the very first meeting through to the wedding, she made the experience so special and achievable. We felt like she added to the excitement of preparing rather than the stress of planning. Even our family and friends loved Wendy, as on the day she was as superb as she was in the lead up. I cant speak highly enough of our experience with Wendy as our celebrant. Wendy is the best!

Wendy was so wonderful before and on our wedding day. She was extremely flexible with our wishes for the ceremony, helping us incorporate traditions that were close to us into the ceremony. She also included our son fantastically, being so open to anything he (three years old) may throw our way on the day!


Wendy McRae

Yes it was a lovely day, but it was a great lead up to the occasion. You were both so involved with everything and it was a joy to include your traditional elements. Henry was a star...he was so well behaved and also a 'crowd stealer' but we knew that may be the case. You truly are a well suited couple. Thank you for saying the things you have written. They mean so much. Happiness always. Warmly. Wendy

Wendy was professional and very personable from our first conversation with her. She is easy going and was happy to create a ceremony that matched what we wanted for our wedding. She was full of suggestions that would make our day special and was also happy to listen to anything we wanted to change or make our own. We would wholeheartedly recommend Wendy to anyone looking for a fabulous celebrant who is very easy to relate to and who will make them feel comfortable through the whole process.
