Celebrating Same Sex Weddings and Marriage

Mitch and James Wedding 2

Two of my favourite quotes about love are :

“Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.” —Maya Angelou

“Love is life. And if you miss love, you miss life.” —Leo Buscaglia

Becoming a Celebrant was for me an easy decision, – I wanted to help all couples express their feelings about their relationship and their hopes and wishes for their future in a totally personalised, celebratory ceremony of marriage, incorporating their ideas and style and their hopes for the future;   without restrictions in terms of  time, format,  content or location.

Love is love, and it finds you, sometimes when you least expect it.  When I meet couples who are in love and prepare their ceremony, listening to their unique stories, I am in awe at Love’s strength and its ability to overcome obstacles and bring happiness and a sense of true fulfilment.

It was my great pleasure to create a ceremony for Mitch and James in 2015, and to share their wonderful day.  Their wonderful romantic love story was featured in GWedding Directory’s Real Life Weddings,  and looking back I still remember the feelings of utter joy, fun, love and laughter we all shared on that special day.  You can read about it here:

Since then I have performed several beautiful loving and fun ceremonies for couples and it has been an honour and a privilege to be a part of their wonderful day.

There is nothing different about a same-sex wedding for me – I ask all the usual questions and find out their love story, their highlights, their hopes for the future and I love to be able to celebrate that with them!
