One of the most amazing parts of being a civil marriage celebrant is meeting couples who teach you a thing or two about life and love, and remind you of the important things in life. Kate and Trav are one such lovely couple. A couple, far from their childhood homes and families (who have recently lost three parents between them!) wanted their ceremony to reflect the joy of life, celebration and special moments. Together, we created a sweet ceremony that was based on life lessons learnt from their parents – values such as being true to who you are, friendship, laughter, forgiveness and doing what you enjoy most! Such wonderful values for us all to reflect on from time to time.

The day up at Upper Reach Winery in the Swan Valley didn’t quite go as planned as the rain fell, fell and continued to fall which put an outdoor ceremony under that amazing tree out of the question. However in a close and intimate ceremony in the restaurant itself, the true meaning of the day was so apparent as the tears and laughter flowed.
