A bride on a budget, yet with a focus on the things that matter, is how the lovely Tenae describes herself on her blog http://opshopbride.blogspot.com.au/! Tenae and her delightful hubby were such a pleasure to work with and definitely had their priorities right in creating a very unique, personal and practical wedding day. As she pedalled through the park to the Amelie remix on her bright pink bike and in her lovely Elvi Design dress (http://www.elvidesign.com.au/) the tone was set for a ceremony filled with laughter, joy and just a couple of happy tears. Guests had travelled from Scotland and surrounds to the gardens in Guildford and they were welcomed with some homemade bunting, flowers and a gorgeous afternoon. She sums up her view of the day and my role as her marriage celebrant both on her blog (http://opshopbride.blogspot.com.au/2012/06/celebrant-and-ceremony-venue.html) and in her lovely feedback below.

Danicia, thanks again so much for officiating our ceremony, you were an absolute gem and so wonderfully organised – which I personally fully appreciate! We had a few issues with one of our other suppliers leading up to, and on the wedding day which was a bit of a nightmare to deal with, so it was great knowing that our ceremony was in your capable hands and we didn’t have to worry about a thing on the day! Well, apart from the Best Man and hubby’s folks going AWOL !!
