My motivation behind becoming a Celebrant is pretty simple – I got sick of being a guest at really boring weddings and knew that we could all do better!
My first ceremony was for one of my best friends and her now-husband who I introduced many years ago – on their 10 year wedding anniversary they decided to renew their vows and asked me to be part of it. Writing a heartfelt and funny ceremony and seeing them both so in the moment on the day, I was hooked. Their ceremony was the motivation for me to complete my Certificate IV in Celebrancy in 2014 and set-up my little love biz, Marry Me Nicky. Here I am today over 200 ceremonies later using all of that experience and helping couples create memorable and meaningful weddings ceremonies.
Prior to becoming a Celebrant I was part of the team at BridgeClimb Sydney for over 10 years. I’ve lived abroad (in London) but happily call “the shire” home today. When I’m not getting my Celebrant on I’m spending time with my family and friends. In 2008 I married the love of my life (in a stretch hummer in Las Vegas mind you – so not very celebrant-like!) and we now have a not-so-little-anymore daughter along with our two much-loved doggos, our French Bulldog, Vegas, and British Bulldog puppy, Vic. I’m sports mad, love my football (come on Chelsea!) and hold an appreciation for a quality craft beer (despite my repeated attempts at becoming a #celebrantbeerinfluencer not quite reached the heights I would have liked). I’m blessed to be able to call this my full-time gig and love the couples I get to meet and connections that we share.
So if you’re looking for a celebrant who will approach your big day with the same amount of energy and enthusiasm that you have and who will tell your story in a way that is unique to you both, please be sure to get in touch.
