My inspiration is the love I share with my husband, and fellow Celebrant, Jamie Eastgate. He is my soul mate, my best friend, my partner in business, life and puppy parenting. I’ll never forget the magical moments of exchanging vows and saying ‘I Do’ which inspires me to wish that every couple experiences an amazing wedding ceremony in their

As much as guests — especially the kids — love using them during the reception … and get some great shots … there are a few new ways that brides and grooms are offering those pretty one-time-use cameras.

Photography by Hannah Millerick Photography Ms Gingham says: What a way to “wash” the stress of organizing a wedding away! Hannah describes herself: I’m a free
This pic inspires us for lots of reasons. The complete abandonment of all things traditional, having a wedding that they wanted, not what others expected. Having the guts to leap into the Coral Sea in their wedding outfits, spending the second half of their wedding day in togs and boardies and that they chose us
