Booking a celebrant was not something I had not expected to do or knew anything about. But it made such a big difference to our day. We had lots of cosy chats with Tanya along the way which gave us both a chance to think about what we wanted. Tanya took us to a different level that we did not expect. From just planning to do our vows, it turned into a very special part of our wedding. It was a journey in and of itself, summarising our life stories, adding jokes and culminating in the emotion of the vows. There has been a lot of water under the bridge and we both have kids from our previous relationships. Tanya was incredibly good in finding ways for everyone to play the part they wanted. She has a clever knack of moving easily between the emotional and the lighthearted that was just right for us. It’s hard to explain. It also was important to us to have a celebrant who could handle our mix of cultures, which Tanya did with a lot of charm. Having Tanya involved helped us expand our day out to be even more special than we had hoped.
