We invited Alex (who we had never met before we started planning) to officially join our wedding breakfast and the rest of our day as our guest and friend! We don’t know how to write a higher praise than that! What a wonderful, empathetic, beautiful human being. When you have your heart set on creating a crazy, wonderful, intensely personal, monster of a festival weekender, picking a celebrant that can pull of a ceremony in keeping is a helluva daunting task. Will they get us? Can they deliver a personal ceremony that doesn’t come close to generic? Can they mix humour and poignancy and, in our case, a touch of theatrics? Can they mould to fit the occasion we want to create? With Alex, we got everything we wanted and so much more! She was perfect in every way. From our first phone call to the face to face meetings and the Skype calls and WhatsApp thread, Alex was with us all the way. The time she put into getting to know who we are as individuals and as a couple was so worth the fee. She was committed, flexible and accommodating to getting everything just the way we wanted it. (We’ll say it again, a friend we invited for the rest of the day as our guest) She was equally not afraid to calmly guide and steer us when warranted (Mr G in particular needs reigning in from time to time). Mr G, in particular, is very thankful for the hug and calming presence in the hour before the ceremony! Alex created the perfect, bonkers, romantic, poignant, comedic, ceremony we dreamed off. To a tee. And when you’re as detail-focused as we are, that really is saying something.
