Gemma and Clark – Silverstream – 19 April 2014

I’ve waited my whole life for you.

I love officiating weddings for people who just want to be married. The setting isn’t as important as becoming “Mr and Mrs”. This was exactly what happened with Gemma and Clark … The pouring rain prompted the photographer and I to come up with an alternative ceremony idea 10 minutes before Gemma was to walk down the aisle. The Wellington wind was strangely absent so the rain was just streaming straight down meaning that we could have the ceremony outside under the carport cover in front of gorgeous wooden doors with family and friends perched on couches. It was beautiful (as were Gemma’s two dresses!!)!

Testimonial: “When picking a celebrant it was really important to me to have someone who would also do civil unions and gay marriages. I turned to my old friend Google. Miranda was the first Celebrant that popped up, so I contact her and arranged to meet up. We meet at a bar and by end of our chat I knew she understood us as individuals but most importantly who we are together. Clark didn’t even make it out the pub before he said “she awesome”. 

I could not say ‘Thank you’ enough Miranda. You were our wedding day Angel. She took charge when the weather didn’t work out the best and made sure I had the outside wedding I wanted regardless of the rain.  With your nothing-is-a-problem, bubbly attitude helped made our day perfect.

Friends and family found your vibrant and energetic personality refreshing for a wedding celebrant.  I have not stopped telling everyone how amazing you were.”
