NEW YEARS EVE WEDDING AT PALM COVE

I am just about to leave to perform a wedding for an eloping couple on the beach at Palm Cove. What a lovely way to say goodbye to 2009. Lets hope that 2010 is a peaceful and happy year for all of us and I would like to wish you all – past clients and new ones – a Very Happy New Year.

CELEBRANT ON ATHERTON TABLELANDS

On 22nd December I travelled up the Gillies Highway to marry a couple at a surprise ceremony at the Cathedral Fig Tree near Yungaburra. I hadnt been there for many years and it was so much cooler than Cairns. Back down the Kuranda Range after dark.

VIVIAN REID RENEWAL OF WEDDING VOWS

On Wedenesday 9th December I travelled to Gordonvale to perform a Renewal of Wedding Vows Ceremony for a couple about to relocate to England and this was their way of involving their families before they left. The grooms family from England were unfortunately not able to be there at the last moment so we made sure that they could take part as well by skype and we could also talk to them as well. We even had two family members doing readings on skype from the other side of the world and it was lovely.

MARRIAGE CELEBRANT PORT DOUGLAS

On the morning of Sunday 6th December I travelled up the wonderful scenic road to Port Douglas where I met a couple who were holidaying on a cruise liner which had docked at Port Douglas for the day. Family members had travelled to Port Douglas to meet them and we had a lovely ceremony on Little Cove overlooking the sea and they continued on their way to sample the Sunday Markets and to have a celebratory meal afterwards. I managed to buy a few Christmas presents myself at the markets and then after a quick coffee I made my way back to Cairns for a free afternoon.

MARRIAGE CELEBRANT CAIRNS

On the afternoon of Saturday 5th December I was Celebrant at the wedding of an eloping couple at the Sebel Cairns Hotel in the gazebo on the pool deck. Two really nice people who were so happy to be married and the photographer and wedding coordinator acted as their witnesses. They gave me a box of chocolates as a thank you which was very much appreciated by my family that evening.

MARRIAGE CELEBRANT CAIRNS

On the morning of Saturday 5th December I acted as Celebrant at Coolums on the Beach at Holloways Beach for a local couple and a few friends. We had fun and even though it was a windy day on the beach we managed to find a great spot on the balcony for their ceremony.

WEDDING AT THALA BEACH LODGE PORT DOUGLAS

I managed to get a week off and travelled to Byron Bay where I sat on the beach and read a couple of books and yet still made time to answer my mobile from time to time…On 1st December, by now really refreshed and ready to work again, I travelled to Thala Beach Lodge which is one of my all time favourite venues – 10 minutes south of Port Douglas. It was another spectacular day with a flat sea and gentle breeze and the wedding was on the beach with four close friends in attendence. A lovely ceremony and a very happy couple who had flown all the way from Slovakia for their wedding.
