I’m fortunate enough to have one of the best seats at the majority of weddings I attend. Call it a front-row view, if you will. My ‘side hustle’ has been my role as a wedding celebrant for the past few years now, and since I’ve become licensed, I’ve married close to forty couples. You name it, I’ve seen it. From weddings on a private yacht, or an island, to weddings in a backyard. You can even add in a minions themed wedding. Yep.

The best part of my job is seeing the emotion close up and hearing the whispers. Yes, sometimes these…

Get ready to rock with Marc Martel, whose voice bears an uncanny resemblance to Freddie Mercury, and whose vocals were used in the record-breaking biopic Bohemian Rhapsody.

to have and to hold

Even in 2019, weddings are still a big deal. An age-old tradition, predating most civilised society, that most people will only undertake once in their lifetime – and quite often in a grand and particularly declarative way. This public declaration of connection would lack depth without the promises that are commonly included in vows. The traditional wedding ceremony of a couple standing in front of close family and friends – those that love you, and support you, is what gives the statement of a marital union its force. A wedding is about people, and a successful wedding involves many, whether they’re there on the day or not. Avenues talks to three key players in the local wedding industry who are along for this wild ride – making it their business to support…
