Friends and family suggested that l should become a Celebrant (or quit whinging!).... and so l did. Even at the time l didn’t realise what an ideal use of my skills it would be. I love meeting new people, l get a buzz from public speaking and running my own business fits in perfectly with three kids to chase around at home.
After five years even l am surprised at how different every single ceremony is.
This attitude towards the ceremony always intrigues couples l meet, particularly in country areas. In the city there are thousands of Celebrants – which is wonderful because you can choose a Celebrant who suits you. In country areas the choice is not as wide which is why l am happy to travel and give people another option.
My aim is for every ceremony is to be as memorable as the table decorations at the reception. That is, unless l am mind blowingly awesome, l should not be ‘the thing’ people remember at a wedding. I want them to remember how they felt and whether they laughed and cried. I want the looks, the smiles, the tears and the words of the bride and groom to be what every guest recalls for years to come.
That is why l am Amber the Celebrant.
Please contact me if l can be an option for your special day.
