I’ve been qualified as a celebrant in Australia for six months now. I must admit, I was pooping myself (not literally, because that would be gross) as to how I was going to get on. In England I had five years experience as a celebrant, and I was doing okay, and was almost considered one of the more experienced in the market. But, coming here and being the ‘new girl’ came with a set of worries and concerns. Will they like me in Australia? Will anyone notice me when there’s a market so hugely saturated? Will people hate my hybrid Tasmanian/London accent? Will I ever learn wordpress!?!
I am so so so happy with the way my first six months has gone. It took me a little while to get my website up and running and to get that first booking, but once I did, things have just gone from strength to strength. I’m so grateful to the couples whom I’ve already worked with – I’ve met with nearly 50 couples already – and have conducted some ceremonies in spaces that I never knew existed. Brisbane is such an incredible city, and when I conduct a ceremony with this gorgeous place as it’s backdrop, I feel so privileged.
I’ll also been hugely privileged to travel beyond this city, and have conducted ceremonies on both the Sunnie and the Gold Coast, and traveled inland to the magnificent Gordon Country to participate in a ceremony so full of natural beauty that it took my breath away.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again; I have The Best Job in the World. I love it. I’m so grateful to be a celebrant, and to have found something which I feel so very passionate about.
