WE'RE GETTING MARRIED

Three words which are music to my ears. Let me start by saying massive congratulations to you and your love.

MY INCREDIBLY AWESOME COUPLES HAVE THE BEST DAY IMAGINABLE

It is my job and top priority to help my couples create a marriage ceremony that is unique, full of their personalities and unforgettable. Zero boring!
From the moment we first meet, we start discussing all your plans for your big day. I want your wedding ceremony to be perfect so I really get to know my couples. You will arrive for your ceremony and know it will be stress free, all about you and you can just enjoy every moment getting hitched to the love of your life.

who is Annie the Celebrant?

So, I used to be a lawyer. But then I had half a dozen kids. Making the move from New Zealand fifteen years ago was the best decision my hubby (of 21 years) and I ever made! Four kiddos came with us and two are Perth born and bred. Family is everything.
Becoming a celebrant was my destiny. My greatest passion in life is to enjoy quality interactions and relationships with people. I love to meet people from all walks of life and to chat and chat, with some great laughs thrown in there too. Being a lawyer and a mum to so many has developed skills incredibly suited to planning and delivering epic wedding ceremonies. It also means that I know how to support and uplift my beautiful couples so they have a stress free, relaxed and enjoyable wedding day.


HERE'S WHAT THEY SAY

  • review rating 5  Annie married Cara & I last month (April 2019). We would highly recommend her, we had been to quite a few weddings before ours and can honestly say she is the best celebrant we have seen, and we're so happy we ended up with her running ours. It's always a bit of a gamble when you select a celebrant unless you have seen them before, but right from the start we knew Annie was going to do a great job and she didn't disappoint. What we loved about Annie most was her bubbly personality and the job she did of personalizing the ceremony to include our story. She also gave the right directions to guests and controlled all the music we selected earlier with her portable speaker and cordless microphone. If your unsure about which celebrant to use we would definitely recommend using Annie as your celebrant for your special day!

  • review rating 5  Annie looked after our wedding at the zoo. She was fantastic to work with, accommodating in her availability and very precise with her paperwork. She was also incredibly easy going and open with her "script" for the day, she allowed us to edit it and put it more in our voice so that we could feel as comfortable with it as possible. On the day she was breezy and calm. All her gear was set up and packed away with no troubles as all. It's a big complex and exciting day. I think a great testament to her professional attitude is that for important bits of the ceremony, I've noticed she's not in the photos. Her situational awareness and discretion are perfect. She also took plenty of time on the day to make sure we were both in the right frame of mind. Annie really helped to make sure it was as stress free as possible. She was curtious and professional. Easy to work with and I would have no problems recommending her to anyone in need of a celebrant

  • review rating 5  We feel incredibly lucky to have had Annie as our wedding celebrant! Not only did Annie take the time to get to know Jacque and I, she really listened to everything that was important to us and helped guide us through the whole process. She has this energy and warmth that instantly puts you at ease. On top of all this, we learned that Annie speaks Portuguese and she was thrilled to offer us a bilingual ceremony. Our guests are still raving about her and we are blessed to have made a new friend. Thank-you again Annie 🙂

  • review rating 5  Thank you thank you THANK YOU, Annie! You made our ceremony everything we had hoped for and helped us so much with thinking through how everything was going to run for the big day. We're not very "wedding-y", and there was so much we didn't even consider, so it really put our minds at ease that we had someone who was seeing the big picture! The ceremony was absolutely beautiful and we've had nothing but positive comments from family and friends (mostly just "WHERE did you find your celebrant? She was just LOVELY!" - which Ilan and I have continuously agreed with!) You made us feel like we were in good hands right from the very first meeting all the way up to the end of the ceremony. We're both so grateful for all the time and effort you put into making our day special!

WHAT DOES YOUR MARRIAGE CELEBRANT DO?

A Commonwealth-registered Marriage Celebrant is appointed by the Attorney General’s Department and is authorised to marry people according to Australian Law. There's a million of them! (that's an exaggeration of course, lol). We can all do the paperwork, we can all legally marry you. But there is so much more! An awesome marriage celebrant, that's me, listens to and works with you to deliver a fantastic personalised ceremony. We will get the paperwork done, but it'll be so much more than that. We will marry the heck out of you!


Where do we start?

Good question! After initial contact we can catch up for a cuppa and discuss your plans. When you know I’m the celebrant for you we then fill out some legally prescribed paperwork. We will meet again and really figure out what it is you want in your ceremony. We will email and text and chat as much as necessary. We will probably meet a few more times. Before the big day we can have a rehearsal at the venue to make sure we are good to go! On your big day, you turn up looking fabulous and we get you hitched in the most epic and memorable way possible!! Easy Peasy!



MEMORABLE MOMENTS

There’s a bit of waiting time before your ceremony kicks off so I’m always there interacting with your guests and even entertaining them. Well here the young chap is doing the entertaining. I asked if anyone had a joke- he was first to put his hand up! 📷 @jasmineskyephotography #wahitchers #wawedding #waweddings #wamarriagecelebrant #wacelebrant #weddingstory #waweddingcelebrant #perthwedding #perthweddings #perthcelebrant #marriageceremony #perthweddingcelebrant #happycouple #perthmarriagecelebrant #tcstribe #thecelebrantsociety #groomsdudes #groom #love #anniethecelebrant #ido #instalove #instaweddings #perthbride #newlyengaged #funcelebrant #planningawedding #weddingplans #weddingceremony #weddingdesign ...

This photo brings so many emotions. Ed and Connie’s wedding was my last of the season before all the rules changed. It is so special being able to stand together for a hug after you’ve married a couple. I never take it for granted but I really loved receiving this 📷 from my buddy Andrew @imajicaphotography yesterday. A reminder of what we’ve temporarily lost but also of what an honour it is to be part of a couples very special day. As I reminisce of this beautiful March wedding I’m reminded of the absolute joy of the day. The display of love and affection was very touching. Vows were declared in both Spanish and English, and were breathtakingly divine. Tears flowed and cheers erupted, hugs were offered aplenty. Every aspect of working with these two was simply incredible. I learnt a lot more about love and I’m forever grateful to them for choosing me to be their celebrant. @connieprietto @barrettlanefunctions @oborneweddings @joshfromperth @micdropmediaentertainment #wahitchers #wawedding #wamarriagecelebrant #wacelebrant #weddingstory #waweddingcelebrant #perthweddings #perthcelebrant #marriageceremony #perthweddingcelebrant #happycouple #perthmarriagecelebrant #tcstribe #thecelebrantsociety #bride #groom #love #anniethecelebrant #ido #instalove #instaweddings #perthbride #newlyengaged #funcelebrant #planningawedding #weddingplans #loveislove #truelove #weddingceremony #weddingdesign ...

A few months after this lovely day I received a phone call from a woman who was passing by as I prepared the space and delivered the ceremony for these gorgeous gals. She said that she was drawn to my bubbly warm nature and wanted to know if I would be the celebrant for her celebration of life service. After the initial shock (that most certainly was a first for such a request!) I said of course and then we chatted more about her and her wishes for her service. I asked how she got my number. She said it was quite an ordeal. She called the council who kindly did some detective work to find me. What a unique experience! I certainly hope it’s quite awhile before I’m delivering her service! She deserves the award for #planningahead #wahitchers #wawedding #waweddings #wamarriagecelebrant #wacelebrant #waweddingcelebrant #perthwedding #perthweddings #perthcelebrant #perthweddingcelebrant #perthmarriagecelebrant #tcstribe #thecelebrantsociety #bride #groom #love #anniethecelebrant #ido #instalove #instaweddings #funeralcelebrant ...

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! It was all smiles and fun at Cara and Paul’s wedding. Why wouldn’t it be? We told their awesome story about their incredible love and friendship in front of their loved ones. It was a perfect moment for two very adorable people. I’m so lucky to have incredible couples! Happy 1st anniversary guys. I know you’ll be celebrating in style even in these crazy days. 📷 @imajicaphotography @mooreandmooreevents @cara.elizabeth.ryan #wahitchers #wawedding #waweddings #wamarriagecelebrant #wacelebrant #waweddingcelebrant #perthwedding #perthweddings #perthcelebrant #perthweddingcelebrant #perthmarriagecelebrant #tcstribe #thecelebrantsociety #bride #groom #love #anniethecelebrant #ido #instalove #instaweddings #weddinganniversary #1stanniversary #celebrate ...

I love the special moments in a ceremony. Signing the marriage certificates is one of those moments. You take time with your spouse and the two witnesses you’ve chosen. There’s a reason you chose them so enjoy being together for this brief moment. #wahitchers #wawedding #waweddings #wamarriagecelebrant #wacelebrant #waweddingcelebrant #perthwedding #perthweddings #perthcelebrant #perthweddingcelebrant #perthmarriagecelebrant #tcstribe #thecelebrantsociety #bride #groom #love #anniethecelebrant #ido #instalove #instaweddings #sydneyharbourwedding ...

In the words of the great Freddie Mercury “the show must go on” so it did. April 2020 weddings are looking a bit different, but they are still happening!

Boy do I miss the up close and personal! Here I am with two gorgeous humans as they are ready to exchange their rings. I am marrying an adorable couple tomorrow, but to be strictly safe and conforming to the new rules we are doing Legals only. No rings, no extras. Just the legal words which mean they are married. It will still be special. That’s my job, to make a couples day the best it possibly can, and their “Legals only” will still be the best!

Love. We all seek it. Sometimes the most magical kind of love is shared between a couple. Connie and Edward were married in front of their most cherished on Saturday. To say they were an epic crowd is an understatement! To say that this couple are soul mates totally perfect for and in love with each other doesn’t do justice to the love I have witnessed between them. Connie and Ed were the first couple to contact me through Instagram. I was extremely excited when this happened and even more excited when I officiated for their incredibly beautiful ceremony. I am beyond privileged to share the best day of a couples life with them.

Divine Sara and Chris. They came all the way from Melbourne to get married. Our first meeting was via Skype. Then we met in person the week of the wedding. I loved every minute planning an epic ceremony with them. We had a lot of fun on the day. The dj’s speaker failed but luckily my gorgeous PA was up to the task with no one being the wiser. Like a scout- always be prepared.

My five gorgeous daughters who are strong, independent and know that it’s ok to be themselves, treat others with kindness and respect our Mother Earth. They know that they are as important as anyone else out there and can fulfil any dreams they have. I am grateful for all the amazing women who pioneered the way for my daughters to have opportunities to pretty much do whatever they like in life. I feel so blessed to be able to raise 5 incredible girls (and our only boy).

Annie was a wonderful celebrant that understood Katherine & my desire to have a smaller more intimate wedding rather than a large formal, traditional wedding. Annie made sure that Katherine and I were completely comfortable and confident in the undertaking of our vows and ensured that all our questions were answered during preparation for the ceremony. Annie was extremely professional… Read more “James & Katherine”
