After years of honing my craft as a Celebrant, I’ve come to a place of feeling so at home in this thing called ‘work’. Recently one of my couples wrote these words about me, and it made me cry. How blessed am I to not only serve others in a way that is meaningful, but that is deeply meaningful to me too. Yes! This is my path. My calling. My place called home.
“Where on earth did you find Michele?” “Michele was AMAZING!” “This was by far the best wedding ceremony I have ever attended!” “Everyone in my entire row was crying. It was SO beautiful!”
We lost count of the number of times we heard heartfelt compliments like these from our friends and family on our wedding day. They were touched, moved and transported to a magical place by Michele. We were blown away.
Our love story began more than 22 years ago, culminating in our wedding that celebrated our life journey together so far. It was not an easy task to figure out how to tell such a complicated tale. We wanted our guests to know more about how we met, fell in love, and built a life together. After our very first meeting with Michele, we knew we had found our master storyteller.
Through a series of conversations and discovery sessions, she absolutely figured us out (as if she had known us for many years) and built a ceremony story that was funny, poignant, emotional and uplifting. She truly captured the essence of who we are as individuals and as a couple. We teased her a lot about how hard she was making us work (being open and sharing our personal stories, filling out those darn questionnaires!), but it truly paid off.
Michele is one of those rare people you meet in life – genuine, warm, open, caring and dedicated to her work. As she told us, she takes her role very seriously and we felt her deep commitment to us as a couple. This was the most important element of our wedding and choosing Michele was the best decision we ever made!”
