Hello. I’m Lara Williams. I’m a wife, mum of two, seasoned bridesmaid, organised nerd and wedding enthusiast. And a proud wedding and funeral celebrant circa 2016.
Being in my
early mid 30s, I’ve attended dozens of weddings. I found that celebrants were too often out of touch, cheesy, unprepared or thought they were starring in their own (really bad) stand-up show. I believe a great celebrant is never the centre of attention, but a host to guide you and your special guests through your celebration your way. My motto: save the cheesiness for dessert!
So, I coupled (don’t pardon the pun) my knack for storytelling and getting to know people with my love of events, confident public speaking, creativity and good humour and put it to good use—hopefully as your celebrant! And I truly love weddings, everything about them: the dress, the food, the speeches, the dancing—the whole shebang. But the ceremony is unquestionably my favourite part because it’s personal, unique and important. It is why the two of you are there. The ceremony should be a true reflection of your personalities and do justice to the relationship you are celebrating.
So, from the intimate to the spectacular, the traditional to the off-beat, I’d be privileged to make certain your 100% original ceremony runs like clockwork and is exactly what you’d hoped for. All you will need to worry about is enjoying the moment.
Get in touch and we can arrange an obligation and awkwardness free first meeting over coffee, water or wine to get to know each other and discuss your special event.
