The Business Woman/The Celebrant Behind Martini Bride
Before I start, let me say this, I do not claim to be an expert but I know people and I listen to what everyone has to say. I have been told too many times to admit, that I have this incredible ability to bring people together and guess what Martini Bride is all about? Bringing people together.
Having Melbourne running through my veins it made sense to focus on our capital city as a starting point, the talent and creatives we have in our “most liveable city” is mind blowing, I know, because this is also me Sharon the Celebrant and a chatty chirpy one at that, I have met, worked with, admired, aspired to and developed many friendships along the way, being so passionate about this industry, I was like a sponge, taking in absolutely everything and everyone.
Over time, as my celebrant career advanced rather quickly, when meeting my very own couples I had a plethora of talented wedding industry folk to recommend to them, which was very welcomed as it is a minefield out there, with many taking up my offers of recommendation, a direction that suited their personalities.
Over the quieter celebrant winter, my busy brain ticking away I thought I really need to share my knowledge, contacts, funny and not so funny stories not only with my couples but with THE WORLD!
Da Dahhhh! Martini Bride was born and a passion stirred in me I hadn’t felt so strongly since deciding to become a Marriage Celebrant.
The Brides/The Women Behind the Women
I married recently, a wee ferry ride over from Auckland, New Zealand, to a stunning island called Waiheke we did go, sadly, at that time, my very own country would not allow us to marry here legally, which was really important to us. I didn’t want to be a “saggy, everything dropping south” kind of bride so time was running against me. I knew I wanted to marry Eleni within 6 months of dating, six years later I didn’t want to wait any longer for our government to decide if I could marry or not.
Needless to say every wedding supplier you connect with on Martini Bride is for marriage equality, because let’s face it they have to go through me, the gate keeper, to be a part of what I believe to be an amazing directory, you will never have to say “we are same sex is that ok?” in fact Martini Bride is all about equality in general, meaning no discrimination on colour, religion nor gender.
I had awoken from my winters sleep and annoyed my wife/roadie on a minute by minute basis on the direction of the new baby, she had no choice but to be caught up in my excitement, wife and roadie then became business partner too.
I hope you enjoy the journey as we (yes lots of contributors) share, explore and deliver to you, amazing weddings and events, along with all the suppliers who helped create them, to you on a silver platter.
