“Wow is all I can say.
Kirby honestly made our wedding the day that it was. We couldn’t have done it without her!!! Not only is she the nicest, most calm & kind soul. She is amazing at her job- fabulous all round. Organised, efficient and experienced!
It was truly a blessing to have her there on the day with us, all my nerves vanished and she took the reigns! I felt like during the ceremony it was just my husband, Kirby and I.
10/10 would reccommend!!!!
The beautiful Nicola & Eric, leaving a lovely little surprise review on my FB page and making me feel all the feels this morning 😭✨
It means the world to me that you had the best day ever, truly.. that’s the ultimate goal each and every time 🤍
Thank-you so so much guys for taking the time to leave this review, I appreciate it so very much xo ...
That magical light ✨
I could stare at these sneak peek photos allllll day, aren’t they just spectacular?!

What a perfect day for two of the most beautiful humans @ the spectacular Jackalope.
A little sneaky (secret) mid-week elopement with only their immediate family attending and gosh it was just magical.
I cannot express how honoured I felt to be there, I will forever hold this day in my heart J & H!
Ps. These photos are insanely beautiful, you captured their special day perfectly @gingerandmint 🙌🏼✨
5 years married today 🤍

Email I just received: 😭😍
Thank you so much! But seriously, thank you for your incredible ceremony and our couples story - it was so well done, funny and engaged the whole crowd!! One of our friends said it was the best ceremony she had been too and so impressed with how you officiated. We were so thrilled with how everything went, and you made it so hard a smooth and stress free event for us ❤️ We had an absolute ball and are so happy to be officially married!
Thank you for lodging the paperwork, that all sounds great 😊 And you are very welcome about the pen, Dad is always happy to show them off, hehe.
Miranda did such and great job with the pics and the balloons were so cool too. And the food was amazing!! Chin Chin was such a great choice and highly recommend them as a venue!!
Here are some preview pics from the day. I will send through more when we get the official ones.
Thanks again for doing such a wonderful job!
Take care and all the best!

Mr & Mrs Zajac, our amazingly loved up and beautiful best friends! ✨
On 31.12.21, these two lovebirds were (finally) married at the spectacular Mitchelton Wines- bringing in the NEW YEAR as Husband & Wife!
Although, the day prior to their wedding, my Husband (Best Man) tested positive to c*vid on a 'precautionary' RA test before heading up to Nagambie. Meaning myself and my husband Craig were immediately sent into 7 days of isolation. (F*CK).
So.. on the 30th, I scrambled and instantly began making calls in crisis management mode locking in a new (super lovely and talented) Celebrant for the couple last minute. I transferred all the paperwork and legal documentation accordingly so everything was seamless for the ceremony side of things. The wonderful Kate read my script beautifully and was incredibly supportive to the couple - which I'm ever so grateful for.
Once that was sorted, my 2 year old Ivy and I quickly packed our bags and moved out to out to avoid any potential exposure (as I'm currently pregnant, which provoked even more anxiety in this devastatingly difficult situation).
Ivy has since been asking for her Dad and saying she misses him 2,386 per day which is so effing hard. It's the longest time Craig and I have spent apart from one another in over 9 years.
Anyway.. I'm babbling a little with this post, as I'm still super emotional and heartbroken to have missed our best friends special day - but none the less, we (and some more of their besties) watched on via Zoom all night, we all laughed, cried and loved every moment! But most importantly, Nick and Estelle had an INCREDIBLY special day and that's all we had ever wished for... their smiles said it all. Even via Zoom.. the love in the room could still be felt in spades.
To all my future couples, if you are feeling (understandably) anxious about upcoming wedding dates.
Please take this BEAUTIFUL photo of Estelle and Nick as inspiration...
If your wedding looks a little different to what you had originally planned.. just remember all you need in the end is each other ❤️ ...
Wishing all my beautiful (past & future) couples a very Happy New Year✨
It’s going to be a crazy busy wedding season in 2022 for all of your wedding vendors, as we are still madly playing catchup cramming almost 2 years of postponements into this coming year, but my gosh it’s amazing to be back in full swing marrying peeps & celebrating lurrrve again!! 🤍
On a personal note, I have 25 super spesh weddings booked from Jan-April’22 & during these next 4 months- I’ll be bringing a little plus one along with me, as I’m currently growing a human, a little brother for Ivy✨👶🏼
Thank-you so much to each and every one of you for allowing me to play a small part on your special day, it honestly means the world to me to be able to truly love what I do. I hold each & every one of my couples with me in my heart always. I have the BEST ‘job’ in the world.
HNY lovers 🤍🤍

“ Thank you soooooo much Kirbs!! You did an amazing job. Especially bringing it all together so quickly haha #covidlife
Nick told me he joked with you about the empty ring box ahahah NOT FUNNY NICK!!!
It was suchhh a beautiful ceremony and we 100% made the best call to move it inside so we didn't have to stress.
🤍 Lots of love, Grace “ ...
Weddings are back in full swing!!
I met with three of my couples yesterday for ceremony planning ahead of their upcoming nuptials ☺️🥰
It’s a CRAZY busy few months ahead, but I’m just so incredibly happy being back doing what I lurveeeee! ✨

The kindest of words from a lifelong friend of mine ….. 😭🙏❤️
“ The ceremony that Kirby delivered at our wedding was the most special part of our whole day. She took such great care in learning and telling our story, even family members commented that they learnt a few things about us that they didn't know before!
The process leading up to the wedding was so easy and fun, you can tell Kirby simply loves doing what she does and wants her couples to have the most beautiful, memorable ceremony. Our guests were so impressed with how relaxed, fun, funny and beautiful the ceremony was. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Kirby to anyone, it will be the best decision you could possibly make when it comes to your wedding! “

A little shoutout to my darling husband 🥰
Whilst I’m away ‘working’ this weekend, he’s at home looking after our little Ivy Isobel 🤍
I’m so fortunate to do what I do for work, it truly is my dream job ✨
But like all parents out there, the juggle is reaaaaal- I feel you! It may look all glam on ‘the instas’ - but there’s so much behind the scenes work before and after the wedding day, trust me. There’s a lot of late nights. Especially after the c-word (covid) came into play… it’s been tough.
It simply wouldn’t be possible for me to marry all my super gorgeous couples each weekend - without this guy cheering me on in the background, taking care of me, making me a coffee every morning, asking how my spreadsheets are going & if I need help with them (yes!), doing our laundry -pretty much daily, filling up my petrol when I’m low, carrying my PA system to the car, making sure my iPad is plugged in charging the night before ceremony music yep… the list goes on, he’s a bloody dream. I know, sorry, I’m bragging.
If only he’d proactively offer up a foot massage every now and then… but no ones perfect I guess.
Craig, as per my wedding vows I wrote to you over 4 years ago now…. “I promise to say ‘ I love you’ 5 times before we go to sleep each night , because saying it only once doesn’t even come close to showing you how I truly feel”…
I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you
Gosh, I love being there in front row seats to witness my couples in lurveeeeee on their wedding day. I always feel the feels… so emotional.
It often makes me reflect on my own ‘lovestory’ & gee whiz I’m grateful…
My husband ✨ ...
Pre-ceremony hugs with the stunningly beautiful Rach 🤗💫🤍
“ Hi Kirby,
Our photos have come through so just wanted to share a few with you!
Was literally beaming going through these - everyone looks SO happy!!
I know Kale sent you an email just after the wedding thanking you on behalf of both of us, but I also just wanted to sincerely thank you again for everything!
It was the ceremony of my dreams, and there is absolutely nothing I would go back and change! It was fun, light hearted but also emotional and romantic, so thank you for your guidance!
We had such amazing feedback from our guests and everyone loved the Bridal Party intro’s. So unique and personable!
Just want to do it all over again <3
