"The person you sit down for a coffee and a chat with, is the same person up there with you as you say your vows. There is no pretense, no performance."
- Brett and Tomas, I will never, ever forget the electrifying cheer they received as they entered the chapel that day
JUST AN EVERYDAY MELBOURNE CHICK (SHE/HER)
I live in leafy Diamond Creek with my husband and two young kidlets and I'm a marriage celebrant. Yay for me because I.LOVE.WEDDINGS!
COUNTRY GIRL AT HEART
As much as I LOVE Melbourne, I'm originally from the country and like to think of myself as a country girl. I'll bring that relaxed, fun and down to earth feel to both planning your ceremony and throughout the ceremony itself.
TEACHER AND TRAINER BY TRADE
I've been training in the travel industry for the last ten years. I'm also an ex-primary school teacher and I am comfortable in front of a crowd. My public speaking style is warm, sincere and upbeat. I've been told that I exude a lot of joy, and that's probably because I really, truly love being a part of any wedding and do my absolute best to make the crowd feel this too.
"I remember getting out of the car, ready to walk down the aisle, and feeling immediately at ease when I saw you - you must have that affect on people "
- Vanessa, babeliscious bride. If I can do ONE thing - it's this xx
"Every chat, text or Insta DM, you can just feel the positive energy radiating from Wendy and we loved that about her
- Chloe and Wade, and I'm not sorry for the barrage of messages you'll get from me on different platforms simultaneously
CELEBRITY CELEBRANT, TV, BOOKS & CAFFEINE
You think you've seen me on TV? Well, you probably have. You see, I like to call myself a 'celebrity celebrant' these days. I was on Married at First Sight marrying Connie and Jonethen early last year and I just LOVE when people ask me 'have I seen you on TV?'. I'm milking my 15 minutes for all it's worth but I don't think the fame has gone to my head just yet (but seriously, please watch my 2 minutes of glory HERE, and then tell me 'we saw you on TV'. I promise you it'll make my day!).
When I'm not doing weddings or grappling with my small humans, you'll find me with my other great love, coffee. I'm also TV obsessed (Schitts Creek anyone?) and a big time book lover. Even if you're not getting married, DM me for book or TV chat anytime, ok?
I HAVE THE BEST 'JOB' EVER!
Seriously, I get the biggest buzz out of marrying people (I still can't believe I get to call it my job!) - meeting them, hearing their story and telling it in a way that leaves their guests feeling like they are the best couple there ever was. It is the absolute best!
"If you book Wendy, you will get a celebrant who wants to get to know you and you will end up with a lovely friend, excellent TV and book recommendations too!
- Emma and Scott, not JUST here for wedding chat. I'll be in your life foreverrrrr.
