The Ceremony: During the first meeting with the very cool Leanne and Chris, they told me that they have a close friend who they would love to include in their ceremony. They informed me he had performed a fair bit of his sisters wedding last year. So it was set that Simon and I would co-conduct the proceedings. I drafted up a ceremony for Leanne and Chris and then they gave it to Simon to let him add his parts in. It pretty well went that I did the legal parts and Simon did the rest.

On the day it was beautiful to see such a dear friend to Leanne and Chris play such an integral role for their wedding. Simon was fantastic and very funny, he would make a great Celebrant if he ever wants to change careers! It was a wonderful ceremony and everyone had a fabulous time.
