This blog post, the people in it, their story, this is why I do what I do. Two kids in love, no real inhibitions or worries about wedding tradition, just simply celebrating love and commitment.

Ant and Sally’s wedding was such a fun an authentic affair. Between flower boys, a brewery, the bush and the imminent threat of a snake that was sighted just before the wedding, this was an affair I simply enjoyed and loved!

My husband and I recently had the pleasure of exchanging our vows in the presence of the one-of-a-kind celebrant Josh Withers. Josh did everything for us; he provided ideas, equipment, support, humour, and atmosphere. Actually, to be honest, they weren’t even our vows – at the last minute he provided those as well!

We probably aren’t the traditional couple, and I’m guessing that is exactly what Josh caters for. I didn’t want an overly sappy ceremony, something short, sweet, and a touch of humour to keep everyone interested (because most are there for the booze right?!). I don’t remember much of what was said in our vows, but while I was grinning from ear to ear in front of my groom, I do remember vowing to stand by him in a zombie apocalypse.

Josh can pick personalities quite well and he’ll likely adapt his style to suit the celebrations. I really enjoyed having him around; he’s a great bloke and a fantastic celebrant. As I’ve said to the many guests that have asked for his details, I’d happily (and forcefully) recommend him as a wedding celebrant.

It was truly memorable! Sally and Anthony Ronchese

Michelle Eide took the pics, Stanthorpe’s Happy Valley Retreat served the beer and I performed the ceremony.
