GT BRIDE BLOG POST

Please give a warm welcome to my real-life couple…… Kellie & Riley!
You can check out their wedding journey as shared on the GT BRIDE BLOG post here…
I loved being a part of their special day and they had some very unique aspects of their wedding that I hope more couples would consider:

  • Have a flower girl “drive” down the aisle in a remote controlled car!
  • Have your 3 best friends who were there the moment you met, write and deliver your personal “love story” during the ceremony (rather than me sharing it!)
  • Have divine emerald green bridesmaids dresses that were to die for!!!
  • Play Rock, Paper, Scissors to see who will go first in saying their vows.
  • Write secret vows to one another and the moment you share them on your wedding day is the first time your fiance hears them.

Oooooh a Celebrant is soooo proud when they get to see their couples up in lights, in the spotlight in the GT Bride Blog! Check out Zara & Stephen and all their love for one another over on the GT website – click here!
I was so chuffed to be a part of their special day at Truffleduck. It was beautiful in every way and they just celebrated their very first wedding anniversary just a few weeks ago! (Yes, take us all back to this time last year right!)

2020 ABIA AWARDS FINALIST

ABIA 2020 FINALIST

Great NEWS!
For the 5th year in a row, I have been announced as a FINALIST in the 22nd Victorian Annual ABIA Wedding Industry Awards!
I have landed amongst the TOP 20 Celebrants in Victoria and will now await for the winner to be announced in October.
A huge thank you to ABIA for putting on these awards every year (even if they will be virtual this year) and the biggest THANKS goes to every single one of my couples who supported my nomination and hopefully gave me as close to 100% as possible!!! It is always a very tight finish to see the scores at the end, so we will just have to wait and see how I went. For now, TOP 20 in Victoria sounds pretty good! 
Love Nicole. x

So 2020 has been pretty shitty, I am sure everyone can agree.
But I have teamed up with my gal pals at Ivory Tribe to share with you all a different perspective on Weddings in 2020 and beyond.
Yes, you may have got married legally in 2020, but it wasn’t the MASSIVE celebration that you hoped it would be – here in my BLOG POST I share with you all how you can legally get married in 2020, but have your wedding cake and eat it too! (See what I did there?)
Enjoy the read, Love Nicole. x

Couples are still getting engaged, still planning their Wedding Day, so they still need us! They might want to get married now with only the 5 people legally allowed to be there, or be planning their big day for 2021 when hopefully all this is behind us and we can hug and kiss one another like crazy!

I have advertised with Your Local Wedding Guide numerous times over the last 11 years – you can find my (free, thanks to Jeff) listing here!

Their website has a great variety of wedding suppliers from car hire, florists, photographers, to venues, make up artists and of course – CELEBRANTS!

LOCK IN THE LOVE

www.ivorytribe.com.au

Amongst this current world-wide shut down… Wedding Suppliers are still open for business!
One day (not sure when) but one day… weddings will look the way they use to – with over-flowing drinks on the dance floor, 100+ loved family and friends partying with you to celebrate your love for one another, kissing, hugging but still…  keep your coughs and sneezes to yourself!

SO YES – I am still open for business.

However… dates are filling up fast with all my current couples having to postpone their dream day to later in 2020 or even early 2021…. so I suggest you get in touch quickly to make sure I am still available for your dream day!

Feel free to pop me an email at nicolepenning@gmail.com and let me know your big (or small) plans and I will check my diary for you.

Remember, all we need is love, and clean hands! Nicole. xxx

#4 Best Celebrant in Melbourne

A HUGE thank you to all my 2018 couples who voted for me in the ABIA Awards last year. Thanks to all your votes I have been awarded the title of one of Melbourne’s BEST Celebrants! Ranked #4 out of the 17 listed to be exact.

I completely love what I do as a Celebrant and feel honoured every single time a couple ask me to marry them, let alone the moment I stand by their side as they exchange their vows with one another!

I feel so incredibly lucky and humbled that “I” get to do that!

This is my dream job that I get to live every single day and I truly never feel like I am working a day in my life.

I can not thank my couples, colleagues and my family & friends enough in supporting my Celebrant career over the last 10 years!

Can you tell I'm pretty excited about it! :-)
