My life as a real wedding celebrant began in the summer of 2014. I received a request from Annika and Marcus. The excited couple wanted to plan a surprise wedding celebration on the car-free Dutch island of Texel. However, there was a problem.
Basically, I’d never conducted a wedding before in my entire life. I told them, I was a singer – entertainer and had no training in being a celebrant at a real wedding. But, Annika and Marcus already had their paperwork sorted. And they just needed someone to carry out their classic wedding ceremony with a traditional modern twist.
Annika and Marcus’s request read:
“We would like to celebrate our wedding on the island of Texel. Could you marry us and entertain our guests?”
Unfortunately, due to unexpected circumstances my services were no longer required. But, the good news was, it set me on a new journey in my career as a singer and entertainer. I enrolled immediately in a celebrant course at www.flexiblecoaching.nl and thereafter the singing wedding celebrant was born. Since then I’ve performed wedding gigs and commitment ceremonies. Even overseas couples contact me to help them elope to Amsterdam. I love my job.
Over to you…
