Sam and Rosie

Rosie and Sam first met while backpacking around Europe. Despite Sam lying about his birthday to impress her (a lie he managed to keep up for almost a year!) they became the closest of friends. Rosie moved to Australia from the UK to be with her 'hot Aussie' and they haven't looked back since.

Initially, Sam's scepticism of celebrants in general made him pretty hesitant to book me. It wasn't the realisation that they couldn't get married without a celebrant that got him over the line - it was when he found out that we both watched his beloved Cats win the 2007 Premiership at the same bar in Munich at 4am. Well, from that point on we just made a beautiful ceremony, held at Butterland in Central Victoria.
