I am an Australian marriage celebrant, and I need help writing my couples stories. Attached are examples of what I am after. I provide my couples with a questionnaire and then you write their story.
I always like the first paragraph to say something along the lines of:
Indeed, in many ways, when you decide to commit to someone for the rest of your life, you’re embarking on perhaps the most challenging of all human adventures. And there’s no doubt that the journey that Bronte and Amber are on is quite an adventure.
An important part of my role as Celebrant is of course to get to know the couple I am marrying, and learn a little about their shared history. So now, I can also tell you a bit about Dan and Bowen.
or something along those lines, I don't mind if you repeat yourself for every story as it’s a new audience.
And I always like them to end like:
But marriage does add a new level to that sense of belonging, of connection that they have. And it is the perfect way to share their happiness and joy with everyone that they love.
It unites their families and is a celebration of a great moment in their lives, one they want to experience with all those they hold close to their hearts.
Marriage means staying on this same path, never veering off it and being a safe place for each other no matter what. It means growing old together, laughing together and being loved for the rest of their lives.
Marriage, for John and Ellie is the opportunity to declare their commitment and love, and to share their joy with everyone they hold dear. It means not only standing by one another for the rest of their lives but also uniting their families as one.
They are best friends and cannot wait to see what the future holds for them and their families. Whatever comes their way, they know that they will face it together, as a team.
Humour is important and I usually get that from how they are the same or different, I know it's not always possible. We Australian's love paying out on each other.
Attached are Pierre and Sean’s questions and my written story.
And Lucy and Oliver’s questions and my written story.
Of course some couples' answers are better than others.
If you are interested let me know and I will send you a trial.
I pay $25 Aust $ a story
