I’ve been asked so many times how – and why – I became a celebrant – and I always tell them the truth. It was good luck – very, very good luck. A lucky guess, at best.
Nobody knows if they’ll be good at something before they do it. I didn’t know, either. (In fact, I had actually forgotten that I was terrified of public speaking in high school!)
You have to take the plunge – or you’ll never know.
So I jumped. And after my very first wedding, I realised that I was always meant to do this.
Years and years later, I know I was 150% right, that day. I have never looked back.
My enthusiasm never runs out. The excitement never fades. The stories, the couples, the individuals never ever feel same-old. The fresh, wonderful newness of each event – is always fresh and new. The hugs and encouragement are always honest and heartfelt. The sheer joy I get from being a part of such a special moment is every bit as joyful as it was at the beginning.
I am blessed.
