Netti & Neil’s Surprise Wedding
Netti & Neil are close friends of mine who had been together for 12 years. They approached me July 2013, a few months after I became registered as a celebrant to ask me if I would marry them. The twist was the wedding was to be kept completely secret squirrel.
So 8 weeks later at the Builders Arms Hotel in Fitzroy, myself, my husband and four other close friends were in a private dinning room clebrating Neils 40th. You can imagine the look on everyone’s faces when Neil announced during his birthday speech that they would be getting married ‘tonight’. I can’t beleive that my husbands first thought was ‘who is going to marry them’.
It was a fun, relaxed, intimate ceremony full of hecklers, good friends and lots of love. All the perfect elements for a memorable wedding.
It was the first wedding ceremony I had ever performed and one that I will always remember.
