Over a beautiful summer weekend in January, I packed up the car and headed off for my first destination* wedding. The wonderful Amelia and Nicola were having a beautiful intimate ceremony at Quamby Home in Hagley, and I was their very lucky Celebrant.Read More
Ten years ago this week, I tried something new and fun. It turned into a huge part of my life.
It don’t mean a thing, if it ain’t got that swing!Read More
Amy and Lee are two extraordinary women. At the time of their engagement, they had been a loving, committed couple for almost fourteen years and had started a family together. They describe their relationship as head and heart.

Picture this. You have just said "I do", recited your vows and exchanged rings. It's the climax of your ceremony!
You are about to be announced as a married couple and everyone is waiting for that first kiss.

How good is it when you get invited to a great friend’s wedding? Pretty awesome, right!
The excitement of witnessing two people that you know and adore, celebrate their love for each other. The spectacle of seeing them dressed up to the nines. The privilege of being part of their day. It's terrific!

To start, I’d love to share this spectacular Aurora Australis experience I had on a clear evening in April 2018.Read More
Hello world! Welcome to the first blog for Tim Grimsey – Hobart Celebrant.
In my first blog post, I wanted to share with you a project I worked on over Easter 2018. As a new wedding celebrant, I have decided to create new ideas for promotion. Ideas that are not gender specific that everyone can relate to – or at least get a chuckle from.Read More
