Ceremony Stories - Dark Mofo Nude Solstice Swim Wedding
Ceremony Stories - Alison and Rory
At 7:42am, on the winter solstice of 2019, one very courageous and inspiring couple were married in a wedding at the Dark Mofo Nude Solstice Swim; and I was there to do the hitching. Awesome!!!
As cameras were banned during the swim, the magnificent Scott Fraser has immortalised this wedding in digital ink. Scott is pretty fricken awesome! You should totally go check out his other
Ceremony Stories - Nicola and Amelia
Ali and Rory had a super fun wedding filled with heart, laughter and an amazing macrame arbour.
The main aim we had when putting together their ceremony, is that we wanted things to be lighthearted. Nothing too serious or formal. With a combination of guest participation, cheeky stories and some epic vows, we hit the jackpot.
So with a little bit of rhyme, I’d like to share the story; Of a wedding day, full of heart, I shared with Alison and Rory.
What Makes Tim Tick #2 - Swing!
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.
Ceremony Stories - Amy and Lee
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!
Seven Super Snog Songs
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.
Their ceremony was going to be a special one – for everyone. It was also going to be a wee bit sneaky too.
Ceremony Stories - Alex and Albert
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.
Ceremony Stories - Gill and Michael
I met Alex and Albert through a referral from another celebrant and friend, Jill Harper. What followed was a great experience and a wonderful ceremony.
And it even stopped raining for a moment...
What Makes Tim Tick #1 - Chasing Aurora
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!
I can assure you that being invited to be the celebrant (!), for the wedding of two dear friends, is absolutely wonderful. Michael and Gill were my very first couple and it was a great honour to be their celebrant.
Making my start, with two paper hearts
Working with a wedding celebrant is a unique relationship. Unless you are lucky enough to have a good friend who is also a celebrant, chances are your celebrant is going to be the person at your wedding that you have known for the shortest length of time.
They will also be the person talking the most! So it’s good if you’ve had the chance to get to know them.
With my blog, along with sharing stories of my ceremonies (on the way), I hope to provide a window into my world, and show what makes me tick – so I’m less of a stranger. I’d like to share my experiences, interests, achievements and just general brain bubblings.
To start, I’d love to share this spectacular Aurora Australis experience I had on a clear evening in April 2018.
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.
