Usually it’s me who’s helping other people to do the celebrating, but I’m celebrating something very special myself – the WEOA Celebrant of the Year Award!
I’m part of a select group of young Celebrants called Engage Celebrants. There’s only 12 of us, and we are together because we all have the same goals and approach to weddings. We all have our own styles, but within that, we all have the same high standards.
Excitingly, we’ve been named collectively as ‘Celebrant of the Year’ at the 2013 WEOA Awards. Weddings and Events of Australia is one of the industry umbrella organisations. This is how they describe the awards on their website:
The inaugural Weddings and Events of Australia (WEOA) ‘Awards for Excellence’ has been created to recognise excellence in business practice across the Weddings Industry. It has been developed to encourage the achievements of individuals and businesses that have demonstrated outstanding expertise in their field and aspire to achieve their personal and professional goals.
Here are my very happy colleagues Liz, Kath and Sarah on the red carpet in Sydney with the trophy.
So great news for us! I’m so pleased that our hard work making a positive difference to people on one of the biggest and most important days of their lives has been recognised by our industry partners. Onwards and upwards!
