Name: Bex The Celebrant

Category: Celebrants

I became a wedding photographer in: 2020

 

 

How did you get into this industry/What made you pursue a career in this industry?

I ALWAYS knew I wanted to work in the wedding industry but had no idea how? I know I love love, weddings, creating happy memories and having fun. When a friend suggested being a celebrant, my response was 'What's that?!' - when I looked into it, it suited me perfectly! Creating a gorgeous, memorable, unique day for happy couples, and having a bloody lovely time. And I get to dress up nice for weddings which is a FAVE of mine! I trained up in it and then started my hustle. I put a lot of work into my branding/website and social media (I did it all myself so very personal), and here we are! 

What excites you most about your job?

The initial consultation with a couple, seeing what ideas they have, whether we click or not, pitching myself to them and starting to already get excited about their day. Then when I send them their first draft... which is both daunting and exciting! Getting the initial feedback (usually 'WE LOVE IT!') is brilliant. But of course the day itself... oh I just love it all!

I spend my days doing a mix of my 'day job' and my wedding work. When I finish my 'day job' I focus all my efforts and energy on weddings.

Is this your full-time job or do you do it alongside another job?

I am also a TV producer, but the two go hand in hand and as I work freelance I'm able to take time out to focus on weddings when I need to. So I'm never too distracted to put my all into them!

How do you switch off from work?

Honestly? I don't. I spend my days doing a mix of my 'day job' and my wedding work. When I finish my 'day job' I focus all my efforts and energy on weddings. I don't really have downtime, but I love it. Because I love what I do, I never feel like I'm doing work! So if you get a reply to an email at 11pm... don't be surprised. I'm just always on my phone! (I do need to learn how to get better at this.)
