What happens when a group of like minded, forward thinking Celebrants get together? MCA aka Modern Celebrants Adelaide!
I had a chat with Vic, Pen, Cam and Bec today from Modern Celebrants Adelaide. These ladies are a lot of fun and as we laughed our way through our chat this is what they told me…..
How did you get to know each other?
Cam and Vic have been friends for many years… Then Vicky had a chance to meet Penelope at another wedding (of course). There are only so many Saturdays in a year so we were already referring couples to each other if we were already booked. Then we met Rebecca at our annual Ongoing Professional Development at the Australian Federation of Civil Marriage Celebrants (which keeps them up to date with changes in legislation and builds their celebrant skills). Bec is also a member of the Australian Federation of Civil Celebrants and she came up with this wonderful idea of creating a group of modern like-minded celebrants that could work along side each other and basically it would formalise the referral process that was already happening. So we joined forces.
How long have you all been celebrants for?
Between all of us we have 15 plus years of creating ceremonies. We are all professional Celebrants and we absolutely love our work. What an exciting and joyous celebration to be a part of as your profession?
What made you decide to create MCA?
Life is so busy already and then we add planning a wedding into the mix. We have all been recently married ourselves so we get it… our couples need a relaxed and simple, ceremony-planning process. We don’t want our Brides and Grooms to feel stressed about booking a professional celebrant and planning their perfect ceremony, so we created Modern Celebrants Adelaide so you have a choice of 4 enthusiastic and engaging, professional Celebrants all in one place. If one of us is already booked for the date you have in mind we are in constant contact with one another and will find out which one of the ladies is available and send you their details. It’s that simple.
What’s different about MCA?
Security in numbers…although in all the years that we have been performing ceremonies we have not needed to call on a “back up celebrant”. We want our couples to feel secure in their booking. So Modern Celebrants Adelaide offers our Brides and Grooms peace of mind that if for any reason one of us is not able to perform their ceremony due to sickness or an emergency then we will pool our resources to come up with a solution to the problem. Offering them a safety net or celebrant net lol sorry that was sad.
