Pop-Up Same Sex Wedding Festival

Wednesday 14 February 2018

It’s a celebration of YES and equal rights in Australia. Now you can get married in this pop-up wedding day celebrating LOVE, and the amendment to the Marriage Act allowing same sex couples to marry.

I’m Anita Revel (Celebrant), and I’ve created this day for same sex couples wishing to marry in a simple, uplifting and beautiful way, in the Margaret River region.

Weddings will happen on-the-hour every hour on Valentine’s Day 2018.

In a pop-up wedding first, you get LOTS of choice! You can choose

  • your ceremony time,
  • your ceremony style (legals only or full package inclusions)
  • your Celebrant,
  • your ceremony location,
  • your photographer,
  • your own music, and
  • lots of optional extras!

Simply choose your preferred time-slot, register your interest via the form below, and I will forward all the paperwork you’ll need to solemnise your union.

(PS Once this festival is done, I shall revert to calling it what I’ve always called the legal union between two people in love: MARRIAGE. But for this occasion, this festival is designed to celebrate a turning point in Australia’s history and the celebration of a hard-fought battle by same sex couples and their families and supporters.)

This Pop Up Same Sex Wedding Festival is the chance for couples to marry in a simple ceremony (tailored to suit your personalities), in a private forest location in the Margaret River Region. All the details are managed for you, so all you have to do is rock UP, look fabulous, and say yes!

Wedding Season 2017-18: Let’s Break Some Traditional Wedding Rules!

elope in Margaret River Celebrant Anita RevelNormally I can rely on a three month lull during winter to head overseas and enjoy some sunshine… Not this year! Wedding season launched with a spectacular winter wedding, and has just kept rolling along. It appears traditional wedding rules are gearing up to be broken by couples prepared to think outside the box.

I do love every single wedding I do, and so that I’ll remember (and cherish) them all forever, I write down my impressions and recollections of ceremonies I’ve conducted. Here are my stories from my 2017-18 season…

wedding season 2016-17

celebrant margaret river anita revelWedding season normally starts off with a trickle in September and ending in May. This season, however, I came home from my three months off, and hit the ground running with four weddings and a funeral — literally — in my first week home. So it appears no season is ever the same, (which is a good thing — it keeps things interesting!)

So as is my custom, here are my impressions and recollections of ceremonies I’ve conducted.

Funeral Celebrant Margaret River

thoughts from a funeral service

I have spent the last eight years helping couples enjoy one of the most important days of their lives: solemnising their marriage. Now, as I become ever more respectful and in awe of the rites of passages that mark our lives, the time has come to open my heart to embrace the honour and privilege of being a Funeral Celebrant, also.

In my capacity as an Independent Funeral Celebrant, I am not aligned or contracted to any particular Funeral Director or Funeral Home. You can contract me directly to design and conduct the ceremony for your loved one. Ph me on 0417937436 to check my availability to conduct a funeral ceremony in the Margaret River region.

It will be my honour to “hold the space” for you and your guests to remember your loved in a real, meaningful and gentle way.

Winner: “Services Industry Award” (South West Business Awards 2014)

business awards winner Anita Revel Celebrant Margaret RiverHoly awesomesauce, I am a business awards winner!

On the evening of 21 June 2014, over 300 people gathered at the Lighthouse Beach Resort in Bunbury to eat, drink and soak up the fabulous vibes of all the doers and achievers.

To be honest, I was in awe of the combined talent in that room, and even felt slightly intimidated that my little business looked like a baby in comparison to some others in the running for Awards.
