RONDA HIPWELL – Marriage Celebrant
Hi, I’m Ronda.
Seeing two individuals commit themselves to each other in such a meaningful way; being part of the culmination and the beginning of a new chapter in a couple’s love story; seeing so many happy people celebrating this special moment in time; witnessing such a mixture of emotions – joy, awe, tears, nerves; witnessing the joining of two families; hearing individual couple’s love stories, they are all different; joining in with the laughter and happiness that surrounds this time. These are the things which I love and which keeps my passion for ceremonies alive.
Favourite Love Song
At Last by Etta James always brings tears to my eyes and gives me goose bumps.
Love is wonderful.
Time has taught me that love is all encompassing, truly heartfelt and a wonder. To be truly loved means safety, reassurance, comfort, friendship, consideration, belonging. Love is a two way street where communication, consideration and sharing needs to happen to keep the love alive and for complacency not to take hold. Love can be felt by a special look, a special smile, a soft touch. As time goes on love continues to grow, it never really stops growing.
