Ricki + Sam

“Jam was an absolute legend to work with! Her vibe fitted ours, and she was a standout compared to other celebrants we had enquired with. She radiates happiness, fun, excitement and passion which resonated with my husband and I from the get-go! She is professional, informative and was a great help at getting us through the paperwork and vows process. We couldn't recommend her highly enough! In fact, our maid of honour and best man have even booked her for their own upcoming wedding!”


What a pair of down to earth lovers! Getting to know Ricki and Sam was like having a relaxed catch up with some old mates.

Ricki had came across me through the wonderful Wedshed directory and due to the travel distance between us we had organised an initial Skype meeting to chat about their wedding plans. We bonded over raising cheeky toddlers and wanting to bring all the good vibes to their ceremony. We then managed to organise a face to face catch up at their lovely home down the coast one weekend with my own little family coming along for a day at the beach, our toddlers had a chance to briefly practice their sharing.

Ricki and Sam’s good vibe extended well into their ceremony where all their loved ones gathered within the picturesque Old Church on Red Hill to witness these two make their heartfelt vows to each other. The weather gods turned it on that day as the showers cleared just in time for our lovers to greet each other for their adorable ‘First Look’ shoot with Kyle from Valley and Peak photography. The sun then miraculously emerged as we got the party started with Sam and Ricki’s wedding ceremony.

Ricki and Sam credit the start of their romance to their besties Sarah and Cam for hooking up and together forming what is to become an awesome foursome crew. It just happens that the awesome Sarah and Cam are also planning to get hitched later in the year, so I’ve been given the honour to come full circle and make it official for the ones who started it all. What a great bunch! I can’t wait to catch up with all these legends again for another lovefest.
