In today’s episode, Yvette welcomes a special guest to the show, wedding celebrant Leanne Booker. Leanne is an experienced Brisbane-based celebrant that takes pride in creating unique and personal ceremonies.

Listen in as Leanne shares her wisdom on all things ceremonies from intimate weddings and elopements to her tips for finding the right celebrant for you and your partner.
