Do We Need A Rehearsal?

Wedding Rehearsals. Are they really necessary?

Well, yes. And no.

In this episode of The Wedding Wombat, we look at rehearsals and help couples work out if they need one or not.

Smash the Patriarchy!

In this episode of The Wedding Wombat, we look at traditions in the lead up to a wedding and whether we need to consider their patriarchal influences. Keep, embrace, question or smash the patriarchy? Your choice- but whatever you choose, this is an important conversation to have and consider.

We mostly focus on heterosexual couples in this episode as same-sex couples already navigate these questions to suit them already, whilst straight couples have tradition and expectation to potentially rebel against or adjust to be real for them!

As always, we love your feedback and reviews. Share this podcast so we can help as many couples planning their big day!

To change or not change?

In this episode, we explore the issues surrounding whether you should change or not change your surname. I share an insightful article by Soraya Kishtwari that she wrote for HuffPost. The original article can be read here- and I share TWO Top Fives this episode- the Top 5 Reasons TO change your name and the Top 5 Reasons NOT to change your name. The Wedding Wombat was always designed to challenge stereotypes and question traditions and this episode does just that!

If you are planning your wedding, feel free to contact me to be your Celebrant, MC or just for some advice or support- I’m here for you!

Covid Couples Catch Up

Welcome friends to another episode of The Wedding Wombat!

I thought in this episode I’d catch you up on how the weddings went for the couples I interviewed about their Coronavirus weddings.

Yes, there was a register for names and yes, there was sanitiser on tap and yes there were elbows of congratulations but there was so much more- and I’m going to tell all- today on The Wedding Wombat.

Find out how Destinee and Ben’s wedding went from Episode 11 and how Cat and Jono fared from Episode 13. I’ll share about Sally and Kiel as well in this episode and give you a flavour of unique individualised ceremonies during these Covid 19 times.

Denise McCumstie, Margie's Mum

From my Mum to Yours xx

This episode is our special Mother’s Day edition where we talk about being Mother of the Bride or Mother of the Groom with my Mum! I surprise my Mum with my first visit since Covid-19 changed everything and after we tearfully resisted the desire to wrap each other in a loving cuddle, we got down to chatting about the duties and thoughts about traditions and modern day takes on being the proud Mother. I love my Mum and in this episode I get to share her with you. If you are getting married, this is the perfect episode to recommend to your Mum.

Destinee, Covid 19 Bride

Covid 19 Couple

This episode we meet Destinee who has brought her wedding to Ben forward to be a Covid 19 bride! Before you think she is bonkers, you should listen to this episode to hear about her plans and why they are getting married at the end of May.

If you are tossing up what to do, here is one approach to consider! Destinee and I had a great chat with quite a few giggles along the way- hope you enjoy it too.
