As well as sharing wonderful weddings we also want to drop in a few chats about the business of weddings, so for our third episode Dorothy (she/her) is joined by Celebrant Robyn Pattison to talk business

Robyn is a Celebrant, MC, Wedding Pixie and all-round sparkle-spreader. She’s been in the industry for about 13 years (eek) and still hasn't lost her bounce and enthusiasm for storytelling.

In this chat we discuss:

  • How it’s too exhausting (and disingenuous) to pretend to be something you’re not
  • The importance of finding your people as a wedding vendor
  • Breaking the rules and doing things your way
  • Bringing joy to ceremonies and weddings
  • How to work out if a couple aligns with a vendor
  • Why learning the languages of the couples & their families is important to her
  • And how connection beats perfection, every time

On her unique celebrant style, Robyn shares, ‘The best thing we can do is sprinkle a little joy, but it needs to be honest, real moments. You can't just say words and make them real. It's how you say it, how you connect with people. I make all my couples do homework and I go 'sucked in' but I can't stand there knowing that the only thing I leave behind me are memories and leave a bad one. So I need to feel it and I need to feel it through them for the whole process so that I can share it around and it does make a difference.’

We hope you enjoyed this episode talking business! We’d love for you to share on your socials and tag @polkadotwedding and help us to share the podcast with more people.
