Kicking off our 20 Questions segment is none other than Candice from Celebrations by Candice
Candice is your go-to gal for wedding ceremonies big or small and elopements and after 10 years of being a journalist-turned-wedding celebrant, she really knows how to tell a good story! I've known Candice professionally for a few years and the way she performs weddings really aligns with our values as a wedding supplier - she's friendly, outgoing personable and make sure the wedding ceremony is all about the couple. If she's not at a wedding, she is more likely working on incredible fundraisers, volunteering as a Justice of the Peace or spending time with her beautiful family.

My mum, work, and remembering what sleep felt like!
