A little about me
Hello, my name is Alana Salisbury, and I would love to marry you!
There is a bit more to me than just love. I am a wife, a brunch connoisseur, coffee addict, dog lover (yes, I am that girl who chats to everyone’s dogs, so feel free to bring your dog with you when we meet) and I prefer winter over summer.
Born and raised in Adelaide, I moved to Melbourne in 2011 where I’ve developed my love for public speaking, having hosted charity events, beauty pageants, and even MC-ing wedding receptions!
While I was loving this side of my life, as I entered my mid-30s I realised that I’ve been a guest at more weddings than you could toss a bouquet at – my own included – and one factor that many weddings have in common is a celebrant who tries to take centre stage. Whether they come unprepared, kick off with an impromptu stand-up act, or haven’t taken the time to truly understand the couple getting married, I’ve seen it all.
My belief is that the spotlight should remain firmly planted where it belongs – on you and your guests! So, after seeing the best and worst that wedding celebrants have to offer, I took my love of love and mixed it with a dash of storytelling, a sprinkling of public speaking, a healthy amount of creativity, and a light dusting of humour to create Alana With Love – a bespoke celebrant service for couples who want a celebrant to guide them through their big day, not steal the spotlight on it.
Whether you’re after something traditional or quirky, in front of 5 of your nearest and dearest or 500, it would be my honour and privilege to guide you to your perfect, unique, and “100% you” ceremony.
If this sounds like your cup of tea, reach out to arrange a no obligation, no stress meeting over a coffee, tea, or even a cheeky bubbly where you can share your love story and your dreams for the big day.
