Gold Coast Celebrant, Michelle Anderson, Wins Global Wedding Award

Gold Coast Celebrant Wins Global Wedding Award

Michelle Anderson, Civil Marriage Celebrant from the Gold Coast has been announced BEST OFFICIANT 2018 as LUXlife Magazine (United Kingdom) announces the winners of the Global Wedding Awards.

The awards are designed to shine the spotlight on the brightest and best professionals from across the international wedding industry highlighting dedicated individuals who work tirelessly to create truly memorable events.


Michelle Anderson, also known as Michell é brant Celebrant, is known for her relaxed, casual style of celebrating and innovative ideas in the industry. “The wedding industry is packed with amazing and talented individuals. I’m so pleased to be in the good company of professionals I consider to be my mentors.”

The award coincides with the relaunch of Express Weddings, Michelle’s inspired initiative designed to provide a high class alternative to the traditional registry office wedding.

“I believe that every couple deserves a stunning wedding, regardless of their budget.  Express Weddings provides modern alternative to a cheap registry wedding; beautiful weddings held at the deluxe riverfront venue, Helm, for less than the registry fee.”

Michelle was responsible for the Evermore Pledge project in 2017; originally made as an alternative to same-sex marriage (by an independent contract) prior to the marriage equality law change in December.  It expediated the government’s decision for a public poll and gained the attention of worldwide media.  Now it is a stand alone product that addresses the legalities for newlywed couples.

Laura Hunter, Awards Coordinator, comments, “Winners are decided by an unbiased internal panel of industry leaders who independently research each nominee to evaluate skills and expertise within their given field.

This is not a “pay-to-win” award. Specialist researchers scrutinised the candidates, putting them through a period of extensive investigation prior to judging the ultimate decision. They review supporting evidence and conduct their own independent research.”

Winner must have an ongoing commitment to excellence and innovation and deserve the highest recognition on an international platform.

The relaunch media event for Express Weddings will be held at Helm Bar Surfers Paradise on 26th October 2018 at 5pm.
