#3 Talking Business: Being Authentically Yourself with Celebrant Robyn Pattison The Feel Good Wedding Podcast by Polka Dot Wedding

    • Fashion & Beauty

TALKING BUSINESS
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 notThe importance of finding your people as a wedding vendorBreaking the rules and doing things your wayBringing joy to ceremonies and weddingsHow to work out if a couple aligns with a vendorWhy learning the languages of the couples & their families is important to herAnd how connection beats perfection, every timeOn 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.
