Episode 2 – Josh Withers, The Celebrant of Fun – Part 1

Welcome to episode two of The Celebration Show, and our interview with the terrific Josh Withers!

Thank you for dropping in again to our show. I had great fun this week and we ended up recording over 80 minutes of content. I have learned from past shows that it is good to keep a show under an hour. Rather than take a chainsaw to my time with Josh, I have split our time into two segments, and you will be able to hear part two next week.

In this first part we discuss Josh’s path from his start in radio to his amazing business success, and his continuing rise to celebrant stardom. He talks about how he works with couples, and how he works to make every ceremony truly fun for his couples.

Once again, I would love to hear your feedback, and if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions please do send them in. I’d be happy to give you, and your business, a shout out in a later show.

We have some great interviews coming up between now and the New Year, covering a wide range of topics, from the law to Unity Rituals, so stay tuned, and if you like what you hear why not drop in at iTunes and leave a review to let others know what you think. As with our work as wedding professionals, reviews are the very best way you can say thank you if we have helped you find a smile.

Happy listening, and don’t forget to make life a celebration!

Meet our Interviewee, Josh Withers, The Celebrant of Fun

The Celebration Show - Episode 2 - Josh WithersWhere to begin about the wonderful Mr Josh Withers! Here he is in his own words….

“The only celebrant in Australia that likes chocolate peanut butter ice cream. Seriously. I asked everyone. I’m also a celebrant that thinks that the best part of any wedding is the ceremony, and the best part of any ceremony is the two peeps in the middle getting married. That my friends is awesome. I rock a loud and professional wireless PA system and I devote my every moment not watching Star Wars to creating sweet sweet wedding ceremonies. My local fee for Brisbane and the Gold Coast is $1200 including GST, legals and PA system and for further abroad, shoot me an email!”
