It is a coincident that Alison and Kieran should appear in the Sunday Telegraph last Sunday – as it happens, I had already planned to have Keith Lammond as the next featured Wedding Professional and Keith was the celebrant for Alison and Kieran,s wedding. Keith’s ceremonies are full of heart and personality, he is very concerned with the happiness of the couple and ensures that it reflects the couple’s wishes and desires. Keith is also the President and a life member of Australian Wedding Celebrants Inc.
