Who we are

 who we are graphic

When it comes to conducting weddings, elopements, vow renewals and commitment ceremonies, the team at Equality & Elegance ceremonies are enthusiastic celebrants who are experienced and enthusiastic about their job. We have three celebrants, all of whom have years of experiencing performing a variety of different styled weddings and ceremonies.

William Schmidt

William has been a celebrant for over 25 years. He was born in Dallas, Texas and has 3 siblings. Married for over 22 years, William is most enthusiastic when meeting couples keen to get the most fun out of their special day. A father of two teenage sons, William believes that being part of somebody’s wedding day and helping to make the bride and groom’s job much less stressful is key to making the day a success.

Kelly-Anne Grady

Kelly-Anne is our most junior celebrant and in that, I am saying she has ONLY had 12 years’ experience performing weddings! Kelly-Anne is our elopement specialist and is ever enthused about couples who decide to escape to the hills for an intimate wedding over that of the more traditional kind. “It’s the look of adventure in their eyes that I love. You can see they love each other but they are just so happy to do it anywhere if they are together. I love that” She says. Kelly-Anne is married to her husband Chad and has been for the past 7 years. She yearns to help others celebrate their special day knowing just how happy hers was when she married the love of her life.

Nedward Forest

Ned is the most bubbly, infectious character you would ever wish to meet. Growing up on a rural farmland in Ohio, Ned was one of 7 boys. As such he has learned early to speak up and speak often! His parents recently celebrated 50 years of marriage and it is there love and passion that drives him to help others find a similar spark. Married for 13 years to his lovely wife Harriet, he is the father of 3 boys.
