There’s nothing better than proving wrong the Doubting Thomases of the world. You know who you are, and I couldn’t be happier to show you just how wrong you were. It’s true that my business is of the niche persuasion, and perhaps even a little unorthodox, but no one ever achieved success by playing by the rules. Someone famous said that once, I’m sure. There is an untapped market for pet celebrants, and I’m here to provide for it.

Today I took the first steps towards setting up the office space of my dreams. This time, I’m building it from the ground up, at least as far as the interior is concerned. It’s probably not necessary to completely rebuild, but there’s going to be some very serious remodelling. You see, my clients expect a certain level of aesthetic taste from me. My workspace has to present with both style and substance. Of course, it must also cater to their four-legged ways without degrading them sitting on the floor.

In Melbourne, office fitouts are rapidly evolving, and I think this is a great opportunity to embrace a new paradigm. It’s a design challenge, to be sure. That’s why I’m tracking down a team of the very best office designers. Melbourne has me spoiled for choice on this front, and I’m slowly compiling a shortlist. Not too many of them have experience in designing for non-human animals, which I hope won’t be a problem. I don’t think it will be, given their credentials.

I will need them to shadow me in my work for a few days to really understand what it is I’m looking to achieve: an environment that makes my clients feel like top dog and/or the cat that’s got the cream ahead of their big day. It’s all about setting up a lasting union, after all – that’s the way I’ve always seen it. A wedding, like an office, can be more than the sum of its parts.
