When you first begin planning your wedding, everything is beautiful – flowers, gowns and cakes abound. Then, after endless hours of googling, trying to find the perfect ‘this’ or the right ‘that’, it all starts to get a bit much and eloping starts sounding pretty appealing. Who thought there’d be so much searching? Seeking Myrtle did!

The Myrtles realised Canberra and the surrounding regions of the Riverina, Southern Highlands and South Coast, needed a wedding hub just for them. Somewhere a couple could go and have all the hottest vendors right in front of them – gorgeously styled, of course.

What they were looking for was Seeking Myrtle. Seeking Myrtle is the place to find a dress you love, a tux he’ll love, and a cake everyone will love. They’re a special kind of online wedding directory. For starters, they’re local, run by a group of local communications professionals. They’re joyful and fun, just the kind of energy you would like your wedding to have.

“We wanted to add some bliss back into the wedding planning process by making it easy and pretty. We have created a website that’s visually beautiful, simple to navigate and showcases local wedding businesses. At a glance, couples can compare vendors across all wedding categories or they can check out our blog for more detailed exposés and wedding trends.” said Amanda Peake, Myrtle’s maker.

Amanda established Seeking Myrtle in 2016. With marketing, communication and education expertise, Myrtle was drawn from a love of Canberra, empowering local businesses and giving talented wedding industry creatives a directory worthy of them.

And why the name Seeking Myrtle? Amanda says, “We’re glad you asked! Ancient Romans and modern royals have all used a sprig of myrtle in their wedding bouquets. The Greek Goddess of love, Aphrodite, loved it too. And now it represents a place where couples can find all of the most delightful local wedding vendors in one, beautiful online spot.”

I guess we will all now be on the lookout for Myrtle in Megan Markle’s wedding bouquet for her upcoming nuptials!

Amanda shares that from the homepage, you can search for just about anything wedding related. Know what you need? Type in a keyword. Just looking? Browse the categories. Each vendor has their own custom written listing with a gallery of images and all of their contact details right there. You can click directly on their website or grab their contact details and get in touch straight away.

Or open up the ‘Blog’ section for inspiration, check out feature weddings for snaffling some ideas, check out vendor profiles to meet local businesses, and wedding trends articles to see what’s hot in weddings locally and around the world. Myrtle brings the best of local wedding businesses right to your fingertips.

To ensure they stay on top of all the trends, Seeking Myrtle is always on the lookout for the very best florists, dessert artists, jewellery makers, hen’s parties, suits, favours, celebrants or invitations – if you’re at all connected to the wedding industry, Seeking Myrtle wants to know all about it.

“We love our couples and to keep bringing them a high-quality product, we need to find the greatest local businesses. Our team is made up of people who grew up in the regions we cover – we love local because we ARE locals – and we’re keen to get to know all vendors.”
