“Cheers” for our Byron Bay Wedding Celebrant!
We felt an instant connection with Jacqui. We are very busy people and Jacqui guided us the whole way with a minimum of fuss. Nothing was too much trouble and we felt like Jacqui conducted herself as a dear friend. She personalised the ceremony and the process was fun from planning to completion. It is impossible to commend Jacqui enough for her professionalism and consideration.’ – Glen & Lea – SUNNYBANK HILLS QLD

Survivor takes on world
Lennox Head woman takes on bodybuilding title
She survived Survivor and now Lennox Head’s Jacqui Patterson has ticked off another bucket list item by taking out her category in a world body building contest at the Gold Coast.
The 51-year-old, who competed on last year’s season of the reality show Survivor, recently won the over 50’s category at the World ICN bodybuilding titles against five other competitors.
The result is all the more pleasing for Jacqui as she was injured on Survivor – she had four screws in her shoulder after the show – then she battled a stage two melanoma.
Taking a positive attitude, the woman who has always been a “fitness nut”, took up strength training in June to help with rehabilitation of her shoulder.
“I’ve really never done strength training before,” she said.
“But I did have a good base to start with – I’ve always worked out in a gym.”
Jacqui also entered the over-40’s category in the same competition to give the “younger girls a run for their money” and came fourth.
“I love a challenge, and having a goal.”
“This (strength training) is something I’ve always wanted to do. I live and breather fitness.”
She trained six days a week to prepare for the bodybuilding competition for about an hour a day.
While she thanked her coach, she said her diet was important.
“Six packs aren’t made in the gym, they’re made in the supermarket.”
She has always been very conscious about what she eats, so her calorie controlled preparation was nothing new.
As for what’s next, she said she would love to appear on Survivor All Stars show – “I’d do that in a heartbeat.”
In the meantime, she continues training and marrying people as a marriage celebrant.
