Celebrating and marking life events is what binds us together as family, as friends and as a community.

I became a celebrant because I wanted to bring a fresh approach to the traditional, bringing together ceremonies that are memorable, personal and right for you.

On your special day, I would like you and your partner to come away feeling complete – knowing that your ceremony reflected the best parts of you and what has brought you together. Creative, humorous, relaxed, poignant, traditional – I will help you find the right balance.

Your day will go very fast, and as your celebrant, I will give you the confidence of a professional, personal and intimate ceremony – creating moments and memories that will last a lifetime.

As a Licenced Marriage and Civil Union Celebrant, I am pleased to offer two celebrant packages for your consideration:

DIY Design
Do you have the perfect person to conduct your ceremony – but they’re not licenced? Are you able to write your own ceremony, but just need a little advice in pulling it together? I am able to meet with you to provide that guidance and structure. On the day, I will also facilitate the vow portion of your ceremony and sign the register with you.

Full-Service Ceremony
I will meet with you to understand your vision of how your special day will unfold. I will coordinate the bringing together of all ceremony elements including readings, vows, ring exchange and other customs. My goal is to work alongside you to ensure your ceremony is personal and unique.
On your special day, in addition to facilitating your ceremony, I will spend time with you both and your wedding party to provide that calm, down to earth coordination of events required to allow you to be present in the moment.
