Everyday Life Celebrant

Hello, and a huge congratulations, on your exciting decision to get married!

At Everyday Life Celebrant I know how important it is to select the right celebrant for your ceremony, so let me tell you a little bit about my philosophy on ceremony and how I work.

At Everyday Life Celebrant I believe that ceremony captures the moments that really matter in life - your life I will customise your ceremony to reflect you, in a fresh, fun and meaningful way. This means I want to hear your stories: how you met, what’s important in your relationship, and let’s not forget the quirks and contradictions that make you fabulous individuals, along with your future aspirations as a couple, and together we will bring your stories to life, making your ceremony UNIQUE - truly your own.

Professional Skills

Over the years I have been actively involved in the arts community, as a Speech and Drama teacher, a Theatre Practitioner, and Marlborough’s Arts Co-ordinator. I also worked alongside local businesses, establishing the Marlborough Farmers Market and most recently my own start-up business - CPR Coffee Roasters. In 2011, I was awarded the HER Marlborough Business Woman of the year.

Because of my professional background in training in performance, and public speaking I am able to create 'unique and customized ceremonies', and perform, and deliver celebrations that I believe honour life’s transitions. I am also able to share this skill through coaching your family and friends, with readings and social speeches in preparation for a ceremony.

I look forward to meeting with you both and together we can create your UNIQUE ceremony. You can check out my website for more information about me, but a quick rundown will help you decide whether I’m the right celebrant to create a UNIQUE ceremony for your special day.
