Let’s discuss your Wedding

One of the most important things you’ll need to tick off of your wedding checklist is a marriage celebrant – that’s where I step in!
As a young girl, I grew up in the wedding industry surrounded by the beauty and love of weddings!! I wanted to follow my heart, fulfil my passion, my dream and follow in my mothers footsteps to become a Civil Celebrant. I was appointed as a Civil Celebrant in September of 2004. Since then I have been very honoured and privileged to have shared in many beautiful ceremonies, including 500+ wedding ceremonies. I have loved each and every ceremony I have ever performed and I look forward to each and every future ceremony that may come my way. I love weddings and I’m always excited to be a part of your special day. I work with you to bring your ideas to life; sharing your stories and bringing the excitement of your ceremony to be the most memorable day of your life.
I believe that your wedding should be as individual as you are and I will work with you to help you plan the perfect ceremony for you, your family and friends. You can be assured that I, as Your Celebrant, will provide for you a very special, unique and most importantly, a relaxed and memorable ceremony you will cherish always and forever.
I invite you to my home office for an obligation free ‘meet & greet’. Here we can meet, discuss your ceremony plans, I can guide you through the ceremony steps leading up to your special day and if you decide to, we can lodge the necessary documentation, which I have on hand.
Let’s discuss your Wedding dreams!
Renewal of Vows
The Renewal of your Marriage Vows is a beautiful way solidify the journey of your marriage and recreate or renew amazing moments that have made it yours!
You can also attach meaningful traditions and ritual personal to you and your partners journey. You may want to show your love & commitment to each other in front of family & friends on reaching a significant anniversary; or because you were married or eloped overseas; or just because you want to!
The term commitment ceremony refers to a ceremony which publicly or privately proclaims or affirms the commitment a couple is making to one another.
This can be used as desired and is popular with both same-sex and opposite-sex couples. We create a ceremony together to show your commitment to each other including your own love story. It has also been used as an alternative ceremony to have with family & friends who can’t make it to your overseas or interstate wedding!
Naming Day Ceremonies
Congratulations on welcoming a new life into the world! A new child is a joyous occasion.
A Naming Ceremony is a chance to remind everyone of the great responsibility involved in raising a child and to recognise those who will have an important role in your child’s development. During the naming ceremony parents are reminded and made more fully aware of their responsibilities, as are the godparents (also called, “mentors” or “guardians”) and grandparents.
I can work with you both to create a ceremony of significance to mark any special event.
