Why choose me as your celebrant
Being a marriage and civil union celebrant is not just a job or career for me.........I see it is as both an honour and privilege.  I want nothing more that to provide you with a truly magical ceremony.  I would like to guide you through the process and leave you both with wonderful memories of your day.  I am a down to earth mother of three wonderful kids with a great sense of humour.  I am a warm, caring and empathetic person and will listen to you both and honour your wishes.

My Story

I am a 43 year old mum of 3 amazing children and 4 step children.  My husband and I had been together for 10 years before we decided to embark on the marriage adventure.  Yes, I know........ we did everything backwards!  My story is a little gloomy I'm afraid.  As a nervous bride to be, I looked to my celebrant for guidance, advice and ideas.  Sadly, my husband and I were offered nothing more than a very impersonal and disappointing ceremony.  We had no idea what to expect or what was out there for couples embarking on marriage and as a result, basically did what we were told.  I decided then and there that I never wanted a bride or groom to be as disappointed as I was and that through my sad experience, I could give faith and hope to other couples embarking on this journey.  Younger or older, couples with or without children, blended families and couples going 2nd time and even 3rd time around.  I will give you all my total respect, professionalism and commitment.

My Commitment to you......

This magical day is about you and your fiance.  I am here to help you through the process of becoming husband & wife or civil union partners.  I will listen, and honour your wishes.  I will be available to you both throughout the whole process.  I will take your commitment to each other seriously and help you to full fill your ceremony wishes.

Over the years, I have come up with a full proof strategy of helping you both through the process with as little or no stress at all.  I give you heaps of ideas, templates, traditional options and advice (when wanted!) I guide you through the process of applying for your license and keep you on track.  If your taking too long, I'm not afraid to hurry you up!
