Things that I love: chocolate, hugs, the word 'cherish', ladybirds, fresh sheets, fresh flowers, sunshine, cooking, celebrations, music, silk, tea, eclectic reader, avid movie buff, bubbles, travel, antiques, weddings, watching the footy (all codes), art, Christmas, the smell of gardenia's and an ever growing shoe collection! I am a proud supporter of ACT for Kids (formerly known as the Abused Child's Trust).
Rest assured though, my couples are my MIP's (Most Important People) I could ever hope to meet and I am privileged in sharing such a special time with you. So now you know about me...I'd love to know more about you and hear your unique story. I also respect your privacy and show discretion as well as honouring different cultural differences, traditions and religions. Some weddings are traditional, they may be themed or include special symbols as your wedding day is a celebration of your love and should be as individual as the two of you and I invite you to click onto my 'Ceremonies' page to see how I can help with other life celebrations and milestone events...

but people will never forget how you made them feel."
