Congratulations if you are recently engaged and you are looking for the perfect marriage celebrant to celebrate with you! Choosing your celebrant requires trust and a lot of couples just don't know where to start. With 14 years in the industry and having conducted well over 1000 weddings, I still get so excited that your new chapter is just beginning - that 'just married' feeling and giving you a ceremony with authenticity is important to me. As a qualified Justice of the Peace, you can be assured that I will take care of all the paperwork with warmth, genuine caring and professional service creating beautiful memories just for you and your guests. In most cases, I only book one wedding a day to fully focus on the two of you. If you'd like to see video footage of my work, please visit my 'Home' page.
Many couples can tell me the date, the time, colours etc of their wedding but have no idea as to what to do next and this is where I can help design a ceremony that reflects you. I am there by your side gently reassuring you both every step of the way and I promise to hold your hand from the planning stages through to the wedding day and directly following in the lodgement of all your paperwork and in applying for the registered marriage certificate. I offer packages catering for different requirements so that you're not paying for things you may not want or need and these start at $350* up to $1000 - *strict conditions apply.
If you want to write your own vows but are short on time or simply too overwhelmed, I give strategies to use as a starting point or sample vows to suit you and together, we create a ceremony to remember. Marriage is a notable step in anyone's life and should be celebrated and your ceremony sets the tone for the rest of the days' celebrations.
Poetry or readings are available if you want to include them and your ceremony should be a unique reflection of your customs, beliefs, family traditions or your own personal story as a couple. Inclusions are limited only by your imagination or you may simply like to honour your past for you to begin your new future together. Some couples just want as simple ceremony as possible and have the focus on the party afterward with your guests - it can be as short & sweet, full of laughter and joy, fun and funky, solemn and serious, traditional or themed - it's as you dreamt it would to be.
If you get caught up in the little things, try not to micro-manage or it will become way too overwhelming: bring it back to why you are marrying and keep that love and tenderness as your focus. Trust in the professionals and cherish the days ahead as they go by so very quickly and lastly, on your wedding day, take the time to have a few minutes to yourself to relax, reflect, enjoy & embrace your feelings with grace, ready for you to share an amazing day in your new role as husband, wife, spouse or partner in marriage. Beautiful ceremonies create beautiful memories! Please give me a call as I'd be happy to talk to you or click on the 'Contact' tab at the top of my page to send me an email.
