Congratulations on your engagement and commitment to marry.

Planning your own wedding can be one of the most exciting and creative things you will do in your life. Be assured I am here to help make it just that little bit smoother for you as your Marriage Celebrant.

The role of a Marriage Celebrant is to really listen to what you want for your wedding ceremony. I can also assist you with ideas that might be unique to you and your family and ensure everyone is part of your special day.  A civil marriage ceremony gives you the complete freedom to create a wedding ceremony that reflects your feelings, personality and beliefs. 


Your wedding ceremony will be personalised to suit your individual needs, and presented in a professional, relaxed and friendly way. Let me work with you to create the wedding ceremony that you want, that is personal and special to you both.


Your Ceremony can be a formal occasion or more casual, include a ritual or religious element or have a theme. The choice is yours and I am there to help.  


Together I will help you create a ceremony that will be meaningful for you, and one your family and friends will remember forever. I would consider it an honour to be part of your special day.
