I don’t want to come across as a show-off, but I do want to let you know that if you are after a wedding celebrant with experience, personality and skill, you’re in the right place.
First of all, I am friendly, fun and cheeky, so your ceremony won’t be dull or boring.
I also genuinely like and get on easily with people. So you will feel relaxed with me.
Also, I have a knack of listening and gathering information so that your ceremony is as meaningful and unique as you.
I am open to whatever expression of love you wish, but I don’t do ceremonies that are cheesy or sexist.
Finally, I am experienced! Not just as a wedding celebrant, writer and presenter, but also as a wife and mother.
Why I love being a wedding celebrant
I love the countless ways in which people first meet and the story of how they’ve gone about creating a life together.
I enjoy working intimately with couples to create their ceremony.
I like to mingle with the guests before the ceremony
I love the moment when the ceremony starts. I have the perfect view to see the faces of the guests, and the couple.
The vows! It’s an incredibly special and precious moment.
Being part of “history in the making” with the couple, and their families.
A little bit more about me
Well, I am married to Joe (28 years), and it’s really good! We have our share of challenges, but we have more ups than downs. We have three incredible kids, who are young adults. They like to annoy me, and vice versa.
I am an avid supporter of Marriage Equality. I’m waiting for the Australian Marriage Act to change so that any two people can marry whomever they choose.
I marched in the last Sydney Mardi Gras Parade with a whole bunch of celebrants to show our support to the LGBTQI community. I’ll keep campaigning because I want Australia to be a diverse, egalitarian and loving society.
What you really need to know about me
As a registered Marriage Celebrant, I abide by the Attorney General’s Code of Practice and I complete professional development every year.
I always give you a copy of the ceremony before your wedding, because if I was getting married I’d like to know what my celebrant was going to say.
I ask what you’d like me to wear, so that I blend with your style. And if you want a themed wedding, I’m keen on a dress-up.
I like to work with your photographer to capture the emotions throughout your ceremony. I also make a conscious effort not to get in all your photos – especially during the vows and the exchange of rings.
I arrive at least 30 minutes before the ceremony to set up and to liaison with your suppliers, and mingle with your guests.
I don’t start packing away 5 minutes after the ceremony either. I always hang around for awhile, mingle and enjoy the celebrations.
And, I’m practical, down-to-earth so if I see a need, I try to fix it – whether that’s straightening the groom’s tie before the ceremony, lining up chairs, or attending to a guest,etc
I want to marry you!
