For me, a wedding ceremony should be professional, fun and personal. A time in your life where you take that deep breath, look at each other, have a cheeky smile and say "We are about to get married!"
Simple and stylish or all the bells and whistles, I try and make each ceremony unique.
I am a Canberra based celebrant but I also travel as far as the South Coast, down to Cooma and up to the Kangaroo Valley. In fact, I don't mind travelling anywhere to help celebrate a wedding.
I have just returned from working overseas for a few years and have plenty of dates available. Contact me today for a no-obligation meeting where we can chat, laugh and create.
A little bit about me....
I initially became a celebrant in 2011, friends were looking for someone who could help make their ceremony fun, relaxed and personable. Sooo... with a few months of legal jargon to learn, thinking of ideas to help create a unique ceremony and practising my celebrant's voice, I became an official Marriage Celebrant.
I have a teaching background and a love of travelling. I've combined these two on a number of occasions. I enjoy meeting new people, learning a little bit about them and trying to create a ceremony that they (and their guests) will remember forever.
What do I include when you get me as a marriage celebrant?
A very professional yet friendly approach in helping you put in place your own wedding ceremony.
A ceremony that is individually written and designed to tell your story.
The ability and experience to work with ceremonies that involve different nationalities.
Assistance and examples to help you write your vows.
Beautifully presented marriage certificate.
Lodgement of all legal documentation.
Reliable PA system with wireless microphone.
Stylish table and chairs for signing paperwork on the day.
So what happens first....
There is some legal paperwork that needs to be completed at least a month before your ceremony. It's called a Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM) and I can take care of that straight away at no cost.
Then - planning the ceremony! For most people, if you’re given a blank piece of paper and told to go away and start working on a ceremony, you’ll still be staring at a blank piece of paper two weeks later. So I normally start by working with you to put a basic outline for your ceremony in place - it gives you a template to start working with.
I have plenty of readings, poems and ideas which you can use for the day or act as inspiration for your own plans.
