My Philosophy: Your Day – Your Way
I create the most significant beginning of your future. This moment changes your life forever. It is the start of the rest of your life together and your amazing ceremony places an indelible mark on your memory.
I am very excited that now I can marry ALL couples that love each other.
Choosing the right celebrant is the most important decision that you will make for your wedding ceremony.
I have been an Authorised Marriage Celebrant since 2010 and am passionate about being part of making peoples’ dreams come true on their wedding day.
I offer two options for weddings – see my Fees and Service page
I craft – provide many ideas – have many suggestions – but the final decisions are yours. You are the most important people on this day. I make it a day both you and your guests will remember fondly forever. The only limitation to the most beautiful wedding ceremony is your imagination.
I will take care of all the details so your wedding ceremony will be stress-free.
As well as first-time weddings, I particularly enjoy celebrating ‘second/third/fourth time around’ weddings. The coming together of two people in love, to begin sharing their lives, provides the opportunity for a day of celebration and joy! Let me share that day with you in creating the wedding ceremony of your choice.
