My husband and I were married by a Civil Marriage Celebrant years ago. My parents, many family members and friends have also been married in civil ceremonies over the years. So I have a very strong association with civil marriage ceremonies and a strong belief in marriage as a lifelong partnership.
I also believe we should celebrate everything we can in our lives – we’re not here for long! I thought about the role for several years before training as a Civil Celebrant. I’m now available and experienced to assist couples prepare for their most enjoyable and memorable wedding ceremony!
I worked in a professional managerial role for many years. From that role I bring expertise and skills to my role as a Celebrant, including the enjoyment of meeting new people; being organised; the ability to prepare and conduct written presentations in a variety of settings; personal presentation appropriate to the occasion as well as good time management. I see these as some of the essential elements to understanding your requirements for your personal ceremony, enabling me to prepare and conduct a meaningful, memorable civil marriage ceremony. My full time role as a Civil Celebrant helps me stay connected and involved in a happy and vibrant community!
I have a sense of fun, enjoy life and celebrations and being creative. I’ve travelled widely with my family. I enjoyed my time as a volunteer with the Snowy Hydro South Care Rescue Helicopter. I’m a volunteer Celebrant with the My Wedding Wish, a charity providing free and complete wedding ceremonies to couples, where one partner has a diagnosed life threatening illness. Recently I’ve joined the ladies organising the give-back scheme for local school students, “Frox and Sox”, offering outfits so all kids can attend their school formals!
As an active member of the Australian Marriage Celebrants Association – one of the largest Celebrant Association in Australia – I am covered for Professional Indemnity, Public Liability, Copyright Insurance and have access to Celebrant forums connecting with Celebrants throughout Australia, sharing experiences, knowledge and resources.
I look forward to meeting you and your families and trust that I will be just the right Marriage Celebrant for you and your “day of a lifetime”!
