As a Marriage Celebrant I offer a very friendly service. I will work with you both to ensure your ceremony is going to be fun, relaxed, enjoyable and most importantly, what you both want. I will give you friendly and professional care with all the legal requirements taken care of.
I love what I do and bring a joyful presence to every ceremony. I have an eye for detail and a calming presence that will help you and your family relax and enjoy your special day – which I am sure is a high priority. I will arrive at your venue at least thirty minutes before the start time to make sure everything is ready to go; and I also stay and chat with you and your guests for a short while afterwards. I want your ceremony to be very special, relaxed and friendly.
Whether you have already set a date or not for the big day - congratulate yourself either way, you have obviously made a decision to put some thought and effort into your forthcoming wedding.
Often the wedding is overshadowed by other details - how many guests and who to invite, wedding dress, flowers, rings, catering, wedding car, music, hair, make up etc...
Each of these is important in its own right but when it comes down to it, the jewel in the crown is the actual ceremony. One of the most powerful and unforgettable moments of your wedding day will be when you stand facing one another to share your vows of love and commitment.
As a Professional Marriage Celebrant I've had the pleasure of sharing in hundreds joyous and beautiful wedding ceremonies. Though each wedding is different in so many ways, there are some ways in which they are all the same. As well as being an expression of shared love, it's the creation of something new, a partnership in the journey of life.
To participate in such a creation is an enriching and rewarding experience. By sharing some of my experiences, thoughts and ideas with you, hopefully I can be a part of your 'creation of something new'.
On your wedding day you will want a ceremony that will be a treasured memory for many years to come - a ceremony that inspires and deeply touches you both and everyone present. You can have a ceremony that honours your love, friendship and commitment to each other - a ceremony that is intimate, emotive, rich, fun and relaxed.
Whether you are having a small and intimate occasion or a gathering of the great clan, the simple prompts and ideas I have will make the creation of your celebration an easy and enjoyable journey. It will be lots of fun with plenty of laughter and a few tears of joy along the way!
