Civil Celebrant

Celebrant background: I became a civil marriage celebrant in 2018 after a long career in customer service, mediation and dispute resolution. I also hold a Certificate IV in Customer Contact and a Justice of the Peace.

I wished to have a different interaction with members of my community, so time for a career change - I have never looked back and truly love being a celebrant!
Why I'm a celebrant: It is an honour to meet couples, listen to their unique story, their hopes and dreams. I strive to create a memorable and personal ceremony, incorporating their needs and wishes. I thoroughly enjoy working with couples and families during such an important time – and calming their nerves sometimes too. So many memorable occasions and wonderful people I have had the pleasure to meet.
Treasured memories: I have been married for over thirty five years and mother to three beautiful adult children. Home is the beautiful south coast of NSW; however I am happy to drive and travel to meet the needs of my couples – what a great country to explore.
Tips : Select your date and contact your Celebrant. Allow plenty of time to get your identification documentation together in order to have your NOIM completed. Don't leave it until last and then find you have issues with missing documentation and have to apply for another copy.

Too many couples are so anxious about everything in planning their day that they miss on enjoying and savouring this special time. Relax, breathe and have fun.
and I'd like to say: There are many Celebrants to chose from - some more outgoing, some more reserved, some charge more, others are cheaper. You will have so many choices to make surrounding your day - colours, themes, tastes, sounds. Remember it is your day, do it your way!
