Tracey Kelly - Celebrant Bayside

Your Day, Your Way
Celebrant background: I am based in St. Kilda, Melbourne, and cover the Bayside areas from Port Melbourne through to Portsea; I have had experience in diverse, creative and standard ceremonies, each unique and personal. Your Day, Your Way
I also do ceremonies/services in the Stonnington area and can officiate at pre destination and destination overseas marriages when requested.

I have had the privilege of officiating over a broad selection of services over the years.

My specialities are Weddings, Renewal of Vows, Funerals, Memorial services, Pre Funeral Gatherings and much more ... Please visit my website and instagram for more information and photos.

I have come from a background in a variety of areas including emergency services (Police), counselling, education, health, travel, film, TV & theatre and not for profit organisations. I am a a qualified public speaker with a Bachelor of Communications.
Why I'm a celebrant: I became a qualified Civil Celebrant to guide and assist those who require someone who is genuinely interested in helping them create a unique service/ceremony they can be proud of and customised to their personal needs and wishes.

Many of the best people I know, have little or no spiritual beliefs or follow any particular faith. In the past, this precluded them from rituals and services which they deserved.

I did have foundations in a Christian background, so I am happy to utilise this when required, but not to the exclusion of others regardless of their beliefs.

As a qualified Civil Celebrant I can choose to use spiritual or non spiritual prose to tailor a unique service for anyone. All services are respectful and inclusive and truly reflect the couple or family's ideas & desires.
Treasured memories: There are too many treasured memories to list here but undoubtedly some will come out when we meet.
Tips : - Do your research.

- Not every Celebrant is right for you. If you are unsure, it is okay to change to another Celebrant, even after the initial paper work has been completed.

- Marriage - Allow time, at least 31 days but 18 months notice is also acceptable for a Notice of Intention to Marry ( NOIM ).

- Funerals/Memorial Services. (You can choose your own Celebrant, you do not have to accept the Celebrant referred to you by the Funeral Home) but this is your personal choice and therefore up to you. Your chosen Celebrant will work with your Funeral Home regardless, and the fees are the same usually.
and I'd like to say: My aim is to keep things simple while guiding you through the necessary regulatory requirements when required, in a safe and caring way; I offer guidance and knowledge while reflecting your unique needs and wishes at all times. Your Day, Your Way.
