About me

Hi! Being a celebrant is one of the most rewarding things I have done in my life.

I was urged by a friend to become a celebrant because she thought I was well suited for the role. And I think she was right! I absolutely love meeting people and being a part of one of the most exciting moments in their lives.

So many of our guests said it was one of the most beautiful and loving ceremonies they have ever  witnessed, and we have you to thank for that.

  • I just wanted to acknowledge and thank you for making Clint and Kate’s wedding day at the Native Flora Gardens at Nelsons Bay such a special one for all of us. The work and research you put into designing the ceremony was amazing and truly reflected the nature of both of them and the bond they have with each other. You have an incredible talent for choosing the absolute right words for the occasion and your professionalism is impeccable. As the parents of the groom we thank you from the deepest part of our hearts for being so in the moment with us.

Your care and personal attention to our wedding did not go unnoticed and for that, we are extremely grateful."
