Details

I have a professional background in Education, and believe learning is a life-long pursuit. I am a retired Secondary School Principal, and thoroughly love my role as a Civil Celebrant, as I meet many wonderful and interesting people.

As a Marriage Celebrant, I look forward to working with couples to ensure you have the most memorable and meaningful wedding day, designed to meet your particular needs, on possibly the most important day of your lives.

I believe a marriage celebrant must be sensitive, and have exceptional listening and communication skills, and a relaxed demeanor, so as to put everyone at ease in a courteous manner.

As an experienced civil celebrant , I have earned the reputation of being a dignified, clearly spoken presenter, and a very calming presence. I am practiced at improvising if necessary, and ensuring the ceremony flows smoothly.

As an accomplished, confident public speaker, I am equally comfortable addressing either small or large gatherings, from all walks of life, and am at ease with both informal and formal occasions. Having a gentle approach, and being inclusive to all, whilst remaining in control of the proceedings, is an invaluable attribute of a professional celebrant.

I believe attention to detail is vital in planning such a special event, and the outcome is that your individual requests and needs are included in the celebration. As an organised person, my documents are recorded in a concise and legible manner, to enable a transparent and clear understanding of the processes, and timely lodgment of required forms.

My background in the  Disability sector enables me to relate well to people with a range of Disabilities, including Intellectual and Physical. Therefore, I would love to work with clients from this sector to ensure you have a beautiful wedding or other ceremony to remember.

Please contact me for a no obligation, initial meeting to discuss your requirements, and see if we are suited to each other to plan together a beautiful, happy ceremony, making lifetime memories .

I WELCOME MARRIAGE EQUALITY AND LOOK FORWARD TO MARRYING MANY SAME SEX COUPLES. MY FIRST CEREMONY WAS 20TH JANUARY 2018 AND WAS A JOYOUS OCCASION.
