Your wedding day will be an exciting, emotional and memorable occasion. I am committed to providing a fully professional ceremony to make your wedding day a special day that will begin your lives together as husband and wife.
I was the first female celebrant in the Northern Rivers Area, Appointed by the Attorney-General in 1985 and have performed over 1500 weddings, renewal of vows and baby-naming for local, interstate and overseas couples. I bring experience, style, imagination and guidance. Whether your idea of a marriage ceremony is traditional, simple, casual, elegant or formal (even an elopement!) I can help you create it.
I can suggest some of the best locations in the north coast area, whether it be a beach, private establishment, lookout, park, riverside, lighthouse or a specially designed reception venue. I have performed weddings in Ballina, Byron Bay, Lennox Head, Alstonville, Lismore, Kyogle, Evans Head, Bangalow, Casino, Coraki and all areas in between.
I have several example ceremonies for you to choose from and encourage you to create a ceremony that reflects your own values, dreams, and intentions for your future married life together.
There are a few legal requirements that must be incorporated in your ceremony. You may wish to have family and/or friends participate in your ceremony by way of sharing readings, singing, ring warming and sand ceremonies, as this will make your day more personal. Music can play an important role too.
The preliminary arrangements can be made by phone, Email or post, and I also encourage you to make personal contact so we can establish a rapport prior to the wedding.
So if you want an experienced celebrant conducting an extravaganza or an intimate and personal ceremony, be it a wedding, naming of your special child or maybe you would like to re-commit to your present spouse, contact me to make it happen.
