Authorised Marriage Celebrant

Every couple in love has a different vision about what makes the perfect Wedding Ceremony. Every love story is unique and for that reason I dedicate myself to helping couples create the ceremony that is perfect for them.

To be able to do this, couples need to know what options are open to them and “what are the legal constraints?” I present a step by step guide and a vast array of choices for ceremony options, also containing 97 poems and readings from which to choose. The opportunity is there for couples to reflect their individual circumstances, personalities and special love.

When you choose me for your marriage celebrant you have the fun making the choices and I do the work to bring it together for you. I am always available to guide you and I work to ensure that you are completely happy with the planning process and the outcomes. My philosophy is – The wedding is all about the couple and not about the celebrant. I put every effort into ensuring that their wedding ceremony reflects what they want.

My services encompass every aspect of the wedding ceremony, including the use of a public address system with microphone and stand for the readers and CD player for your special music choices – managed by my husband John. Signing table and decorative chairs are supplied if not available at the venue.

I reside in the Shoalhaven Region of the NSW South Coast in the Mollymook/ Ulladulla area and mainly service from Gerringong to Moruya, but will travel anywhere on request. Many of my clients have chosen to be married at the rear of our property, which backs onto the beautiful and tranquil lake Conjola. I am able to assist couples with suggestions for ceremony venues on the South Coast, including great beachside and country locations as well as wineries.

I also specialise in Commitment Ceremonies, Renewal of Vows and Naming Ceremonies as well as Funeral Services.
