Celebrant with Heart & Soul

My Celebrant commitment to you

Ceremonies with heart and soul to uplift the spirit & celebrate life’s meaningful turning points. You deserve a breathtaking day where the celebrant is warm, professional and inclusive of all invited guests and family and the ceremony reflects who and where you are in your life at this special time!

My vision is to provide relaxed, professional and inspiring guidance in creating and performing a genuinely unforgettable ceremony with heart and soul that exceeds your wishes & intentions.

I attended a few cringeworthy weddings and funerals where I felt so sad for the couple or family when the priest or celebrant mispronounced their names, made inappropriate comments or clearly hadn’t taken the time to get to know their clients or write a ceremony that matched who they were. I decided I could honour a wedding couple or the family of the Deceased in the way they deserved in whatever ceremony they chose and that it would be something they could be proud of!

I really work hard to fulfil this intention by working with you so you are heard and your needs are met in whatever way works for you! It is your day and all about you, I simply want to facilitate that!

Creating ceremonies using your chosen rituals, music and poetry and combining these with words reflective of the heart and soul of an individual or couple ensures a unique, positive and unforgettable celebration for all concerned!

I bring a background in law, music, entertainment, yoga, volunteering and travel. Now celebrancy is my central passion! I am open-minded, non-judgemental and take special care to include everyone.
