From my writing Desk
2011- 2012. What an amazing two years! Where did it go?
Saffire at Freycinet
Tasmania continues to excel; Quamby Estate, with its luxurious rooms and magnificent gardens, Red Feather Inn, heritage listed Georgian buildings and intimate garden, Josef Chromy Vineyard over-looking the picturesque vineyard and lake, Mona Museum of Old and New Art at Moorilla winery in Hobart and ‘The Jewel of Tasmania’ Saffire at Freycinet! Is it any wonder why so many choose to exchange their vows in our beautiful island state?
April – November 2010. It appears our secret is out!
Tasmania, our hidden treasure, is the place to be wed!
With so many delightful Tasmanian couples and with brides and grooms flying in from Germany, England, Wales, Netherlands, India, China , Indonesia, Philippines, America and Canada and from every state in Australia, this past 12 months has kept this Celebrant extremely busy.
With each couple comes a wonderful life story!

With so many magnificent places to be wed perhaps your most difficult decision to make will be which setting you will choose to invite your family and friends to celebrate your special day.
Tassie may never be the same!

2009 – 2010 Wedding season is now in full swing in our beautiful Island state, Tasmania!
With spring comes the kaleidoscope of colours, emerald green fields, aqua oceans, brilliant white beaches and a flourish of magnificent blooms. With bookings for weddings, at the majestic Mt Wellington - Hobart, to the picturesque Vineyards of the Tamar Valley, the magnificent Colonial Estates of Strathmore, Quamby and Entally, the pristine beaches of Freycinet, Binalong Bay and Bridport, to the rugged bush land of Cradle Mountain, this year is certainly going to be an exciting one.
As a ‘warm up’ to the season in August I travelled to the freezing Rockies in Canada to officiate at the wedding celebration of a Tasmanian friend Stephen, who married the love of his life Catherine. Forty friends and family from around the globe made the trek to the top of West Wind Pass, near Banff, for an unforgettable celebration of Catty and Steve’s love. Everyone agreeing, the perfect place, truly expressing Catty and Steve for who they are. Another memorable day!
‘From the mountain to the Beach’ – A very windy day for sure! The 30-40 knot winds at Friendly Beaches on the East Coast of Tasmania, where Hannah and Jon celebrated their marriage! not that it daunted the bride and groom, but rather enhanced their vibrant personalities. Guests and bridal party all enjoying the magnificence of Freycinet National Park.
