Weddings

WeddingYour wedding is one of the most important days of your life. I am extremely passionate about being a Marriage Celebrant, and would be proud and honoured to be given the opportunity to officiate at your wedding ceremony. As an Authorised Marriage Celebrant I am committed to delivering a personalized ceremony, just as you would like it, at whatever location you choose.
Your wedding can be as formal or as simple as you wish. It may take place at the beach, at a waterfall, in a garden, on top of a mountain or in a more formal venue of your choosing.


I will help create the perfect ceremony for you. I offer a personal, professional service and in close consultation with you will assist and arrange a ceremony to suit your needs. Your unique ceremony will be remembered with pride and satisfaction.
For weddings requiring a PA system, my wireless portable address system is modern technology at its best. Its rechargeable battery system allows it to be used anywhere regardless of availability of main power. The CD Player allows selected tracks to be played with ease.

I have samples of weddings, poems, vows etc which are available to you, allowing you to help create your own personalised ceremony.

I would love the opportunity to meet you and discuss ways in which I can help create the wedding that is right for you.

For furtherĀ  information about how I can help you please feel free to call me on 03 63 346010 or 0438 346 010
