Being a Marriage Celebrant allows me the honour of being part of one of the most important days of a couple’s life. A very different career choice after 16 years working in the Banking Industry and a choice that I have never looked back on.
From a young age I trained as a singer, pianist and became a song writer who found much joy in telling stories through music and lyrics. After completing a business degree in Music Industry I landed myself the perfect job for my skill set…..working at a bank. What the? I hear you say….well I also got married around that time and much to my disappointment the mortgage could not be paid with tunes! Writing songs became my outlet – my happy place. A great 16 year career in banking, happily married and 3 beautiful kids later, it was time for change.
Becoming a Civil Celebrant allowed me to capitalise on my passion for storytelling to deliver quality personalised ceremonies . Weddings can be full of tangibles, dresses, suits, flowers, rings…..but an amazing ceremony is more than that, it’s what you can’t see or touch that makes all the difference – the emotion, the connection….you know, the vibe! That’s where I come in.
I am all about creating the ceremony you desire, be it as brief as you want or as long as you wish – it should reflect you as a couple and by the end of it your guests should feel like they have been along for the whole ride. I pride myself on professionalism and reliability and have a great respect for the trust put in me to give my couples what they envision in a ceremony.
Whilst officiating Weddings bring me much joy, I am equally honoured to write and conduct Naming ceremonies, Renewal of Vows and Anniversary ceremonies.
