ABOUT ME

My journey to become a marriage celebrant began when I got married in 2012. We wanted someone who was relaxed, fun, contemporary, well spoken and presented - and who would create a ceremony that was truly ours. As I hunted for the perfect person I started thinking  that this could be another hat I could wear someday - I love meeting new people, helping to organise all matter of things and have a passion for writing. 

The idea simmered away for a couple of years until I was on maternity leave in 2014 and, amongst the chaos of having a newborn, I decided to head 'back to school' and became an accredited celebrant!

While being a celebrant is my 'passion project', I think that my other day jobs - being a freelance Public Relations & Event Manager, as well as a mother to a two young kids - put me in good stead to be the best person to help write and officiate your special occasion.

I am approachable, down-to-earth, highly organised, attentive, and professional. Couple that with more than 17 years of working in and with the media, as well as public speaking experience, and I always strive to deliver a bespoke ceremony that lives up to your vision and expectations. 

I am based in Adelaide, South Australia, but am more than happy to travel far and wide for your ceremony.

Please feel free to contact me to see if I'm available for your ceremony. I look forward to hearing from you!
