A sense of me

As a Melbourne and Mornington Peninsula based celebrant, my aim is to create the perfect ceremony for you, whatever the occasion, whatever your personality, whatever your taste and style.


I’ll just put it out there – a great ceremony sets the tone for the celebrations that follow!


Honestly – it’s true!! We’ve all been to those weddings where the prospect of the bar opening is the thing that sustains you through the ceremony! It is SO boring listening to the celebrant banging on about generic and schmaltzy ‘two hearts beating as one’ stuff. That’s not what you want. Your ceremony should absolutely reflect you. And if this means your guests are moved to cheer, whoop and holler; cry through your vows; laugh uproariously at your more quirky characteristics; perhaps even stand up and talk about you – then all the better. Whatever your thing, your guests deserve to be entertained and enthralled during your ceremony.

So, what can I bring to your ceremony, and why should you choose me as your celebrant?


Well, I do know how to create a ceremony that will perfectly reflect you, your values, beliefs and quirks. I’m good at story telling, and I will share your story in a way that truly captivates your guests, instilling a sense of love, magic and humour, whilst never losing sight of the serious commitment you are making.My celebrant style is calm, natural and warm, and I am well presented and extremely professional. My favourite ceremonies are relaxed, heartfelt, funny and perhaps a tad quirky if that fits your style. I take considerable time to get to know and understand you, as this really is what separates a truly memorable ceremony from a ho-hum one. One of my couples summed it up nicely: Thank you for taking so much time to get all the details right, to revise and carefully draft the ceremony for us, and to really get to know us before the wedding.  On the day it truly felt as if a dear friend was performing the ceremony for us.If you think I could be the one for you, we should chat about your requirements (obligation free). I’m based in Northcote, and regularly go to Rye on the Mornington Peninsula, so I can meet up with you at my place, at yours (if relatively close by), or somewhere in between. Don’t hesitate to contact me for an initial phone chat to see if you like the cut of my jib!
