My primary motivator in becoming a Civil Celebrant was in fact following the death of my Father 12 years ago. I decided at that time that I wanted to work with families in preparing deeply meaningful End-of-Life ceremonies. Today, I love arranging with couples and families all types of ceremonies.
I’m a modern and fully-trained professional civil celebrant. I’m passionate about providing authentic and heartfelt ceremonies which acknowledge and celebrate significant life changes and rites of passage in our lives.
I find it incredibly personally rewarding assisting couples and families plan and celebrate significant milestones in their lives. It is my endeavor to tell the story of You. Whether it be your wedding, your baby’s naming or funeral for your loved one, together I can help you create your important occasion with the right words, rituals and sense of occasion for a beautiful, personal and heartfelt ceremony.
I hold the most up-to-date celebrancy qualification (Certificate IV in Celebrancy). I’m registered with the Commonwealth Attorney General’s Department to solemnize marriages in Australia. I also have many years experience in public speaking, business and administration. I’m continually updating my knowledge and skills through professional development seminars, attending networking functions with celebrant colleagues and I’m also a member of the AFCC (Australian Federation of Civil Celebrants), CCNA (Celebrants & Celebrations Network Australia) and Committee Chair of the Civil Celebrations Network Inc. (CCN).
I live in Melbourne’s outer-east, but am available to conduct ceremonies throughout Melbourne/Victoria, The Dandenong Ranges and Yarra Valley Region.
