I am a modern Civil Marriage Celebrant based in Brisbane...
I have a genuine love for what I do and extensive experience with all types of weddings including small intimate settings, sunny beach ceremonies, large formal occasions and surprise weddings.
I personalise each ceremony to suit your own style and make your marriage a memorable moment you will never forget along with making it an enjoyable and stress free experience.
My Celebrant story started in 2010...
My friends have always called me a bit of a match maker, as I have successfully matched a lot of them up. So when my friends started getting engaged I found myself dabbling in the wonderful world of weddings with them. That’s when the idea of being able to be a part of some of life’s greatest moments happened.
So it started out for friends, then friends of friends and all of a sudden I have married hundreds of couples.

A few regular questions...
How many Weddings have I done?
Hundreds!!! It started out as a friends thing for the first year in 2010, then seemed to grow to “strangers”, who aren’t strangers by the time it comes around to the big day.
What is my ceremony Style and how long does the ceremony go for?
Fun, light hearted and personal, I like to think that I am personal to all my couples. Ceremonies range in length, however normally between 20 minutes to 30 minutes.
What will I wear to your wedding?
It is totally up to you! I do wear a lot of black as it is neutral and wont clash with any colours, however I always check with each couple.
What about Equality?
Love is love and Australia needs to catch up with the times so that every couple can equaly and legally say I do!
How am I eco friendly?
I use an iPad for each ceremony to reduce paper wastage (and because I am modern too)! Further to that; I am a HUGE animal lover, so if having your fur babies (pets) at your wedding is your thing, I am always up for that and can recommend a fantastic service to help make this happen.
Where do I like to meet my couples?
I am pretty flexible; I love to meet with couples at a convenient café where we can chat over a hot chocolate and complete the paperwork. You can see me at a Max Brenner regularly.
Do I do more than one wedding a day?
Sometimes…however only if there is a substantial time difference between each ceremony. Every wedding is someone’s BIG DAY and it is always such a privilege to be a part of it, so I always take special care with time management.
What about religion?
As I am a civil celebrant and although not religious myself, I marry so many couples with different backgrounds and cultures.
