I am privileged to be registered as a civil marriage celebrant. It is not a role I take lightly – I am fortunate to work with people at one of the most special times of their lives.
My career has included various roles, all of them giving me the opportunity to develop skills required of a great celebrant. As a teacher and Principal, I planned, prepared and coordinated events, spoke to small and large groups of people and wrote the scripts for many events. However, I promise you are not getting a boring old Principal … I was only in my early 30s when I took on that role! I am currently an Executive within the Australian Public Service. Working with people and understanding their needs has been a theme throughout my career, so I am confident we can work together to make your day just what you want.
I’ve been married to Michael for thirteen years. We chose to be married by a civil celebrant and were thrilled with the freedom it gave us. I loved planning our ceremony, I felt confident writing and planning our wedding, drawing from my experiences in schools … but wondered how many others would feel the same. I built our ceremony around the theme of journey, incorporating our past, present and future. I used symbols such as Michael’s first shoes and the ones I had worn at my most recent birthday. Our family had roles in the ceremony that they felt comfortable fulfilling. It was a great day – everything we imagined!
I promise that I will assist and guide you through every step of the process to create your unique and special ceremony!
