Get Married

Fun Fact!


I have been a registered and professional Marriage Celebrant for the past 13 years and officiated over 500 weddings. 

I did this full time for 10 years, over the past few years I limited my services to family and friends only, as I have travelled down other avenues of life, motherhood and business. 

I deeply believe in and love LOVE, and ceremony holds a deep space in my heart. 

I desire to work with couples who want their ceremony to deeply reflect who they are as a couple and individuals and the unique bond they have with each other.  

One of my favourite things to do is weave your loved ones, and special people into your ceremony in a way that honours them and brings you all even closer together. 

Out in nature is my absolute favourite place to be and hold space for you. So extra points and juice if that’s your vibe too! 


The Process


Who you choose as your celebrant has a massive impact on the energy of your big day. So it’s really important that we all connect.

Please take a few moments to complete the form via the button at the end of this paragraph and I’ll be in touch if the vibe feels right for us. 

From there we will meet in person and start the ceremony planning process. I craft a ceremony that uniquely reflects you both and I send it to you for approval, meaning you have the final say on what is said on your big day!


I take care of all the legalities and BOOM your married, it was easy and fun! Kiss, drink and go party!

The only requirements are that you are your partner are there. Your celebrant and two witnesses over 16.

I caught covid 7 days before my brothers wedding! I had a celebrant on stand by just incase, but I made it through as was able to handle the wedding.

My fee. is $999 all inclusive. 

A deposit of $199 locks in your wedding date and time, the balance isn’t due until the big day. 

On the day you will recieve your presentation certificate. This is the pretty wedding certificate. This is a legal document, however many organisations will not allow you to use this to change your name. 

Approximately 4 weeks after your wedding, you will receive a registered certificate, this looks like a birth certificate.

This is what you use to change your name. I highly suggest changing your name at Vicroads first and then using your new ID to change everything else.
