“Thanks for making our ceremony the BEST part of our day!”

“Our ceremony was exactly what we wanted, it was personal, filled with love and so unique”


this is me

I became a wedding celebrant because I am passionate about giving everyone an awesome wedding, setting you up for an amazing marriage. Without judgement or discrimination. I don't care if there's a 45 year age gap, or if one of you likes Vegemite and one likes Marmite (I’m looking at you, my dear husband).

What I care about is equality, inclusion, acceptance, safety and love.

But what even IS a celebrant, and what do I do?


Want to get married but don't want the stress or palava of a big, complicated wedding? Eloping doesn't have to be a scary choice, and is more acceptable now than ever before. An elopement wedding doesn't mean you have to skimp of the things you want in your wedding!



Because love is love


Don’t just believe me, have a look at what my couples say!

Thank you again for being so friendly, fun and warm - and understanding exactly what we were trying to get from the day. it was absolutely perfect and we had a lot of fun!
