I became a registered Celebrant in 2015, after many years of consideration. Now I have no idea why I took so long to do it!

Bringing people together on some of the most important and memorable days of their lives is something that I am so privileged to be able to take part in. I love using my aptitude for words and feelings to write personalised and exciting scripts for ceremonies. My background as a Registered Nurse has given me a love of working with people, a fondness for paperwork (strange, I know, but extremely important in both of these vocations) and a real desire and passion for doing things that make people happy.

I live with my family in Brisbane’s Bayside and have done for the last 28 years.
I do love coffee and good food… a lot. I also have an inherent love for musical theatre.

I am serious about my work but also love to have a good laugh and a lot of fun. I’m not scared of trying something different, so if you have a bit of an “out-there” idea for your ceremony, I am going to be excited to hear it!

I truly believe in the power of love (it’s not just a great song!) and feel very fortunate to be able to create truly individual ceremonies, whether it’s a celebration of love between a couple, to welcome a new baby or for loved ones who have passed.

As part of my Celebrancy services, I offer services for:
Naming Ceremonies
Commitment Ceremonies
Vow Renewals
Animal/Companion Goodbye Ceremonies
