Ok, so that’s the formal introduction over. What do you really want to know about me? 
 
If you haven’t worked it out already and the name hasn’t given it away, I’m right into music. In fact, I have a music degree. I actually studied classical piano and voice. These days I’ve swapped Bach and Beethoven for Lady Gaga and Adele. I am the Singing Celebrant which means that I can sing at your ceremony if that’s what you want. You can also choose to bring your own music, not a problem, or you can just have me do the music and choose another celebrant. So many choices right?


Also, in case you're confused - I don’t sing the ceremony!  I can sing before your ceremony starts, while guests are waiting. As the bridal party enter and at the end of your ceremony while guests are leaving. I also offer packages for music at your reception. Please click on packages for more information.
 
I absolutely love being a marriage celebrant. I love working with couples to create the ceremony that they want. It is after all your special day. I have lots of different options including ceremony “rituals” such as sand ceremonies, ring ceremonies, candles ceremonies and hand fasting ceremonies, or you can keep it really "short and sweet" and get straight to the party. Rest assured your ceremony will be legal with all documentation lodged to Births, Deaths and Marriages.
 
Co-ordinating events is something that I am very familiar with.  From 2010-2015, I was an Organiser for a social group called Cheeky Drinks which was part of Meetup movement, an initiative that came out of 9/11 to bring communities together. This group had over 4,000 members, and I was responsible for coordinating events at various venues in and around Brisbane. Although this group was not a singles group, I don’t mind saying that there were some people who found that special someone at my events, some even went on to get married.


I have married people on the beach, in historical churches and buildings and 5 Star resorts. Micro weddings with 5 people or bigger outside weddings. Whatever your wedding looks like in your mind, we can make it a reality. If you have no idea click on Wedding Trends for 2022 for some inspiration. Unfortunately, Covid is still a reality and wedding plans need to incorporate Covid safe practices.


If you have read this far and like what you have seen then I would love to chat to you about your special day. Our initial meeting would be very informal over a coffee or a Sauv blanc, either at the wedding venue or another convenient location. Click on contact to find all my details.
