I am a Brisbane based marriage celebrant, delivering ceremonies in SEQ and beyond. My approach to celebrancy is to work closely with my couples to develop a ceremony which feels fun, laid-back, meaningful, and most importantly, genuine.
I have been a celebrant since 2011, first in London, UK, before moving to Brisbane in 2015. In both countries, I found I was attracting couples who believe their ceremony shouldn’t be something that has to be endured, to get to the fun bit. It should be a highlight of the day.
As an ex-music journalist, l also love writing. This skill helps me capture a couple’s story in the most interesting and compelling of ways. I have a hint of London in my accent – a hangover from my 26 years of living there – and I use my voice to engage guests whilst telling the story, injecting humour and personality to ensure that it is entertaining, relatable and memorable.
On a personal note, I love bicycle riding, attempting not to kill things in my garden, podcasts (history and true crime in particular), and dogs. In fact, dogs are probably my greatest love. Your dog. My dog. That dog. This dog. Ugly dog. Pretty dog. Big dog. Small dog. I really don’t care. I’m also partial to cats, rabbits, elephants, iguanas… pretty much all animals really apart from cane toads.
If you’re looking for a celebrant who makes you feel like a friend has married you, then I am your person.
