Ahh the glamorous life of a celebrant! Here I am after a wedding at Hyams Beach and photographer Dean Dampney of Cloudface photography (who also took the photo of the blossom shower above) has captured me juggling wedding register, signing table, tablecloth, ceremony and my shoes!

South Coast celebrant


More about me: I am a professional marriage celebrant and recently performed my 300th wedding - a very exciting milestone! ! The Shoalhaven and South Coast of NSW offers so many great locations for a destination wedding or anyone wanting  to combine ceremony and honeymoon I cover a lot of the waterfront, from Kiama to Mollymook, all the bits in between and quite often a bit beyond! My main focus as a celebrant is helping you make your wedding a meaningful and memorable occasion and working with you to create the perfect ceremony for you. Ritual and ceremony aren't often a part of everyday life and  finding the right words for such a major commitment can be a little daunting. The feedback I get most from couples is that I make them feel relaxed - not a bad thing considering even the smallest wedding seems to entail a bit of stress. I  bring a varied background to my work as a celebrant. I have worked with the Australia Council for the Arts, in Public Relations and Events (including weddings) at the Sydney Royal Botanic Gardens and as co-ordinator of Writers in the Park at the legendary Harold Park HotelI have a Communications degree and more than 25 years experience as a professional writer. I have had poetry and short stories published in major literary journals, written and performed in plays and contributed articles to magazines as diverse as Harper's Bazaar and On the Street. I've written speeches for CEO's and politicians, advertising copy, monthly columns for Dolly and Girlfriend and music and theatre reviews for Drum Media - so if you think you may be at a loss when it comes to putting your feelings into words for your wedding ceremony I'll be there to assist.

 Union by Robert Fulghum:You have known each other from the first glance of acquaintance to this point of commitment. At some point, you decided to marry. From that moment of yes to this moment of yes, indeed, you have been making promises and agreements in an informal way. All those conversations that were held riding in a car or over a meal or during long walks - all those sentences that began with "When we're married" and continued with "I will" and "you will" and "we will" - those late night talks that included "someday" and "somehow" and "maybe" - and all those promises that are unspoken matters of the heart. All these common things, and more, are the real process of a wedding. The symbolic vows that you are about to make are a way of saying to one another, "You know all those things we've promised and hoped and dreamed - well, I meant it all, every word. Look at one another and remember this moment in time. Before this moment you have been many things to one another  - acquaintance, friend, companion, lover, dancing partner, and even teacher, for you have learned much from one another in these last few years. Now you shall say a few words that take you across a threshold of life, and things will never quite be the same between you. For after these vows, you shall say to the world, this is my husband, this is my wife.
