Do you want a young, fun, engaging celebrant? You have found her. Let’s create an awesome ceremony together.

Do you want a young, fun, engaging CELEBRANT? You have found her. Let’s create an awesome ceremony together.

I am a Newcastle based celebrant who loves her job. I am passionate about creating personalised wedding ceremonies that reflect the personalities of those involved. No boring or out-dated ceremonies here!

Everyone has their own unique love story that deserves to be told- whether you met at the McDonalds on King st or backpacking in Asia, or even if you met in a more traditional location such as work, I will write a beautiful love story about it, infused with a bit of humour. Your guests will be hanging off my every word hearing what you love about each other (and maybe what annoys you too!)

I will create a relaxed vibe so that you and your guests actually enjoy the ceremony instead of having to endure it. They will laugh and they will cry. It’s important to bring the light and the shade.  By the end, the guests will feel uplifted and ready for the party.

I’ll explain all the legal requirements to you. I’ll make sure nothing is missed. You don’t need to worry about a thing. I’ve got that covered! Lucky for you, I am a trained professional with high attention to detail. My husband calls me ‘the beautiful organiser’.

You have so many options for personalising your ceremony. I will give you my super-duper ‘Couples Kit’ full of ceremony inspiration and provide you with lots of ideas for readings, rituals etc- ones that you will actually like!

Are you planning to write your own vows? I know it’s nerve wracking but I will help you to write the best vows ever. Insider tip: there is a bit of a formula that I’ll share with you. I’ll push you, in a good way. The results will be soooooo worth it.

I have a knack for languages. I speak Irish, Spanish, French and a bit of Italian and Portugese- one of the advantages of growing up in Europe. Is one of you from another country? Or did you meet overseas? If you want a sprinkling of another language in your ceremony, I can make that happen for you.

I am based in Newcastle but travel regularly to Lake Macquarie, the Hunter Valley, Port Stephens and the Central Coast. I am willing to travel to anywhere in NSW or beyond. I love a good road trip, especially when I get a chance to discover a new place in amazing Australia.

Finally, in case you haven’t figured it out by now, I should mention that I am Irish, but don’t worry, my accent is easy to understand. Just give me a call and hear for yourself!

  • In my spare time I love collecting... Podcasts......I am a podcast nut! I listen to them whenever I can: in the shower, while folding laundry, driving. I am always looking for recommendations and adding to my library, so hit me up with your faves.
  • What is your best advice to couples planning their wedding? Don't give in to societal or family pressure about what your wedding should be like. It is important your wedding reflects your personalities, so take advice from others with a pinch of salt. You know what will make you happy, so go for it. Of course you want to get all the details right, but remember not to get lost in it all. Plan as much as you can, and whatever you can't get done, let it go in your mind. The most important thing on the day is to feel the love and enjoy the day.
  • What is your advice for a healthy, long lasting relationship? Never go to bed on an argument.
    It's an oldie but a goodie.
  • What do you love most about what you do? My oxytocin goes through the roof after I have completed a ceremony. I love helping couples create meaningful and memorable ceremonies that reflect their personalities.
  • What gets you out of bed in the morning? I love Newcastle and everything that it offers. I've managed to carve out a wonderful life here.

    My perfect day consists of waking up early (I'm an early bird), eating a healthy breakfast, meditating in my garden, working on my celebrancy for most of the day, going for a walk along Merewether beach or to Blackbutt reserve, going for a meal out in Hamilton with my wonderful husband, followed by a Skype call to a girlfriend in Ireland. I am grateful for the simple things.
  • What do you love most about what you do? The relationships I form with the couples I work with. I think 'like attracts like'. I am so fortunate that the couples I work with are people I genuinely like and would like to hang out with anyway.

    I love hearing when they reach the next milestone in their lives, whether it's having a baby or buying a house. I am genuinely happy to hear about all the good things going on in their lives.
