About me

I moved to the South Burnett in 2000 and my family and I have lived here since.  During this time, I have met many people from all walks of life in both social and professional capacities. 
I am married with two children whom I love dearly. My husband and I enjoy a wonderful marriage and I believe this was the underpinning of my desire to become a Marriage Celebrant.  Personally, I believe wholeheartedly in marriage and the values that it encompasses.  Love, respect, honesty and trust are amongst the most valuable traits that can be shared by two people.   
I love being a registered marriage celebrant and I welcome the opportunity to work with you and together we will make your wedding day a truly memorable occasion. 

As your celebrant, I  provide a portable PA system and cordless microphone for your ceremony in which I can Bluetooth the music.



Wedding & Commitment

It may seem like a daunting process, but it is actually very simple. I will be there to guide you through every step of the way.


Whatever elements you want to include in your Ceremony, we can build a Ceremony to suit your needs. You can choose to write your own vows, include several readings, include family traditions, ask friends or family to be involved, and choose whether or not to be given away.

Whether a traditional marriage ceremony or a commitment between two people, I can cater for your needs.

Vow Renewals

These ceremonies are to reaffirm your vows - you may have been married overseas or away from your home town and decide to have a ceremony when you come home for your friends who were unable to attend, or you may like to have this celebration on your wedding anniversary whether it be one year or sixty years. This can also be a very special time for you to celebrate an anniversary, reflect and rejoice the history and recommit to the future with vows renewed. 

Baby Naming

Formally welcome a child or children into the family and community of friends. The role of parent, mentor and other family members is celebrated with warmth in a loving and individually designed ceremony. These ceremonies can be performed for children of any age. It is lovely if the child is under 12 months but this does not exclude any other child. These ceremonies are also very personal and I work in with the parents to see what you would like.

A $100 non-refundable fee is payable within 15 days of booking to secure your date and time with me.  The balance of your fee is due within 30 days of your event.  Cancellation of your event within 30 days - the full fee is still payable.  Cancellation more than 30 days before your event and your fee will be refunded, less the non-refundable booking fee.

“I am nothing special, of this I am sure. I am a common man with common thoughts and I’ve led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I’ve loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me, this has always been enough.”

- Nicholas Sparks
