I am a civil marriage celebrant registered with the Australian Attorney General’s department. My presentation style is warm and welcoming, professional and friendly. Having been an ABC broadcaster for seven years I understand the need to be perfectly prepared, but to also be prepared to go with the ‘magic of the moment’. Whilst I’m based in the Blue Mountains in NSW, I am happy to travel whenever practicable.
As a Blue Mountains based celebrant I’m inspired by this majestic country, traditional lands of the Darug and Gudungurra peoples, to celebrate rites of passage here.
I returned to live Blue Mountains in 2011, and my memories of stunning vistas, forests and waterfalls could not do them justice. It is distinctively Blue Mountains to be able to wander from this natural beauty into the romantic, elegant and glamorous Art Deco palaces and nooks throughout the Mountains.This place is so perfect for ceremony and romance that I’ve decided on a career change!
Keep an eye on my Blue Mountains page – I hope it will help you find the people and places that will make your ceremony perfect for you and your loved ones.
My professional career crosses many spheres—including seven years as an entertaining ABC broadcaster in Tasmania and for the ABC’s national programming network. I’ve also worked in research, heritage tourism, social work and project management.
I like getting to the heart of things. Conversations touching on social justice, community development, cultural heritage and the arts reveal my passionate side.
I value human and cultural diversity, and support the growing campaign for changes to the Marriage Act in Australia. Bring on that day when Australian law recognises the loving commitment of all consenting adults who want to marry, irrespective of gender and identity!
My presentation style is warm and welcoming, professional and friendly. Having worked as an ABC broadcaster for 7 years I understand the need to be perfectly prepared, but to also be prepared to go with the ‘magic of the moment’.
The ceremony is your day, and the celebrant has the privilege to officiate. I will provide you with a portfolio of outfits to ensure that the celebrant doesn’t detract from your wedding party’s style on the day, and I will accommodate your needs.
Approach to Ceremony
To create a memorable and meaningful ceremony, from which to draw inspiration and strength for the years ahead, we can look at a range of symbolic ceremonial ideas that have been used around the world to celebrate love and unions. You can draw inspiration from heritage, from your beliefs, philosophy and values, from your passions, from the arts and sciences that inspire you.
We will weave a ceremony that is uniquely your own. I will take the time you need to make it perfect for you.
