About Me

My story

I have lived most of my life in the stunning Perth hills. It’s where I grew up and it’s where my husband and I chose to build our home and grow our family. It’s my happy place.  I’m excited to bring my many years of professional and personal experience working with people to the role of Civil Marriage Celebrant.


With over 35 years of marriage, motherhood and a professional career in family and community services, I have a profound appreciation of the importance of marking the special moments in our lives. Ceremony helps us to recognise the significance of the transition points in our human journey, to put our lives on pause, reflect and say ‘this is a meaningful moment’.

As a marriage celebrant my role is to work with you to co-create a beautiful, bespoke wedding ceremony. I will do this by meeting with you, hearing your story and understanding your hopes and dreams for the occasion. I will guide you through the legal requirements of marriage. I will work with you every step of the way to plan and craft a ceremony tailored to you and your partner. And then I will conduct the ceremony with professionalism, respect and eloquence, leaving you with memories to last a lifetime. 

My role

I aspire to...

Always be kind and just, find the best in people, build meaningful connections with and between people, be a good listener, be open and inclusive, always be learning. I acknowledge and pay my respects to the original custodians of the land on which I live, work and play, in the spirit of reconciliation.

Why choose me?

  • I care more about people than what’s pretty.

  • I always act with integrity and honesty.

  • What you see, is what you’ll get. I am authentically me all the time.

  • I want to help you stay in touch with the essence, the meaning and humanity of your wedding day.

  • I promise to guide you through every step of the process.

  • I will remain humble. I know that in working with you to create your ceremony, I have the privilege of connecting with you and your partner in a personal, intimate way. I do not take that trust for granted.

What Clients Say

"Who knew that when we were first introduced, you would be officiating a family wedding. As I got to know you, I knew with your warmth, humour and empathy, you would be the perfect person to marry Janet & Sean, and so it was. We heard lots of positive comments from the guests - how they loved the ceremony and how great you were, and Lynda and I felt likewise. There were flattering words said about your celebrant’s performance in a speech after you had left and a solid round of applause.!"
