Profile

| "A down-to-earth Celebrant - no 'foot in the grave', nor blue rinse perm - who doesn't do bogan or circus... but is totally up for Real | Relaxed | Professional | Fun.

With Anna at your side, there are no awkward/stiff moments, people love your ceremony - rather than endure it, and you are guaranteed a beautiful, one-off experience to treasure for the rest of your days.  In short, her point of difference is... HER - she's just a natural!"

Awww shucks...  but the above testimonial pretty much nailed, me.

Basically, I've lived too much 'life' to care for rules, pomp and circumstance.  With that said, I am acutely aware that the kind of moments people involve me in (Weddings, Bereavements, Baby Namings, Renewal of Vows,  etc) are one-offs... never to occur again... so every inch of my being, my experience and my personality goes in to making that moment count... and having a damn, good time as we do it.

Like what you hear?  Well - BOOM - let's do this!

My Values

| REAL |  No matter the size of our bank account or the 'deets' on our business card... we all wake of a morning with bad hair and - most likely - morning breath(!).  So I say... let's just be real.

| RELAXED | This goes hand in hand with 'real'.  Life is trending to be more fluid and flexible... and I am more than happy - and competent - in running with 'it'.  You just turn up; the rest is on my shoulders... is my responsibility.

| PROFESSIONAL |
You have to know the rules to break the rules... and that includes business practice, social conduct and legal compliance.  Never, ever will I compromise my professional responsibilities or standing... I've worked too hard to gain them.

| FUN | Fun is... fun! And it is fun for a reason; we 'feel' when having fun... we relax... and creating 'fun' seems to comes naturally to me... no effort... no forcing... it just spills forth!
