"There is no more lovely, friendly and charming relationship, communion or
company than a good marriage" - Martin Luther

Becoming a Celebrant is something I have aspired to for some years now and received my registration with the Attorney General's Department as a Marriage Celebrant conducting Civil Ceremonies in 2016 after completing the Certificate IV in Celebrancy at the Gordon Institute in Victoria.

Whether you're planning a larger formal type wedding or a smaller more intimate ceremony, an elopement, or a 'registry office' style ceremony, I can assist with the planning/creation of your very own wedding ceremony, including meeting the legal requirements and the writing of your marriage vows.

I have lived and worked in the North West area for many years, including fourteen years providing support and assistance to children, young people and their families in dealing with/overcoming issues associated with family separation, abuse and neglect, and loss and grief. In a 'past life' I worked for many years in the mining industry, including fourteen years as an Underground Miner, both here in Tasmania and New South Wales. I have spent the past ten years working for the TasTAFE College as a Teacher, Workplace Trainer/Assessor. I have strong connections to the North West and West Coast regions of Tasmania and I am committed to the well-being of families everywhere.

My Values

I am committed and genuine with regard to matters relating to the heart and the well being of others, including matters relating to issues of social justice.

I believe it is the goal of all families to be happy and succeed in life and I see marriage as one way for couples to achieve this goal by building strong bonds within a loving marriage. I am committed to the institution of marriage and take great joy in assisting couples in realising their dreams of being joined in marriage.

Whether you are from Tasmania, interstate or overseas, I will provide you with a professional and personalised service and will assist you in every step of the way with the preparation of your marriage ceremony, ensuring a worry free and inclusive process.

I wish you the very best for your up-coming marriage and your future together. I look forward to assisting in making your wedding day a most happy and memorable occasion.
