My name is Karen Leuders,

I am a registered Marriage Celebrant , authorised to officiate civil marriage ceremonies and  i   would  feel privileged to be part of your special day ...telling your story your way

I love the variety and uniqueness  of the people i meet..I love hearing  stories of how they met and their  journey into a new life together in Marriage and Commitment

I am  a registered member of  the Australian Federation of Civil Celebrants (AFCC ) and can solemnise Civil Marriage Ceremonies in Australia according to law , now with the wonderful inclusion of same -sex  legal marriages .Love Is Love !

I can help you through all that necessary legal paperwork and get to know you both along the way so we can create and write your own unique story to share with your family and loved ones.

Then  we all can relax and have a great rehearsal (recommended)before we  enjoy your vows of commitment to each other in front of family and friends on your special day.

I can assist if you need some guidance on writing Personal Vows,Rituals,Poems or with any Song suggestions for your ceremony..nothing will be too much trouble !

My working life  involves many years in Retail Pharmacy where i've had the pleasure of conversing  with people of all ages , many from diverse backgrounds..people are my career!

I am a genuine, caring person with a sunny personality  with many life  experiences ,and i will do my utmost to  make your day so special you will never forget it .

I am also available  ( and willing  to travel upon request) to  officiate in The Riverland, Adelaide and surrounding districts.

As a Funeral Celebrant when a loved one passes,the memories they leave behind  mean something different to each and everyone who knew them. I respectfully re tell those stories in my ceremonies, gathering moments in time about peoples lives  and what they meant to family and friends.

I am also able to  coordinate  and officiate  at Funeral Services-Interment of Ashes -Renewal of Vows-Naming Ceremonies.

I have also completed a Certificate in Funeral Celebrancy.

Hi Karen, Stuart and i would like to thank you for being our Celebrant on 19.10.2019. Nothing seemed to be a hassle for you and you responded very quickly to any of our questions. You are very easy to get along with and easy to talk to and you absolutely nailed the ceremony you promised us ! Everything was great and we had a laugh even though our sugar rushed son was the standout in the first few minutes haha Rachel
