Wedding & Civil Union Celebrant
YES! You're Getting Married... Congratulations!
So much to do and so much to think about!
As your celebrant, it is my absolute pleasure to guide you through this process.
To secure your wedding date and start our planning, a non-refundable $200.00 deposit is required. Then we can get cracking!
I will send out tips on writing your vows, ideas for poems or readings, a few nosey questions to get to know you better and how to go about applying for your marriage license.
We will then arrange another meeting during which we organise, plan and prepare what you imagine your dream day to be.
I will go back to my desk create, weave and draft your ceremony that we have designed together. During this time and the build up to your day, you have unlimited phone calls and e-mails with me, for any questions, tweaking or changes.
The week before your big day we will have a rehearsal and catch up on any fine-tuning and then of course, there is...... YOUR WEDDING DAY ceremony.

Yes let's do it!
As the naturally adventurous type I am happy to fly, climb to the top of the hill, travel the earth or sail the seas. Of course we could just go to the beach or even your own backyard. Celebrant fees for this type of ceremony will differ from the 'norm'
Let's discuss that in person.
"Our day was absolutely perfect, and you were a huge part of that! Thank you again, I hope you get to make lots of couples as happy as you’ve made us! “ -Jen Angus
Celebrate & Officiate!
A Naming Ceremony, is a very special and beautiful way to welcome a new arrival into your family.
There are many different ways to express these emotions. We can discuss poems or readings or the use of symbolic gestures. Tree planting, the release of lanterns, balloons, butterflies, or perhaps even a time capsule, just to name a few...there is so much more.
Your new family member will receive a 'Certificate of Name Giving' as their keepsake.
Allow me to assist you in creating a memorable ceremony to cherish.
Holding a funeral ceremony is an important part of our grieving process - we come together family, friends and community, as one.
As your celebrant I guide you through this process, assisting you in seeking suitable ceremony content for your loved one lost.
It would be an absolute priviledge to be able to assist you in celebrating and honoring your loved ones life.
"Hi Louise, we met on a sad occasion but you made it so much easier for us. You took us through some funny memories of our lovely brother also some very touching times thank you. I would not hesitate to avail myself of your services or hesitate to refer you to anyone that needs a caring Celebrant, thank-you once again" - Wendy McNicoll
I am a firm believer that our pets are 'part of the family', they leave a great void in our hearts and our homes when they are gone.
The food bowl sits empty, there is no one to greet you on your return home, the left-over biscuits remain in the cupboard....you can not bear the thought of throwing them out.
Your home is missing a familiar face.
Then of course, there is the grieving process. Yes 'time heals all wounds', to an extent........
Ceremonies are a beneficial way to aide you and your family throughout this transitional period.
I am happy to chat, and see where I may be able to assist you.
