Your Unique Celebrant - Glad to Meet You!
Who am I? Your Wedding is all about YOU - but if you want to know more, read on...
I am made for this career and am the best celebrant ever... well, in my humble opinion, anyway!?! I'm also an animal and nature lover, and another of my passions is looking after dogs, so I housesit on the side.
People tell me I am very warm, inspirational and comfortable to be with. My passion and energy ensure things get done. My enthusiasm and drive help me to overcome any obstacles. My love of people and freedom of choice, give me open-mindedness and compassion. With strong ethics and integrity, I am open and welcoming to all beliefs,cultures, nationalities, faiths and genders.
My customer service skills are awesome, and I get to combine my love of creative writing with my management skills, so that everything runs smoothly. It's like I get to write, produce and direct a fabulous screenplay, as we create your perfect dream ceremony together, and you get the starring roles!
Each client becomes family, and I strive to make the most important events in your lives be as memorable and enjoyable as possible. I hope you’ll let me plan your next unforgettable event. You will be so happy you did.
About My Creative Process
I Create Inspiring, Extraordinary and Truly Unforgettable Ceremonies
The most important thing for me is to really get to know you both - as individuals, as well as a couple. Once I've met you, I gather all the details you've given me, and then I tune in with my intuition to create your perfect ceremony, creating memories to last for generations to come.
I have a 99.99% success rate with getting the ceremony just right in the very first draft, leaving plenty of time for you to make any changes. My couples love the ease and flow of the whole process.
I also love creating your own Commemorative Certificates and Booklet of your whole ceremony, personalised to your theme.
I can't wait to meet you and start creating together.
More About Me
Still interested? Here's a snapshot of my life
My Wedding 2003
A big kick ass marquee at my parents acreage property near Airlie Beach, in the Whitsundays, with a live band and roast on the spit..so much fun!!
I had such fun being a beautiful bride, and got to have my dream wedding. We had camping sleepovers and it lasted all weekend.
Angie the World Traveller
I spent my whole 20's backpacking around the world, enjoying meeting people from many different cultures.
Places visited include most of Europe, Uk, Turkey, Morrocco, Spain, Egypt, Israel, Hawaii, USA, Mexico, Guatamala, Costa Rica, Thailand and Indonesia. This set me up for my years in Tourism and Hospitality once back in Australia.
I LOVE being a Celebrant
All my dreams come true
After conducting a few commitment ceremonies and memorial funerals for family, friends and pets, I stepped into my new career and was Registered as a Marriage Celebrant. All my life I had many visions of myself speaking on a microphone, so it's now true.
I have stepped into my dream career and a star is born! I have found my calling.
Pet & Housesitting
Avail on Sunshine & Gold Coasts
I LOVE animals! I moonlight as a House and Pet Sitter, so I get my fill of furbabies.
I have been looking after other people's pets since my own dog Nikita passed in 2013. I love to live in the pets own homes, so they get plenty of love and attention.
I love spending time alone, yet surrounded by animals, so this suits me perfectly!
Tour Guide Award Winner
Airlie Beach & Whitsundays
I was an awesome tour guide for many years working on the tourist boats, taking people on snorkelling safaris and guided aboriginal bush walks at the Whitsunday Islands, and out to Whitehaven Beach and the Great Barrier Reef. I even owned my own tour bus!!
I won "Hostess with the Mostest", Tour Guide of the Year in 2000 with Fantasea Cruises.
Song Writing, Poetry & Video Presentations
I discovered a gift and talent for song writing and poetry throughout the years, which I made into awesome video presentations. They celebrate my life, and honour family, friendship, pets, life, love and loss.
They are free to share if you want to see some samples. Just ask me, and I'll include some here soon.
Honouring Loved Ones
I am very honoured to be able to conduct many heartwarming memorial services over the years, celebrating the memory and life of my grandparents, friends and various pets. I even write my own songs and make them into a presentation videos to play at the service. If you need help with Memorial Services or Presentation Videos, please just ask.
"Born to be a Great Celebrant"
Always with a smile, making people feel welcomed and loved. My ceremonies create memories to live on for generations to come.
