Weddings and Civil Unions

I am an experienced celebrant who brings a special flavour to each ceremony, so that each couple’s special day is just what they want. Here are some typical comments:  

December 2018

Many, many thanks for wrangling the bride and groom, setting the tone, colour co-ordinating the scarves, welcoming the guests and being the joyful, organised, and wonderful person that you are!  We couldn't have done it without you.



March 2018

We had a wonderful day, thank you so much! Liz is singing your praises far and wide, she's calling you the "bride whisperer" as you're so calming and confident and competent!  It really was a lovely day, and in no small part to you. Thanks again for everything.

Oh, Pinky... we are absolutely in awe of how much love you swirled into the atmosphere at our wedding. You gracefully embraced our family and friends to join us on a journey together. 

You are an incredible lady who made us all feel warm and fuzzy. You were calming when the butterflies swept in, and you were queen of knowing exactly when to stand by our sides or when to let us shine. You knew exactly how to build anticipation and you knew exactly how to elegantly put more energy into a moment to make it grand!  All of our family still say how much love was in the air at our wedding. You made it effortless. You made it about us. And you made it fun.  Thank you for marrying us, Pinky.

We really wanted to thank you again for being part of our wedding day. You were everything we hoped for, and more, in a celebrant! It felt like we had a friend up there with us, and we had such a wonderful time! You even inspired one of our guests to get his license to be a celebrant, which he has just received!

Wow!! Thank you SO much for such an amazing day on Friday!! It was such an incredibly special day for us and the ceremony that you delivered for us was a massive part of that - we cannot thank you enough. Everyone commented on how natural, relaxed and loving the ceremony was and that’s all thanks to your amazing work! The whole day blew us away and for us it was absolutely perfect. We’re so extremely grateful for the role you played and how calm and composed you were. I think everyone there now wants a Pinky wedding!!

Thank you so much for everything you did that made our civil union such a wonderful day. It was absolutely perfect, everything we hoped – relaxed, loving, fun and enough gravitas to make it memorable without being stuffy.

I never thought I'd say this, but my wedding was definitely one of the best days of my life. (I thought it would be stressful and overrated). I can't thank you enough for all you did to make our wedding so special. So many people commented on how awesome you are.

Pinky, what a wonderful ceremony you ran. We have had such positive comments on the ceremony, and how you projected such warmth throughout, and really focussed on us. We loved our special day and wanted to say thank you for pulling it all together.

Corinne & Mike

Thank you so much for being our wonderful celebrant. We really loved the warm but efficient and professional way in which you ran the ceremony – even with the unexpected fire! We all agreed that you were well and truly in control, and that we were very happy to have you there! Many of our guests have complimented us on our ceremony too.

Every single person who attended our day, or has seen the wedding video, commented on how wonderful you were, and how much effort you put in to get to know us and make our ceremony extra special. We absolutely loved our day and wouldn’t have changed a thing. From the bottom of our hearts – thank you!

Thanks a million for making our wedding day so special. The way you told our story was perfect, and your delivery was just right. Your calm presence helped us relax and enjoy ourselves, knowing that you had everything covered. We also really enjoyed working with you in the lead-up to the wedding – you made everything so easy for us, while also taking the time to get to know us.

Isabella and James

We feel very blessed that we had you as our celebrant as well as your guidance through the process both in the lead-up and on the day. The ceremony was exactly as we wanted - really nicely structured striking a great tone whilst not being overly formal, but fun too and still balanced with the gravity of the meaning of what we were all there for. Just perfect!

Martijn and Brigid

November 2013

We just wanted to say a huge thank you for being the celebrant at our wedding! The ceremony was awesome and we haven't stopped buzzing about it since... we thought it really captured the way we feel. Thanks again for supporting us through the whole process. We will definitely recommend you to anyone else that is looking for a celebrant.

I am so pleased you were the celebrant for Al’s funeral.  It could not have gone better.  Many people came up to me afterwards and said it was the best funeral they had ever been to.  Al would have just loved it.  Thank you.



October 2018

I give thanks & gratitude, to you Pinky, for meeting with Janet & Bob, to guiding her family through the service details (fresh off the plane) and delivering Janet's service from the heart!  We have one very happy family, with caring for their dear Janet.

Clare, funeral assistant.


October 2018

A short note to express my personal thanks and gratitude to you for the professional and thoughtful service that you that you have rendered for Janet’s funeral.  I have admired your thorough and detailed attention to all the many aspects of your celebrant service. This is the first time that I have been closely involved with a funeral, and I have much appreciated your support in this difficult period.

You really took the time to understand who Bruce was and captured it in the service perfectly. This included the words you said to describe him, and finding texts from authors he respected. Your guidance in helping us structure the service, and oversight of the logistical aspects on the day were also very valuable

I heard many comments afterwards from all sorts of people saying the service and you, as celebrant, were perfect. I don't think Bruce could have had a better sendoff.

Thank you so much for the amazing job you did as Celebrant at our Mum’s funeral recently. I am so glad I had the conversation with mum about her choice of you as Funeral Celebrant. I really appreciated your calmness, confidence and reassurance throughout the process. I also appreciated the way in which you helped facilitate a sense of celebration at the funeral. So many people told me after the funeral how wonderful you had been and how ‘real’ the funeral was. Thanks again for helping make a day I was dreading into a joyful celebration of mum’s life. Mum would have loved it!
