Celebrate your love, your way

Beyond the dress, flowers, cars, and venues, there is your Ceremony – the heart and soul of your special day. It’s intrinsically personal and unique, just like your relationship, this is where your words and your promises count. Your future is created by the words you speak.

Picture your perfect wedding ceremony. The one you have always dreamed of. Walking down the aisle towards the person you will stay with for the rest of your life, and whom you love with all your heart. Your family and friends snap photos and smile as you approach, and everyone falls into silence as you stand beside your future life partner. Everyone is quiet, waiting for the Celebrant to speak.

This is the most important part of the entire day… what happens next will make all the difference. The Celebrant’s words cannot be standard, flat or boring. They need to be so special and uniquely yours that they will be remembered for all the days to come. THIS is your moment. And you want to make sure it is absolutely PERFECT!

Because in your dreams, every detail matters

On Your Special Day

You need a Celebrant that can help create and deliver a unique, personal, and memorable ceremony full of love and laughter. An indispensable member of your Wedding Support Team, advising, guiding, assisting, and supporting you from first contact, through your ceremony and to the end of your magnificent and special day.

Did you know…

Only a very small portion of your ceremony forms the legal part of your marriage, so there’s plenty of room to create your own unique ceremony and vows that express your love and commitment to each other and the heart and soul of your relationship. Also, there are so many lovely rituals that add another dimension to your ceremony and make it really something to remember and talk about long after the day.  Today’s weddings are shaped by the merging of cultures and social trends. There has never been such an exciting time to get married as today – anything goes!

Whatever you’ve been dreaming of for your special day, we can create it together. Just for you!

Ann very clearly explained all the legal requirements involved in the marriage ceremony and worked with us to add a personalised touch to our celebration. Ann kept us organised and helped make the day flow smoothly. I cannot recommend Ann highly enough.

GRANT & SARAH MASON , 21st Mar 2020

Ann took everything in stride, handling missing guests, missing bridesmaids, social distancing, and a hysterical bride with aplomb. Thank you, Ann for your efforts in making the happy day happen; your help was truly instrumental in making it perfect. Would recommend in a heartbeat.

TONY & MARY JONES , 21st Mar 2020

Ann was our celebrant and it was also her Birthday!! A lovely day and just how we wanted it to be – nice and simple. Fully recommended and easy to communicate with from start to finish and afterwards too.

LEE & SAM HERON , 21st Nov 2019

I was amazed by her attitude, ok – just do it now – She lives “Now” and I admire how she is. She is very active and has amazing energy. She has lots of interesting life stories to tell. I believe that one day she will write books – maybe it is one of her to-do lists.

Ann made the ceremony to fit my husband and I with our cars and Disney and made it so the ceremony was full of laughs. Ann really took the stress out of the legal side of things. I cannot thank you enough for being such a lovely person. We loved every second of working with you and every second of our ceremony. I will recommend you to any bride looking for a celebrant ❤
