A little about me...
Helping you and your partner plan and celebrate one of life's most beautiful moments, in a way that truly reflects and celebrates both of you individually and as a couple, would be an absolute honour. I am fortunate that so many couples already have placed their trust in me and now that we have full marriage equality in Australia I look forward to helping all couples to plan the perfect declaration of their love for one another.
As a sustainability professional for over 20 years, it means I care about people and the world we live in. I was born and bred in the UK and have lived in Melbourne for the last 13+ years. I am an experienced public speaker, trainer, writer and director of the performing arts and combine creativity and originality with a high degree of professionalism. Working together with you, I have the skills and experience to ensure that your wedding day is the one you dreamed of and one you will never forget.
I really enjoy being part of people’s lives at a very special time. Guiding couples to make the day very special and being a part of it is a real thrill for me. I’ve met some lovely people along the way. My main objective is to discover what is most important to you, then turn that into an expressive, memorable ceremony - one that reflects your union and your lifestyle. I’d love to get to know you, hear how you met and what your hopes and aspirations are for the future.
Choosing to have your ceremony conducted by an Authorised Marriage Celebrant, means you have many choices. I'll be with you all the way to guide you with those choices and to co-create the ceremony that is right for you. Whilst I'm not religious, I do have a spiritual side that centres me. People tell me I have a calming, gentle manner, which is especially helpful when when working with clients.
Same sex marriages are now legally recognised within Australia and as a member of the LGBTIQ community, Joy member and marriage equality campaigner I am only too happy I can now conduct weddings between any two people who love one another. Australia is now a fairer and more equitable society.
I am based in East Melbourne, close to the Melbourne CBD, but am certified to conduct civil wedding ceremonies in any part of Australia.
