there was no one else I needed to be, just me.”

About Me

 

You’re thinking about entrusting one of the most important moments of your life to me, so let’s get to know each other.

I’m passionate about treading lightly on the Earth and caring for our planet. This flows through all areas of my life, from the sustainable clothes I wear to never wasting food. I aim to live waste-free and write about this on my blog, One Family, One Planet, which you can check out here.

I love animals! If you would like your pet to be part of your ceremony, I’m your gal!

I married my favourite person, Dan, on the side of cliff in the Blue Mountains of NSW in 2002.  Together we’re raising one awesome human, a brilliant three-legged rescue dog, a fabulous flock of chickens, and a wild and messy garden (that is either flourishing in winter rains or struggling through the summer heat).

I’m super-organised and reliable – traits I used to think were boring, but now realise are actually really important for a calm life.

 

I’m a professional actor who has been performing and speaking in front of people for over 30 years, and a wordsmith who loves language and understands the power of story.

As a Commonwealth-registered Marriage Celebrant with the Attorney- General’s Department, I can guide you through all the necessary legals and paperwork, and legally marry you - anywhere in Australia.

I would love to be the celebrant families call on again and again throughout the circle of life.  From a namegiving for a baby or a person embracing a new identity, through coming-of-age ceremonies for teens, marriage unions, and acknowledging the end of a life with a funeral ceremony. 

All ceremonies will be co-created with my couples and families with empathy, care and love.

About You

 

You are driven by love – love for your person, and love for our planet.

You want a ceremony that is authentically you, not a cookie-cutter rah-rah affair that is about what other people expect.

You love connecting with your tribe - people who share your values.

You want to be guided and supported through the process by a caring, empathetic person.

You want your celebration to reflect the way you live your life, treading lightly on our planet – and maybe even leaving it a little better.

Think we might be a good match? To arrange an obligation-free chat over a coffee or kombucha, and find out if we resonate IRL, email me.

About my business

 

From the refillable pen we’ll use to sign your paperwork to my cruelty-free lipstick, know that I have researched and made conscious choices about every aspect of this business, just as I do in my life.

This business has the permaculture principles of Earth Care, People Care and Fair Share at its core.

Earth care: I care about environmental sustainability in day-to-day business operations and also help couples and families plan eco-conscious ceremonies and events.

People care: Love comes in many forms and I respect and honour this in all my communications. Products are sourced with ethical and social responsibility in mind.

Fair share: I maintain a healthy balance between work and play. Prioritising self-care means I can be a better celebrant and the business can give more back.

Sustainability and low-waste initiatives

 

Paper use is kept to a minimum, with online digital documents preferred. Any necessary printing and paperwork is done on 100% recycled paper whenever possible.

I keep my travel to a minimum and try to walk, ride my bike or use public transport before starting my car. My obligation-free first meetings are held in local (East Victoria Park area) cafes that support sustainability and social responsibility. If travelling out of Perth for a ceremony, I try and rideshare with another vendor (eg with photographer Kat Wray of Red Eclectic). My car is a hybrid vehicle to minimise emissions.

Less stuff, more meaning

 

I am proud to be one of WA's first ambassadors for eco-ethical weddings with Less Stuff More Meaning and to be stockist of their Mindfully Wed e-guide.

Code of Practice

 

As a Commonwealth Registered Celebrant, I am bound by the Code of Practice for Marriage Celebrants
