After many years working in the entertainment industry in the UK, I returned home to my native Australia a few years ago and found a wonderful new vocation in becoming a Registered Marriage Celebrant.
In my former professional life as a singer, actress and teacher I worked in film, on stage and in television, including being in the original London cast of 'Phantom of the Opera' and contributing vocals to the 'Lord of the Rings' and 'Harry Potter' movies, among many others. I have played to all sorts of audiences internationally in venues ranging from small and intimate halls to huge stadiums giving me wide experience in public speaking, performance and event co-ordination.
Since returning to Australia I have been appointed as Returning Officer in three NSW elections, a role which involved employing and managing up to 250 individuals and being responsible for the entire election process in my appointed area.
I am very approachable and friendly and I bring warmth, humour, and boundless enthusiasm, as well as all the skills of a performer, writer and event manager and a wealth of life experience to the role of celebrant. I am passionate about helping couples achieve their wedding day dreams using all these life skills I've acquired over the years. I support marriage equality and am thrilled that all couples are now able to declare their love for each other and their future together through marriage.
I am lucky enough to live with my husband David and golden retriever Barley in the stunningly beautiful Sapphire Coast region of far south New South Wales where wonderful natural locations for your wedding dream are available in abundance. However, I will happily travel further if required. If you think I may be the celebrant for you please contact me. I would love to hear from you to discuss your plans in an obligation-free interview.
