One of you proposed and the other said yes…
Congratulations, you're getting married, woo!
You’re now on the awesome journey of organising your big day.
There are probably all sorts of feelings, emotions and questions running through your head right now, but rest assured I am on hand to help guide you through every step of the process.
Why did I become a marriage celebrant?
It all started when I was an angsty, know-it-all, hormonal teenager, falling in and out of love. My beautiful Nana Kath often told me, in her thick northern English accent, that I was “in love with being in love”. Back then, I had no idea what she was talking about and often responded with a typical teenage eye-roll. But now as a happy, grounded, emotional (okay, I'm still hormonal) adult, I know exactly what she meant. I truly am in love with being in love. I love the romance, and the 'how we met’ story; the flushed cheeks and the happily ever after, and I truly believe there is a person out there for everyone to loveforlife.
Who am I?
I was born in a little town called Stockport in the late 1970s. My parents realised there were far better places to live and applied to emigrate halfway across the globe, without ever actually visiting the place. We were accepted pretty quickly because there was 'an abundance of little boys' within my age group in 1988, and so they rushed our application through!
We felt like we’d arrived in paradise, and moved right across the road from the beach. I spent the first part of my Aussie life on the Central Coast, that little stretch of awesomeness between Sydney and Newcastle. I bounced around a bit after completing my HSC - my extreme party years! But it wasn’t until I finally decided to apply to study Television Production at University in Wagga Wagga that I realised just how much I needed to be near the ocean.
My partner (a Lennox Head local) and I met when we were both living in Manly. He applied to an ad I had placed on Flatmate Finders. Instead, he found a place overlooking Manly Cove, and we started dating. We both moved to the Northern Rivers in 2014, and we’ve been blissfully happy ever since.
I love travel, parties, exercise, equality, family, writing, friends, storytelling, gardening, sunsets, cocktails, dogs, children, and love.
I hate washing-up and eggplant.
Oh, and I’ve just started surfing, or rather, learning how to belly flop from a surfboard without breaking my neck!
So, why me?
I will immerse myself in your love story, and design a ceremony as unique and raw as your love. I approach both life and work with sincerity, honesty and compassion. To me, there is nothing more rewarding than seeing two people in love, and to empower the beginning of their loveforlife journey together.
There will definitely be lots of laughs, maybe a couple of sweet tears, and a guarantee that everyone attending your wedding ceremony will be feeling super charged to celebrate your love!
If, however, I’m not your girl I truly wish you all the best on your loveforlife journey, and wish you a long, happy and healthy life together.
