Marriages, funerals, vow renewals, naming ceremonies and other memorable events, I am your Celebrant for any special occasion.
As a registered Civil Celebrant, I offer personalised and meaningful ceremonies that honour any special milestone. Whatever the occasion, I will work with you to create a ceremony that reflects what is important to you. In a career spanning nursing, ambulance and community services, I have always been driven and dedicated to making a difference in the lives of others. It is this passion that I draw upon when working with clients during their special moments in time.

"I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."
The transition through life brings with it significant milestones along with many special events. Ceremony and ritual are a memorable part of honouring these events that mark the passage of a lifetime. Whether it be welcoming a new family member, the commitment of a couple or a final farewell, it is important to celebrate or commemorate these times with respect and dignity.
Whether you have a clear vision of your ceremony, or no idea where to start, we will work together to ensure your vision becomes a reality. I feel strongly about building great relationships and striving for excellence. Your ceremony can be as simple or as personalised as you wish. Whether it be an inside venue, park, garden, beach or in bushland (I have even conducted a ceremony in hospital), I aim to make the whole process as easy and as stress free as possible.
The testimonials I receive reaffirm why I strive to provide the best service possible. No occasion is too big or too small. From a large gathering to an intimate registry office style wedding, the possibilities are endless...

"Sadly my 18 year old stepson passed away tragically and unexpectedly. Wendy bought dignity to a very emotional occasion. Not only were the family dealing with overwhelming disbelief and grief we had the added burden of 2 parents no longer married suddenly bought together again to plan a funeral that just shouldn't have happened. Wendy added wisdom, kindness and empathy to a situation no family should go through. We will be forever grateful."
"To Wendy, Thank you, Thank you! We can’t find the words to express how much you’re going above and beyond, to make our day even more special, means to us! With love and appreciation."
"Hi Wendy, Just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your work on our wedding day. Kristy and I were so happy with our ceremony. We loved the way you worked with us and gave us the freedom to do things our own way. It was great to have the flexibility to make our own additions and really personalise the ceremony. Thanks again for giving us a great ceremony. We loved it!"
"Thankyou Wendy, Your amazing and were great at helping us through the nerves! Will highly recommend you to anyone looking for a celebrant."
"Wendy, we will be forever in your debt. No one else could had delivered such a personal and professional service with 4 hrs notice especially on Christmas Eve coming to the hospital like it happens every day. Your attention to detail has left us all with the most precious memories. Thanks"

"Hi Wendy, I just wanted to say a very big thank you for the lovely service you delivered to honor my Nanna's life. So many people commented on how lovely you were and what a beautiful service it was, and I couldn't agree more. I know Nanna would have been very happy. You were extremely compassionate and caring, very organized, and we felt that your calming nature was very reassuring at such a sad and stressful time.
You were able to offer some very good advice when it came to my two little children. Your suggestions for ways of allowing them to be part of the funeral and mourning process, and to help them to understand what was going on were fantastic. Your advice was pinnacle to their ability to cope with their loss and allowed them to see death, although very sad, as a natural part of life. I also want to thank you for just being there for me when I delivered the eulogy. Having that support really helped and was very much appreciated."
"Wendy, thank you so much for doing such a wonderful job at mums funeral today. It was a wonderful service and I appreciate everything you have done for the family it meant so much to us, thank you so much again. Xx"
"Wendy you made the service extra special, thank you very much x"
