Keep It Sweetly Simple!

Simple easy service by one of Canberra's most experienced celebrants. (I have married over 1400 couples.) Your beautiful memorable alternative to a Registry Office wedding. Only one one-hour meeting required and the next time we meet, it's your wedding day!

Do you plan to legalise your marriage in Australia because you had a beautiful magical wedding on a beach overseas? 

Or do you plan to do this in the future?

Kayla and Jason married on a Bali beach. I saw their gorgeous photos. Their wedding was their dream come true. 

On Sunday 21-11-21 they legalised their marriage in a simple ceremony in the Heart Garden. They invited two special friends to be their witnesses. After the ceremony we had some delicious French champagne to celebrate – I provided the crystal flutes. We signed the three certificates and the occasion was complete. More happy memories for this so-in-love couple 😊

If your circumstance is similar, you’d be most welcome to have a simple ceremony in my Heart Garden to legalise your marriage – either after or before your wedding in a special place somewhere else (including in Australia). Or perhaps you’d like a friend or family member to marry you. If that’s the case, I’d be very happy to attend your ceremony, just to do the legal parts.

See Wedding Pages in this blog for more information about a simple wedding, and a Contact Page, so that we can arrange a one-hour meeting together to prepare for the legalisation of your marriage.

Hello, and welcome

I can't believe it's been over a year since I posted on my blog!

I guess I’ve kept my focus on Facebook and Instagram. Blogger and Pinterest have gone into the background.

And now it’s March 2020 already. Last year was a happy one for me with lots of weddings, and sadly, a funeral for a friend. (I’m no longer a funeral celebrant – it was just a one-off.)

Since my last post in October 2018, there have been many wonderful weddings. I thought it would be a nice idea to include lots of photos in one long blogpost.

If you'd like me to be celebrant at your wedding - like almost fourteen hundred other couples - then please contact me here. Or send me a Message on facebook Messenger. Or phone or text me on 0406 376 375 anytime from 9am to 9pm, any day. I'd love to be there for you both on your most special day.
