What a wonderful experience it is for me personally; as your chosen Celebrant, in that moment when I pronounce you to be husband and wife on your Wedding Day; or when I am there to help officially welcome and name your child; officiate at your Renewal of Vows Ceremony, or to share in the moment when you give your lives to one another in love, in a Commitment Ceremony . I love ceremonies and celebrations and love being a marriage celebrant. I am privileged in that I meet and work with the loveliest of couples, from all walks of life.
I come from a family background of 'forever' relationships that withstood the test of time and continued until death and yes, I have no doubt that those loving unions continue from this life on through eternity.
I know what it is like to be in love and I understand the sacrifices a couple makes when they go from their single life into that of sharing life with another in marriage. It isn't easy; there are adjustments to be made. There are highs and lows in every relationship and yours must be worked on every day, if it is to survive and flourish, to the winter of your lives.
I understand what is involved in being a parent; the joy, the pride, the heartache, the hard work, the commitment etc.
I was born in Goulburn, NSW and moved to Queensland with my family at the age of eight. We lived in Annerley in Brisbane. My husband and I were married in 1971 and are still deeply in love and happy. We have lived in Logan since 1972. We have two children; a son and daughter, and now a son in law and daughter in law and four grandchildren. We are each other's best friend. We support one another in our saddest times and laugh together through the happy times. We work through the hard times and encourage each other to grow as individuals within our marriage union. We talk things through and say sorry when we are wrong. I believe that the secret to a strong marriage lies in the art of communication and the ability to forgive and forget.
I love Creative writing and painting. I love nothing better than to sit at my computer and express myself through words, or to relax as I lose myself in an acrylic landscape or portrait. I love people, nature, animals and the joy of music.
I pride myself on being an honest and caring person. I am friendly and easy to talk to.
When it comes to ceremonies, your ceremony no matter how big or small, is treated as the most important day of my life also. I am professional, reliable and understanding.
I have been a Marriage Celebrant since 2008.
I thank you for taking the time to check out my website; I look forward to chatting with you sometime in the future.
