“A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.” 

-Mignon McLaughlin 

Congratulations! You have decided to get married.

This is an exciting time for you both. Authorised to solemnise marriages according to Australian Law, I am trained and qualified to help you create the ceremony of your dreams and conduct your wedding ceremony.

With my guidance and assistance, you can include your own words, your choice of music, meaningful readings or poetry and symbols or traditions into your wedding ceremony. 

As your marriage celebrant, I will: 

  • Work with you to choose or compose a ceremony that meets your needs and reflects your expectations. 
  • Commit to provide you with the highest standards of service, privacy and confidentiality; and 
  • Provide access to resources and knowledge to draw upon, as you plan your special day. 

What does this mean? 

  • I have Professional Indemnity and Public Liability Insurance 
  • I have Copyright Protection 
  • I have access to a national resource network. 

This can provide you with the assurance that you are getting the best professional service in planning and celebrating your special day.

I served as a member of the Royal Australian Navy for many years and now run my own business and function in a part time capacity as a Chaplain. This background gives me a unique understanding of ceremony and the importance it plays in the celebration of life’s major milestones.

I particularly enjoy working with young couples in the community as they prepare for or continue in their marriage. 

As a husband for over 30 years, I know that marriage needs to be established on a solid foundation that is enhanced by a memorable ceremony celebrated with family and friends. A ceremony that includes all the aspects of your dream wedding by including your own words, your choice of music, meaningful readings or poetry and symbols or traditions. And yet, still meets the legal requirements of Australian Law. 

Your greatest desire is to have a wonderful ceremony, tailored with passion and sensitivity. Reflecting you as a couple. 

I offer a professional and consultative approach to helping you plan your ceremony. As a member of the Australian Federation of Civil Celebrants I have the backing of a National Organisation in providing for your needs.
