About me

Your first question is probably: “Do I want this person to be my marriage celebrant?” So, here’s some information about me myself to give you an idea of what I am like. I hope that the stories, photographs, and testimonials on my site will give you the best impression of me, but you might also be interested in what motivates and qualifies a person to become a celebrant, so that is what I have tried to address in this ‘about me’ page.


I have two adult children and have been happily married for over thirty-five years, and I’ve lived in Melbourne my whole life. I have retired from my career in education which spanned over forty years. This has given me vast experience in event organisation and planning, public speaking, and most importantly experience with people. Perfect training for a Melbourne marriage celebrant!

I am a qualified and professional person. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree and a Diploma of Education from Melbourne University, and a Graduate Diploma of Civil Celebrancy from Monash University. My studies, which took several years, have given me a much more thorough education than the short TAFE course offers which is what most celebrants do.

Becoming a marriage celebrant in my retirement was a natural choice for me. I have a warm, friendly personality; a lively sense of humour and a realistic understanding of human nature. I am calm and relaxed and extremely well-organised. I decided to become a celebrant years before retiring from my career in education.

The most important thing people know about me, is that they can rely on me and trust me. My goal is to be one of the most professional, sincere and fun marriage celebrants Melbourne has to offer. I am sure that I can help you develop the Melbourne wedding ceremony you and rest assured I will always put your needs and wishes first.
