Being a celebrant is such a positive and intimate thing to do, it also combines a lot of the professional skills I have developed, coming from a theatre and design background.
Do any highlights come to mind or are there any special weddings that you have done?
All the weddings I do are so diverse and individual, I really like helping people express themselves and their love for each other.
What to you makes a wedding special?
I thought Laura and Andrew’s wedding was a perfect example of great planning, taste and self expression all on a reasonable budget.
Do you work mainly around the Sydney area?
I work mainly in the Sydney region but do travel, I will go as far as the couples travel allowance takes me!
You appear to cater to a large range of alternative or non-traditional wedding styles. What attracts you to this style of wedding?
I consider myself an alternative celebrant as I saw the need in the market place for one and am naturally a creative independent thinker who understands that self expression is a very important part of life, and very much part of a couples wedding day.
I was also brought up by my parents as a non religious humanist with strong values of equality and acceptance of all cultures.I think this has really shaped my ideals and has given me somewhat of a calling to be a celebrant who creates meaningful modern ceremonies.
For how long have you played the harp?
I come from musical Irish family and found my beloved harp and began playing it in 1997, I am self taught.
