How long have you been a celebrant?
I trained to be a celebrant in 2004

What do you most enjoy about your line of work?
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.

Smith Photography will be interviewing more wedding professionals down the track and have started building a list of Sydney wedding professionals, check it out.

This from Craig & Lisa about their Sydney Wedding

We are both from the UK. Lisa is from Cardiff, Wales and I am from Glasgow, Scotland.

We chose Sydney because we had planned to visit Australia and thought that Sydney would be an ideal and memorable location for our wedding.

After our wedding we travelled to Ayers Rock, then on to Cairns where we hired a campervan and travelled north to Cape Tribulation and then south visiting lots of places such as Port Douglas, the Whitsundays, the Great Barrier Reef, Hervey Bay and Brisbane.

We had a great time in Australia and our highlights included our wedding in Sydney ! We loved the city and plan to visit again soon. Also, we were amazed on our whale watching trp in Hervey Bay – we couldn’t believe how close we got to the whales – awesome !

If we were to offer any advice to anyone planning an overseas wedding it would be to consult with the relevant embassy and to plan early to ensure that all the relevant paperwork is completed on time.

This wedding was a beautiful affair with a certain charm and class. The bridal party was impeccibly dressed and there was attention to all the little details. One of my favourite weddings that I have photographed.
