"If you're not having fun, you're not doing it right."



Why I became a celebrant

I became a celebrant because I believe a good wedding ceremony starts a memorable day in the right way!

It's my mission to work with lovely couples to create a ceremony they are thrilled to share with family and friends. Where the smiles start and never stop.

In my world, there's no such thing as cutting to the "fun part" because the celebrations start the moment your ceremony does.

2018 - NOW

How the journey began

I did my celebrant training back in 2018 but the idea was sparked long before then...

In 2016 my then fiancé proposed, with a prop ring. He knew picking the perfect ring for me would be tricky and he was right. As with all things in life, I like to add a bit of ‘Prueness’ in this case it was a black diamond! I Insta-hunted down a jeweller with a glam vibe who could source a black diamond. Our experience designing our ring with our jeweller was incredible.

And it got me thinking… What a time to be in people’s lives! What a job to have! I started pondering how I could create the same experience in my own work life…

I’m creative and I have this snobby ‘Bachelor of Creative Arts’ degree in Theatre Studies, Creative Writing and Visual Arts that I do nothing with… Hmm… I could put some of those skills to use as a marriage celebrant!

Once Australia voted "Yes" to marriage equality, I signed up. A 12-month course, passed entrance exam and 150+ ceremonies later - here I am, creating unique and inspired ceremonies for lovely couples.

On a more personal note...

Tequila is my superpower. Tequila shots are my ultimate party starter and I am known to have one before writing a ceremony.

I live in Aspendale, Vic and am Bayside born and bred. I feel most at home by the seaside and I'm one of those psychos who is in the sea at 6am without a wetsuit, simply chasing the cold water immersion benefits.

By day I'm known as "Teddi's mum" or "Jasmine's mum". Teddi is a free-spirited little preppy and Jasmine is a very sassy second grader.

In 2021 Dave and I made it official and became husband and wife at my favourite venue of all time - Blacksmith Provedore in Mulwala NSW. You can read more about that here.

And I met because Dave needed someone to puppy sit the wrinkly, roly poly dog you see in the photos - SADIEEE!!! I puppy sat her when she was only 10 weeks old while he went to Santorini for his sister's wedding. We stayed in touch, mainly talking about Sadie until he asked me out for drinks. As they say, the rest is history!
