Allow me to introduce myself as a Civil, Marriage and Event Celebrant specialising in stylish, personalised ceremonies for all your special occasions.


In 2004 I was registered by the Australian Attorney-General’s Department and as a registered marriage celebrant I undertake annual Ongoing Professional Development to maintain my skills and understanding of the Marriage Act and the celebrancy profession.


Over the years I have built a reputation for providing a quality service of excellence with special attention to detail and have a five star Certificate of Excellence.

My craft is to weave together a ceremony that reflects the essence of the marriage couple’s relationship and personal choices together with any cultural requirements they may have.


My background enables me to draw on a wealth of knowledge and skills gained from both business and multicultural involvements.  I am well travelled, have lived overseas, particularly in Asia, and I am very familiar and comfortable with people from all cultural backgrounds.


My involvement with various Associations both locally and overseas has enabled me to understand the importance of ceremony, ritual and rites of passage and the need to honour and celebrate important milestones in life.


In order to present a professional wedding service I believe the marriage ceremony must be able to be heard by all your guests.  I provide a PA sound system with both stand and hand held microphones for your Personal Vows and Exchange of Rings.  I use a music stand available for readings and I always arrive at least 45 minutes before the start of your marriage ceremony or at a mutually agreed time.


I respect your privacy and confidentiality and dress in accordance with the selected wedding style.


I look forward to assisting you with any enquiries or questions you may have either by phone or email.

It makes us proud


A word from our clients


"Thank you very much Margaret for all the time and effort that you put into our wedding service.

It certainly made our wedding day just perfect.


I must say that everyone commented on how well dressed and spoken you were and that you conducted the ceremony in a professional manner yet still maintaining

the romance of the day".



Jens and Kristi


"Margaret provided us with a beautiful and appropriate ceremony. She did a wonderful job of the presentation, delivery and choice of words and expressions. She also allowed us to use her own beautiful garden for the ceremony. Margaret made the entire wedding delightful and exactly as simple and uncomplicated as we wanted it. She did all the background paperwork and the day itself was smooth and easy for us.


Margaret wrote the ceremony but allowed us to contribute to the promises we made, working our expressions and choices immaculately."
