Your reliable, friendly & professional
marriage celebrant

My experience as a wedding celebrant is recognised for the support that I provide to couples looking to enjoy their own special ceremony.

Since my appointment in 2004 by the Attorney General’s Department I have performed more than 1,000 ceremonies throughout South-East Queensland and Northern New South Wales.

As well as conducting ceremonies and presenting your official Marriage Certificate I am also relied upon to ensure that all runs smoothly. I conduct rehearsals in preparation for your wedding day and make sure that your ceremony flows with impeccable style, elegance and grace.

Based at the northern end of the Gold Coast, I travel wherever you plan to get wed, from Maleny on the Sunshine Coast to the Byron Bay Northern Rivers region, inland to Toowoomba or Dalby and of course to all major towns and cities in the area including Brisbane CBD and Ipswich.

Punctual and with exceptional attention to detail, I am also discrete and always dress to compliment your bridal party colour scheme. I ensure that you – my bride and groom – are the feature of your wedding ceremony. In me you will find the calm reassurance needed during your beautiful ceremony.

  • "Karen was the celebrant for our wedding on Mt Tamborine. From the moment we met her, I knew she would make us feel comfortable and make our day special. I love that she matches her outfit in with your colour themes, it's a special touch that you'd never even think of and makes your photos look great. Karen is warm, professional and a great laugh and we highly recommend her as a celebrant x"

Two appointments. At our first appointment I complete your Notice of Intended Marriage and verify the appropriate documents. We will also go through your plans for the wedding day. I will also provide you with a copy of my own extensive wedding manual to help with advice and inspiration.

At the second appointment we get creative. This is where we discuss your ideas and turn them into a meaningful ceremony.

The rehearsal. You choose when you want to have your rehearsal. Unless otherwise specified we will conduct this at your venue on the day prior to your ceremony.

On your wedding day I conduct the ceremony and present you with an official Marriage Certificate. As a very experienced celebrant, I am relied upon to ensure that everything runs smoothly prior to and during your wedding.

Please contact me via e-mail and mobile as many times as you like. Together we will create the perfect ceremony for your wedding day.

I have a MIPRO PA system if required to ensure all guests hear your ceremony.

Tell me all about your wedding plans
