Dear Bride and Bridegroom
As your celebrant it is my aim to ensure that together we create the marriage ceremony you have always imagined for the two of you. The focus of the day will be the love that you share as you make this commitment to each other in front of your family and friends. Your ceremony will be full of love and laughter, and be relaxed so that you both enjoy it. In the future I hope you will remember it as the most wonderful experience that you have shared together.
You probably have many questions to ask about the celebrant who you considering, so here’s just a little bit about me – I have lived most of my life in cities – Adelaide, Melbourne and Canberra – my husband and I chose to move to the Echuca-Moama district in 2004 because we had fallen in love with the River Murray and this beautiful region. We are a second marriage, and have children who live in other parts of Victoria.
After careers in teaching, manufacturing & retailing, I wanted to keep on meeting new people and be involved in a happy time in their lives. I studied to be a marriage celebrant with one of Victoria’s leading and most experienced celebrants, and maintain my professional development each year. I am a member of the Australian Federation of Civil Celebrants, and this year I am on the committee organising the Echuca-Moama Wedding Expo.
I will give you as much time as you need to choose the style and content of your ceremony – traditional or informal – for an intimate or large gathering - and i can assist you to write your own special vows to each other if you wish.
I cover all the legal requirements, for both Victoria and New South Wales, and I am experienced in multicultural weddings and have married couples from overseas.
I love marrying young couples, as well as those who have found love again, just as I did.
PS. May the love with which you join hearts and hands today never fail, but grow deeper and surer with every year you spend together.
Carol, thank you so much for helping us create the most perfect ceremony. From our very first meeting at the Wedding Expo you have been most helpful, it made it so much easier for us. We couldn’t have asked for a better celebrant.
