Celebrant

Annie believes there is humour in everyone’s story and she is here to help you find it.

Is there anything this woman can't do?

The simple answer is... Annie does anything she puts her mind too, and on top of all her other certifications, Annie is also a qualified marriage celebrant.

After marriage equality in Australia was achieved, Annie felt the time was right to become a celebrant and to add more diversity to the industry. 

Once she had completed the course, Annie worked at a funeral home for a year where she gained practical experience as a funeral assistant, while meeting other celebrants along the way. She cried, she laughed and provided support for strangers who had let her be present for some of their most deeply personal moments.

Each ceremony is tailored to suit your requirements and crafted with the highest attention to detail. 

For weddings, Annie is not only available as the celebrant, but also for MC duties at the reception so you can kick back and enjoy the party. In a past life, Annie worked in fine-dining so she knows how to coordinate with the kitchen and ensure everything flows smoothly. If you’re nice she might even pour you a drink, legally, thanks to her Responsible Service of Alcohol certificate.

Check out some of the testimonials below to hear from some happy couples.
