Karen Hamilton

Civil Marriage Celebrant

Friendly, caring and professional. My aim is to make sure your day is perfect and just the way you wanted!

My previous corporate role has always involved contact with people from all walks of life and I am a 'people-person'. A few years ago I decided to embark on a career path where all of this could be embraced. With experience and knowledge in event management and customer service I can offer a special day which is tailored for you.

My friendly, relaxed but professional manner puts people at ease. You can let me know what is important to you about your day, and I will work with you to make sure that the day is everything you had hoped for. It is important that I listen and understand what you want and also what you DON'T want. My job is ensuring your day is as relaxed and stress free as possible. Your wedding day should be something you look back upon with a smile! If you would like to meet me face to face I would love to hear from you.

If you think that I am the right fit please feel free to reach out and get in touch.

Starting from $550

Your wedding day is one of the most memorable days of your life. If you decide to invite me to solemnise your marriage on this special day I will view this as an honour and a privilege. I can offer ideas, guidance and support as well as provide a personalised ceremony to celebrate you and your partner. All the paperwork will be taken care of so that you can relax and enjoy your big day! My most popular package with your story, unlimited communication, 50 km travel, and the use of my equipment (including PA and signing table) starts at $750.

A 'legals-only' fuss-free ceremony midweek is $450. You just need to provide one month's notice and 2 witnesses (I can probably help with that too!).

Starting from $550

Where your day doesn't have to be a 'big' day, where you just want to celebrate the two of you, perhaps in a location which is meaningful for you! I can still make your day special, memorable and fuss-free! Includes all legal paperwork, marriage registration and unlimited contact from start to finish.

Starting from $350

Who doesn't love babies! They bring such joy..and a little bit of work, but who cares about that. A Naming Day provides a lovely welcome to family and friends. It is an opportunity to introduce your special new arrival to their new 'tribe'. You can include siblings, friends. It's all up to you.

Starting from $500

Life gets busy and sometimes we forget to stop and remember the important things in life! If you have decided to celebrate the love and life you have shared for many years then I can help. Your relationship has no doubt grown and been tested in ways you could not have imagined - the stories are endless! How fantastic to celebrate this with family, old and new friends!

Starting from $450

Saying goodbye to your loved one is never going to be easy but I can help make sure that the day reflects the person, who and what was important to them. No one can tell you how to grieve but you can tell me how you want to say goodbye, special memories you want to share, people to be involved in different ways.

Client Testimonial

"Thank you so much for being part of Faye's funeral service last week. You showed genuine sympathy and support both in helping David, Robyn and me planning the day, and in leading the family and friends through the service."

"Thank you for the booklet of Mum's service on Friday. It is a lovely keepsake. Thank you for the dignified and caring way in which you conducted the service for Mum. It was very much appreciated."


Karen was a fantastic celebrant. From the first moment we met her, she was friendly and caring. We knew right away this was the person for us. Karen made the whole process very easy and enjoyable. She made our ceremony just the way we wanted it. Simple and fun. On the day she was great at keeping everything in order and run smoothly, even with the rain and the wild life acting up. I highly recommend Karen for anyone looking for a celebrant.

" Kathryn & Jason

Karen did a fabulous job; she was incredibly warm and helpful throughout the entire process. She made sure to meet with my husband and me several times before our ceremony to understand what type of service was right for us. We still get compliments about our beautiful wedding several months later. I would highly recommend Karen!

Amelia & Trent

Where do I start!! I'll start with Keenan & I would like to thank Karen from the bottom of our hearts for conducting our wedding ceremony at Peppers Creek in the Hunter Valley. Throughout the process leading up to the wedding Karen was so helpful and provided lots of information to help us pick the perfects vows. Karen wrote the most amazing ceremony for us and included every reason & moment why Keenan & I were getting married. The service was light-hearted and honest. Karen also made a special tribute to those who were no longer with us and was so very moving. Karen went above and beyond what she needed to and we will be forever thankful . I highly recommend Karen for your special day or any other occasion. You will not be disappointed. Thank you again xxx

Georgie & Keenan

From our first meeting with Karen she made us feel at ease and relaxed. She took the time to get to know us as a couple and as individuals. Karen was a great support through the whole planning process and made sure our ceremony was everything we wanted it to be. On our wedding day Karen's calm and professional manner made sure everything went off without a problem. Even assisting us to receive our marriage license and creating a keepsake booklet with our ceremony inside that has made us smile and get emotional as if it were our wedding day all over again. Karen exceeded our expectations at every point and we would highly recommend her as a celebrant.
