Karen Hamilton

Civil Marriage Celebrant


I have always been interested in people - listening to your stories and connecting.

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 your wishes are. My job is ensuring your wishes are fulfilled. 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.

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!

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 $400

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.

Reviews

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.

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 on 25th March this year 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.
