Authorised Marriage Celebrant

Wedding Celebrant Camden.jpg

As a Celebrant I love creating exceptional Ceremonies for the very special couples and families I am so lucky to work with. I get to see the beauty of the love you hold in your hearts for one another and it is such an amazing privilege to help you create the miles stone memories at your Ceremonies that will bring you happiness and smiles to you for many years.

I have a background as a professional speaker, presenter and event organiser for large organisations, where I learned what it takes to create smooth, fun and polished events. I have also worked in the wedding industry for many years, making my brides and grooms shine on their Wedding day as their make-up artist. In more recent years I have stepped out from behind the scenes to use my skills as a presenter to create a wonderful experience for you and your guests as your Celebrant.

I focus on bringing warmth, calm, fun and energy to your special day and I will make sure that you and your guests are drawn in to focus on your loving Ceremony so that you will all take away memories to treasure for a lifetime.

Renewal of Vows

A Vow Renewal Ceremony is an opportunity for a couple to renew the vows that they made to each other when they first got married. This type of ceremony is similar to a commitment ceremony, in that it does not contain any legal elements.


It is a way to commemorate a love that has deepened or matured between the couple. This ceremony celebrates the meaningful experiences of the past; it also symbolises that you choose to move forward into an exciting and fresh future together.


Starting from $650




A naming ceremony is an opportunity to welcome your child into your family and the wider community and to publicly pledge your love and support to them. It is an alternative to a religious christening or baptism. A Naming Ceremony is a beautiful focal point for a family celebration that can be conducted at any time but it is commonly held within the 1st year of your child's life -very often in conjunction with the child's first birthday celebrations. It is a milestone event for a family and it allows them to express what it means to have this new child in their lives through bespoke commitments, readings and rituals. This creates and reinforces the bonds that are needed for families to feel knitted into their community.


Starting from $450

From the initial contact to the end, Carol made the whole process easy and fun. Carol was nothing but informative, professional and patient (if your late like I was) Carol put up with my script changes and was just genuinely lovely. I highly recommend Carol to be your celebrant.
