“From the very beginning Amanda walked us through everything and gave us the choice to have our ceremony exact how we wanted. She made everything so easy and was incredibly professional when it came to timelines and organising everything for us. Her humour was funny without being tacky and everything went off without a hitch. We would recommend Amanda to anyone wanting a fun, fresh celebrant who we actually enjoy seeing in our photographs. Thanks Amanda, you’re AMAZING” - Jamie & Jason
“Amanda went above and beyond for us - from being flexible with timing to accommodate for weather, helping us out by delivering a gazebo (among other items) for our reception and of course delivering a beautiful, heartfelt ceremony with professionalism and warmth. She communicates well and is perfectly punctual. We would have no hesitation in recommending her for your nuptials. Thanks Amanda!” – Shaun and Bridget

“Amanda did the marriage ceremony for my husband and I on November 23rd, 2019. She was very patient with us as we had no idea what we were doing but she gently guided us through all the paperwork and the fun things that come with marriage. The ceremony was perfect! Amanda was amazing and made the ceremony so much fun. A lot of our friends said that it was one of the best ceremonies that they have been to because of the playful element that Amanda helped us create. Alex and I would happily recommend Amanda! She is professional, fun, accommodating and loves what she does. She also has a large range of wedding supplies to rent at a great price.” – Alex and Olivia

A Bit About Me
Hi there. I’m Amanda and I like long walks on the beach and candlelit dinners… ok a little too cliché, but those things do actually interest me! I decided to become a Marriage Celebrant after my partner and I were wed by a Shaman in the middle of ancient ruins just outside of Cusco, Peru. Though the proceedings were not legally binding – the excitement and intrigue of their local marriage customs captivated me and I wanted to be able to share this enjoyment with other couples.
Thus, it led me to study my Certificate 4 in Marriage Celebrancy and here I am today! Though you don’t need to speak Spanish and dress in colourful attire to be married by me, if that is something you think would suit you – then let’s do it! (full disclosure - my Spanish is very limited)
We more recently had our Australian wedding in March 2018 and it was much closer to the current Australian traditions of Baby’s Breath, Hessian and Lace – that too draws me in!! I really just do love a good nuptial!
I have always had a creative flair and have never been beaten by a challenge to create something unique and will not disappoint in creating a ceremony that reflects the love that two people share. I truly believe that being a Celebrant and helping couples with their special day is exactly what I am meant to be doing.
Lastly I would like to add, even more so with a few of my friends and family in same sex relationships- I am so happy that we have finally reached a time when we can all solemnise our love in the same way. Love is Love.
