Why Choose Susie As Your Marriage Celebrant

  • Personalization and Flexibility

    Your wedding day should be a reflection of your personalities and love for each other.  I firmly believe in creating unique, personalized ceremonies that incorporate your individual preferences, cultural traditions, and personal beliefs.  I will take the time to get to know you both, allowing me to create a bespoke ceremony that is both meaningful and memorable.

    Whether you desire a traditional ceremony or something more contemporary, I am highly flexible in adapting to your vision, so long as it meets all of the legal requirements that is required by the Attorney General’s Department.

  • Calm and Professional Presence

    On your wedding day, it’s important to have a celebrant who can provide a calm and reassuring presence.  My experience as a celebrant since 2013 has equipped me with the skills to handle various situations gracefully and professionally.

    From addressing any last-minute changes to ensuring the smooth flow of the ceremony, I will take care of the intricate details, so that you can fully immerse yourselves in the joy of the moment.

  • Customization and Support

    Planning a wedding can feel daunting and overwhelming at times, but I am here to guide you through the entire ceremony process.  From our initial meeting to the ceremony itself, I will be by your side, providing support, guidance, and inspiration.  Whether you’re seeking assistance with writing your own vows, selecting readings or poems, or exploring unique ceremony ideas, I will provide a wealth of resources and creative suggestions to make your celebration truly one-of-a-kind.

    I have created an e-booklet called “Shine your Light” that is a compilation of poems, and traditional and contemporary vows.  This e-booklet is available to you as my client and can be used for the basis of creating your Personal Vows.

  • Excellent Communication Skills

    Clear, honest and open communication is key to a successful partnership between a celebrant and a couple.  I pride myself on my ability to communicate effectively, promptly responding to your queries and addressing any concerns you may have.

    Throughout the planning process, I will keep you informed about the legal requirements, guide you through the necessary paperwork, and ensure that after our rehearsal meet, you will have a comprehensive understanding of the ceremony timeline.

  • Passion for Creating Meaningful Ceremonies

    Above all, I have a deep passion for creating meaningful and heartfelt ceremonies that celebrate love and unity.  I believe that your wedding day should be a reflection of your unique journey, and a celebration of the love you share, witnessed on your special day, by your family and friends.

    With enthusiasm and dedication, I will create a ceremony that not only resonates with you, but also touches the hearts of your loved ones witnessing this special moment.

  • Attention to Detail

    Your ceremony is a collection of cherished moments, and I take pride in ensuring every detail is thoughtfully considered. From the arrangement of symbolic elements to the timing of poignant readings, I approach each aspect with meticulous care.

    Additionally, I understand that plans may evolve, and unexpected changes can occur. My adaptability allows me to seamlessly incorporate any adjustments, ensuring that your ceremony flows smoothly, regardless of the circumstances.

    Your peace of mind is my priority, and I am committed to creating a ceremony that surpasses your expectations, even in the face of unforeseen changes.

Happy Clients

We were fortunate enough to have Susie as Celebrant at our wedding. As an older couple we really didn’t want all the traditional bells and whistles- more a quiet, small loving ceremony in our own beautiful garden.

Susie listened to us, assisted us with the wording of our commitment, guided us through the logistics, and went out of her way to ensure our special day was full of meaning. We have nothing but praise and respect for this talented lady!

Susie is such a vibrant, uplifting and bubbly person.

She gave our wedding that special touch and spark that only Susie can do.

Definitely made us feel at ease and had everything organised and ready to go.

Would highly recommend her!!
