Hi ! It's a funny thing when you go to write about yourself 'cos you wonder what will be of interest to others ,what will give a picture of who you are and the kind of ceremony you will create.
So here goes ....I'm just going to give you a general overview of things I've done, places I've been and maybe you'll feel a connection and choose me to be the one to work with you to create that special Celebration you are embarking on.
I grew up in Perth and studied in the area of education. After a year of exploring the world I moved across to the Cape Naturaliste area where I have resided on and off for 30 years. I am so at home in the S-W that I have made it my base for my adult life and though I have traveled extensively and even lived in other parts of Australia and overseas, I always end up back on the S-W coast.
Being here for so long I have seen the wedding industry grow and develop and have worked indirectly and directly within it .
Twenty years ago, when I got married down here, it was almost impossible to find a venue that could seat 60+ guests other than Caves House .There was 1 celebrant authorized to marry and flowers etc were brought from Perth. It was at this point I looked into becoming an Events Organizer but the market wasn't ready for that. Most brides imported all their suppliers from Perth including hairdressers, makeup artists, photographers and even the caterers. How things have changed!!
Hospitality has been a natural occupation for me as not only do I love food but also a good party!
Between bringing up 2 boys I continued to teach and work locally in the hospitality industry with stints of travelling in between.
In 2011 I gave up these other pursuits to train and register as a civil celebrant.
I love it and have found every aspect of the position to be rewarding whether it is creating a funeral service, a wedding or any of the other occasions one might celebrate.
I am so fortunate to have found the perfect occupation.
Please peruse my web site and I trust you will find information that will help to make your Celebration the perfect event!
