What I can do for you & Price Packages 2019

 

You have met your perfect partner, the person you want to share the rest of your life with.

Perhaps you have been with them for many years or you have met and fallen in love over the past few months or so. 

Whether you are combining your families together or starting anew. If you are born in Australia or bring a different culture to the community, I am here to help guide you in your desires to create the celebration of your lives as a couple.

 

I offer a range of options & price packages:

I research cultures and traditions to suit your wishes

I will give you choices of vows, poems, readings and more to help create a flowing ceremony.

Involving customs, religions, spiritual beliefs or no believe at all.

I have an adventurous spirit and am happy to listen to interesting ideas like SCUBA weddings, parachute or Hot Air Ballooning.  Boat, Beach and Bush settings,  sunrise or sunset. 

 

With a background in event design & entertainment I have the knowledge and skill to help you with decoration ideas and the creativity of your event. I have a few props that may help and reduce the costs elsewhere for example and arch or and arbour. 

 

I endeavour to keep you calm and relaxed all the way through your preparation and the ceremony, so all you have to worry about is yourselves. 

I keep it fun and professional

Reliable and Positive

I am a writer and a poet and will turn your tale into a story for your friends to enjoy.

Years of experience allow me to advise on certain aspects you may be interested in. 

Mostly, I find a way to make any of your desires possible and always believe in the ‘glass half FULL’ approach to life.

Allow me to be your guide in making your day, your way.
