Creating joyful wedding ceremonies in Sydney

Sydney wedding celebrant, Cate Brockbank

I am a Sydney wedding celebrant, based in the Northern Beaches. Through the years I’ve been many things: a trapeze artiste and a fire dancer travelling Europe; an entertainers’ agent and event organiser.  Today, I share my role as a celebrant with caring for people as a registered nurse in a local hospital.


I bring all these life experiences to creating joyful wedding ceremonies that celebrate your life experiences as individuals and as a couple.


If you’re looking for a Sydney celebrant with an adventurous spirit, a depth of life experience and a sense of joy and fun, I would love to make your day as special as it can be — whether you want a classic ceremony, beach celebration, an unusual location or a theme of your choosing.

I welcome all nationalities and endeavour to include aspects of different cultures and traditions.

I welcome the LGBT community and look forward to legalizing your love for one another.

I specialize in marrying couples from overseas, especially elopement weddings in beautiful Sydney surroundings. 

Your day, your way

I’m here to use my experience as a wedding celebrant to guide you to a wedding ceremony as unique as you are. 


We’ll take your ideas, your backgrounds, your beliefs, and your history as a couple to craft a wedding ceremony that celebrates your story. I will research your culture and work traditions into your ceremony. I will help you with vows and readings, and take all your ideas and suggestions to create your ceremony, not mine.


You might find my background in event design and entertainment helpful if you’re looking for a sounding board for decorating, desiging and floral ideas. 

Let's talk about your day

As well as wedding ceremonies, I perform renewal of vows, child name days, and commitment ceremonies. I will also MC special parties and events. I will make a sad occasion a happy memory with a scattering of ashes ceremony for loved ones past.


Contact me for your obligation free consultation, a casual sit and chat over a cup of tea at my home office.
