At the end of June, after more than 12 years as a Commonwealth-registered civil celebrant, I will be retiring. However, because couples – except under special circumstances – are required to give one month’s notice before they can be married, I am effectively retired already.
I would like to thank all the couples whose marriages I solemnised – 107 in total – for the privilege of being your celebrant. Thank you for choosing me and for allowing me to share in the joy and magic of your wedding day.
I have many wonderful memories: from my very first wedding, in 2009 at Black Head Beach (Ashlie and Stu), to a small and intimate COVID-restricted wedding on Kincumber Mountain (Amelia and Ben). But the highlight was definitely in 2010 in the Hunter Valley, when I officiated at the wedding of my daughter, Naomi, and my now son-in-law, Mark.
Thank you to those who supported me, especially my technical assistant and roadie, Jonathan.
All the best,
