Marriage Celebrant

What have you always dreamed of for your wedding day?

What do you imagine in your wedding photos? Wineries, mountains, sunsets, ocean, rustic barns or your own backyard.

I love to help couples to identify and then fulfil their vision.

Are there cultural or spiritual inclusions that are meaningful to you? Let’s include them as part of your ceremony. There are lots of examples of how we can do this in the Marriage Resource Kit I send you once you book me, or inspire me with your ideas.

Every marriage ceremony I craft is individual, it’s all about you. My style is fun and relaxed yet meaningful in the right places. Writing your story and sharing it with your family and friends is one of my favourite parts of every wedding.

In Australia there are only 5 mandatory inclusions in a celebrant led wedding ceremony. Everything else is all about you.

Marriage Is Marriage, Love Is Love

I’m happy to say that I no longer perform Opposite Sex marriage or Same Sex marriage! I just do marriage … joyous besotted in love marriage … between two people who love each other and want to be together forever.
Since the introduction of Marriage Equality in 2017 it has been my great joy to legally marry many same sex couples who had been married in their hearts, often for quite some time.

Cheryl married us at Clovelly. It was a beautiful day made even more meaningful due to Cheryl’s personalised ceremony. She was great, very accommodating and personalised the whole service . Everyone commented on just how beautiful the ceremony was which was thanks to Cheryl. Would happily recommend her, particularly for same sex couples like us. Thank you Cheryl!

Respect for all people also tops my priority list. I’ve married people from many different cultures, religions and abilities. Young and not so young, spiritual or not…tell me about unique ideas from your background or lifestyle to make your ceremony even more special.

I’m committed to providing a safe and loving experience for all I work with.

Loads of Wedding Ceremony Ideas

In addition to that, when you book me as your celebrant I’ll provide you a portfolio of inspiration including poetry, readings, traditions and music to help you find your style. We’ll discuss your ideas and mine to create a ceremony as individual as you are.

Newcastle Marriage Celebrant

As a Newcastle based Marriage Celebrant I’ll give you ideas for the perfect ceremony location for you if you need inspiration. Outdoor ceremonies are lovely but they can have their challenges. (A great Plan B is a must)

On the day, I arrive early to make sure that every detail of the ceremony is managed and that the atmosphere is as relaxed as possible. I will be there to greet the wedding party as they arrive and help calm those pre-wedding jitters.

My attention to detail and focus is key so that your day is perfect for you.

Quality of Sound

The quality of sound during your ceremony is so important. My PA system is state of the art so that everyone can hear the ceremony clearly. Your selection of recorded music can also be streamed through my PA if you are not using live music.

Of course, you want the best images to record this very special event. I will liaise with your photographer and videographer to ensure that they get the images of the ceremony that are important to you and during the rehearsal we’ll discuss those special moments.

The legal registration of the marriage with Births, Deaths and Marriages is my responsibility, and I’ll make sure that it all happens seamlessly. I can also order your official marriage certificate, which you’ll need to change your name on documents, if requested.

Marriage Celebrant Fees

People often ask me “How much does a Marriage Celebrant cost?”

You’ll find that Marriage Celebrants fees are as individual as the Celebrant themselves and the wedding ceremonies we plan. I’m happy to discuss my pricing with you.

Please call me on 0437 895 328 to discuss your special day.

Words from the Couples

"To say that Cheryl is an incredible celebrant in an understatement. From the very moment my (now) husband and I met Cheryl we knew we wanted her to officiate our ceremony. The warmth and kindness she brings to her work is second to none. Her communication with us made the entire process so smooth and easy. We postponed our wedding twice and Cheryl was incredibly kind, flexible and accommodating which we so appreciated. Our wedding ceremony was held in the torrential rain and she was flexible and made a ceremony that was full of love and laughter. We had so many guests tell us how warm and great she was. It was clear that our ceremony meant a lot to her and it was full of love. Cheryl has become a great friend of ours and we definitely recommend booking with her!"


"Cheryl was our celebrant on Saturday 5 October 2019. We could not have asked for a more lovely and friendly person. Cheryl made the whole process an absolute breeze and created such a special and unique ceremony for myself and my husband. Thank you so much Cheryl, hoping we get to work with you again in the future xo"


"Where do I start from the moment Mitchell and I met Cheryl we new she was the one who would make our day so special. Cheryl is such and amazing caring woman and I feel so humbled and blessed to have crossed paths with her. Our wedding ceremony captured so many special moments from our life’s so far. The way you laughed and heckled with our son Jett throughout our ceremony will be the talk at the dinner table for years to come. We love you Cheryl thank you ❤️❤️"
