Born in Ireland with qualifications in social work and training I have been a Celebrant here in Tropical north Queensland for many years now. Despite having lived most of my life in Australia, I am told I still have a slight Irish accent.
I have a good knowledge of Port Douglas and surrounds and location and services options which I can share with you, if you wish. Having worked in the challenging field of child protection in Melbourne, as you can imagine, I now enjoy immensely experiencing the joy and love that that couples express to each other on their wedding day and ensuring that the ceremony is all they could wish for.
Owing to my personal and professional background I have developed skills in relating warmly to people and speaking before groups in an engaging and inclusive manner. Many of the couples I marry and their guests comment positively on my ability to reach out to the audience and to maintain an appropriate balance between inserting humour yet maintaining the inherent dignity of the occasion.
Every couple is special and unique to me and so the design of each ceremony and script is also unique. I encourage you to include “your story” to make this a personal celebration. Drawing on your own ideas and with the aid of scripts, selections of readings, poetry, music, and working collaboratively with you, we can create a special ceremony which reflects your personal style, wishes and dreams.
When you book with me I will provide you with a Password so you can log on to my website and access formats, poems/readings and wording to draw inspiration from.
