My focus is to ensure your ceremony mirrors the magic of your dreams and love,
expressed in your chosen way to celebrate the new exciting step in your relationship
warmth, flair, gentle encouragement, professional guidance, inclusiveness, flexibility &
love of life
are qualities evident in my work.
I have been so fortunate to have had six years of celebrating weddings – all quite wonderful, and superbly different. I welcome exploring your creative ideas, be they for a comprehensive ceremony, as for a simpler one with perhaps more traditional preferences, I have many suggestions of readings, format and symbols for you to peruse. My current and future planning, always with the marrying couple, flourish on this wealth of experience.
Prior to my celebrant qualification, I have a long history in fields of education, including teaching English as a foreign language. I am experienced in working with interpreters, welcome contributions in language other than English where the couple so choose, and, of course, many wedding symbols have a cultural basis.
I have been privileged to work for ten years with parents of children with autism. My role was connecting them for peer support, as well as organising pampering days and fathers’/grandfathers’ evenings. Amazing. I have spoken with professional ease at a number of conferences, tutored groups of volunteers, including Chinese and Vietnamese teams.
I would welcome the opportunity to discuss yourceremony ideas, and arrange a, free of charge, initial meeting. This also gives you the opportunity to confirm that I am the ‘right ‘celebrant for you. Just call or email me.
"Wow! I can't thankyou enough for the beautiful ceremony you did for Stuart and me. I have the most wonderful memory of walking down the aisle and seeing you and knowing that I was about to get married. Thankyou so much for all your time and effort and for your beautiful words on the day. "Katie Thompson 08/03/2019 Barefoot on the beach, Kangaroo Island, S.A.
"Thanks for the beautiful draft of our ceremony, Pauline. It's inspiring and we are both grateful that you have so easily captured the tone of it, as we personally would like it to be.
Your suggestion of the addition of Gaelic when giving the rings is perfect."
"Thankyou so much for being part of our magical wedding celebration. You were so lovely, kind and organised from the start.
You did a fantastic job and we couldn't have asked for a better celebrant."
