Beverly Simmons-Hurtado

Your Celebrant and Ceremony
Email Celebrant


I am a passionate Celebrant that enjoys creating ceremonies that are meaningful to the Couple I meet. I love including and learning traditions, rituals & beliefs.

I love being a Celebrant, every ceremony is unique to the individual – incorporating their love story and including the family and friends that are special to them.

What makes me different? I love listening to my couple, especially knowing how they met, the proposal and what made them decide to be partners in life, my flexibility, caring nature and my ability to help & listen is why my couple chooses me.

With over 10 years of Celebrant experience, I have been privileged to be a part of many ceremonies such as weddings, renewal of vows, commitment, baby naming, memorials and funerals.

Let me help and guide you in planning your Ceremony.


We knew from the first meeting with Beverly that she was the right person to marry us. Professional, organized and her laid-back approach put us at ease in knowing all the details would be taken care of for us. As a civil marriage celebrant, Beverly allowed us the flexibility of writing our own vows so that the ceremony would be more meaningful to us. Beverly's sincerity, kindness and thoughtfulness helped to make our wedding day perfect and the most cherished day of our lives. We feel very fortunate that she was a part of our wedding and we offer the highest recommendation for her services.

The organiser at Captain Cook Cruses had recommended me “a lovely marriage celebrant that performs fabulous ceremonies.” and truly you were absolutely fabulous. From the very first enquiry to the big day nothing was a problem and you made us feel comfortable and relaxed about the whole process. You guided us through the whole process beforehand and on the day in such a fantastic manner that nothing could or did go wrong.
Being calm, composed and professional on the day helped us be relaxed and focus on each other knowing we were in safe hands. Our guests have commented about how polite, warm, friendly and well presented you were on the day. You built excellent relationships with both of us individually and as a couple.
Thank you so much for being our celebrant. We couldn't have asked for anyone better. It was a really unforgettable ceremony thanks to you. We will highly recommend you to everyone that we know.

It really is worthy praise, and throughout the months building up to our marriage, you took so much pressure off us through being so efficient and helpful. Thank you on behalf of us both, for making this run so smoothly. It has taken a lot of the stresses
away from us both.

we wanted to thank you for being involved in one of the most memorable days of our life. From the initial meetings to being able to assist, advise and accommodate us through the marriage process, we couldn't have been happier with your service and personal touch and approach. Nothing was too much effort and you brought us back on track when emotions took over. We have no hesitations recommending you to other potential brides we encounter in our line of work.

Johno & I would like to say a big thank you for such a beautiful wedding ceremony.
It is certainly an evening we will always treasure & remember with joy. The words for our vows were so personal (not a dry eye on board).
I would highly recommend you as a marriage celebrant, you know how to make everyone relaxed & to enjoy the ceremony. The personal vows you arranged for us really topped it off.
Thank you again for a day we will never forget.

When I (Maria) started corresponding with Beverly via email, I had my reservations.
But once I and my future husband met her, She made us feel comfortable. She is genuine, funny and very bubbly. She listens to what you want and she works with you and gives her honest opinion.
She makes sure on the day of your wedding that everything is ready and organised. She's fantastic!
I would not hesitate in recommending her services to anyone.
She is definitely one of a kind!
Thank you so much for making our wedding special!

Ronald and Maria Vergara Springfield House, Dural

We would like to thank you so much for a wonderful day. You handled our special day with total professionalism we could not be grateful for all the time and effort you put in and we would with out doubt refer your services to any one and will definitely renew our vows with next year.
