Profile

Qualifications B.A., Dip. Ed. Justice of the Peace CHCMCEL401A Plan, conduct and review a Marriage Ceremony, CHCADMIN5C Work within the administrative protocols CHCCS5B Identify and address specific client needs WFSFNL407A Perform General Funeral Celebrancy SC02-N Conduct Naming Ceremony Commonwealth Registered Marriage Celebrant, A7523 Association Membership Australian Marriage Celebrants Incorp. Funeral Celebrants Association Australia Incorp. Appointed Bridal Industry Associate, Australian Bridal Industry Academy Affiliate member Women's Network Australia It is important to mark rites of passage in our lives and it is appropriate that we can have ceremonies that reflect our individuality. Through crafting ceremonies that are true to the person or persons involved , we can share our important milestones with family and friends in a way that is truthful, beautiful and memorable. I live in northern Sydney but enjoy travelling to all parts of Sydney to conduct ceremonies. I find it very interesting and rewarding to meet the people who are planning a wedding, a civil commitment, a naming, or any other ceremony. I love going to different places for weddings and other ceremonies; places which are special to the lives of those involved. I have been an English and History teacher, but over the years, have became more and more interested in the importance of ritual and ceremony in our lives and hence I became a civil marriage celebrant. I believe that I am a good listener and a good communicator and really enjoy working with couples to create ceremonies.

Kelvin & Abby , Bangarra Dance Theatre
Hi Elaine, It was certainly a magical night. Abby and I are very grateful for the wonderful ceremony you performed. Our wedding is still a huge talking point amongst our friends, and the photos are starting to come in from all different sources. I’ll be sure to email some through and share a link to our videos once they are posted on YouTube. Thanks you for helping to make it such a special and memorable occasion. Kelvin Robson & Abby Martin
Katherine and Scott , Peace Park, Oxford Falls
Dear Elaine, Thank you so much for your amazing job on our wedding day. You made our journey to the big day such a smooth and enjoyable one! We couldn’t have asked for a better celebrant. Much love and thanks, Kat and Scott
Robert & Rupinder , Royal Motor Yacht Club, Point Piper
Hi Elaine, The wedding was just great. We also agree the ceremony was simple yet it was exactly the concept we were after. Thank you so much for your help and advice. You very quickly understood what we were after and to offer agreement, support and advice where necessary. Rupinder and I will always look back on this period with feelings of complete happiness, obviously because it culminated in our wedding, but also because everything just happened so easily, so simply, without any stress or tension. It was a really serene and beautiful experience throughout. You helped with that! Thank you so much. Regards Robert & Rupinder
Gemma & Peter , The Turpentine Tree, Kurrajong
Hi Elaine, Just wanted to write a quick thank you for Saturday. We have had lots of lovely comments about the ceremony. We had a lovely day and it all went really well even with the weather. Thanks again for a lovely ceremony. Gemma & Pete
Mina and Mat , Sergeants Mess, Chowder Bay (near Mosman)
Hi Elaine, So sorry for taking a while to respond. Believe it or not we only just got back from our honeymoon yesterday!! We went to Peru and Fiji - it was absolutely incredible! Mat and I would like to thank you for a wonderful ceremony. You made us both feel so relaxed and at ease and did such a wonderful job on the day so thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Everyone said what a wonderful ceremony it was and we think it was absolutely perfect. :) Sergeants Mess were absolutely incredible from start to finish. They could not do enough for us on the day and their level of professionalism was amazing. All in all we really did have the best day of our lives. Thanks again Elaine! PS We have also received our formal certificate too so thanks for sorting.
Amanda and Carl Kibby , Clareville Beach
Hi Elaine, Hawaii was fantastic. We absolutely had a ball and relaxed quite a lot too. Thank you so much for being our celebrant. We were both really touched that you could do it for us. It made our ceremony really personal and we were thrilled with how it all ran. I have attached some photos.. We received out marriage certificate last week. Thank you for getting that organised so quickly. Thanks again Elaine. We would love to keep in touch. Amanda and Carl Kibby...
Marissa & Ben , Pirrama Park, Pyrmont
Hi Elaine, Thank you so much for all your help with our wedding day! We have been told by so many people what a wonderful celebrant you were and how brilliant the ceremony was and we certainly agree! So thank you very much! The wedding was glorious and despite a bit of wind, I think it was perfect! Ben and I had a great time on our wedding day, the ceremony and the reception was fantastic, I don't think we stopped smiling for a second! Thank you for the information on changing my name! Ben also said to say he is so sorry he did not get a chance to say goodbye to you on the day, he got caught up with a whirlwind of people! Thanks for everything again, we had an amazing day! Our ceremony was beautiful and we couldn't have been happier! Kind Regards, Marissa and Ben
Andrea & Aaron , Palm Beach
Hi Elaine Our wedding day was perfect and I couldn't have asked for better weather. You have been brilliant over the last 18 months and everything went so smoothly. I will send some photos when they come through. Thank you again for a perfect day. Many thanks Andrea & Aaron
Noemi & Anthony , Gunners Barracks, Mosman
Hi Elaine, Thanks a lot for your good wishes for our marriage. We have just returned from our honeymoon in Tahiti which was great, it's a beautiful place and we had a wonderful time!!! Anthony & I were very happy to have you as our celebrant. You made it very easy for us, we were very nervous about the whole process but you made us feel relaxed & comfortable. Thank you! We have received our wedding certificate already - looks very nice :) We will be sending you a picture of our wedding as soon as we get the photos from the photographers. Thanks again. Kind Regards, Noemi & Anthony
Vanessa & Wade , Home Wedding
Hi Elaine, I don’t know where to start to say thank you.. The day was great and the ceremony was even better. Everyone was saying how great you were and how intimate the ceremony was. A guest at the wedding is getting married next year and they have taken your number from so if you get a call.. Great. We received the marriage certificate on Tuesday, 3 days after the wedding, so there are no issues there. Wade is a man of few words around a lot of people but he said a little speech which was enough, he was just very happy. Once I receive the wedding photos from the photographer I will definitely send you a few over. It was a very low budget wedding but I have no complaints, it was just beautiful. Once the little one is born, I will send you a pic and let you know the sex hehe :) Wade and I will definitely never part we are best friends as well as husband and wife.. Our journey will be long and lived well. Kind Regards Vanessa and Wade Jackson

Frequently Asked Questions

How many witnesses do we need?

You need two witnesses over the age of 18 who have witnessed and understood your wedding ceremony. They can be relatives if you wish.

Can we have the style of ceremony that we want?

Of course you can! There are certain legal words that must be spoken and you and your witnesses must sign the register. For the rest of your ceremony, I will write an individual ceremony that is true to you and your wishes.

What is the first thing we should do once we have decided to get married?

Book your celebrant and your venue. When you meet with your celebrant, you will need to complete a Notice of Intended Marriage and lodge it with her. This must be done at least one month & one day, and no more than 18 months, before the date of your wedding.
