A love of people has led me to my role as a Civil Marriage Celebrant.
What better way to nurture this emotion, than to bring two people in love together for the commitment of marriage.
I am truly excited to now be able to offer my services to same-sex couples.
The commitment I make to you, is to bring a professional and sincere approach to creating your
A Celebration For Life ceremony.
I look forward to meeting you to begin our journey together to create a day filled with memories for a lifetime!

"Sue presided over our lovely but very low-key ceremony and was a pleasure to work with from the start. As all of the arrangements had to be made while my now husband and I were in Estonia, where we live, this entailed a lot of emails and research on Sue's part to make sure everything was OK with the marriage involving a citizen of another country. She kept us in the loop the whole time and made sure everything ran very smoothly, right through to the ceremony itself, which was short but sweet - and just the way we wanted it to be. Thanks, Sue, for caring so much about making our day as good as it could possibly be!" - Leino & Greg December 2018
Sue was the celebrant for our wedding on 21st April 2018. She is extremely organised and professional and did everything possible to ensure our ceremony was perfect. Sue is so warm and friendly and easy to get along with. So many guests commented on how wonderful she was. We are so happy that Sue was a part of our special day. Tara & Harley xxx
