Fiona's warm bubbly personality and years of experience creating beautiful weddings, brings the best elements of expertise to your ceremony. I'm a passionate celebrant and wedding planner! I love discussing weddings. I will share my knowledge with you to ensure you plan and create the ceremony that best reflects you and your partner. Get in touch and I'll get right back to you!

Thank you for reaching out!  I'm an easy going, modern professional celebrant. 

I will perform your ceremony and tell your love story in an authentic fun manner bringing the right vibe to make this very special moment memorable for all the right reasons!  More important, keeping it stress free!   

My approach is well crafted and my ceremonies are engaging.  Not only will you love this experience but so will your guests!  

I pay attention to all details.  From writing your story of how you met and your journey that's brought you to this exciting day, to guiding you through writing your vows.  

I will guide you through all the required legal documentation and lodge everything for you.    

I create a fun atmosphere as I host your wedding ceremony.  

I provide a top-quality wireless Bluetooth PA system with microphones ensuring everyone will hear you clearly.   

Included in my packages is a professional sound technician to operate the PA system.  They will play your selected music and monitor the volume of your microphones so the voice levels are perfect.  

Having previously been an Event Manager for 10 plus years, I developed relationships with many suppliers designing and managing all sorts of events. Weddings are always my favourite!

Throughout our journey together I can share ideas with you and we can explore how to find the perfect ceremony and reception venue to reflect the right fit for you and your budget.  

On your wedding day you can rely on me to act on your behalf as I look after any challenge that may arise, knowing I have your best interest at heart. Your enjoyment is my number one priority! 

I am grateful to do what I love and I get to meet wonderful people along the way.    

I look forward to hearing from you! 

Our next step is to meet up for a no obligation chat over a coffee ... then ultimately, I get to work with you both and get you married!

Do I need a rehearsal?

Fiona Winwood Marriage Celebrant

A wedding ceremony rehearsal helps to fine tune and clarify the ‘when, where and why’ for all parties invloved. It is preferable that all people participating in the wedding ceremony attend the rehearsal if they are in town at the time – this includes the wedding attendants, readers, those involved in the giving away and the person you have chosen to operate your recorded music (if applicable). The rehearsal ideally takes place during the week before the wedding.

What are the legal requirements to be married in Australia?

Fiona Winwood Marriage Celebrant

The following legal requirements must be met for a marriage conducted by a registered marriage celebrant to be considered legal in Australia:

  • with the exception of Section 12 from The Marriage Act 1961, both parties must be at least 18 years of age
  • you are required to have two witnesses to the ceremony who are at least 18 years of age to sign the certificates and register
  • you must sign a declaration to state that there are no legal impediments to the marriage e.g. being married to someone else, the bride and groom being too closely related etc.
  • a Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM) must be lodged with your celebrant no less than one month and no earlier than 18 months before your ceremony

Fiona stepped in as our celebrant two days before our wedding after our original celebrant contacted COVID. Fiona was incredible. She was lovely, kind, relaxed and professional so, despite the stressful situation, we were immediately at ease and knew we were in great hands. She is so organised that we did not have to worry about a thing. She gave our ceremony her special touch and made it perfect. We were so pleased to have her marry us!

Fiona Winwood Marriage Celebrant  

Thank you for your kind words Jesse and Lisa. After reading what had been written by the other celebrant I must say it certainly was an upgrade! and I was extremely happy to oblige.

22 Feb 2022

Fiona was professional from start to finish. Very organised, high attention to detail and warm and friendly. She was part of what made our elopement on the beach very special. She showed care and compassion which meant a lot. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend her services!

Fiona Winwood Marriage Celebrant  

Thank you so much Natalie and Sascha, it was so lovely down on the beach at Willunga for your very intimate ceremony.

Fiona Winwood! What can I say. This woman is brilliant. From the very beginning she guides us through the marriage process effortlessly. The words spoken at our ceremony where completely fitting to us and she thought of everything. Shouting out and welcoming our interstate guests on live stream. Introducing us to a sand ceremony to blend our families, even putting up with my nervous and hard to deal with husband to be the night before out our rehearsals. We love Fiona and it’s sad that our time with her has come to an end as we are married now. Fiona. Is the celebrant for you. She does it all!

Fiona Winwood Marriage Celebrant  

Thank you! so much Peta for your kind words. It was a delight to work with you both. I totally understood Chris' nerves at rehearsal - nothing fazes me. Your sand ceremony was beautiful blending your two young families as one large family was a delight to make happen for you all!

6 Mar 2022

Fiona was brilliant! Did everything we asked for and made our day special and unique to us. As members of the LGBT community we felt very comfortable and represented with Fiona marrying us!

Fiona was the perfect match for us. She made the day so easy and catch ups were great. She was fun and friendly so happy

We had so much fun putting together your special ceremony, putting in the passion along the way. We captured all the meaningful moments and more! Always open and willing to go beyond expectations for my couples that like to be original and have some fun.

We had Fiona as our celebrant for our wedding and she did not disappoint. She made everything super easy and hassle free, including explaining all the legal processes. She made our ceremony exactly how we wanted it, it reflected the kind of people we are perfectly. She radiated happiness for us and we had the best wedding day we could have ever asked for.

Fiona Winwood Marriage Celebrant  

I'm very grateful to you both for choosing me; we connected instantly and I knew your ceremony was going to be great blend of so many emotions and true happiness. You and Adam were a dream to work with as I crafted your ceremony, as promised no awkward moments just a natural flow of the most heartfelt words all about you two xx

Fiona was absolutely amazing! She made us feel so comfortable and like we’d known her for years! We couldn’t recommend her enough.

I  had an instant connection with Fiona over the phone, and looked no further after our first meeting. She is beyond professional and incredibly down to earth.  Fiona was fantastic with communication and was patient with my endless questions. It was a real privilege to have her on our very special day. Thank you so very much Fiona for all your care and attention 😊❤

Fiona Winwood Marriage Celebrant

Fiona, you are amazing. Thankyou so much for all the effort you put in leading up to the day. With you there I knew everything would run smoothly and that is exactly what happened. You were so professional and made the day an absolute joy. Everyone at the wedding felt welcomed into the new family we were creating. I also saw so many tears that day from all the beautiful words you said about us. Could not recommend more highly Fiona. You were incredible. Thankyou love adam and jaclyn

Fiona Winwood Marriage Celebrant  

Thank you Jac, I knew from our first meeting I was going to be not only your Celebrant but your wingman, ensuring absolutely everything flowed naturally like magic and fair bit of wow factor!

Fiona was the icing on our cake, she felt like a family member and will forever be apart of our memory of “the best day ever”

Fiona Winwood Marriage Celebrant  

Putting together your surprise wedding was so much fun! I must congratulate you and Tyler for keeping it a BIG secret from everyone you know; that would have been very difficult! To be that special person on one of the most important days in your lives, for me was a gift!

28 Nov 2020

Fiona is really amazing at what she does. Both my wife and I were feeling overwhelmed in the lead up to our wedding and Fiona was really good at guiding us whilst letting us make the wedding our own. She kindly offered for us to call her for any questions and we ended up meeting face to face a few times before the wedding. My wife is Mexican and all her family were overseas. Fiona was flexible in tailoring our wedding to being both ‘regular’ but also live-streamed and videocalled all at the same time. She was also very proactive about making our Mexican family feel included and bringing some Mexican culture and words to the ceremony. She was calm and supportive throughout and we really couldn’t recommend her enough.

Fiona Winwood Marriage Celebrant  

It was an absolute joy to marry you and Mon, coming from overseas myself and having all of my family not here Adelaide I totally get how important it is to bring them with us during your ceremony; as you marry the love of your life. I genuinely care and are a true support person to all my couples, anyway I can assist I most certainly will.
