We had to look for a celebrant asap as my husband and I decided to cancel our ceremony at the Brisbane registry last minute. We came across Karen and Wow she made our whole process and experience smooth she respond very quickly. Karen went over and beyond from Start to finish for us and I loved that Karen Personalise our wedding ceremony there is nothing that Karen wouldn’t do. Karen is amazing with children we have 7 and you can imagine how much it will take to work with that many children they also loved her. Karen also has a rehearsal included which that was so helpful for our bridal party made it that extra easier for the lead up to the ceremony day. Karen is such a lovely person very easy to talk too I would highly recommend Karen. Thank you Karen for being apart of our special day

Hi Liz, Thank you so much for the wonderful review. I was honoured to be chosen to be your celebrant on your special day. The wedding was so beautiful and you have a very special family.

Thanks again for allowing me to be a part of your special day, Karen xx

When my husband and I first started planning our wedding, we decided on a church ceremony, as we didn’t want an OTT celebrant pretending to know us and our story after filling out a questionnaire. But then we found Karen. Our ceremony was exactly what we wanted - simple and elegant - and it didn’t take long meetings and answering lots of relationship questions to achieve. Karen accommodated our multiple date changes and other uncertainties created by covid and made the lead up as stress free as possible. If you want a genuine, professional and thoughtful celebrant, Karen is the perfect choice.
