Specialising in designing warm & loving beautiful Civil Wedding Ceremonies & Christian Wedding Ceremonies as a Religious Marriage Celebrant.

Voted one of the top Queensland Wedding Celebrants by her brides and grooms in 2020, 2019, 2018 and 2017 with scores of 99% & 98% receiving finalist awards by the Australian Bridal Industry Academy - ABIA. A warm hello and thank you for visiting my page. I received my registration as a Marriage Celebrant in 2008. Over the ensuring years I have had the absolute joy and honour of sharing happiness, love and celebration with so many beautiful brides and grooms bringing with it warmth, caring, kindness and friendship - a richness beyond measure. How do I assist couples in designing the ceremony of their dreams! I offer ideas, inspiration and guidance to alleviate any anxiety and stress as I help couples create the perfect Wedding Ceremony that totally reflects their beliefs and values and one they will both cherish and remember with happiness in the years to come. Whether the wedding is to be simple or elegant, relaxed by the beach, or in a formal setting, each has its own individual charm. My ceremonies are personally designed to suit requirements. Couples may be planning on having a Christian Wedding Ceremony. I am able to assist with this type of ceremony also. Because of the significance of the occasion my ceremonies are conducted with a certain formality and dignity, yet with warmth, sincerity and friendliness. I invite you to read through my website for further information. My website also outlines information regarding other ceremonies I present.   I can be contacted via my website or on 0418986062 



Questions and Answers

What side are we supposed to stand on during the ceremony?

Sandra Hill

If you're in a church and are facing the altar, it is usual for the bride to stand on the left side and the groom on the right. Guests should follow suit, sitting on the side of whoever they know best or are related to.  Mutual friends can sit on the side that has fewer people.  If your wedding is not held in a church you can choose to stand on either side.  If the bride chooses the traditional left hand side facing the front some brides prefer their family to sit on the right hand side so that they have full view of the bride and the groom's family on the left so they also have full view of the groom.

Who lifts my veil?

Sandra Hill

The rules have been rewritten with modern veil styles.  If you have a traditional veil style that is draped over your face, there are two options.  Your father can lift your veil when he gives you away, 'revealing' you   to the groom.  The other option is for the groom to lift your veil just before the kiss.

Where do I put my engagement ring during the ceremony?

Sandra Hill

You can have someone hold it for you or you can wear your engagement ring on your right hand.  If you want to wear it for your reception you can put it on after the ceremony.

Is there an appropriate way to kiss at the ceremony?

Sandra Hill

Your first kiss as a married couple doesn't have to be a peck. Do what comes naturally, as long as it doesn't involve visible tongue and last more than a few seconds.

When should I take off my veil after the ceremony?

Sandra Hill

There are two optimal times to take off your veil.  While it is perfectly okay to wear your veil for the entire reception the first option is after the ceremony (ask your hairstylist to show your bridesmaid how to do this without messing up your hairstyle).  The second option is after the first dance while your guests are eating. Once you have taken your veil off you can take it to your bridal suite or have it 'decorate' your chair.

Sandra was wonderful, she's a really warm person and told you everything you needed to know, organised all the legal processes and had very little to worry about! She was really good at the ceremony as well and also always took on board all of our comments and the things we wanted to say which was good as well. We couldn't have asked for a better person for our day!

Sandra was a very warm and gentle marriage celebrant. She was so helpful for Troy and myself for our big day. The ceremony was beautifully presented and I had so many comments from family members and friends, about how breezy things were. It was such a beautiful day and we were so thankful to have Sandra as our celebrant. She helped us to understand every part of the ceremony and allowed us so much freedom. She also offered religious sections for our ceremony which was something we were really hoping for when initially planning our ceremony. She even took on our wedding on a fairly short notice. We loved every second and we hope Sandra is doing well.

Our gratitude for Sandra is beyond words. She is the best celebrant to work with from beginning to end. At the very first meeting, we knew she is the one we have been looking for. Her professionalism and dedication was so inspring, and she made the whole process such a breeze. She listened closely to our ideas and provided a wealth of information and great suggestions. Our wedding wouldn't be as perfect without her. We were absolutely blessed to have her on our special day. Love you so much Sandra.💗💗💗 We highly recommend Sandra to anyone who is looking for a genuinely perfect wedding celebrant.

Sandra was so lovely and helpful when it came to choosing how we wanted our ceremony. She provided us with such confidence and she truly helped my husband and I on our day to stay calm as we felt completely at ease with having Sandra there. Sandra is great with communicating and can answer all questions promptly. She has such a loving and friendly personality that she just feels like someone you have known for years. From our first meeting we knew we had picked the right celebrant.

It was a joy to have Sandra share our day with us. She is so lovely and caring and her services are put together with such thought to every detail. I cannot recommend Sandra highly enough. Thankyou Sandra for being with us on our special day.

Thank you Sandra for delivering such a beautiful ceremony and making our wedding preparation so much easier. She was kind and genuine, and made everyone within the ceremony feel included and valued. As a Christian couple who wanted to share our faith in our wedding we really wanted to find a celebrant who had the same values of faith. We think we could not have found a better celebrant than Sandra! Thank you Sandra for your service and time. God Bless you. James and Tran

Sandra was a wonderful celebrant. We could not have picked a more genuine, friendly and kind lady than Sandra, and we will forever remember the day and the lovely memories she helped create, when marrying us. I remember back to our first meeting over tea and cake and we felt immediately as ease in her presence. We could sense the genuine happiness for us and knew that she would be able to guide us through the ceremony. All our friends and families, both present and in various locations across the globe felt included in the ceremony, thanks to Sandra.

Testimonial for Sandra Hill, Celebrant Our Wedding was an amazing and beautiful experience as a result of Sandra Hill, our preferred Marriage Celebrant. At our initial wedding consultation, Sandra made us both feel very welcome. She was happy to work with us, in accordance with our Buddhist beliefs. Most importantly, Sandra collaborated with the Centre’s Venerable Lozang Trin-la for a seamless and perfect Ceremony. Throughout the whole process, Sandra was very patient, professional particularly open to our ideas. Sandra is naturally calm and this eased our pre-wedding nerves. We appreciated her spirituality. At the conclusion of our intimate ceremony, Sandra presented us with our Wedding Vows. Her kind gesture has made our day even more special and memorable We highly recommend our wonderful celebrant, Sandra Hill to those considering a special, and sincere Wedding Ceremony. Sandra is a kind, respectful and thoroughly genuine person. Sooty and Robert Pitt 04.07.2021

Sandra is great to deal with, communicates promptly and is very helpful. She did an amazing job on the day and was an absolute joy to deal with.

I cannot recommend Sandra enough! She is an incredibly friendly, genuine and kind person who works hard to create the vision of the couple. In emails/meetings and even on the big day, Sandra was enthusiastic, warm and supportive-a big bonus for a stressed bride. Sandra was flexible during COVID and very generous (even finding us a place to hold our rehearsal when our venue couldn't). When it came to writing the ceremony and choosing vows/readings, Sandra had so many options that made the decision making process so easy and less overwhelming. I will be recommending Sandra to anyone getting married as I know she will make their day incredible!

Sandra is the best of the best. The year of 2020 was difficult for many many couples, including us. We approached to her in the Jan 2020 for the wedding in May, but everything changed due to COVID and a lot of thing became uncertained, the only thing we sure about is that Sandra will always be there for help. She is an amazing lovely caring person who gave us a beautiful wedding ceremony. She let us choose how do we want the ceremony run and also kindly gave us a lot of suggestions and informations. We feel very comfortable to talk to her from the very beginning to the end. She is very responsible and full of passion. On my wedding day, she arrived one hour earlier to make sure everything was well prepared. I cannot express how apprecaited I am for having her as my wedding celebrant.

Absolutely amazing. Sandra went above and beyond our expectations to give us an amazing day. Her care and support leading up to the day and on the day itself was so wonderful. I Would recommend Sandra to all.

We were blessed to meet you Sandra and wouldn't have chosen anybody else to marry us, the warmth and love you showed us we will never forget and we will never forget you, thank you Sandra ❤

Sandra was wonderful and lovely to work with especially during COVID19. Our wedding had to be cancelled due to Government restrictions so we ended up doing a small backyard wedding. Sandra came through and helped customise our ceremony to fit what we needed. She also offered to do another renewal of vows ceremony for us when we can get around to doing a bigger celebration. Highly recommend Sandra. She’s kind, flexible and very easy to communicate with.
