Award winning celebrant available for tropical weddings, intimate elopements, meaningful renewal of vows and commitment ceremonies in Port Douglas, Palm Cove, Cairns & The Daintree.

My name is Sarah Woods and I am a award winning professional marriage celebrant based in Port Douglas. I am vibrant, fun and relaxed and will help you bring your wedding day dreams to life. I am available from Port Douglas, Palm Cove, Cairns and the Daintree.
Your wedding day is a special day that you should enjoy to the fullest. Don’t spend it stressing about the details. As a professional marriage celebrant my goal is to give you the wedding ceremony you’ve always dreamed of.
From elopements, to small and intimate weddings with close friends and family, to wonderful wedding extravaganzas. We can create a wedding ceremony that you and your guests will delight in. I will help you to bring your dreams to life and guide you in creating a ceremony that is totally yours, reflecting your unique personality and style.
Available for weddings,elopements, renewal of vows, commitment and naming ceremonies from Port Douglas, Palm Cove to Cairns and The Daintree.


As your Marriage Celebrant I must see the following original documents:

  • Evidence of the date and place of birth of both of you.  This can be either birth certificate or a current overseas passport 
  • Current photo ID. This can be either a driver’s license or proof of age card
  • Evidence of any previous divorce or death of any spouse. If applicable this can be either the original divorce or death certificate of the previous spouse 
  • All your documents must be in English—or you must supply NAATI accredited translations if they are in another language
  • There must be 2 witnesses over the age of 18 at your wedding ceremony ( I can help arrange this)
  • An interpreter must be at your wedding ceremony if one or both partners cannot understand or speak English

Absolutely! I believe it is really important for couples to see and proof their ceremony before the special day for a number of reasons:

  • You know exactly what to expect on the day. You know how the ceremony flows, allowing you to relax and connect with each other.
  • You have the opportunity to make any changes you wish, so the ceremony really reflects you as a couple.
  • There will be no unwanted or awkward ‘surprises’ on the day.
  • I like to have a draft of your ceremony for you to review at least a month prior to your wedding ceremony, this will allow you plenty of time to personalise it further and add your own ideas to make your ceremony uniquely you! As a wedding celebrant I am well aware that on the week's and day's leading up to your wedding, couples are typically flat out, getting all the little details finalised so you don’t need me also looking over your shoulder. 

As I have sighted your original IDs and registered your marriage with BDM QLD, I am also authorised to submit a online request with Births, Deaths and Marriages QLD for a Official Marriage Certificate. BDM QLD then text/email you direct for payment and the Marriage Certificate is posted out to your nominated address. Then when you return from your honeymoon, you will have your hot off the press official marriage certificate ready and waiting for you to commence the change of name process.

Personally written vows are such a lovely way to incorporate your personalities into your wedding ceremony, I am able to provide you with inspiration and guidance and I am also more then happy to proof read them.

Public Liability and Professional Indemnity insurance.

I have a PA System that meets the legal requirements of the 2015 bandwidth changes.

The simple answer is NO, just like getting married is about choice and preference, so is what you include in your ceremony. This is where I come in and work with you to craft the ceremony that is about you and the celebration of your love and whatever that means to you. 

There is an amazing network of professional wedding celebrants in Port Douglas, Palm Cove and Cairns that will ensure that your wedding ceremony goes ahead.

Sarah was wonderful to work with from our first email. Sarah assisted us to create a lovely and memorable ceremony. Things did not go to plan leading up to our wedding but Sarah was more than accommodating to our changes. We had such terrible weather on our wedding day, yet Sarah remained calm which kept myself and my husband calm. Thanks so much Sarah!

Sarah was fantastic. I knew as soon as we first met with her we made the right choice. In the initial conversations she ran through everything that was required of us in detail so there was no suprises. She gave us so many tools to make sure we could create our own vowels without feeling pressured. She created the most amazing personalised ceremony for us based on the information we gave to her. She ran through everything in so much detail prior to the day which made us feel so much more at ease throughout. knowing what to expect and when. I couldn't recommend Sarah enough. We even had family and friends commenting on how great she was.

My husband Will and I had the pleasure of working with lovely Sarah for our wedding back in November 2022. From the initial enquiry to on the day, Sarah was so approachable and and assisted us along our journey of becoming husband and wife. We were planning from Nsw and she was based in qld but the entire process was so smooth and she replied to all of our enquires with a wealth of information and inspiration. Thank you Sarah for being such an incredible celebrant, you brought so much fun and energy to our ceremony and all we have is positive to send your way. If you want a celebrant to bring personality, warmth and ease for your big day, book Sarah! We loved having you be part of our wedding and thank you for everything! Love the Lords xx

Sarah was amazing from start to finish. Promptly replying to all our questions from the UK and advising us along the way of everything we needed for the day. We told her that we wanted to make the day simple and fun which she accommodated. We met up before the day to run through the ceremony which was really helpful. She conducted the ceremony with ease and professionalism and incorporated the humour. We had a great day and everything went smoothly. No nerves felt due to Sarah calming presence. Thank you Sarah we had such a good time as you can see by the photos. David and Ruth xx
