Specialising in incorporating pets and animals into your ceremony.

Congratulations, you have finally met that one special person that you can love as much as you love your animals. I know how challenging this can be and understand that you want your cherished pets to be just as much a part of your ceremony as yourself and your partner.  

I have been conducting marriages, civil ceremonies, naming ceremonies and funerals since 2005. Each celebration unique to the people involved, I tailer your day to suit yourself, any other significant humans and your animals. I have a passion for making your moments truly unique and special and I enjoy working closely with my clients to ensure your day is one with memories that will last a lifetime. 

After struggling to find a celebrant that would allow my beloved dogs to have a part in my husband and my wedding, I decided to become a celebrant. There are many things that make your occasion special and having a celebrant that understands animals and allows them to play a role in your day is pivotal in the enjoyable and successful outcome of your celebration.

As an animal lover, I have experience with dogs, horses, birds, reptiles – including pythons – and sheep.  Location is not an issue as I have conducted celebrations in Perth, Tasmania, Canberra, The Southern Highlands and The South Coast. 

I look forward to meeting with you and helping you design a celebration that is perfect for yourself and your animal companions.

Ladies, it was my absolute honour to be involved in your marriage. The whole experience was such a pleasure!

We created the ceremony ourselves based on her guidelines and gave us ideas on little things to change. She was really good and was there early to organise everything! She made things really easy on the day! With writing our vows I had no idea where to start and she gave me a few starting points!

Hayley and Dan, thanks for letting me share in your special day. We survived the winter weather and the ceremony was great. The kids really provided some entertainment on the day!

Joelene was a delight to work with. She was happy to come to us and meet at coffee and at our home to organise the paperwork and talk us through the ceremony. She gave us fantastic resources to work with in developing our vows, speeches and writing the ceremony. She put together a little speech summarising our relationship for the day and her breadth of experience meant that she was able to answer all of our left of field questions and provide suggestions. She put us at ease on the day and coordinated the timing of the ceremony perfectly. We would highly recommend Joelene!

Thanks Beth. It was a joy to be part of your wedding and seeing the involvement of both of your families for your big day. I know you will continue that love story that Brett Eldredge sang about as you walked down the aisle.

Joelene was fantastic. She met with us when we needed things explained in the lead up to the wedding and explained everything is easy to understand terms. On the day she arrived early to make sure everything was working and set up and ensured our ceremony ran smoothly. I would recomend Joelene to anyone.
