I’m a queer marriage celebrant living in the Inner West with my family of 4 girls (5 if you count our dog Fraggle) and also our very important 'man of the house', Mr Cat Stevens. My goal is to create a safe space for all my couples regardless of their gender, and who they are choosing to marry. As well as my love for weddings, pets and colouring my hair pink, I really enjoy an adventure. So I am always willing to travel outside of the Inner West, to other parts of Australia and world-wide.

April 2024

Our wedding was so much more special for having Liz be a part of it. She knew exactly how we wanted things to look, even if we didn't always have the words to describe it, and thanks to her our ceremony was joyous, memorable, and heartfelt. Liz made sure we didn't have to worry about anything to do with the ceremony - she had everything under control and absolutely nailed the vibe we were after. All our friends and family were thoroughly impressed and said she was a perfect match for us. When we first met Liz we didn't know quite what we wanted our wedding to look like, especially with limited experiences with same-sex weddings. Liz's warmth, humour and confidence immediately won us over and she gave us the confidence to have the ceremony that suited us perfectly. Her organisation skills meant we were never stressed about missing anything in the planning phase, and she was a constant source of inspiration for how we could tailor the event to suit our vision. We can't recommend Liz enough. She has a real talent for getting to know the couples she works with, to make sure their special day is a reflection of their unique relationship.

Thank you so much, I loved getting to know the 2 of you! Such wonderful celebration

April 2024

Liz made the whole process easy. We felt assured that all the legal bits were organised as well as expertly guiding a friend to jointly do the ceremony together. Which is no small thing to prepare someone else and give them the confidence to do an amazing job. Liz clearly communicated the ins and outs of the day as well making it feel incredibly personal to us. We had such a good time and everything felt true to us and in no small part had to do with Liz. Liz's organising with our catering/event management worked seamlessly and the ceremony went so smoothly. Down to the music and the small touches of our vows all bound together made for the loveliest keepsakes of the day. We'd recommend Liz to anyone!

We booked Liz with JustMarried for our elopement and she was so perfect--kind, thoughtful, knowledgable and sweet. She helped us through the whole process and it was like having your best friend perform your ceremony. We couldn't recommend her highly enough.
