A Little about me.
My name is Jo Fabro - I am 36 years old.
I am a celebrant based in Sydney and have been working in the industry for the past five years. I became a celebrant at the request of some good mates, who wanted to have a friend to marry them, rather than a stranger. They thought of me (I am a jazz singer by trade, so I am comfortable in front of a crowd) and I jumped at the chance to be able to do such a special thing for them and to be able to provide them with a ceremony that was a bit more personal for their special day.
It was a huge undertaking and is not something that is an option for most people, and with that in mind, I try to bring that ethos to my work now. I get to know my clients and I give them the ceremony that THEY want. It's all about you guys. I personalise each ceremony, composing it specifically for each couple. We can add as much of the traditional or the irreverent as you want, and we always try to have a few laughs.
Most excitingly, since the legalisation of same-sex marriage, I have been extremely lucky to celebrate the weddings of some really good friends who have waited a long time to get married, as well as a number of same-sex couples that I have met along the way.
I love what I do and I feel incredibly lucky to be able to do it. I hope that I can be a part of your celebration.
