“Sally was warm, loving and comforting. She worked with us to create a unique wedding ceremony just for us. She went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. She contacted us leading up to the day and checked in, we were never left wondering. When things didn’t run smoothly on the day (the weather took a turn for the worse), she was literally the calm in the storm. Absolutely amazing!! Hands down will recommend Sally 1000 times over!!!” – Julie + Adrian

“TEN OUT OF FIVE STARS!! We feel so very lucky to have found Sally and been married by her! She brought incredible warmth and calm to the organisation of our micro-wedding. Although we opted for the simplest ceremony, Sally added lovely personal touches that made all seven of our guests feel welcome – and made the two of us feel like the genuine heart of our story was being shared. At Sally’s insightful suggestion, we wrote love letters to each other rather than saying our vows, and now these letters are two of our most treasured mementoes of the day. All of our guests thought Sally was wonderful. We couldn’t have asked for more and would wholeheartedly recommend Sally to anyone organising their wedding! Thanks so much, Sal!.” – Kelly & Brent



Hi I'm Sal! I believe that Love makes the World go around... so I became a Celebrant to be Love's champion and celebrate it! I also believe in the power of Storytelling. Stories can bring us together. Quite simply – they remind us how to FEEL. When we get those goosebumps as we’re captivated by a beautiful story of love, of life, or of loss, we instantly become connected, to ourselves and each other. My job as your Celebrant, is to Tell Your Story, helping create memories to last a lifetime.

I am so glad we had the lovely Sally as our marriage celebrant, as she brought a warmth and positive energy to our ceremony and made it feel just how we had hoped. Sally told our story in such a way that made everyone in the room joyful and really feel the love ❤️ Her guided meditation that we asked for at the start of our ceremony calmed our nerves but also was spoken highly of by our guests. Thank you Sally, we are grateful that you were part of our special day!

Sally is an amazing, friendly person who brings a lot of great energy. She was helpful and informative throughout the whole process, answering any and all questions we had about getting married as well as helping us pick a spot for the big day. Though our wedding was very small, Sally helped us every step of the way. I'm glad we found and chose her!

Beautiful. That is the only word to describe the ceremony that Sal created for my us. Thank you, Sal, for telling our story in such a beautiful way. We have had so many of our guests say how magical and moving the ceremony was, and we can't thank Sal enough for creating a ceremony that was everything we could have imagined and more.

Sal is a wonderful wedding celebrant! She made the whole process so easy from start to finish. She went above and beyond to make sure the day was exactly as we hoped. Besides being an incredible celebrant, she is generally a gorgeous person. I can’t recommend Sal enough.

Sally was a very instrumental and meaningful part of our wedding. She is so warm, calming & just very genuine, and I can honestly say it feels like we have known her for our whole lives. Every interaction with Sally was full of laughs and of great connection as we all got to know each other and about my husband and I’s love story. Our ceremony was perfectly “us”, keeping true to the beautiful words she had written that we were able to view and customise in advance. The ceremony was full of both infectious laughs and heartfelt tears - even from the guests who I never thought would cry!! To top all of this off, Sally even surprised my husband and I with a personalised message that payed tribute to our favourite show (The Simpsons) which we still laugh and smile about together today. Thank you

I am a terrible public speaker. How can I get ready for my wedding ceremony?

Hi there. Was hoping for some advice on how to tackle ceremony nerves so I can get through my vows. I really want to write my own vows but have always been terrible at speaking in front of crowds. What can I do ahead of time and on the day?

The Mindful Celebrant

Hi lovely!

There are so many ways to work on this - but the best way is to believe in yourself and the intention you have.

If your intention is to write some beautiful, meaningful and heartfelt Vows for your partner, then go for it!

But reading them in front of everyone is another matter entirely. Sometimes, I suggest that couples write their personal Vows to each other as a special letter, and exchange these letters during the Ceremony. They can then be read together at a later time. (Later in the evening during a quiet moment, the next day, or even on your 1st Wedding Anniversary).

You will need to say your 'Legal Vows' on the day no matter what - your full names, with the legal wording in place to say that you take ..... to be your lawful wedded Husband/Wife/Partner.

When it comes to nerves here are some of my tips: - 

- Let your Celebrant help you to write your Vows (for example I have an e-guide for how to write Personal Vows to one another).

- Be YOU! Just say what's in your heart!

- Practice reading them to yourself - in the car, before bed, when you have a quiet moment.

- Have a rehearsal! Not to read the Vows, but just so that you can feel more prepared for the whole Ceremony (if that's your jam)!

- On the day, I often use breath techniques to help calm nerves with my couples. These work wonders and I have many other Mindful tips to help too! 

I'm about to release a Mindful Manual for Wedding Prep to my website keep an eye on it and it will be free for download in the coming days!
