Island resident - Lot's of fun - Dream Weddings - Same Sex Marriages

Have your dream wedding in Paradise.   I am very excited to welcome same sex marriages to Magnetic Island and I plan to be very busy!

Let's talk about what you are looking for. You may want to elope with just the two of you and send a 'selfie' to your family and friends after you've tied the knot. Or you may want a wedding for 100's of your closest friends and family with five bridesmaids and five groomsmen including your dogs, everything can be catered for on Maggie Island.

My professionalism and experience celebrating 100's of weddings, combined with a warm personality and wicked sense of humour helps make planning and experiencing your big day so much more relaxed. You can be confident that you will have the day you want, or if you're one of those who don't really know what you want, you're sure to have your expectations exceeded!

Come to Magnetic Island - where all your dreams come true!  Check out my website for more information at: www.bernadettesmithcelebrant@bigpond.com.


I live in a tropical paradise and love life. A celebrant for over 10 years I started singing at weddings in my youth. Not only do I have the pleasure of marrying people in paradise, I also own and run and perform at Stage Door Theatre Restaurant on the Island every weekend. Singing, comedy, great food. A lot of my couples come back to the Island for a dinner and show and catch up, to celebrate once again. It's the best night out in North Queensland!

Bernadette was a fantastic celebrant. Even though the communication was sometimes a bit bumpy, we got there in the end and had the gorgeous intimate ceremony we had wished for! Bernadette met us the day before the wedding, which was great to get to know her and smooth out the details of the wedding.

Bernadette was lovely and assisted with all our questions beforehand. The readings that she suggested were beautiful and she was able to create a really funny and comfortable setting. Bernadette was able to see our vision, and made it happen.

Who can be our witnesses if we don't know anyone in Australia?

Bernadette Smith

Your photographer can be one witness and/or ask your celebrant if they wouldn't mind bringing along a friend or two.  Or if you're in a public place you can ask some interested onlookers to witness.  They just need to be over 18 years.
