I'm a mum of a beautiful teenager daughter, and I have been involved in weddings on Magnetic Island since 2001. I'm a strong believer in love, and expressing that love in a wedding is a moment in time that I am honoured to be a part of. I hope to help you create your one of a kind wedding ceremony.

Kelly was so lovely, and her experience during consultations was appreciated. Not only did she understand what we wanted our ceremony to look like, she had so many materials for us to choose from.

We used Kelly for our recent wedding in October. She was amazingly helpful and her local knowledge is an asset. We planned our whole wedding in under 5 months with some great recommendations from Kelly. She took the time to understand what style of wedding we were after and helped make our day relaxed and enjoyable. Couldn't rate her highly enough.

Kelly was fantastic for our in wedding in July. I thought living out of town would be hard to make plans but Kelly made it easy for us and the ceremony went beautifully.

Thank you Kelly for making our wedding day such a special one! Leading up to the day made filling out all the paperwork easy and got to know us as a couple. As we are interstate it did make it tricky but Kelly made it work. Was such a great day and cannot thank her enough!

Kelly was responsive, relaxed and flexible, and had some great ideas that really added special touches to our ceremony. Our plans changed couple of times but she was always happy and accomodating and helped make our wedding day really special 🌺

Do celebrants have a backup celebrant in case of emergencies?

Hello. I was wondering what happens if our celebrant is sick or something happens and they can't come to our wedding on the day? Do they usually have a backup celebrant in mind for this sort of thing? And how does it work with the legal side, would our marriage still be legal if another celebrant performed the ceremony? Thank you!

Eronda Ceremonies

Yes we do keep in touch with a network of celebrants, so there is always someone to turn to in case of emergency. I guarantee that if there is any unforseen circumstance that prevents me from being there on the day, that another celebrant will be arranged for my couples free of charge.

Is there anyway possible to get married without witnesses

Can you be married without witnesses in the same room. As I have anxiety issues and I don't do very well around other people.

Eronda Ceremonies

I often suggest to my couples to have their parents as witnesses, or the people they feel closest to. Some couples choose to only have the photographer and musician to be their witnesses, for the intimate elopements that I perform on the beach, here on beautiful Magnetic Island. Make a holiday out of your wedding and then you will feel a lot more relaxed about the day too. Ask me about eloping to Magnetic Island for your tropical island wedding.

what time is your favourite for a wedding ceremony

Eronda Ceremonies

Most brides get married at 3pm going along with the tradition, and it does allow time for lunch beforehand which is really necessary even if the bridal party don't feel peckish, at least some small sandwiches are a good idea. But if you aren't having a professional photographer or a big bridal party a 4pm wedding is often better. Even 5pm is fine for a small wedding without a photographer, depending on the time of year, but especially during summer.  Lots of brides prefer a later timed wedding so they can have some sunset photographs. That's why the later timed weddings are my favourite. Just love a sunset!
