Congratulations on a love so wonderful that it has brought you here

 

Hi and Welcome! I am Anna – a very fortunate Port Douglas gal who gets to make celebrating love and marrying gorgeous folk what fills my days and heart. I have always been all about the feels, so to find myself telling love stories for a living is truly ‘living the dream’.

What are my ceremonies about?  In one word – YOU.  My ceremonies are about capturing you in all your beauty; bold (or subtle), hilarious (or serious), cheeky (or demure) and shining your light out to the world while you spend those precious moments getting married.

My ceremonies are about having your guests laughing, crying and being entirely engaged in those moments as we reflect on your love, where it has taken you, and the wonderful places it is yet to go.

The writing is an enormous highlight for me in my role as a celebrant…and I extract all the golden information that forms your ceremony by asking you to complete a series of questions (separately).  Your responses become the heart of the ceremony, and by answering separately the experience on the day is as organic, wonderful and emotional as it can possibly be.

Anna made so much time for us and met up with us several times before our wedding. She was so patient with us as we were rather last minute in a few things! She was absolutely amazing on the day as she really captured us as a couple. People were even asking about where we got our celebrant from after the ceremony!!! Absolutely amazing and she went above and beyond for our special day.

The ceremony Anna created for us was fantastic it was personally trailered to my hubby and I. She was a joy to work with. The day was perfect. Our family also commented on what a wonderful job she did. It was a privilege to have her officiate our special day. She also looks great in our photos haha thanks again Anna

I can’t recommend Anna highly enough. Anna was so helpful with explaining the whole process and gave wonderful suggestions for our ceremony which really helped us make it about us. All of our guests commented on how personal the ceremony was and how warm and friendly Anna was. Anna is a great communicator and was so professional. Thank you Anna for making our day so special I can’t imagine a ceremony more perfect than what you did for Jo and I.

Olivia and I had the most beautiful wedding experience and it was all because of Anna. She was professional, kind, and respectful from the beginning. Her words were beautiful on the day and it made our wedding the best day of our lives. Thank you Anna!

Anna was incredible from the minute we started working with her. She really understood the type of ceremony my husband & I had in mind and without her our ceremony wouldn’t have felt so unique and special. All of our guests said Anna captured perfectly our relationship and how much they enjoyed the ceremony. We would highly recommend Anna!

Firstly, Rob and I would like to thank you so much for your support during our wedding preparation, and your love, laughter, warm heart and big smile on our special day. You made our day so special and words can’t describe how wonderful it was to have you as part of this celebration. You wrote and delivered such a perfect ceremony for us. The ceremony captured our love, our story and our journey together. Thank you so much for everything, you will always be in our hearts!

Let’s chat about paradise!  How special is this beautiful region?  Port Douglas is host to so many truly incredible locations, from seaside chapels, to private rainforest estates, and everything in between.  Whether it is just the two of you, or your tribe of +150 we have you covered!

I am SO BLESSED to work with so many crazy talented, and passionate suppliers to bring my couple’s dreams to life.  I have added ‘Supplier Love’ to the dropdown menu to help you in your search for the right team of creatives for your special day.

…and in regard to your celebrant 😊, please do get in touch to see if I might be the right fit for you and your love on the journey to wedded-bliss.  Contact me to arrange an informal, obligation-free meeting to talk about your ideas, and how we can turn them into a ceremony which everyone will remember. This initial meeting can be in person, or more commonly, for those enquiring from afar let’s chat on the phone or via Skype!

I love my work so much and never want it to grow old (for you, or me) so I am constantly seeking ways to make your ceremonies more fun, more engaging and as unique and wonderful as they can possibly be.  I am a member of this amazing group of celebrants, who are inspired, upbeat, and dedicated to making your experiences next-level fabulous…you can check them out here!
