Happy Customers, Happy Me

I’m not happy unless you're happy, I want to guarantee satisfaction, and ensure the vision for the event is realised and celebrated in the big day.


I consider Kirsty one of the most romantic people I know and I couldn’t think of a better quality for someone crafting a wedding ceremony to tell a couple’s story on their wedding day. She values the special moments in a couple’s relationship and understands the importance of celebrating them. She is optimistic and kind hearted by nature. She is open minded and respectful of others beliefs and decisions. Kirsty is very thoughtful, often thinking of how her actions will impact those around her. Her diverse personal interest enables her to make connections with the people she meets. She has a great ability to read a room, knowing when to have fun and when to be serious, when to be invisible and when to take charge of a situation or when to follow. She is a natural people person, finding the right tone for the moment.

Clancy Lyons (Hilton Hotels)

I couldn’t think of anyone better to help people formally recognise their relationships & share in the celebration of love with their friends & families. As well as being highly capable, dependable & professional, Kirsty is also one of the kindest, loveliest, most conscientious & upbeat people I’ve met & is perfectly suited to the marriage celebrant role. Her personable, happy & genuine nature will make people feel at ease immediately & her caring, empathetic approach will undoubtedly result in some beautiful & successful marriages.

Heidi Gillingham (GO with Tourism)

Kirsty shows aptitude in any task she completes. She is kind and caring and really wants our students to succeed. She is also extremely well organised and diligent. All the above are transferable skills which would suit her well for a Celebrant role.
