Hi I'm Shelly, a registered wedding celebrant based in Sydney. Combining warmth, professionalism and an eye for detail ensuring your ceremony is more than just special, but is an experience to last a lifetime.


Love is universal. But there’s no one way to celebrate love. Traditional or Spiritual. At a five-star venue or barefoot on the beach. Formal or laidback, whatever your vision for your unforgettable day, I specialise in transforming that dream into reality with ceremonies that capture the essence of what’s important to you and your partner.


You may have a crystal clear idea of what your ceremony looks like, or perhaps you’re looking for some advice and guidance - from initial planning through to the legal details and the ceremony itself, I can help through all stages of the ceremony process.


I have a deep appreciation for the role a celebrant will play in your special day and it is a sincere honour and a privilege to work with each and every couple.

My commitment to you is to help you make your ceremony everything you and your partner have always dreamed of.



Choosing the right celebrant is a big deal. The best way to approach this is by giving me a call. This way we can connect get to know each other and you can feel into whether I'm the right fit for you. We could also organise an obligation free Skype or FaceTime if you prefer.


Let's check my availability for your day, get our schedules together and meet up for a tea or coffee. The official legal paperwork is lodged with me - don't worry I've got this, then we can move onto the fun part.... planning your ceremony. As a professional celebrant I walk with you through each phase of the ceremony step by step - so we all have a full understanding of timing and choreography.  

There is a short questionnaire for you and your partner and when this is completed I interweave your love story into a ceremony that is crafted and written to quintessentially reflect you and your partner. We liaise back and forth until your 100 percent happy and it's perfect!

Shelly is the most amazing celebrant and we're so happy we found her for our wedding! Such a warm and merry personality and her passion for celebrating love is clear. Our ceremony was so much more magical than we could ever have imagined, and many of our guests also commented on how great she was. Thank you Shelly for making our wedding ceremony so special and unforgettable! 

Luke & Rachael

Shelly was the perfect celebrant for us and we had an amazing day, which we will always remember. Shelly has the exact personality and disposition to be a celebrant - it's the perfect job for her! She helped us hugely and gave us great advice on how to plan the ceremony and how to put together our vows and everything else. We ended up with a day that was 100% personal to us, and we could not have done it without Shelly! The process, and the day, were all great fun and really enjoyable. Thanks for the memories Shelly.

Shelly was the perfect celebrant for the small intimate celebration that we wanted. She met up with us beforehand at our home to get a sense of who we are and she took notes as we told our story. The questionnaire was really thoughtful and designed to draw out personal details. On the day Shelly was professional and warm, she bonded easily with our small group of family and friends. Our little anecdotes appeared in Shelly’s introduction to the ceremony which provided some humour and made it very customised. She understood exactly the tone and intimacy that we wanted. Shelly is naturally very warm, personable and charming. We couldn’t have asked for a better celebrant.

Tanya & Tobias

Thank you Shelly for the beautiful ceremony you created for us. It was a night of love. Your grace and poise equaled the loving thoughtful ceremony you created. We are so thankful and grateful. The tone you set flowed through the night. From the bottom of our hearts thank you.

We decided to use Shelly as our celebrant when we got married at Balmoral Beach and we can’t speak highly enough of what a wonderful job she did.
It was quire a small ceremony, with about 15 family members, and Shelly was able to personalise the service beautifully for the intimate gathering. She lovingly included all of our of relatives, young and old, in the ceremony.
She took care of the music, the paperwork and the formalities, and everything went without a hitch. It gave us great peace of mind on the day when we were going through the final preparations to know that Shelley was there with everything in hand.
We highly recommended Shelly and cannot thank her enough for helping make our special day so memorable.
