Hello and thanks so much for stopping by and considering me for your up-coming Ceremony. 

Whether you are looking for a warm, caring and empathetic person to conduct a Celebration of Life or Funeral or a vibrant, welcoming Celebrant to officiate at your wedding, you’ll be in good hands with me.

How will you know if I’m the right celebrant for you?  The best way to make that decision is to have a meeting with me face to face over a coffee or a wine (your choice, my shout) and see if we ‘click’, or we could initially meet via Zoom.  It’s important that you feel comfortable with your Celebrant and have a sense of ‘connection’ because we’re going to work together to create a Ceremony that you will remember with great fondness and good memories long after the day, whether it be a Wedding, a Funeral or some other celebration or ceremony.

As a Civil Celebrant I am authorised by the Attorney General of Australia, and can conduct marriages anywhere in Australia!  (oh, and by the way, I do love to travel!).

about Val

I live in North Central Victoria in the beautiful leafy township of Yea. This means not only am I handy to the Yarra Valley, but also the high country of Mansfield and surrounds. Other areas easily accessible for me are Avenel, Nagambie, Shepparton and Euroa, and if I take my motor home I can happily travel to Daylesford, Echuca or Wodonga and in the opposite direction to Warburton, the Dandenongs and the Mornington Peninsula. I’m versatile like that. In fact, most winters you’ll find me in sunny North Queensland, so if you’re contemplating a ceremony ‘up north’ talk to me!

And when I’m not being a Celebrant? You’ll find me either pottering about in my garden, spending time with my friends and family, taking a leisurely drive in my little red 1970 MG or attempting to hit golf balls around our beautiful golf course in Yea. I also love to take off in my motor home and the best part about being a Celebrant is that my ‘work’ travels with me.
