Meet Eliza

Congratulations on planning such an exciting occasion!

I’m delighted you are considering me as your celebrant for your Wedding, Commitment or Renewal, or a Naming Day. To help you decide if we’ll be the perfect match, here are some commonly asked questions below.

What is your style as a celebrant?

On one of the most important days of your life, I pride myself on being a celebrant that is passionate, approachable, professional and experienced. I believe in being well presented, relaxed, natural and making you feel comfortable on the day of your ceremony but most importantly that the focus is on you.

My style as a celebrant has been described as warm, caring and friendly. Throughout the process couples I’ve worked with have found me helpful, positive, patient and understanding.

How will you help plan my ceremony?

I provide thorough guidance and knowledge to create a unique ceremony that is tailored specifically to you. I work collaboratively with all involved to personalise your ceremony and ensure it is delivered with sincerity. At your ceremony, I value being organised, calm and confident (with a little sense of humour to make everyone feel relaxed). From the initial meeting until long after your big day, as a celebrant, I love being able to make your ceremony a memorable one.

What is an ideal ceremony to you?

The ideal ceremony for me would be fun, modern, stress-free and suit your style. I like to establish a rapport with others involved in the ceremony including parents, family, friends and also the suppliers, including the venue. I love going above and beyond with little extras, making everything run smoothly (even with unforeseen circumstances) and being there on the big day with a smile on my face.

Where are you based?

I have a strong reputation now, especially in Sydney and live on the beautiful Northern Beaches. I have worked with several outstanding venues including some of my favourites Athol Hall Mosman, Narrabeen Surf Life Saving Club, Palm Beach Golf Club, Milestone Events Manly and The Grounds of Alexandria. My favourite venue of all would have to be Bilpin Resort. There are so many amazing venue choices I’d love to discuss with you and I’m keen to travel to new destinations!

Why did you become a celebrant?

I became a celebrant because I wanted to help friends or family who were getting married have a ceremony that reflected them as a couple. I was excited to become a celebrant to provide this option to everyone getting married. This then extended beyond my friends as others began requesting my services. It’s extremely rewarding to have such an important responsibility of marrying others. I believe in creating a partnership that lasts forever and I’m proud of the role I play.

I am lucky to have a mentor (and my marriage celebrant), my Aunt Christine, and of course my husband, Ben to support me. We have a son too, Levi, and I’ve now found the perfect balance filling my days as a mum, celebrant and part-time primary school teacher.

Anything else I should know?

I hope you can gauge by now how much I love ceremonies and love what I do. Please reach out if you have any other further questions or would like to arrange a time to meet in person. I’d love to connect with you and plan the ceremony that you’ll remember forever. I look forward to hearing from you.
