Welcome to the planning portal!

Because you are here, that means you are getting married by me and I couldn't be more excited for you! This website is designed to give you the greatest amount of knowledge possible to help you plan your perfect day.


Firstly, I would like to congratulate you on your engagement and commend you on finding the one. I hope this experience isn't too daunting yet and best of luck with the exciting road ahead planning your dream wedding. Being the celebrant for such a momentous day in a couple’s life is such an honour and a privilege. I love every minute of my time with every couple and being a part of their planning from the beginning until the end.


Planning a wedding is no easy feat and there is a whole lot of planning ahead. The engagement stage of a relationship provides an important time period for the couple to coordinate, discuss and prepare for their special day when wedding vows will be exchanged and you will be joined for life.


My passion is to make your wedding ceremony one to remember for the rest of your lives. I thrive on seeing the joy on my couples faces when they see the gorgeous piece of artwork, we have created together that is, your ceremony. I am driven and willing to create the ceremony you have always dreamt of and I can’t wait to customize a wedding ceremony that is perfect for the two of you. I look forward to working together with you on this journey.


This website is going to arm you with all the information you will need throughout the wedding planning process but I am also all too happy to answer any questions you may have arise throughout the process as well.  So lets get started!
