Hi! I’m Sophie....I’m a young, vibrant, professional wedding celebrant who is excited to compose and perform a unique and meaningful wedding ceremony for couples of any age, religion, ethnicity, race or sexual orientation.
I’m like a fabulous cup of herbal tea - just the right blend of spiritual yet skillful, sincere with a hint of sass ;-) I’m chilled but warm, sweet but strong, and I take such delight in being part of the joy that comes with sharing such a meaningful moment with two people in love.
The celebration of your love, your story, & your future as a married couple truly begins with your ceremony. I guide couples through the planning of their ceremony, making it a stress-free process and ensuring it reflects your personality as a couple.
Working with me, your wedding day begins with a personalised, perfectly-you ceremony delivered with warmth, soul and just the right amount of fun :-) This is one of life’s most significant moments and I look forward to doing all I can to make yours an unforgettable celebration!

To be married on Australian soil you need to be 18 years old, or older, not already married, consenting and willing to marriage, and human. If you can meet those conditions, and can give me more than one month’s notice then you can be married in Australia, regardless of gender, religion, country of origin, ethnicity, citizenship, or residential status.
I do what I do by spending time with you before the wedding, usually between one to four 45-90 minute meetings. I typically meet couples in their favourite cafe as our initial meet and greet. If a face to face catch-up isn't possible we can chat via FaceTime all in our pjs with a cup of tea!
I believe that your marriage ceremony and vows are worth being heard, so I have the latest sound equipment, with handheld microphones, so the entire crowd can clearly hear everything. Your music, whether it’s live or off a device, can also be played through my PA system.
It is completely up to you whether or not you want a rehearsal but in my experience is is an effective way to calm nerves & get excited! We will practise timing & positioning, going over elements such as where everyone will stand and who kisses who.
I don’t add on travel fees, and I don’t charge any for weddings inside the areas of Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Hunter Valley & Port Stephens. Travel costs for Ceremonies beyond these areas will be reasonable and agreed on upfront.
Money & deposit
To secure your date a deposit of 50% is required and final payment one month before the wedding. However, if you need a different payment plan, we can chat.
I'm not a fan of hidden or extra costs so my fees are all inclusive.
So...can I Marry You?!
