The mindful celebrant

Let’s tell your story together

Let’s tell your story together

For as long as I can remember, I have believed in the power of Storytelling. Stories can bring us together. Quite simply – they remind us how to FEEL. When we get those goosebumps as we’re captivated by a beautiful story of love, of life, or of loss, we instantly become connected. To the person telling the story, to the characters within the story, and to each other. 

We remember what it is to feel ALIVE!

And my job as your Celebrant, is to help you create your own unique, bespoke ceremony that helps you tell your story so that it lives on in the hearts and minds of all who come to listen.

Hi! I’m Sally, the mindful celebrant.

Professional Hitcher & Champion for Love!

I believe LOVE makes the world go round, so I became a Celebrant to be love’s champion and celebrate it!

I’m a Yoga and Meditation teacher, and a Reiki Master teacher through my wellness business; BE AT ONE, and I love teaching and working with diverse people from all walks of life. I am passionate about living mindfully and with purpose, and these ethics filter into all areas of my life today. I also have a background in Visual Design and Styling, with over a decade’s experience, and have worked as a Designer and Visual Specialist around the World. I have a love of public speaking too, having been a lecturer for 2 years, and I’ve given many talks and workshops on both Mindfulness and Yoga. I was born in England, but my home today is Avoca Beach on the Central Coast of Australia. My husband Mike and I have been married for 10 years (but who’s counting..!) We have 2 children; Ruby (3) and Jonah (1), a big dog called Bodhi, and a few fabulous backyard chooks.

I’m a fun, vibrant Celebrant who cherishes the ceremonies I have the privilege to create. From Weddings and Elopements, to Vow Renewals, Baby Naming ceremonies, Mother Blessing-ways, Funerals and Memorial services. Your day should be the truest reflection of YOU. And it is my absolute pleasure to help you make memories that you will cherish forever.

“We had the pleasure of this beautiful soul working with us to help create our relaxed dream of a festival wedding. Sally’s personal and creative professional approach made our ideas comes together. It wouldn’t have been the same without her!”

– Amy & Ian 29.02.2020 (Glenworth Valley, NSW)

 “Sally delivered a truly unique and tailored naming ceremony for my son. It exceeded all my expectations. She managed to create something so personal, so special and so memorable. All my guests were blown away. It really was the perfect day. She speaks with such wisdom delivered in a humble way. Emanates calm and speaks always from the heart. She can hold the attention of the room while making you feel like she’s there for you and you only. She really is a special woman. And what she creates in her events is absolute magic!”

– Amanda  02.02.2020 (Melbourne, VIC)

I acknowledge all traditional custodians of the land on which I live & work.   I pay my respects to the ancient bloodlines that have tended this land & I honour their leaders; past, present & emerging.
