Hi! I’m sally

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.
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 also a passionate Yogi, (having taught Yoga for over 7 years), and a Reiki Master. I love working with diverse people from all walks of life and I’m very passionate about living mindfully and with purpose. These ethics filter into all areas of my life.
I have a background in visual design, styling and public speaking too! I’ve given University lectures, talks and workshops, on all of the above. But today – what I love speaking about most – is LOVE! I was born in England, but my home today is Avoca Beach on Australia’s Central Coast. I’ve been married for 11 years to my Husband Mike, (but who’s counting..!) We have 2 children; Ruby and Jonah, and a big dog called Bodhi.
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.
Your ceremony is the centre-point of your whole wedding. You want to create all the ‘feels’ for a day you & your guests will never forget, (for the right reasons)! I Work With You To create Your ceremony, Stress Free.
The process couldn’t be easier! Usually it flows a little something like this…
We meet! Either virtually or in person.
This allows us to find out if we’re a good match for creating your unique, bespoke ceremony in the truest expression of you both, as a couple.
I take care of all the Legal paperwork so you can relax and enjoy the process!
There are a selection of important legal documents that you need to complete before you can be legally married to your lover! From the NOIM (Notice of Intention to Marry, which needs to be signed 1 month prior to the date of your marriage), to the official Marriage Certificate and Statutory Declarations of no legal impediment to marry. There is also the Marriage Register, a decorative presentation certificate AND following the marriage, an official application for your Certificate from Births Deaths and Marriages in your State. Sounds like a headache already..?! Don’t worry, I’ll do it ALL for you!
Getting Creative Together!
Already know what you want..? Amazing! Haven’t got the foggiest clue where to start..? Also Amazing. Whether you have a really good idea of what you want, or no idea whatsoever; I will help you with a tonne of inspiration. You’ll receive a copy of my continuously developing e-book, ‘Celebrating Love’, filled with juicy ideas for readings, rituals, love songs and more. If you want to make your guests laugh – it’s done! If you want your partner to shed a cheeky tear, we can make that happen too. YOUR day will be just that – perfectly and absolutely YOURS. Let’s Tell Your Story Together!
“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.
Let’s make magic happen!
