With a background in stand up comedy I want to breathe new life into marriage ceremonies!
Over the years I went to so many weddings that I felt like a professional wedding guest! Although I loved seeing friends tie the knot, it was also a little bit weird as all the ceremonies were so formal that I just didn't get it!? My friends were all easy-going and down-to-earth, yet they'd have these stuffy, impersonal ceremonies that didn't reflect their personalities at all. That's when I decided to become a celebrant; I was determined to offer an alternative.
I conduct ceremonies that are fun, meaningful and unique to each couple. I like to use a touch of humour to break the ice, ease the tension and bring the gathering together. But rest assured I don't crack bad jokes up the front! Instead, as a professional writer and comedic specialist, I create an awesome ceremony with a couple of funny bits, and this is signed off by you long before the wedding. On the day I stick to the script; there are no surprises!
I am a celebrant because I believe in marriage; I don't think it's just a piece of paper. I believe it takes courage to stand in front of the people you care about most and make a commitment to the one you love, and it's an honour to guide you through the process.
Why choose me to be your celebrant? I am a dedicated, full-time celebrant who knows her stuff. I'm highly experienced, extremely professional, but most importantly...I love what I do!

"Vanessa was absolutely incredible! From the initial introduction through to the ceremony, everything was so seamless. She got to know us over a couple of casual coffees and the ceremony she wrote truly encapsulated both of us as individuals and as a couple. She’s light-hearted and so easy to get along with - she was always quick to reply to answer any questions we had. If you’re looking for a celebrant who can have a laugh and also capture your true love as a couple, I can not recommend Vanessa more highly! Thank you for making our day so heartfelt, full of laughs and so special! It was the best day of our lives and we got so many compliments on how perfect the ceremony was. Thank You, Vanessa!"
