I grew up in one of the most beautiful parts of Sydney, on the Northern Beaches overlooking Manly Beach, NSW. I have also lived in Papua New Guinea, Tasmania and Victoria – never far from the beach and adventure. I have a real zest for life and love to explore our planet!
I am blessed to now live in Peregian Beach, near Noosa, on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland and love nothing better than creating special ceremonies in this idyllic part of the world.
I qualified as a Marriage Celebrant in 2007 and since then I have been conducting ceremonies in celebration of all stages of life; including Weddings, Renewal of Vows and Naming Ceremonies as well as End of Life planning and services. The joy I get from being part of these special moments, is every bit as rewarding today, as my very first ceremony!
I have always been passionate about nature and the world around us and I try to adopt eco-friendly practices in both my life and business. I am always happy to offer a few eco-friendly ideas to make your celebration that little bit more sustainable!
For every ceremony I conduct, a native tree is planted into the National Park surrounding my home where the bush was burnt out in the 2019 bush fires.
My intimate wedding packages evolved from all the wonderful couples I have married from Australia and all over the world, who chose to have a simple wedding in a stunning location with just themselves or a few family/friends present.
Your intimate ceremony will be very personal and absolutely about the two of you! Speak to each other from the heart – without the ‘audience’. Eliminate the stress and expense of a big wedding!
Wherever you are in the world, you will have my professional support every step of the way. I have worked with some of the best wedding professionals available and can suggest florists, photographers, decorators, restaurants and accommodation to suit your own unique style.
Ceremony takes place at my home in Peregian Beach overlooking Noosa National Park.
Maximum 5 people present (Celebrant, couple and 2 adult witnesses).
For up to 10-20 guests. Your ceremony can be held on the deck at my home in Peregian Beach, overlooking Noosa National Park or at other stunning locations in the Coolum/Peregian Beach area. If you prefer a quiet, country or bush wedding, I am happy to help with that also.
Please contact me for further information about your ceremony style, packages and inclusions.
End of Life
Dealing with death and planning a funeral can be a daunting and emotional process. I am a sincere, warm and compassionate person and I will listen carefully to what you want. Let me help you create an inspirational, affordable and authentic farewell. I have a degree in Social Science (Pastoral Counselling) and have experience in grief counselling, palliative and hospice care.

Celebration of Life
Funerals & Memorials
Thank you Jacqui. You really helped me at a time when I struggled to deal with what was happening. I knew when Michelle died, that you were the only person we would want to conduct her Memorial Service.
You married us in a magical ceremony when none of us were aware of what was in store for the future.
At the end of Michelle’s life, I appreciate everything you did for us; the celebration of her life was truly beautiful and full of love.
Jacqui, I wanted to let you know that your calmness, your gentle voice and care and guidance for me and my family in discussing Mum’s funeral, was so appreciated. To be suddenly confronted with coping with grief and having to sit with the whole family to discuss and agree on the details for Mum’s funeral was so difficult; yet the final result was a beautifully crafted ceremony. Mum would have loved it. And she would have loved you, for your gentleness, your sense of humour and ability to have our family agree on all aspects of the ceremony and eulogy.
