Your ceremony will absolutely set the tone of your celebration and it is waaaaay too often understated. If you're willing to share a little bit of yourselves and your story, you can create a heartfelt sentiment that will powerfully connect everyone in attendance- whether it be through love, laughter, the legals, tears or even champagne. Its my job to help you get the mix just right!
I'll bring my genuine, warm + upbeat energy, powerful words, humour and passion for engaging with people to the party. I'll look after all the planning, paperwork and legalities - leaving you to free to enjoy this moment in time with your biggest love and the most important people in your lives!
Sidenote - I have joined forces with Lyons Den and launched a quickie wedding chapel in Gosford's iconic heritage listed art deco Creighton's building, THe Parlour. It is a one-of-a-kind experience, bringing all the excitement of a registry wedding with the sophistication and trimmings of a grand celebration. Snazzy as.

I became a celebrant because I wanted to share the joy, and let's be honest, so I could have the job title of an official party starter!
I really enjoy getting to know new people and listening to their unique stories.
This inspires me to get the pen to paper and craft it all into something pretty spesh. Everything is better when shared. Being a celebrant has only reaffirmed that love is the truest magic I know.

So What Is The Process?
FIRST MEETING- Once you have set a date, let's talk.. If i'm available we will arrange a meeting in person or via videocall to ensure that we will work well together.
FIRST TASK - Time to get the legal forms happening. We will go over the structure of a ceremony and what you actually want your day to feel like. I will be getting as much juicy information from you as possible.
Legal paperwork must be completed 31 days prior to your ceremony and no more than 18 months in advance. I will need to sight your passport or birth certificate and drivers licence during this process. If you have been previously married or your spouse is deceased, the divorce decree or death certificate will be required.
THE CREATIVE MAGIC HAPPENS - With all my gathered information I build your ceremony until you are happy with everything. I can also assist you with your vows.
THE BIG DAY - I will arrive 30 minutes before your ceremony with my battery operated PA system and my calm, relaxing vibe for you to draw from. I will perform your ceremony and YAY time to celebrate! I will look after the lodging of your paperwork with Births, Deaths and Marriages and can also assist you to apply for your Offical Marriage Certificate.

I'm not sure I can put into words just how amazing Tara is as a celebrant (and person!) She is the embodiment of love and joy, without being corny or OTT. Tara really took the time to find out what type of ceremony we wanted and created something that was unique to us. We laughed, we cried and we will remember it forever.
Tara - thankyou for not only writing and delivering such a brilliant ceremony, but for making the whole process (pre and post wedding) run so smoothly! You're and absolute gem!
Roshan & Angela, Lightspace
A ceremony that we will forever treasure, and all thanks to Tara! Tara put so much effort into making it so personal and engaging, and was a godsend to calm both mine and my husbands nerves on the day. Tara is truly gifted at what she does and can't thank her enough for making our ceremony absolutely perfect!
Amanda & Chris, The Forest Chapel
I'm so happy we chose Tara as our celebrant for our wedding. From the beginning she was completely understanding of the type of ceremony we wanted. On our big day she delivered! Warm, funny and an all round awesome human. I had so many guests comment on how great she was. It made our day knowing our ceremony was everything we dreamed of!
Jess & Ryan, Forresters Beach
Tara's down to earth, yet super professional presentation + authentic way of being will capture your ♡. Thoughtful, calm + articulate, she radiates a rare kind of wonderful sunny energy. Book her for your special event if you can!
