Hi, I’m Alex

Back in 2017, amongst the noise of small children and surrendering my teaching career, the seed of a new direction was planted.

Out of the blue, heart-centred friends asked me if I would write and conduct their wedding ceremony and it was… incredible!  I had the experience that day of knowing that I was just where I needed to be. 

The memory of that moment stayed with me and once my girls were all at school, that seed germinated and took root!

I was important to me to be trained and insured so I undertook training with the Fellowship of Professional Celebrants and am now loving life as an Independent Celebrant.

I have a passion for creating ceremonies and holding space so that people can celebrate the big moments in their lives in a way that is totally aligned with them.

I just love drawing in everyone in the room and taking them on a rollercoaster from laughter to tears and back again! 

Whether it’s weddings, vow renewals or naming ceremonies, I work with my wonderful clients extensively beforehand to gather the nuggets of gold I need to make their ceremony as personal and meaningful as it can possibly be. Then, when the day arrives, I hold the space for that love and commitment to flow through the ceremony.

“We can’t thank Alex enough for making our big day so incredibly special. From start to finish she made the process feel personal, intimate and tailored to us as a couple and took out a lot of stress. She took the time to get to know us and the result was reflected in our ceremony…”

Amy & Adam

“Her personal and intimate approach made every person feel included and part of something very special.”

Wedding Guest

“Her deeply calm demeanour, sensitive, dedicated and deeply caring nature make her the perfect celebrant for any special and meaningful occasion.”
