My home office is situated in Glenorie/Middle Dural which is in the semi-rural green belt 45 minutes north west of Sydney CBD but I enjoy exploring new territories so traveling to ceremonies is part of the fun.

I love researching and exploring the notion of celebrations especially with the purpose of creating unique and individual wedding ceremonies.

I am a trained speaker soI can confidently andarticulately deliver a genuine and heartfelt ceremony. The outcome of combining my natural skill set of writing, speaking and performance with my love of learning and exploring new horizons, are romantic weddings with a modern twist of pageantry....weaving magic!

My husband is my invaluable assistant and among other duties he controls the music and PA. Two people working to make your wedding extraordinary!

Naming Ceremonies are a joy for me, having 5 children of my own I feel as though I can bring a genuine sincerity and understanding about the thrill of motherhood. I have devised some tender and loving ceremonies which are unique and truly loving. My fee for this style of ceremony is $400 and will leave every guest with an appreciation of why Naming Ceremonies are relevant and beautiful.

Thank you, beautiful Mary for our magnificent ceremony. It was just what we wanted. Tender, elegant, moving, exuberant, eloquent, funny, happy, exciting, loving and apt. Thank you also for guiding us through this whole process with humour and love. You will always have a place in our hearts - here, there and everywhere. We love you.
Savanna & Reno, Narrabeen

Thank you so so much for marrying us on Sunday, your vibe, loveliness and beautiful aura set the mood of our guests for our wedding, which carried on throughout the day. Thank you also for making our wedding ceremony so personal with the wishes and ribbon tying, it felt very us and we all got very emotional and was the perfect mix of love, quirkiness and formal proceedings.
Sarah and Joel, Picnic Point

Our guests in particular said you were fantastic in the warm up before we walked down the aisle as well and our wedding wouldn’t have been as wonderful as it was if you hadn't been apart of it.
Nicky and Oscar, Kirribilli

Lovely Mary! I went to my friends wedding on the weekend & James, I and a few friends who attended our wedding, all commented on the celebrant and we thought you were soooo much better. You really did tell a story of our love and created this beautiful intimacy between us. Thanks again, we will never forget our special day!
Emma and James, Redfern

What can we say? The ceremony was just the most beautiful, honest and moving part of the day thanks to you and your amazing delivery and presence.

Many people including my dad commented on how phenomenal you were and how lucky we were to have found you, this is something we already know :)
