Maria Padbury

Years ago I was part of a friend's wedding and I really enjoyed how the celebrant helped us all celebrate this new chapter in our friend's life. I guess you would say she inspired me to become a celebrant in the first place! The first wedding I officiated was for someone I mentor and it was a great honour to be chosen. It was such a privilege to be involved in creating a ceremony that truly expressed who they are as a couple and tell their unique story. I'll never forget their tears as they both read their vows to each other and their euphoric delight once they had been announced as married!

My background for the past 20 years has been in Learning and Development and I have always enjoyed helping others unlock their potential. In my capacity as a celebrant I love meeting people, hearing their unique story of how they met, learning about their hopes and dreams for the future and sharing this with their families and friends. Being a celebrant is wonderful because life is beautiful, intense, poetic and is worth celebrating at every stage of life.

My motto in life is 'kindness, compassion and love' and this is how I live my life... I also believe 'If it is to be, it is up to me.' this means that responsibility is key and the happiness of my clients is a driving force. I'm located in Chadstone - The fashion capital! I'm happy to travel in order to deliver the ceremony of your dreams. Send me an enquiry today and let's talk about your special day. My celebrant fee starts at $700.
