Wed by Anna Signature

Thanks for popping in, and congratulations on a love that is so awesome that it’s got you searching for a celebrant.

Hi, I’m Anna

a very fortunate Port Douglas gal who gets to make celebrating love and marrying gorgeous folk what fills my days and heart.  I’ve been celebrating your love stories for seven years now and I’m still getting swept away in them…and still just as mum-proud, heart-bursting and full of gratitude as I was on the first day!

What are my ceremonies about?  In one word – YOU.  My ceremonies are about capturing your love and shining that beautiful stuff out to the world while you spend those precious moments getting married.

I believe that words can move, transport and connect us – and the words that I speak during your ceremony are words about you, for you, and for the people you love.

my approach

I am a lover of stories and story-telling and the fact that your ceremony is a reflection of your love and personalities is what will have your guests reaching for their tissues, and laughing with their bellies and hearts.

From the most simple elopements to the most exquisite festivals of love, the experiences I share with amazing humans of all ages and demographics have my heart filling up again and again.

Who are my people?

While I was working on this website my graphic designer asked what my target market was and I really had to sit with that.  They are not a certain age or gender, or look or dress a certain way.  The truth is that I feel very blessed that GOOD people from all walks of life find me, and the experiences we have together are beautiful.  

Let’s chat about paradise!

How special is this beautiful region? Port Douglas is host to so many truly incredible locations, from seaside chapels, to private rainforest estates, and everything in between. Whether it is just the two of you, or 150 plus of your favourite people we have you covered!

 

ALL LOVE, ALWAYS.

I pride myself on being a genuinely inclusive service and consider myself very fortunate that people from all walks of life engage with me. The ceremonies we co-create will always be a reflection of your uniqueness.

“We soon realised we had not only found the perfect celebrant for us but a life long friend. Anna captured the most important parts of our relationship and spoke about our love so beautifully. We could not recommend Anna highly enough”

A bunch of awesome local photographers and videographers have been super generous in allowing me to feature their beautiful work on this website – you guys are the best!. So a massive thank you to the following (to get a link to their websites please visit my Friends in the Biz page):

Matthew Evans Photography, The Raw Photographer, Jade Films, The Seiterwood House, Katie Purling Photography, Perspectives Au, Rachelle Angela Photography

It’s a privilege to conduct ceremonies in a region so rich in indigenous culture. These lands (like all lands across our vast continent) hold stories of the Dreamtime and its people have a connection to the land that stretches back millennia. I pay my respects to the Kuku Yalanji, the traditional custodians of this area and the Elders past, present and emerging.
