ABOUT ME

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ANNA…

I am so happy your search for a Port Douglas Celebrant has led you here!

I believe that there is nothing more beautiful than being connected with each other in our human experience, and being connected through love.  It’s why being a part of your ceremonies brings me so much happiness.

 This is my seventh year of celebrating your love stories and I continue to learn so much about love from all of you.

People often ask me why I became a celebrant… I found myself studying to become a celebrant after a few people I love (who know me really well) told me this was my calling (crazy that I needed someone else to tell me!).  I can’t believe how right they were…it combines my love for writing and public-speaking (I was the girl always putting my hand up to read the passages out loud in English class 😊), with the joy I get from connecting with people from all walks of life in a meaningful way.

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. 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.

When I am not writing, or off marrying delightful humans, you will find me having rainforest swims with my girls, or digging happily in my garden (not often enough!). We are a gypsy family and I am always longing to walk the next unknown path in some new place (so excited to get back out exploring our beautiful world again!).

BACK OVER TO YOU NOW!

Wishing you so much happiness on the exciting journey ahead, and a stress-free wedding planning experience (it can be you know, and it should be. It’s why planning a ceremony that is authentically you, and doesn’t heed to any phantom expectations is so important).
I hope to chat to you soon!

Look no further than Anna for your ceremony in Tropical North Queensland. I didn’t get to meet her face to face until a couple days before the big day (due to living on the Gold Coast) - but from the very first phone call I had with her I could just tell that she...
