Civil Celebrant

Simple, elegant ceremonies

I am a civil celebrant in Victoria (based in Shepparton, however I am willing to travel). I specialise in providing simple, elegant civil ceremonies. This may be just the couple and their witnesses or a small gathering of friends and family. While I am able to do much larger ceremonies, this is not my speciality. If you have someone performing the main ceremony who is not a registered celebrant, I'm also happy to work with them to ensure your special day is everything you want it to be.

About me

I decided to become a civil celebrant out of a sense of wanting to help people access celebrancy services in my community. Being a celebrant is something I enjoy and believe in. It's not something I do day in and day out, and I try to be as flexible as possible with that aim of increasing access. My 'day job' is as a doctor, so my main availability is evenings and weekends (I'm also not able to marry people who are my patients, or provide medical services to people I marry). I'm also Jewish, so I am never available from Friday evening until Saturday after nightfall. I am available most Sundays and public holidays.
