About Jenny, Your Celebrant

 
I love my job. As one of the few full-time professional, gay-positive/gay-friendly celebrants in the Brisbane area I have no competing obligations, so being a celebrant is not a side-hustle for me. This means I am available 24/7 and your ceremony really is my top priority. As a secular humanist, I value all people and and their relationships. As a progressive celebrant, I am totally committed to ensuring that the ceremonies I create are respectful, celebratory, and fun.

And as an Authorised Marriage Celebrant,  proud mother of a gay child, and member of AME and PFLAG, with a long history of advocating for marriage equality in Australia, I am thrilled to be able to legally marry all couples.

As an accredited Naming Celebrant and General Celebrant I also offer ceremonies to acknowledge or celebrate other events
  •     the loving commitment of partners who are not legally marrying
  •     the naming and welcoming of a child into the family
  •     renewal of marriage vows for couples celebrating staying married
  •     a divorce or end of a relationship
  •     reaching puberty or maturity (wise-woman ceremonies also known as croning)
  •     launching of businesses or other ventures
  •     house-warming
  •     other ceremonies
As a Secular Humanist Celebrant I strongly affirm the dignity of each human being, support the  maximisation of individual liberty and opportunity consonant with both social and environmental responsibility, and endorse democracy, education, equality, justice, tolerance, reason and environmental responsibility.  I am non-judgmental. I welcome all couples with open arms, and therefore I provide ceremonies for everyone regardless of culture, age, gender, religion, sexual orientation, or the time of day or type of setting in which the ceremony is being held (with a few exceptions relating to legality or safety).  I focus on delivering meaningful non-religious ceremonies. But you can also be confident that I will respect your belief system, whatever it is, and if you wish, include expressions of your spirituality in your ceremony.
