I would love to help make your wedding
unique, wonderful, relaxed, uplifting, blissful, touching, sacred, unforgettable,
radiant, exciting, special, ecstatic... and fun!
It's all possible.

Hello, my name is Alison and I am a registered Marriage celebrant. I believe your wedding ceremony should be a glorious and memorable occasion, one which reflects who you are in a unique and special way.

I have many years experience in teaching, lecturing, counseling and directing choirs, including the well known Byron Bay choir, Allegro gone Troppo. As an experienced organizer of concerts, rituals and other community events, I bring a relaxed and easy competence to your special day.


Having lived in the magnificent Byron Shire for 18 years, I am very familiar with its people, culture and places of beauty. I believe it to be an area of great magic and power, and a perfect place for starting a new life together.

I can provide you with some sample ceremonies, as well as suggestions to help you write your own. I have a large collection of poems and readings and a wealth of ideas about incorporating special features, such as rituals from other traditions, involvement of children, parents or friends in the ceremony, or the addition of symbols or themes which are significant to you.


I am looking forward to hearing from you, so contact me by phone or email and we can begin to plan your wedding ceremony,which will be the centrepiece of one of the most memorable and beautiful days of your life!

As well as marriages I also carry out other ceremonies including: Renewal of Vows, Baby Namings, Same sex commitments, Life Transitions, and rituals of all kinds!
