Kate Priddle Civil Celebrant
The best thing about being a civil celebrant is having the opportunity to create unique and meaningful ceremonies for people who are looking for a non-religious alternative. Together, we have the freedom to write a ceremony that reflects you as a couple and incorporates your passions, beliefs, loved ones and rituals. It is my role to ensure that all legalities are met and guide you through the process of creating your memorable moment.
My Bachelor of Performing Arts coupled with my Event Management qualification and experience allows me to confidently officiate your ceremony whilst also overseeing all the elements that create an enjoyable and stress free wedding day.
I approach my work with professionalism, warmth, enthusiasm and respect. I am open to incorporating religious and spiritual elements into any ceremony and welcome the opportunity to be creative or unique. I look forward to discussing your ceremony needs with you.
Some recent testimonials…
"When we began looking for a celebrant we knew we wanted someone fun, friendly and personable. Kate was a "top find" for us, (as my husband put it after our first meeting with Kate). Kate is professional, flexible, easy-going and highly organised. She guided us through the formalities whilst always ensuring that our ceremony was a true reflection of us. Without Kate we would not have had a perfectly magical wedding.
I've never been to a wedding where guests have sung praises of the celebrant, or even remembered their name afterwards!! Thank you Kate for being part of our perfect day, we can't imagine what our ceremony would have been without you!"

"There is a beautiful uniqueness to each wedding. You take the hopes and dreams of two individuals and put them together for a magical day of love and romance. I can only imagine how different each one is, and yet there is one constant. The celebrant who must deliver the obligatory legal bit, while still somehow understanding just what the bride and groom want. I found Kate online because we knew where we wanted to get married. We were less fussy about how we wanted to get married, but the details that did matter to us, mattered a lot. I shopped around and spoke with a few different celebrants but Kate immediately set herself apart from the rest. It would be several months before we met Kate in person, but we felt like we already knew her. She is bubbly and fun, caring and easy going, all while being professional and precise. She made it crystal clear that she was willing to go above and beyond to make our day special.
Our wedding day was wonderful and Kate knew exactly how to make our day special. Her personality encompasses the joy and love and grace that every couple wants on their special day. We cannot say enough good things about Kate."

"Kate was a breath of fresh air to our wedding day, she was unflappable and kept a calm about her which certainly helped me keep calm. Kate is witty and gets the crowd laughing in a relaxed and informal way. She listens to your story and embraces how you envisage your special day. Our wedding was a surprise so Kate was very flexible which was really helpful in pulling off the surprise wedding. I am so glad to have Kate share our special day with us"

"We were so happy to have chosen Kate as our celebrant, from the moment we met her she was friendly, warm and personable. We felt instantly at ease with her and she was happy to answer any questions and offer suggestions regarding the ceremony. Communication with Kate was great and we met up a few times before the wedding to make sure we were happy and familiar with the order of ceremony before the big day! Kate encouraged us to adapt the vows so they were personal to us. I would highly recommend Kate to anyone getting married."
