Susie Figgis - Marriage Celebrant
Your wedding ceremony is a super charged moment to stand facing the one you love … celebrating your happiness together and sharing your vision for the future. It will be one of the most precious moments in your life, so my job is to help make it feel totally relevant and aligned with you as a couple.
In getting to know you I’ll learn all about your love story, and bring it to life in your ceremony. Everyone there, especially you, will feel that we created a ceremony that is a true reflection of you.
I have a modern relaxed approach that most people enjoy, and my versatility and experience allow me to embrace both spiritual and non-spiritual ceremonies. I've helped facilitate over 350 unique and amazing weddings, big and small, ritzy and reverent, honest, funny and inspirational! Couples are all so different and there’s never one ceremony the same.
I look forward to hearing from you.
A few testimonials..
Ethan and Michelle ( Married at Verandahs)
Susie exudes calm and has a genuine interest in other's lives that goes far beyond mere professional courtesy. Her process in shaping our ceremony was instrumental in helping us voice our true reasons for marriage. As atheists, Susie was fantastic in suggesting elements for the ceremony that elevated our wedding beyond mere civil union. The structure and pacing of the wedding was superb, never rushed or preachy but still incorporating a wonderful sense of occasion.. Her performance in front of our guests was confident but relaxed, perfectly fitting our Byron Bay location. All our guests thought she was fantastic, but never stole the limelight.
Talia and Kieran – (Married at the Fig Tree)
We are so glad that we chose Susie to be our celebrant - as soon as we met her we knew she was someone special. She showed a real interest in us as a couple and in our story - and this came across beautifully in the ceremony. Our guests loved that the proceedings were so “us” - so genuine, honest and real. We received glowing reviews. All of our dealings with Susie were very positive - she is friendly and relaxed, yet suitably professional and is clearly passionate about her work. Flexible and adaptable to your needs, she knows what makes a great ceremony, what works and what doesn’t, and provides some inspiring suggestions. Thank you so much Susie for being an absolute delight. Your warmth, grace, and serene nature made you the perfect person to preside over our nuptials.
Amber and Tobi (Married at Byron Lighthouse)
Susie brought with her the most beautiful presence and energy which perfectly complimented our ceremony. Susie a huge thank you for being your spiritual and beautiful self and playing such a key part in our wedding ceremony. You have an incredible energy and every time I looked at you, it reminded me why we'd chosen you as our celebrant.
Carmen and Grant (Married at Little Wategos)
We both felt an immediate connection with Susie. She’s a wonderful warm human being and she instantly just got what we wanted. Susie helped us find our magical location and gave us a wonderful variety of ceremony options to choose from. I highly recommend Susie if you want a down to earth, caring, open minded and professional wedding celebrant.
Laura and Bill (married at Koreelah house)
We knew we wanted Susie to marry us as soon as we made contact with her. She has a naturally friendly, open and grounding character. She gently guided us through choosing how we wanted the ceremony to look and presented us with great advice to help us write our vows. Thank you for being guiding us so sincerely and joyfully through our Ceremony.
Holly and Tim (married at Limpinwood lodge)
Susie provided us with so much inspiration and perfect wording to build a ceremony that truly represented us as a couple. We knew from the start that she was the one for us as she was professional and organised yet earthy and warm. Susie was fantastic on the day and you just can’t go wrong with this wonderful warm woman as your celebrant.
Morgan and James – (Married at Federal Chapel)
Looking back on our day, the ceremony was definitely the best part! It was intimate and personal and very us. I have had so many people say it was the best ceremony they had been to. Nothing was taken too seriously… or too lightly and even though we had 100 guests it felt like we were just surrounded by a few close friends and family because of the warm environment Susie’s ceremony created. She did a wonderful job, her calm, serene nature was so refreshing leading up to the wedding in such stressful times. She listened to what we wanted and really made it a true reflection of us. Susie is a blessing as a brilliant Celebrant.
