Hi, I'm Candice - thanks for visiting my page. I'm a registered Australian Marriage Celebrant (and a big supporter of Marriage Equality Australia). My home is Burleigh Heads on the Gold Coast, QLD, but I celebrate love across the Gold Coast, Tweed Coast, Byron Bay, Brisbane, Sunshine Coast... actually anywhere in Australia! I'm so proud to be a part of Hello May, Casuarina Weddings and WedShed - premier Australian Wedding Directories.
When I'm not out meeting beautiful couples, sharing my story and listening to yours, I like to spend my free time painting pictures and adventuring with my little family of five + my dog Frank. Growing up, I was always the quiet kid at school - the one that always blushed the quickest! But when I became a marriage celebrant I realised that we are all a little bit shy… that is, until we are around people who make us feel comfortable and relaxed. It's so important to me that on your wedding day, during the ceremony and in the preparations beforehand - that I am there to support you and keep you relaxed and stress-free from start to finish.
I believe I have the creativity and skills needed to help co-create a unique wedding ceremony that reflects your love story. If you are planning a large and elaborate celebration of marriage with family and friends or an elopement style wedding with just the two of you and a small crew, there are a few legalities that need to be said during the ceremony but the rest is up to you. When you add your personal touches- writing your own wedding vows, choosing the ceremony music that you love, practicing the much anticipated kiss… I'll be there to help you (except with the kiss). I love my job and I still get excited, nervous butterflies for my couples at every beautiful ceremony.
The wedding ceremony is the first moment you spent together as newlyweds. It kicks off the start of the celebrations, so let's make it great - and keep it real and unique.
You may or may not know what you want already so let's get together and you can share your love story with me. If you would like me to be a part of your special day, I'd love to hear from you.
