About Bernadette



Hello and welcome to my website. I am a registered Marriage Celebrant who conducts ceremonies in the Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Hunter Valley, Port Stephens and Central Coast regions.

I became appointed in 2005 and, as a full time ceremony-provider, I am passionate about creating ceremonies with a touch of magic, uniquely designed in accordance with your wishes.  I am a friendly, confident professional who enjoys life, especially being a celebrant.  The best part of my occupation is having the opportunity to work with people from diverse backgrounds and cultures.  I never stop learning, expanding on my skills and what I can offer to celebrate life’s special occasions.

I come from a Welfare and Hospitality background which may seem like worlds apart, but I believe they share a common link, the need to have excellent communication skills.  Those skills necessary to create an environment in which we can relax and openly confer, sharing ideas that reveal your personal style and that assist in building a bond of trust.



No matter what the occasion, celebrations are a wonderful way for family and friends to come together and there is nothing more inspiring than words of love and dedication expressed through ceremonies and rituals. As your celebrant my aim is to bring that special, personal sense of occasion to your proceedings, working with you to create not only an unforgettable day but also a stress free experience, with a touch of fun along the way.

Whether it’s a formal, casual, large or small event, you will receive the highest standard of service in designing something that is distinctly you.


Ceremonies  for  Lifes Special  Moments  





Join me for an obligation free get together to discuss how I can help you to create a ceremony that reflects you and the occasion, a celebration of love and life delivered with style and commitment.

As well as Memorable Weddings I also Conduct:

Baby Naming Ceremonies: Naming and welcoming the next generation, honouring the family matriarchs, patriarchs and appointing the child’s guardians/godparents.


Commitment Ceremonies: For those who are unable to legally marry due to religious, cultural or legal reasons.


Renewal of Vows: Celebrating the love that bought the couple together and a dedication to their future.


Celebration of Life/Funerals: A tribute to a life well lived for all the family members, including your beloved pet: as man/woman’s best friend why should they be left out.

Special Occasions: Such as Coming of Age, Engagements, House Blessings, Anniversaries, Retirements and Birthday Celebrations. ​

Will your ceremony be all you hoped for?
