Marriage Celebrant Toowoomba

“When the person we simply can’t live without crosses our path, it is truly a gift, and the wedding that celebrates this is indeed a very happy and special occasion”


Your paths have magically crossed and now you are looking forward to the most important and exciting day of your life. The day when you lovingly commit yourself to each other and promise to support and grow together.

Toowoomba Marriage CelebrantHello. I’m Joan.
I am a fulltime legally qualified and professional marriage celebrant, appointed by the Attorney General in February, 2004, after undertaking an intensive course with one of Australia’s leading celebrant training schools. I have been a Justice of the Peace[qualified] since 1990, and a member of the Australian Federation of Marriage Celebrants since 2004.

Since 2004 it has been my pleasure to have married more than 400 couples from across Queensland and N.S.W., during the past six and a half years.
I have been voted by past brides and grooms as a finalist in the top ten celebrants in the Australian Bridal Institute awards [Qld] and also as a finalist in the Australian award for “Designer of Dreams”

I believe strongly in providing a personal touch to your wedding. With long time journalism experience, I will create a romantic, intimate, personal and relaxed marriage ceremony.
Your wedding day is about you and is a day that the two of you share together or with your family and friends. A day that must be perfect, as it is a day that can never be recaptured. It is very important that the ceremony be created especially for you and I have sample ceremonies, vows, quotes and readings and special rituals such as candle lighting, sand pouring, knot tying or any other tradition you wish to include to help you in choosing a ceremony that truly reflects your personality, relationship and taste.

I have assisted to arrange ceremonies for couples from many different countries and I am only too happy to personalise your marriage ceremony, including customs from your country.

My assurance to you is that I am friendly, relaxed and obliging to all people involved in your day. I have a deep respect for your wishes and rights and I am acutely aware of the social and cultural values of ceremonies.
I have a high level of dress sense and always endeavour to dress appropriately for the individual wedding.
I have a  good sense of humour and having been a public speaker for many years have clear  diction and  expression.

I will remove any stress and strain from the day, create a relaxed atmosphere enabling all to feel comfortable.  

My services to you are all the assistance you require as well as  a complete choice of ceremony.



  • I will supply you with appropriate research reading material and help you prepare your ceremony.
  • Relaxed meetings [usually two] where we can discuss all your wedding requirements and unlimited consultation personally, by e-mail or phone.
  • I will carefully and legally handle all your documentation and the acquisition of a copy of your marriage certificate.
  • A guarantee that no other wedding will be booked so close that I arrive late or rush out to be elsewhere.
  • I will provide a table with linen cover, two chairs , with covers, for the  signing.
  • I use a state of the art portable P.A. system to allow all guests to hear the ceremony and the P.A. will play your choice of music for the ceremony , on your C.D or I.Pod.
  • You will be presented with a presentation certificate of your ceremony and a decorated  book containing your ceremony as another memory of that special day.

A civil ceremony is a sensible and meaningful way of formally establishing a marriage relationship.
It is based on the value of human relationships, appropriate cultural values and symbols, and the strength of the marriage bond.
Personal commitment by a couple is enhanced by their own involvement in the preparation of the ceremony.


“Let experience and knowledge be your best friend”

You are the thought that starts each morning

The peaceful conclusion to each day

You are all that i do

And everything I say

You are the smile on my face

the twinkle in my eye

The  warmth inside my heart

The fullness in my life

You are the hand that's laced in mine

And the coat upon my back

You are my friend, my love

My shoulder to lean on

You are my bright and honest friend

You are the one that holds me tightly

When I really need to cry

You are the dimple in my cheek

The ever constant tingle in my soul

You are all I ever wanted

You are all I'll ever need

You are all I've ever dreamed of

You are all of this to me
