More About Us


A ceremony is about coming together to acknowledge a change that’s taking place and to mark its significance. At times when family and friends join in support of a new baby ‘s arrival as it is given it’s name or to celebrate the expanding  family. There are wedding’s along the way and of course finally when the life of a loved one who has passed, brings us together in sorrow and celebration of their life lived.

If we choose not to have a traditional church service, then we can mark these special events with a ceremony appropriate to the occasion and make it dignified, uplifting and truly memorable.

The Civil Celebrant Company comprises of myself, Suzi Lauder & Catherine Thompson and our combined skill set offers a vast array of experience and professionalism to an industry that has for years had a more traditional approach to Weddings, Funerals and Christenings.

We aim to meet the needs of people with different beliefs, traditions and cultures, providing a more personal, unique and less restrictive celebration. Whilst the necessary legal paperwork is still required, we are free to co-create your ceremony, enabling you to choose your vows, select the right wording, style, poetry, music, songs or whatever is meaningful to you. If you cannot find exactly what you are looking for, we can write it for you, this means your ceremony is exactly as YOU want it to be and as unique as you are.

In addition, we offer the services of some of our colleagues over the years, they comprise of the most talented freelance musicians, singers, voice over artists, professional writers and they are available to The Civil Celebrant Company and you.  We invite you to read our personal profiles for more information about us as individuals, our personal skills, our life experiences and individual talents.
