I have 3 gorgeous children, aged 16, 11 and 11 and two beautiful stepsons aged 15. This includes two sets of identical twins! (We had the cutest Bridal party at our wedding). Very much the modern family!
I live between two towns, Airlie Beach and Cairns, week on week off as my husband lives in Cairns and like many modern families, we both share living arrangements of our children with their adoring respective parents. Anyone who has ever had to be away from their partners is it at the mines, in the military or for any other reason will tell you that it is not at all ideal but we do what we can and as I always say, distance means so little when someone means so much.
hmmm, where to start...about me.
After graduating high school I did a 12-month exchange student program which led me to my first Japanese speaking job.....selling opals on Hamilton Island. Aged 18
This then led to becoming a Wedding Executive on Hayman Island, (Aged 19 - 20) followed by wedding planning on Hamilton Island for many years. Age 21 - 25 years.
Age 25. My ridiculously handsome son was born
Age 26. I had the privilege of being a Hostess on an 80ft Maxi yacht " Maxi Raggamuffin" where we did day trips to either Whitehaven beach or Diving at Blue Pearl Bay
Age 26-28 My young family then travelled around Australia in a Caravan with our 2 fun-loving staffies. This amazing journey took about 18 months before we settled in Hervey Bay.
Age 29. I was an Event Manager for 4 years taking care of Conferences, Wedding Receptions, Networking events, etc
Age 30. My sweetheart (ratbags) twin girls were born
Age 33. As it can happen, and, such is life, we went through some tough times but found that "light at the end of the tunnel" and came out the other side.
Age 34. We moved back to Airlie Beach (home) and I became a Wedding Stylist
Age 36. I finally found my calling and became a Marriage Celebrant
Age 36. Still age 36, I married my darling Husband.
Age 42. Present time and until death do I part - I will be officiating heartfelt ceremonies for couples from all over the world and from all walks of life and absolutely loving what I do. This is me.
For those who were wondering, no I don't have a slogan as such however if I did it would probably be something like...You will possibly forget my words, and you might forget how I spoke them, but you will never forget how I made you feel.
If you have any questions or would like me to arrange a phone call or video chat, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
