Hi there, I’m Andrea – a fully authorised Civil Marriage Celebrant from Sydney, where I live with my husband, two kids and our cat.
My celebrant journey began in 2012 when I was inspired to complete my celebrant studies while on maternity leave. I had enjoyed my career in marketing but knew I wanted something where I could flex my creative muscle and make a difference in people’s lives. I became registered in 2013 and have been marrying couples all over Sydney ever since.
I take a modern approach to crafting ceremonies. I work with couples to help them define their vision and focus on their values to create a ceremony that is a true reflection of them and their relationship.
My style is relaxed, genuine and heartfelt. I’m not there to entertain, but to facilitate a really amazing moment between you and your lover. My ceremonies have been described as warm, friendly and engaging, and my personality as calm, caring and considered.
What I love most about being a celebrant is being able to exceed a couple’s expectations of what their marriage ceremony can be. By turning what could be a mere formality into a highlight of their day is incredibly rewarding.
As well as bespoke marriage ceremonies, I offer legals-only, elopement, renewal of vow and baby naming ceremonies. And in 2019 I launched Weekday Wedded Bliss after noticing the trend of couples not wanting a “wedding” but still wanting something a little more special than getting married at the registry office.
While I’m based in southern Sydney, I travel all over for ceremonies – the Southern Highlands, Blue Mountains, South Coast, Hunter Valley, Central Coast and beyond.
When I’m not marrying couples I love doing yoga, reading, cooking, gardening and dancing around the kitchen with my kids. My favourite place to be is the ocean, or right by it covered in suncream, sand and preferably with a drink in my hand.
If it sounds like I could be ‘the one’ for you, get in touch and we can start having a chat about your big day.

WHAT THEY HAD TO SAY
Andrea listened to our wishes and executed them so beautifully. The words she used and the way she presented our story was perfect! Nearly every guest at our wedding complimented the ceremony for its uniqueness and personalised nature. I cannot imagine a better ceremony for Marc and me. It truly represented who we are and our relationship together.
Andrea embraced the location of our wedding and was happy to travel for it. She was excited about our theme and had an excited attitude towards the outdoor nature of the ceremony which really put Marc and I at ease!
Andrea was kind enough to meet up with Marc and I several times before the ceremony. This really allowed us to fully understand every aspect of the ceremony clearly before the day. She also put up with our indecisive nature and slow nature by allowing us as much time as we needed to make changes to our ceremony!
Andrea truly is in the correct industry!
Our expectations were exceeded in every way. From the initial communications and consultations, through all of the paperwork and detailed planning and on the lead up and day of the wedding everything ran to perfection.
We honestly could not have imagined our ceremony any better than what you have helped us put together and led us through. We’d be lost without your help and wouldn’t know where to have started. You allowed us to perfectly tailor the ceremony to our needs and wishes and even guided our decisions and choices. Also a very good listener as I don’t believe you missed one detail which we mentioned.
The entire process was very professionally handled and made us feel really comfortable that we’re in such capable hands. You were the perfect match for our needs and the event we put together. A lot of this came down to personalities matching nicely, but also your professionalism, organization and preparation.
Thank you Andrea!
You were incredibly warm and professional through the whole process. You provided us with plenty of information on the different components of a ceremony and handled the legal requirements seamlessly. You made the whole process very simple which helped us to feel confident in our ceremony plan.
We especially loved how you pulled our individual stories together to paint a picture of our relationship. The tone reflected us perfectly with a lovely balance of humour and sincerity, making our intimate ceremony feel even more personal. We can’t thank you enough for your contribution to our day.
