Kari ~ artisan celebrant
for weddings, funerals and occasions
You’re seeking a ceremony that’s a perfect fit for you, your vibe, your people.
I’ll give your day a bit of magic and care for you along the way.
Your celebrant for….
- a memorable, unforgettable, heartfelt ceremony.
- a relaxed and super friendly, yet professional approach.
- a unique occasion or wedding in Maleny, Montville, Flaxton or beyond the Sunshine Coast Hinterland and coastal beach areas.
- your inspired ceremony or sparkling elopement with meaningful words, delightful rituals, fun & laughter – for you. Ask me how.
Over a creative career, I have been a teacher, musician, artist, potter, and a frog! (yes you read that right) and dance tango for fun! The artisan approach allows freedom to create unique and colourful moments of meaning. Allow me to apply the artisan approach to your event. Or ask me about kissing a frog!
“Kari nailed it. Just the right recipe – humour, humility, warmth, respect and occasion – a memorable affair.” Emma & Paul
What ceremony do you want to create?
Your event: it’s all about you
Together we will craft the occasion you wished for. It will be fun for you and everyone, a bit different, or a tad creative. You can include cultural traditions in your wedding ceremony or make new ones. Divulge your plans to me, your wishes, your dreams, and I’ll share ideas I come up with to match.
If you’re not yet sure about what you want, I can help you with the processes of identifying what’s important to you, and creating a ceremony that expresses it in a meaningful way. I can help you add your personal touch, and give you ideas on how to include special people in different ways. Include your culture, your language. I speak Indonesian and French, and am happy to incorporate other languages of choice or multicultural rituals.
I realise how important this day is for you, so let’s meet to talk about your plans. Anything’s possible, just ask your celebrant!
