Kari nailed it. The ceremony had just the right recipe – humour, humility, warmth, respect and occasion – to make it a memorable affair. All of our guests were extremely impressed.

With many years of experience as a celebrant, entertainer and events manager, I have hosted a wide range of local and international ceremonies that have brought joy to the lives of many.

From intimate elopements, to the very first LGBTIQ wedding in Australia, I have held space for incredible multicultural weddings, to meaningful gatherings celebrating the life and death of loved ones.

Every experience is different, and by taking the artisan approach, your day is sure to be truly unique and special.

“We cannot recommend Kari highly enough – we found Kari initially as we were looking for a celebrant with Indonesian language skills. She turned out to be a wonderful bonus gift of an exceptional professional. From the very beginning, Kari offered her help & guidance whilst embracing and often improving on our own ideas. Kari was instrumental in the way we communicated with friends and family overseas during the ceremony and was a calming influence both leading up to and during the big day, going above and beyond her duties. Our guests too have commented and continue to do so on the wonderful, charismatic & professional way Kari conducted her duties on the day. Kari was by far one of the biggest reasons we can genuinely describe our wedding day as being perfect in every way and we will always fondly remember the role and influence of our fabulous celebrant!”
