Experienced Celebrant

I have been helping people celebrate important events in their lives since 2004 and have delighted in the meeting of many different, wonderful people – and truly feel it is a privilege to be part of their very special occasions.

Since 2013 I have been creating and delivering Professional Development for celebrants on behalf of Gordon TAFE which is one of the few Registered Training Organisations approved by the Commonwealth Attorney-General’s Department to deliver the compulsory training Australia wide.

My other passions include art expression and editing a local magazine: Otway Life Magazine

I recently conducted an anonymous online survey with previous clients and am pleased to report a 100% satisfaction rate :)

Here are some of the responses:

Simply the Best! We will never forget it. Nettie, you were so beautiful and made the ceremony feel so special and individual to us. Thank you so much. x

Extremely well thought out and well presented funeral service.An excellent mix of formal and informal. Caring mixed with guidance. Thanks Nettie.

Nettie was so amazing, our ceremony was relaxed, and completely reflected our hearts, I have been so touched by the feedback from our family and friends specifically about how special our ceremony was and we have Nettie to thank for that.

Nettie is a friendly, warm and caring celebrant who brings richness and colour to any ceremony.

Nettie is an amazing celebrant. She is so friendly, relaxed and earthy, setting you at ease and creating a beautiful vibe on your special day. I’ve been to many ceremonies conducted by Nettie and everyone of them has been beautiful, personal and heart warming. I’m so glad we chose Nettie for our special day. Thank you xo

Nettie is amazing! She is so approachable and calm and it was an absolute pleasure to have her as our celebrant

 

After the ceremony guests asked me how I knew Nettie as they assumed she was an old friend because it was such a lovely personal ceremony.

We came all the way from the States to get married in Australia. Everything was managed smoothly via email abc Skype that it was only a brief interaction on Skype once we were in Australia, to finalize details. Amazing! We’re coming back to renew our vows with Nettie on 10/10/2015!

 

What attracted my partner and I to Nettie was that she presented as earthy and spiritual but not religious, artistic and a friend to the GLBTIQ community, which was really important for us in having close family and friends who identify as such. Our ceremony was beautiful, and Nettie was understanding in the changes we wanted to make to the wording of the scripts, and what changes we were unfortunately unable to make due to legal restrictions (Australia really is behind in social equality here). We would highly highly recommend Nettie to anyone who wants a ceremony that is about love and not restrictions, and someone who enjoys the artistic and quirky nature that Nettie brings.

Her relaxed style is fantastic. Doug

 

Thanks Nettie, we are still having a ball together. Your ceremony was very special to both of us. Love Dave and Andrea xxxx

Fantastic service from the planning through to the big day. I loved that you provided us with so many options for the ceremony and your level of communication was great. On the day you were relaxed, professional and helped us achieve the type of ceremony we were after.

 

Nettie was responsive to what we wanted to achieve and the inclusion of all our guest in to the ceremony. Our aim was to have a great time and Nettie helped us achieve this. Thank Nettie

Nettie was an amazing celebrant. She was very calming on the day before as well as the day of. Her professionalism and being very easy going helped me relax. I never had a worry about the ceremony on our day and I really wouldn’t change a thing. I highly recommend her for any wedding.

 

Nettie is the ultimate professional, she allays any fears you may have and ensures that your wedding is tailored to your needs, I would highly recommend Nettie

Nettie was very thoughtful and generous with the service that she gave us!

We couldn’t be happier with our beautiful celebrant Nettie. She made us laugh, made every single person at our ceremony comfortable, she’s great with kids .. I can’t praise her enough! Xox
