Byron Bay Wedding Celebrant
Hi! Thanks for dropping by!
I’m Heidi, a wedding celebrant & MC delivering ceremonies and MC services for receptions all the way from Coffs Harbour to Byron, Gold Coast and beyooooonnnddd!
So, who am I and will I be a good fit for you as your celebrant?
In a nutshell, I’m married with 2 kids, 2 rescue dogs and 3 cows. We live on a bit of acreage in the hills behind Byron Bay, Northern NSW.
In my former career I was an Intensive Care Ambulance Paramedic in Sydney. Which gave me a lot of satisfaction- and taught me how to communicate effectively with a wide variety of people in all sorts of situations. I did a fair bit of media liaising during this time as well, which further enhanced my ease in front of the camera and speaking in public. When I needed a change of career, I thought to myself- what can I do where I’m using those skills, and still helping people, but in a purely happy environment? *LIGHT BULB MOMENT ENSUES*- I’ll become a wedding celebrant!
And that’s exactly what I’ve been doing for the past 12 years, and I’m fortunate enough to be able to do this now full-time.
12 years is a lot of time to get to know the ins and outs of the Marriage laws; but it’s also enabled me to become extremely adept at knowing the practicalities of what works and what doesn’t in a ceremony.
Here’s where the expertise of an experienced celebrant comes in. I’ll pick up on things and highlight things you may not have thought of- and it’s the details that can make all the difference!
So if it’s an elopement, a micro wedding, a big gig, an adventure wedding; if you’d also like me to MC your reception- I do it all!
BUT WHAT’S YOUR STYLE, HEIDI?
The lovely feedback I get from couples and guests is that I deliver my ceremonies with such warmth. I’m genuine. Authentic. That’s because I love what I do and when you’re passionate about your job, people can tell, and they warm to that.
But here’s what I want to emphasise- YOU are the stars of the day, and I will treat you as such!
Here’s my promises to you
I’ll inject just the right blend of light-heartedness alongside the beautifully crafted ceremony that I write, and that you deserve.
I dress with respect for the occasion and in line with your colour theme if applicable, (and of course, your dress code!)
Every ceremony I write from scratch; for you, encapsulating your uniqueness as a couple.
The ceremony I write for one couple may not remotely resemble the one I write for another.
It’s my job, along with your input, to work out what’s going to be appropriate and perfect for you.
Perhaps my Google Reviews can help you decide if I might be a good fit for you: as Olivia and Tom so kindly said,
“Heidi was the celebrant for our wedding and she was just AMAZING! We could not recommend her enough. She led us through the pre-wedding marriage process with ease and made us feel so comfortable. On the big day, she was just fabulous. She prepared and delivered an amazing ceremony that was so personalised to us. She was loving, funny and seamlessly guided us through so we didn’t have to worry about anything and we could just enjoy it. We are so glad that we had Heidi as our celebrant. Thank you Heidi xx”
And, if you are also after an MC for your reception I’d be very happy to do that for you as well! (Here’s some reasons why you might consider a professional MC for your reception).
I am a civil (non-religious) celebrant under Australian law through the Attorney-General’s Department.
