From Sweet & Simple to Grand Occasions …

As a Wedding Celebrant, it doesn’t matter whether it’s a simple ceremony in a backyard, your favourite beach or a grand wedding in a distant location,  we will work together to design a ceremony especially suited to your occasion and the budget. I love working with couples on wedding ideas, and I’ll bring your plans to life.

Simple Ceremonies

If all you want is a fun, stress free, easy wedding then this is the option for you.  A Simple Wedding is for couples that want a legally binding ceremony without the extravagant extras, yet still memorable and significant, of course all the legal documentation is includedAnd you can choose any location around Sydney!   Just call me to make sure I’m available on the day and I will answer any questions that you have.

Bespoke Wedding Ceremonies

I love working with couples on wedding ideas, and I’ll bring your plans to life. Together we will work to design a ceremony especially suited to your occasion and budget.

LGBTIQ Weddings

I am a proud supporter of marriage equality in Australia. Love is love. It takes no notice of age, gender, sexuality, race, religion, background or culture. Now, finally after marriage equality, nothing makes me happier than working with LGBTIQ couples to make their dream-wedding day come true!


Peter and I would like to say thank you so much for making our wedding so special. Your help in planning, for listening what we really want and for your patience and effort on the day of our wedding was much appreciated. Feedback from our guests acknowledged the professionalism and humour of your delivery which made the day. Our very best wishes, Peter and Evan

Monica provided us with an exceptional service. She made us feel so comfortable and made sure the ceremony was exactly what we wanted. She was so helpful and always catered for our needs especially when we were so indecisive. She was able to combine the legal requirements of the ceremony with our cultural needs effortlessly.

Setareh and I would love to thank you for the great job you did at our wedding as the celebrant. We both had the best time and you helped make it a memorable day. Thanks again.

Setareh & David

Monica was the most wonderful warm and caring celebrant. We wanted to have just a small simple wedding and Monica understood everything we were asking for. She made the day so special and we felt really comfortable with her, like she was part of the family.

Melissa & Tony

When I contacted Monica to act as a celebrant I did not expect to find a woman who was fun, caring and helpful, nothing was too hard for Monica, in fact she made the wedding so special. She was organised, punctual and provided flair and sophistication to the service. She is a person who I would love to see again. You can’t go wrong with Monica.

Other Ceremonies & Rituals

Renewal of Vows, Baby-Namings,  Graduations, Birthdays, Life-Change Ceremonies, New Home or Business,  Retirement

You may simply need a celebrant to act as an MC, or you may need ideas and planning too.

From small gatherings at home to grand ceremonies, I can help you to plan a ceremony to suit the occasion and the budget.

Funerals & Memorial Ceremonies

Nowadays funeral services can take many forms, from the traditional service held in a chapel or by a graveside, to a wide choice of ceremonies and rituals celebrating a life well–lived, or you may wish to hold a living funeral where everyone has a chance to say ‘Goodbye’.

Whether you simply require a Celebrant to introduce the Order of Service or to design a ceremony or ritual, I can help you to plan the occasion and offer a choice of poems, hymns or music.

I am based in Sydney but I’m happy to perform ceremonies anywhere in Australia or overseas.

‘Thank you again, Monica, I know that Mum would have been really happy with you conducting her service’.  Ann
