About Lynda

English born, I have been an Australian Citizen for over 40 years. I have been formally trained as a Celebrant and have qualifications in all areas of Celebrancy.   As well as being an Authorised Celebrant, I am also a Registered Nurse with a specific interest in Palliative and Dementia Care.

Through my professional work, I have come to understand just how unique we all are.  We each have specific needs, choices and beliefs making us “unique” in every sense of the word.  I have an empathetic nature which serves to enhance my understanding of the many passages, thresholds and milestones that occur throughout our lives.

I take pride in the fact that I am open minded and very versatile when it comes to the weddings I perform.  It is because of this, I am fairly sort after, particularly when it comes to weddings which are well, just a little bit different.

Excellent communication is paramount when planning a ceremony, so it is important that you are able to contact me no matter where, no matter when.  You can contact me via telephone, mobile, e-mail or Skype.  If for any reason I am unavailable, you may leave a message or e-mail me, and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

Performing Weddings in
Sunraysia (Mildura)  •  Swan Hill  •  Central Goldfields  •  Macedon Ranges (VIC)

Together we will strive to make your special day, a day to remember.  Whether it be a renewal of vows, commitment, naming, funeral or wedding ceremony, I will provide you with samples of various ceremonies I have written, along with appropriate words and suggestions for that “something extra.”

Being a Civil Marriage Celebrant is my passion.  As your Celebrant, I promise to walk along side of you, guiding you every step of the way. Together, we will work to ensure your special day is meaningful, loving and memorable in every way.
