After 23 years in the Royal Australian Navy, I completed my master's degree in human resource management and then worked for over 15 years in various Government Departments. At the end of 2018 I left the public service and studied to become a marriage celebrant. I now work full-time as a civil celebrant.
My wife and I were married a few years ago in our back garden at a pirate party! We kept it a surprise from almost all our guests (immediate family knew) and then were married in front of them in full costume. It was a fun night and such a great ceremony. It was so much fun that it wasn't difficult for me to consider becoming a celebrant myself.
I had many opportunities for public speaking in my former careers including presenting at conferences. My approach is friendly, relaxed and entertaining. This makes my ceremonies that much easier for participation by everyone and I thoroughly enjoy planning and scripting these ceremonies with the couple at the centre of it all.
