I was born in Sydney. I am the youngest of 8 children so family and family values are very important to me. Being the youngest in my family has enabled me to learn about relationships by observing my parents, brothers and sisters and seeing what is needed to make a good relationship work, such things as love, trust, compassion and compromise. I feel these learnings allow me to bring a warmth and understanding to your particular ceremony.
I have been married to my lovely wife Elaine for in excess of 30 years, during this time we have raised my stepson to the man he is today, a man of whom we are both very proud.
I moved to the Central Coast over seven years ago now and since coming here I quickly noticed the beauty here is not only visual, the people are so friendly. Umina is where I live and this is a wonderful place with a real village vibe and a real sense of community
Since becoming a Celebrant, I have performed countless marriage ceremonies and what a thrill it has been for me to experience the joy of what I do, whilst seeing lovers in love celebrating their commitment to each other through marriage. I have experienced the joy of performing Naming Day's for very proud parents and especially for those children of couple's I have married, along with a number of Commitment ceremonies.
My desire to become a Celebrant was driven by many reasons but one of my key reasons was so I could offer couples on the Central Coast a relatively young man who thrives on providing a very professional service where the couple can be nurtured through what seems to be a very daunting and stressful experience. I am so pleased to say that I appear to be achieving my goal, highlighted by couple's who have written testimonials for you to read in the testimonial page in my website.
Be confident that I will guide, comfort, and support you through a stressful and yet very special time in your lives.
