Catherine Styles Civil Celebrant
Celebrating all of life's special moments
WOMINJEKA/Welcome! In the spirit of reconciliation I Catherine Styles Civil Celebrant acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. I pay my respect to Elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today. During my Ceremonies I respectfully and lovingly acknowledge that we follow in the footsteps of our First Nations people and that we are gathered on the traditional country of the Bunurong people of the Kulin Nation. It is an honour to witness the wisdom of their living culture which continues today. I recognize that ceremonies of celebration have taken place on this land for many thousands of years, I thank the ancestors for their care of this land and the rich history on which our stories are built.
A creative, confident and relaxed Marriage Celebrant ready to get you hitched, whatever your style or vibe may be.
A bit about me.
Kiwi born, my family and I reside on the beautiful Bass Coast, roughly an hour down the M1 from Melbourne. A spectacular location, we are treated to swimming beaches, rock-pools, giant sand dunes and hiking bush-lands galore, whilst still only a short drive to Melbourne City or local malls for retail therapy. Being so close to the water seems trivial for some but being from New Zealand it is an absolute necessity. There is nothing more awe-inspiring then a sunset over the open water in my opinion. I am a lover of banter. I’m a creative and enjoy all things arts, crafts and DIY. I love trying to tackle home renos, going on adventures seeing new things and meeting new people. I personally think being a Celebrant is the best job in the world. Who doesn’t love dressing up, going to spectacular breath taking locations and Celebrating with a loved up couple on one of the best days of their lives. Is there anything more joyous?
