Hi, I'm Karen Brown and its an absolute pleasure to be a Civil Marriage Celebrant, authorised by the Attorney General's Department to solemnise marriages in Australia according to the Marriage Act of Australia.
I have over 18 years professional experience as a confident articulate speaker and I enjoy creative writing so this led me to pursue my genuine passion to share in life's happy events and officiate at ceremonies.
I am a member of the Australian Marriage Celebrants Association and I attend conferences, professional development and regional meetings with my peers.
I am friendly, professional, well-presented and have a modern sense of style. I will make it easy for you to have the ceremony of your dreams by gathering details from you, so I design a ceremony specifically reflecting everything that is important to you. It is a privilege to create a personalised ceremony that looks, sounds, and feels exactly as you want it ,importantly reflecting you as a couple, your values and any traditions or personal touches that will make your ceremony perfect.
Your ceremony will be unique to you both, not a generic boring ceremony, but one that is created just for you, any way you want it to be, whether it be romantic, fun, traditional or modern, it will reflect your wants and dreams.
So, whether you are planning a wedding, commitment ceremony, renewal of vows, baby naming, milestone anniversary or birthday celebration I will tailor it specifically to your style and always in close consultation with you.
I am based in the foothills of the Blue Mountains, but I will happily meet with you at a location convenient to you. I have no travel issues and I can perform marriage ceremonies anywhere in Australia, at any location you select for your ceremony - on any day or time.
Your ideal location, whether it be a lavish elegant event or a small personal celebration will be special, memorable and enjoyable.
Appointments and meeting locations will be scheduled to suit you; it's all about quality, from the planning stage to finishing with a wonderful memorable day!
