About Me - Ph: 0419 675 208

Hi - My name is Judy Mannion and I am a professionally trained authorised marriage celebrant and I live on the Gold Coast. I am happy to travel north to Brisbane and south to Byron Bay and anywhere in between to be your celebrant.

My idea of the perfect wedding is to have a beautiful, sentimental, ceremony to complement your day. A  ceremony  that expresses your deep feelings and love for one another and is about you personally Your part will be to enjoy your day with the Peace of Mind that you will have the unique ceremony that you wished for.

You may choose to have your ceremony on the beach, in a park, in a private garden, home or function centre. Wherever it is it will be my pleasure to adapt the ceremony to whatever surroundings you choose.
