A Bit About Me…

I’m Tanya, a Melbourne girl who emigrated to the UK as a child but is now living in Perth and sporting a lovely British accent!

My Story

Following a lifelong career in the entertainment business, latterly on cruise ships, I decided to follow my heart into the arms of my soul mate, Neil, and leave the sea behind me so that we could start a new life together as a couple.

Changing direction meant trying to find a vocation that would give me as much joy as my previous role of Cruise Director had done and this was proving very challenging until a good friend of mine – an ex-colleague in fact, suggested that I retrain to become a Marriage Celebrant. As I pondered this advice I wondered how I had not thought of it before!

I have always been a great lover of people and worked out very early on in my life that making people happy makes me happy so this was in fact a very obvious choice. Since qualifying, every day gives me immense satisfaction – to be in the position to be able to assist people during some of the most important, poignant or memorable days of their lives fills me with great pride.

Of course, not all the ceremonies I conduct are happy. However, being able to impart some comfort to people during difficult times fills me with pride, knowing that you can help make things a little easier is always a wonderful feeling.

Whatever the reason for you getting in touch with me, I look forward to meeting you, getting to know you and helping you – whether its to assist you follow your dreams (whatever they may be) or to take the burden away during particularly challenging days, I am happy to help in any way I can. xx
