My Unique Ceremony

By Joanne McLennan

I am a Northern Rivers and Gold Coast celebrant who will create a uniquely tailored and memorable wedding ceremony, vow renewal or naming day just for you.

Northern Rivers & Gold Coast Celebrant



Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, and as such, your celebrant should create a beautiful and unique experience which will be remembered and celebrated by all. That’s what I’m here for!


Same Sex Weddings

Love is love! I would love to be your same sex marriage celebrant, and can offer you a fun, supportive and uniquely tailored ceremony.  I am excited to offer you a legal marriage that can be celebrated your way.



Do you want a simple, no fuss, legals only marriage? Whether you live on the gorgeous Gold Coast or are traveling from interstate to escape the drama and expense of planning a formal wedding, this is a simpler, cheaper way to say "I do"!


Themed Weddings

Whether it’s just the two of you dressing up, you want to include your bridal party or even all of your guests, I am the Celebrant for you. I will dress up to match your theme and even tailor your ceremony as well!


Naming Days

Baby naming days can be held at your home, a park, or wherever you choose. This ceremony is a joyful, fun and unique event that will incorporate your family and friends.


Vow Renewals

You can recreate your wedding day or create a new, special day, the choice is yours! This Ceremony is similar to a wedding except there are no legalities involved, and you will be sure to rekindle those sparks of love, joy and excitement you felt on the day you were first married!



Grief is a natural response to the loss of a loved one, and the ritual of farewell and support that an end of life ceremony can provide, can be an important healing aspect for all involved.



Let me guide you every step of the way, so the whole process is easy, enjoyable and stress free.



Let’s meet up for a coffee and a chat about your ideas and vision for your ceremony, and what I can offer you. If we ‘click’, great! Let’s move on to the second step.



I learn more about your story and can answer all your questions as I share some super ideas and resources with you, so I can capture your true selves in a unique, hand-crafted ceremony just for you.



Once I’ve created your dream ceremony, I’ll deliver your perfect day, ensuring your family and friends enjoy a day filled with love, light and laughter!
