Love Letters

"Thank you Catherine for being part of our special day! Upon first meeting you, we knew we needn't look further for our Marriage Celebrant. Your beautiful down to earth personality, guidance and professional organisation of our ceremony, was so very appreciated."
Steph and Brent
"The service Catherine provided exceeded our dreams! She made us feel like our day was the most important event she had ever been part of."
Tanya and Charlie
“Words cannot express how grateful we are that we found you! We feel so blessed that you married us. Not only did we find Sydneys best and most professional celebrant, but we also found a friend. ”
Robert and Mads
“We loved, loved, LOVED the ceremony Catherine put together. Everything about the actual day was perfect - relaxed, touching and humorous. So many guests commented on how amazing our ceremony was and that it was so well balanced ie funny, emotional and entertaining. We were so happy with everything!"
Albert and Jeanine
“Catherine was amazingly helpful, professional and a wonderful addition to our special day. Catherine prepared the ceremony, ran it by us and made all the little changes we wanted with no fuss. It felt like Catherine was a family friend performing the ceremony for us. The Celebrant is such an important part of your day and we highly recommend Catherine to marry you!!!"
Phoebe and Rhys
“With so many elements to plan for your big day, Catherine made things so easy, and her true gift is making you feel so calm and at ease on the day”
Sally and Doug
“We felt so at ease from the moment we met you and you had so many great suggestions for creating the perfect ceremony for us. We can recommend you highly enough”
Ellen and Craig
​ “Choosing a Celebrant was one of the most difficult decisions was had to make. 'How do you find a stranger to talk sincerely about you as a couple?' But from our first meeting, Catherine's enthusiasm and passion shines brightly! ”
Deborah and Leon
“Catherine, we cannot thank you enough. You are such a beautiful and caring soul, which made us feel so comfortable during the ceremony, because we had you there to guide us. So many of our guests asked if you were a close family friend, because you made it seem as if we'd known you forever. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our day. ”
Maddy and Bryce

Your Sydney Celebrant-Catherine Kennedy

Hey lovely people! For over 15 years, I've had the absolute pleasure of being a marriage celebrant and let me tell you, it's not just a job, it's my calling! Being a celebrant fills my heart with so much joy and fulfilment that I never knew was possible. The best part of my job? Working with my couples to plan their perfect ceremony, however that may look, and then seeing their gorgeous smiling faces on the happiest day of their lives! Being a celebrant isn't just about fulfilling a role, it's about being a part of a magical moment in the lives of two people in love. And let me tell you, there's nothing better than that feeling!

Friday afternoon on the harbour….this is how we do it! ☀️🥂
On Valentines Day, I thought it was the best day to share these stunning images by @bedfordphotography of Sally and Craig’s Oak Park Wedding. And wow… the florals from @nunuau. Amazing ❤️🌹❤️🌹
It was a perfect sunset wedding🌅 for Maddy and Sam at one of my favourite locations, Darook Park Cronulla 💕 

And it was made even more special when a boat load of fun loving locals, decided to play full blast, in the middle of the ceremony, Billy Idols “White Wedding”. Thankfully they only played it for about 10-15 sec at full volume,  and Maddy and Sam thought it was rather funny and a great memory for their wedding day. 🎵❤️🎶🎼❤️

I was, however, a little nervous for the rest of the ceremony as they could have played any kind of inappropriate song ( there is a certain AC/DC sing that would not have been a great choice,  unless you have a really good sense of humour😜😝) 

Congratulations Maddy and Sam. Sunset nuptials on the banks of Port Hacking are pretty epic. ❤️💕❤️💕❤️

When the secret is no longer a secret! 🤫 ❤️
And such a lovely story for Coleen and Kingsley’s wedding ceremony in December 2023,  and great example of keeping things simple but still so very heartfelt. 💕💕

I went to high school with Coleen’s sister, so I met Coleen when I was a teenager. I recently reconnected with Coleen,  when her family asked me to officiate their beautiful mums funeral back in Oct 2023. Such an honour to help farewell a beautiful soul who I had known from my high school days. 

It was after her mother’s service, that Coleen and Kingsley decided that after 35 years of life and love; children and grandchildren; it was time to get married! Yep…35 years! 

As Kingsley said in his fabulous vow…
”You don’t just jump straight in. There is a courting process,  but maybe 35 years was stretching it a bit.” 😁All said with a big smile on his face while holding back the tears. 

I married them in the family home where they all grew up, and where their beautiful mum lived for some 65 years. Amazing. 💕

But ….. they didn’t tell anyone they were getting married… not even their adult children so there was an extra layer of privacy and excitement surrounding their ceremony. FYI… everyone knows now. 👍🏻❤️

After the ceremony we enjoyed champagne, they cut a small cake from a local bakery and I had lunch with them at a local cafe! Now that’s a wedding! 💕Simple, sweet but so very beautiful. And can I tell you…. There were plenty of tears. 

A belated congratulations to these 2 gorgeous humans Coleen and Kingsley who are each other’s  best friend, and who have promised to finish this crazy roller coaster of life together. 💕💕❤️💕💕❤️💕💕

It’s ok to think outside the square when you are planning a loved one’s farewell. There are more and more venues these days that welcome gatherings for funerals and memorial services. 
Today’s Memorial Service @tumblingwatersretreat was the perfect alternative for a family saying goodbye and celebrating a much loved and very well respected man.

Memorial Service at the stunning @tumblingwatersretreat 

A stunning location and an alternative to the traditional venues you may consider for a Memorial Service or Funeral. It was so peaceful for those that attended. 
It’s 2024, and it’s time to think differently about how you farewell your loved one. ❤️🙏🏻
