Powerful emotions accompany us through the milestones of our lives. And in celebrating those milestones, in sharing them with the people closest to us, we can convey those emotions through language.


I’m passionate about creating individual, memorable ceremonies that live on in our hearts long after the special moment has passed.  

At Eternal Flame Ceremonies, my desire as a civil celebrant is to help you tap into and express your most heartfelt feelings through well-chosen words—those spoken by you, and those by me.

The ceremonies I can help you create include:

  • Weddings, including Same Sex Weddings and my ‘Petite and Sweet‘ package, for those watching their budget
  • Commitment Ceremonies
  • Renewal of Vows
  • Naming Ceremonies
  • Funerals

Or any other ceremonial occasion!


Within your ceremony, we can create a sub-ceremony, such as:

  • Handfasting
  • Sand Ceremony
  • Unity Candles
  • Hand Blessing
  • Time Capsule
  • Chinese Tea Ceremony
  • Other Cultural Ritual

Or you may have your own ideas!

What can you expect from me? Enthusiasm, humour and compassion. I don’t just hear—I LISTEN to what you want and work hard to help you capture your most personal vision. Together, we will create memories that will live vividly in your heart and in the hearts of your friends and family for life! This is my goal. This is my passion.

About Kathryn

How we see ourselves can differ somewhat from how others see us. Some have told me I’m bright and sunny, with an ever-present smile and laugh. Others have said I’m a bit of a flower-child, groovy and cool. As for how I see myself, I would say I am a deep thinker (with definite hippie tendencies!) whose outer, effervescent persona often hides the empathetic and compassionate person within.

By the time I was 10 I had lived in three countries and attended many schools in each. I learned to make friends quickly and grew up sharing friendships with people of many different races and religions. During my 30 years of professional life I have worked in a wide variety of office environments, from law to retail to real estate. I engaged closely with people from all walks of life—a huge array of backgrounds, personalities, and sexual orientation. These experiences have helped me shape a curious and open-minded attitude towards the impressive kaleidoscopic nature of people. When we meet, what you see is what you get!

Look at my ‘Testimonials‘ to read what my clients say!

Same Sex Marriage!  Yes, Yes, Yes! 

I am so thrilled for all of you from the Gay and Lesbian community at this sensible, long-overdue decision. I can soon conduct a wedding ceremony for you!  Get your booking in quickly!  Your rights as human beings have finally been recognised. Well done to all those forward-thinking ‘Yes’ voters. And a personal congratulations to all those Gay and Lesbian people I have met over the years, worked with and that I am proud to call my friends. I think of you at this time.
