Our Story

About Coleene

I relocated north to Mission Beach in 2009 to be closer to Kylie and her then babies.

Becoming a celebrant has been an enjoyable part of my relocating and one of those life changing decisions. I now have a tropical lifestyle enjoying working with people at such a special time in their lives.

My professional life to date has been interesting and varied …including journalism, regional radio and corporate management. A past member of “Women’s Chiefs of Enterprise”, a recipient of the “Woman of Substance” award: first female in Queensland to be inducted as a Member of Rotary. However this is my best job ever.

I have a warm friendly personality, a sense of humour, am calm, relaxed and well organised. Most importantly people know I am reliable and they can trust me. I am sensitive and attentive to your needs, and look forward to giving you the best ceremony experience you could wish for.

I’ll never take for granted how fortunate I am to be invited into people’s lives and entrusted with an important and very rewarding responsibility, and I am grateful for that!

Please contact me at any time to see if I’m available on your wedding day. 

Via this site, Email, phone or I’d love to meet you if we can arrange.

When you make contact we can have a non-obligation chat .

About Kylie

As a professional wedding photographer for over 10 years I had the privilege of witnessing and gaining insight into the world of weddings! The most memorable being those that were engaging and personal.

Upon becoming a wedding celebrant in 2009, I knew that my passion was to engage people in the bride and groom’s excitement, their personalities, their love and the significance of witnessing two people choosing one another, above all others.

I believe the wedding ceremony is the benchmark for the rest of the day’s celebration. Your wedding should be fun, memorable, touching and most of all engaging and enjoyable for all involved.

My friends and colleagues describe me as friendly, genuine, funny and professional.

I balance life with yoga: stand up paddle boarding: especially love live music with friends and great food. I read voraciously and have two creative teenagers that bring such love and pride into my life.

My previous experience in theatre, television presenting and as a professional singer ensures I deliver a polished, interesting and memorable wedding ceremony.

I truly appreciate that I am invited to share the beginning of a couples’ ever after, I don’t take this privilege lightly in fact I am very grateful for the rewarding responsibility.


Coleene thank you for such a beautiful and memorable wedding. It all feels like a blur of happiness at this point. I am grateful you put so much thought and effort into our ceremony, into the story, and helping calm my David when he was rushing around like a madman. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. You will always be remembered when we think of our special day. Many blessings to you and take care… you’re living it rough over there in that beautiful country.Big hugs,
David and Lexi
We were so excited for Kylie to be our celebrant. The ceremony was full of touching moments and laughter. Adding our personal details within the ceremony made it absolutely special. We were so impressed with Kylie’s style of delivering the ceremony and would definitely recommend her as a friendly, organised and a professional celebrant! Thank you darling for a lifetime of memories xoxo

Coleene wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you for providing a beautiful and perfect ceremony for John and I on Saturday. So many of our family and friends came up to me after the ceremony saying it was one of the best they had ever attended. Thank you so much for providing the beautiful print out of our ceremony so that we have a keepsake and can look back on. Once again thank you so much for helping us have the best day of our lives and being the perfect celebrant. You were an absolute pleasure to work with. Cheers

Kylie married us at Paronella Park .We felt so incredibly lucky to have this amazingly kind lovely lady marry us in such a beautiful part of the world. Kylie made the whole planning process from 2 states away so easy and she helped us create a loving beautiful and memorable ceremony. She listened to our thoughts, provided guidance where needed, but most of all created a beautiful loving atmosphere on the day. What an amazing soul you are Kylie. Thank you so much. Xxxxxx
