Civil Celebrant
Karen Cole
Celebrant background: My background was in retail, mainly sewing and craft. My husband and I were owner operators of sewing machine business's and craft shops. I have always been interested in creating beautiful things, whether it be cross stitch pictures or teddy bears. 
My recycled vintage fur bears have found homes all over the world. My knowledge of creating these wonderful bruins has been passed on through my teaching others' my craft. This love of creating also comes into writing, something that I really enjoy is writing a story for my couples and the journey that has brought them to the point of saying I DO in front of their friends and family.
Why I'm a celebrant: Being a bit of a romantic, I just love that I am able to be involved in joining a couple in the beginning of their life's journey together. It is a privilege and an honour to be asked to share a couples very special day and to help make their dream ceremony a reality.
Treasured memories: Being able to hold a babe in my arms who was the product of a couple who's wedding I had performed. Witnessing the love on the faces of my brides and grooms when they say there vows, the occasional tears, when one or other of the couple become a bit emotional. The look of awe on the faces of a couples children, when they join in the ceremony for their mum and day, just beautiful !
Tips : If your wedding is to be out of doors, always have a plan B ready just in case of a change in the weather. If you have your children attending the ceremony, it is a good idea to have another adult to care for them, as little ones can become bored and fractious. Please be on time for your ceremony, I will be there half an hour before as will most of your guests, you don't want to keep them waiting, especially if the day is hot !
and I'd like to say: Why not join me on the beautiful Gold Coast, where there are many wonderful locations and beautiful photo opportunities for your special day !
