My name is Catherine Shelley and I am an Australian Commonwealth Government Authorised Civil Celebrant.
Only authorised (registered) marriage celebrants, have the authority to perform marriages in Australia. A civil marriage celebrant, in Australia, is a private person authorised by the Australian Government, to perform legal civil marriages in a dignified and culturally acceptable manner, for those who do not wish to choose a religious ceremony.
I can, as a celebrant, also serve those who have religious beliefs, but do not wish to be married in a church, temple or mosque. I therefore, do not come from the standpoint of belief or non belief; I offer my services professionally and on the principle that my own beliefs and values, are irrelevant.
I trust you will enjoy my website. If you have any questions at all, that you would like to ask me personally, it's as simple as sending your queries by utilising the immediate email facility
