Looking for a celebrant? Someone with the presence and experience to help you, and your guests, feel comfortable and relaxed on your special day?
My clients describe me as warm, friendly, respectful and knowledgeable. They tell me that I was a reassuring, steadying presence as I guided them through the entire process from planning to delivery of the ceremony. If this sounds good to you, please get in touch and let's have a chat.
What my clients have said..
The service was perfect. We didn’t have time to do a rehearsal but Ishara was so calm and guided us through the ceremony. It was an amazing day and it couldn’t have been more wonderful. Thank you!!
“We liked that Ishara had such a calm presence, weddings are such stressful events so to have some with a professional and peaceful presence was a bonus!!
Guests were delightfuly suprised by the meaningfulness of ceremony especially in light of our choice to not be ‘legally married’. The handfasting part of the ceremony was an
especially lovely touch.
Ishara put together a ceremony that we felt represented us and the overall experience was very special.”

We always wanted a very intimate outdoor ceremony with close family and friends.
Ishara’s experience, knowledge and recommendations helped us get there. She not only made suggestions on potential wedding locations, but also helped us with our wedding vows, making sure that those were align in tone and kept in secret until the moment we made our promises to each other on the ceremony. From the moment we messaged her enquiring assistance, through the time we first sat down with her till the end of our ceremony she showed dedication and professionalism. We could not have asked for a better celebrant and a more joyful ceremony. Would highly recommend her
Ishara recently performed a naming ceremony for my two young children,
Samson and Matilda. The ceremony was beautiful and heartfelt, and
Ishara spoke with resonance and composure.
The ceremony was put together in such a way that involved all who attended. A friend remarked she had attended other naming ceremonies that were just “someone at the front talking.” Ishara surpassed this by including not just myself and Andy, (my partner), but also grandparents, great grandparents, aunties, uncles and friends.
We met with Ishara on two occasions before the ceremony. She took great care in finding out how we wanted the ceremony to proceed, by providing various prayers, quotes and suggestions. Her manner was professional and warm.
Everyone who attended remarked on how unique and moving the ceremony was. My sister in law also commented that Ishara “let everyone have their space.”
Thank you Ishara for providing this service for us, it is an occasion that we will remember and cherish.
Ishara helped my wife & I renew our vows recently after 10 happy years of marriage and also carried out a naming ceremony for our 2 year old daughter.
From the initial contact via email; the planning meeting; the emails back and forth to arrange the details and finally the ceremony itself, Ishara worked out exactly what we wanted and provided it to us in a sincere, friendly and professional manner.
Ishara’s experience and thorough knowledge of all the different possibilities allowed us to personalise our ceremony and make it something special for our family and friends who attended. Something that we will never forget. Ishara was able to provide many items to complement the ceremony and add to the experience for the day.
Finally, when our next baby is ready for a naming ceremony, we won’t hesitate to contact Ishara to help with that too.
Ishara assisted both of us in planning and making our wedding the most perfect day. Her calming and peaceful nature was something that we both appreciated so very much and allowed us to feel confident and comfortable from the day we started planning the ceremony to the day when we ‘went live’ and put it all into practice in front of our friends and family. Because of Ishara’s spiritual beliefs and her acceptance and non-judgement, she was the perfect person to facilitate our ceremony that contained many symbolic rituals relating to shedding the all of the crap from our respective past lives and relationships and starting a new fabulous chapter together.
Both of us would not change a thing about our ceremony or wedding and Ishara was a major factor in making this the perfect day.
I would recommend Ishara as the ‘WA CELEBRANT OF CHOICE !’…
Thank you Ishara for everything you did to help us, and for being such an authentic, beautiful soul.
Thank you, Ishara, for designing and delivering a beautiful, meaningful and magical wedding ceremony for us yesterday. Miranda and I honestly loved it, enjoyed it and found it really spoke for our love and our commitment to one another. And our guests enjoyed it immensely, too – even the Rotto garbo, uninvited, but who waited to empty the bins till we’d finished!
Miranda and I both agree that it simply couldn’t have been better. Thank you so much Ishara.
Blessings to you from us.
Thank you SO SO much for our beautiful wedding ceremony. It was amazing. Most of our guests were moved to tears and we are still being told that our ceremony was the “best” ceremony they had been too. We cant thank you enough for all you did for us Ishara, you truly are a beautiful soul.

Ishara made planning our ceremony easy, she was attentive and understanding and created a ceremony that was beyond perfect for us. She was professional and calming throughout the whole process. We would highly recommend her.
“Ishara was very forthcoming, approachable and friendly and responded effectively to our needs.
Ishara has an amazing skill in compiling a truly unique naming ceremony. She provided resources of different religious and spiritual teachings so that the ceremony became meaningful to our family. She also espressed thoughts and feelings that we just mentioned in the interview but were not really aware of that this is relevant for us to express.”
The ceremony gave as a new depth and connection to our friends who attended the naming ceremony of our child.”

So you’re planning to marry? Congratulations! The basic legal process for getting married in Western Australia is really quite simple, and I would be delighted to guide you through it.
Maybe you are an unconventional kind of person. Or maybe you are in a non-traditional kind of relationship. Or maybe you are not ready to make it legal at this stage. If you would like an alternative wedding – a handfasting, a betrothal or a commitment ceremony, or some other form of ceremony to celebrate your union – you are in the right place…

I have been involved with designing and facilitating meaningful ritual and ceremony in a variety of contexts for over 25 years. In 2008 I became a registered marriage celebrant out of desire to share the benefits of my personal experiences with the power of ceremony with others in my community.
Many cultural traditions welcome a new child into her circle of family and community with a ceremony of some sort. I will work with you to create a unique ceremony reflecting your family values and beliefs and drawing on symbolic elements from any traditions which appeal to you.
As your celebrant, I want you to have the opportunity to say farewell in a way that is meaningful to you.. When one recalls a family member’s death, the circumstances of their death fades and the memory of the funeral and final goodbye is what remains.
I am a lesbian, and I welcome clients who identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender or intersex, whatever your ceremony needs.
