“From our first meeting when you asked questions about our lives, our relationship story and our hopes and wishes for our special day, we knew we had made the right choice. “

Hi, I’m Keren and welcome to my page. I’d love to share my story about how I became a Celebrant.
Being a Celebrant complements my outgoing, positive personality and my genuine passion for people. It combines everything that is important to me in my life. My passionate values of love, family and bringing people together. The joy and satisfaction of helping couples weave and define their paths towards a lifelong journey of love and fulfillment and to be able to do this for others is such a blessing.
Speaking of blessings, I am a Mum to three gorgeous boys, a wife to an amazingly supportive man and a daughter to parents who have instilled in my sister and I the values of family, friendship and a deep sense of community.
It is my passion to be able to bring two people together in a customized fashion that suits both parties. When my husband and I were engaged, we found it a challenge to get married in a traditional sense, as we were from different faiths. Being Jewish and marrying my non-Jewish husband, I was unable to be married by a Rabbi. However it was important to us that we included the Jewish traditions, such as being married under a Chuppah, Breaking the Glass and reciting the Seven Blessings.
Since that time, helping couples facing the same challenges as I did is what fuelled my passion to become a Celebrant who combines the Cultural elements of various ethnicity’s within a single Ceremony.
Since 2009, I have proudly performed hundreds of Wedding Ceremonies, Naming Day Ceremonies and Commitment Ceremonies.
Each couple I meet is unique. So from a first meeting, by asking questions and getting to know the couple, I am able to make a ceremony personal, warm and fun.
I would love the opportunity to meet with you, to help you plan and be part of your special day.
