Sandy Millar - celebrant, photographer, coach

A celebrant crafts and delivers your story, for marriages and civil unions, funerals, and other significant life events. With a background as an author, blogger, and photographer, I’ll work collaboratively with you and your family to create a ceremony powerful enough to make you laugh, to make you cry.

After years behind the lens - photographing weddings, babies, families and friends - I know what works, and can capture the essence of your special day with a natural and relaxed feel. If you’d prefer a tiny wedding, I have a ceremonial space perfect for elopements. And if you’d like some photos, I can do those for you too.

Let’s get together to see if we’re a match. I’m professional yet warm, always open to hearing what you want - and providing information and resources if you’re stuck for ideas! Together, we’ll create memories to last a life time.


Weddings & Civil Unions


Weddings and civil unions are the happiest times of our lives. Explore how I can create a bespoke ceremony for you and your partner, sharing your story - making you laugh, making you cry.

Naming Ceremonies


A baby changes your life forever. Capture the early days with beautiful images, and mark the birth with a customised naming ceremony. Get in before it’s too late … these littlies grow up fast!

Funerals & Memorials


At the most difficult time of your life, I offer a mix of both compassion and practical advice. I can support you through this tough time, and create a ceremony to celebrate the life of your friend or family member.
