“I felt listened to … and respected for what we wanted.”
Sandy is a super warm and joyful person. I know her from a professional life where she is a captivating facilitator for groups of people, and more recently she was our wedding photographer. On our wedding day Sandy was much more than 'one of the creative experts' - I felt absolutely listened to, not judged and respected for what we wanted. She was super adaptable to changing plans and was also a very supportive pair of hands to help with any last minute adjustments. I am over the moon Sandy is now a qualified celebrant, I have no doubt she will bring a touch of magic to the lives of many diverse people on their special day.

“Reassurance, comfort and familiarity”
We chose Sandy to be our celebrant as she has a warmth about her, and a sparkle in her beautiful blue eyes. Her life experience brings reassurance, comfort and familiarity of an old friend.
A wedding day should be a party, not a performance, and we wanted someone who we knew would embrace this energy and have fun.

“Sandy is open-minded, loved by many and will be welcomed by the LGBT community as she is known, without doubt, as affirming of their lives and love.”
I have known Sandy for five years and she has provided professional and expert business coaching for me over that time. Her coaching has been of such quality that I have contracted her on a number of occasions to facilitate group coaching workshops with my teams. She has an engaging, upbeat and positive style, always willing to adapt to changing circumstances to meet our needs.
Sandy is a passionate photographer and produces beautiful photos, capturing the beauty of people of places. Sandy has taken my professional photos on two separate occasions and has a knack for putting people at ease, while finding the best settings and moods to get the best photos possible. Her ability to put people at ease and to coach people with confidence make her an expert celebrant.
Sandy is open-minded, loved by many and will be welcomed by the LGBT community as she is known, without doubt, as affirming of their lives and love.
I am delighted to recommend Sandy as a registered celebrant. She is authentic, and is able to read people and understand their needs, hopes and dreams. I have every confidence that she will deliver professional, caring, insightful, memorable special occasions.

I felt the session was one of our most productive and energising PD sessions to date.
Sandy facilitated a Whole Brain Technology session for our Executive Leadership Team. I felt the session was one of our most productive and energising PD sessions to date. I loved the energy that Sandy brings. The insightful and practical information shared and how it related to the Whole Brain methodology. I loved the tool, however it was the depth of knowledge, practical application and simple examples that means I can see it working in our team for our teams. I was so blown away by Sandy’s generosity and commitment to us and felt Sandy was very professional in her approach to each of our communication styles and collectively as a team. Sandy shared so much in such a short time. It was a real pleasure to meet and work with Sandy. I would highly recommend Sandy.
