Gold Coast & Brisbane Marriage Celebrant ~ 0416252869
Hello from Shauna Rowe …. your countdown to happiness!
Thank you for popping over to my site …
Born and raised in Brisbane, the youngest of 3 girls, I had the idyllic childhood. Holidays on the Gold Coast and afternoons spent studying classical ballet. At 16 I was accepted into the Australian Ballet School. This meant leaving my family and heading to Melbourne to study dance for 2 years. I am still friends today with the other 3 Queensland girls who were also accepted during my intake.
Throughout my professional dancing career I was fortunate enough to travel the world and visit many amazing countries. This has given me a beautiful richness and appreciation of different cultures and their traditions! Therefore with ease and grace I have helped numerous local, overseas and interstate couples organise their Gold Coast Wedding, Same Sex Wedding, Renewal of Vows Ceremony or a memorable Baby Naming Ceremony.
I am happily married to a great guy who still makes me laugh. He’s a keen surfer, loves to travel and fortunately enjoys ballet and live shows as much as I do. He has encouraged and supported me to follow my dream of becoming a full-time Marriage Celebrant and is always ready to be my roadie should the occasion arise.
However, my greatest achievement is my daughter (sorry Jeff) …. I am so proud of the woman she has become, her achievements and love her positive outlook on life. Feeling especially blessed as I recently became an “Oma”, becoming a Grandmother is an incredibly special role and upon meeting my gorgeous grandchild in February I am totally smitten!
After hanging up my dancing shoes life lead me to Hamilton Island, where I worked for several years in the role of a wedding planner and coordinator. Hamilton Island Weddings has a superb reputation and I guess this is where my immense “Love” of all things wedding related began.
Moving into the role of a Marriage Celebrant was a natural progression and a good fit. I’m so glad my journey has lead me to where I am now. I am a confident public speaker, extremely passionate and enthusiastic about my responsibilities as a Marriage Celebrant and love meeting new people. I also take immense pride in my appearance, punctuality and presentation.
I am a consummate professional, who recognises the importance of consistently providing exceptional personal service to each and every individual ceremony booking. Priding myself on inspirational ceremony ideas, outstanding reviews, well written and thoughtfully delivered vibrant ceremonies that acknowledge love, laughter, tears and of course all Australian legal requirements!
When I’m not marrying couples or naming babies I am usually catching up with friends or family, trying new restaurants or being captivated by a good book. I also love being active and try and get to the gym a few times a week.
So if you think I am someone you would like to get to know…call now for an obligation free meeting or phone conversation. It’s really that easy!
Let’s take that journey together … it will be an amazing experience!
“Love is Love” it comes in all different shapes, sizes, gender and sometimes from the most unexpected places.
