Based in Cranbourne North,  I have been a celebrant since 1980.

I have had the pleasure of officiating at many thousands of weddings,  each of them unique and beautiful.  

At the present time I am an active member of two celebrant organisations - the Association of Civil Marriage Celebrants of Victoria Inc. (Life Member), and Civil Celebrants Network (Life Member).   All of the above provides me with access to the latest trends in creating unique ceremonies.

I am also a partner in Casey Celebrants, with my daughter, Lisa Beck.

What clients have said about me

Words can't describe how delighted we were with our ceremony on the beach. You have a wonderful gift, you made our wedding ceremony so beautiful. We will recommend you to all our friends.

Please accept our family's deepest gratitude to you on the way you officiated at our father's funeral ceremony recently. Dad would have loved the warm, compassion and touch of humour that you incorporated into his service. Your experience and gentle manner shone through and helped us relax and enjoy the tribute you paid to our Dad.

Just a short message to thank you once again for  being our celebrant. Our aim was to have a warm, no fuss, intimate home wedding and that is what we were able to achieve with your help and guidance. We didn't want a sombre serious ceremony and you kept with our wishes, keeping it light, humorous and at the same time, professional. Thank you so much.

Karen and Rob, Cranbourne, Vic

Thanks, Dawn, for being the celebrant at our wedding in February. We are so pleased we chose you. Everything was what we dreamed it would be. You helped make the day so wonderful. Even the rain didn't spoil things.  We are so glad that you were recommended to us and that you were available for our wedding.

Katrina and Jason, Beaconsfield, Vic
