Laurel Tonkin Geelong Marriage Celebrant
Get to know me
I am a registered Civil Marriage Celebrant licensed to perform weddings and civil unions in Australia. I have been trained to design and perform ceremonies which honour and celebrate life’s important milestone events.
I have been closely involved with people on a personal level for over 30 years working as a hairdresser. I understand the need for trust and confidence between myself and my clients. People say I am easy going, calm and extremely well organised. I have a warm and friendly personality and most of all people know they can rely on me. I am a people person and love meeting and forming new friendships.
My husband and I have been happily married for more than three decades. We have two loving sons, two wonderful daughter-in-laws and six delightful grandchildren. I was honoured and privileged to officiate at my youngest son's wedding in October 2013. Although there were a few tears shed at the beginning of the ceremony, this made it all the more personal and an experience that I will never forget. I delight in celebrating the stories of how couples met and fell in love. It is a deep honour to share and help shape such an important celebration in your lives.
My role as a marriage celebrant is to help my couples create ceremonies that meet their needs and reflect significant personal milestones in their lives. I understand the importance of family, friends and relationships and I would love to work with you to create your perfect ceremony.
