Blue Mountains Celebrant

My name is Evelyn Calaunan and welcome to my Website. I have been a Blue Mountains celebrant since 2008 and I really love what I do.

I love acknowledging all of life’s milestone moments and it is truly my honour when a couple or family entrust me to create and deliver a personalised ceremony which celebrates the couple’s relationship or commemorates a person’s life.

Thank you for the most beautiful ceremony, we were both incredibly touched by your kind words and all the love you put into it.

Blue Mountains Celebrant – Weddings, Funerals, Commitment Ceremonies & Vow Renewals

From my past life experiences I know that I can relate to a wide variety of people. I accept everyone for what they believe in and make people feel comfortable. My strong speaking voice, compassionate nature, attention to detail, love of ritual and people will ensure that your ceremony will be memorable.

Choosing a celebrant is a highly personal process and it is very important that you feel some sort of connection with your celebrant. So I invite you to meet with me obligation-free and we can discuss your needs.

Elopement  Style – Marry Me Quick

Wedding Celebrant Blue Mountains 1Years ago, I tried to elope in Australia but then found out that you can’t …

If you decide to marry in Australia, you need to give an authorised marriage celebrant, either civil or religious, at least one month’s notice of your intended date, by completing the NOIM Notice of Intended Marriage form, which is valid for 18 months.

I didn’t get to elope in Australia, but successfully did in America at a Drive through Chapel in Vegas.

I am finding that more couples are wanting this get married quick option with a small intimate crowd or just their witnesses in attendance. So if this sounds like you, please get in touch.
