Me- NYC Town Hall. Photo: Kristy May photo
My name is Kirili. I grew up obsessed with pollypockets, tamogotchis and a boy band called Hanson.
Since then, my obsessions have become more refined with wine, chocolate, cheese, dumplings (and having 2 little ones, sleep is definitely on the list too!). I have called Canberra home for the best part of 30 years and there’s a very good chance it will be my home for the next 30. There are some spectacular venues around Canberra and it's a great place to have a marriage ceremony.
I am a fully qualified naturopath, science graduate/perpetual student (I've almost finished my MBA), sport nut and a crafter-noon extraordinaire. I like to think I have a solid grasp on reality and what being in love is all about- the good, the bad and the ugly. I share each day with my true loves; my daughter, her little brother, one big bulldog and my goofball husband.
I decided to become a celebrant because weddings are fun and love is grand. The concept and reality of getting married has evolved ten fold since our parents, and their parents got hitched. The evolving nature of marriage is exciting and I want to be part of it. I want a couple to remember their ceremony and celebrant for the right reasons. A ceremony isn't the 'boring part' before the party, it is the start of the party that really sets the mood for the rest of the day. A ceremony is a simple way to let people in your lives know that your commitment is true, two people in love, both on the same team. My approach with ceremonies is to keep them relaxed, light hearted and fun.
