Being held up in an armed robbery whilst working as a pharmacy assistant led to Julie Ryan to take some time off and look for something a little less stressful.
What is it that you do as a marriage celebrant?
In my role as a marriage celebrant, I am the one you meet to organise your ceremony to ensure the words of love come through to your guests in a beautiful and meaningful ceremony structured around what you want. I lodge all the paperwork required by Births, Deaths and Marriages to ensure your marriage is legal.
How did wanting to become a celebrant come to life?
I was having some time away from my role as a pharmacy assistant after being involved in an armed holdup and was looking for something a little less stressful. I had been attending my uncles funeral and thought what a beautiful ceremony the celebrant had conducted. It was at this time, I decided I wanted to be able to reach out and be a celebrant.
To complete the Certificate in Celebrancy it involves both components of marriage and funeral… and here I am today, a celebrant!
I graduated in 2017 and applied to the Attorney General for my registration which was approved and I was legally registered on 5th January 2018.
What do you love about your job?
What is not to love? I get to meet lovely couples and help them put together beautiful ceremonies. When it comes to their special day, I am the one that gets to bring together two people in love, surrounded by their nearest and dearest. I also get to see the smiles, the kisses and so much love which makes it a truly wonderful job.
