Civil Marriage Celebrant Brisbane & Gold Coast

About Elke

Whilst this wedding ceremony is all about you and your fiance, it helps when you know a little about me. I am a Civil Marriage Celebrant based in Brisbane and Gold Coast.

I have been to so many weddings and played bridesmaid and MC to my friends weddings,  that ‘I simply “fell in love”. Being a romantic at heart I’m a big fan of two people in love committing themselves to marriage and so it was just a natural progression that I became a Marriage Celebrant.

I just love seeing the groom’s face light up when he sees his beautiful bride walk down the aisle, and then also at the end as I present them for the very first time as husband and wife, the sense of relief and happiness in their eyes…it’s just magical!

I really love what I do and do what I love, and I don’t see myself as “just a celebrant” My role is far more important that that, I bringing two people together in love to share their life as husband and a wife….what an awesome job!

As well as being a Civil Marriage Celebrant, I am an Intuitive Healer and Reiki Master and have a passion to inspire people and make a difference in the world. One of my charities that I believe in and support is Equality Now… a world organisation that uses the law to change the world where women and girls have the same rights as men.

One of my favourite quotes…”Love the life you live, live the life you love”

Well, this is my story and I would love to hear yours!

Elke, thank you so much for making our wedding ceremony everything that we imagined! You helped us have the ceremony we wanted. We cannot thank you enough and highly recommend your services!

Elke Howard from Ceremonial Moments was absolutely wonderful to deal with. From her initial meeting with us to go over what we were envisioning for the ceremony, to emailing and calling us in the lead up to make sure all details were exactly right, and right through to the actual ceremony, Elke was so incredibly helpful. Her desire to create something that was special and unique for us on our wedding day really shone through and we couldn’t be happier!

Please contact me anytime to see if I’m available for your special day. If so, I’d love to meet you for a coffee and a chat (obligation free) to discuss how I can help you create your special ceremony.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!
