About me

I’m a welcoming and generous person, and you can be sure that if I take you under my wing, I will do everything in my power to help you achieve your goals, whatever these may be.

I became a celebrant because my best friend’s son, whom I’ve known since his birth and who’s always called me “Aunty Afaf”, wanted me to perform his wedding ceremony. As you can imagine, I was beyond flattered to be asked! As I embarked on completing the Certificate IV in Celebrancy, I realised that this was what I really wanted to do as the next stage of my working life.
