Meet Afaf

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. You’ll feel like we’ve known each other for years pretty soon after we meet – that’s just the way I am, personally and professionally!

In my personal life, I adore my family (related by blood or by choice) and love the time we spend together, including annual Christmas gatherings of 35+ at our house! I was lucky to find love again later in life and together with my husband Brett, I love travelling, cooking, walking our dog, eating, watching movies, volunteering and relaxing in Newcastle, which is truly heaven on earth!

Afaf Girgis, Newcastle Celebrant

Why choose me?

There are many celebrants to choose from, so why choose me? Here are just a few reasons!

I attended a wedding officiated by Afaf and she was absolutely wonderful. The perfect mix of lovely, light-hearted and a little bit cheeky. I was so lost in the moment, that by the end of the ceremony my cheeks were sore from smiling so much!

We had the absolute pleasure of having Afaf as our celebrant over the weekend for our small but personal backyard wedding ceremony. Believe it or not, we did not meet face to face until our wedding day, however the connection we created over phone calls and video calls, we just knew that Afaf was the perfect celebrant for us. Afaf personalized our ceremony and made it completely “us’. She has gone above and beyond and we simply could not have chosen someone more amazing to marry us. Thank you so much Afaf. We look forward to seeing you again for more things to come 🥰

Afaf is a passionate, sincere, warm and dedicated celebrant who will deliver the ceremony exactly as you wished. She is walking professionalism.

Brett

Afaf was an absolutely integral part of our special day. She was totally perfect as our marriage celebrant, and we couldn’t imagine anyone else for the job. Afaf guided us in choosing the type of ceremony we wanted, giving us great advice along the way. She knew what questions to ask, and ensured that the ceremony was tailored to our personalities and our wedding day. On the day itself, Afaf was a sea of calm in all the excitement, and put us totally at ease. We wholeheartedly recommend Afaf as a celebrant.

Amber and Brody

Afaf has a very warm & welcoming personality – while always remaining professional & engaged. I witnessed her marry my brother and his wife in their backyard wedding and it couldn’t have run more smoothly, with thanks to Afaf! I highly recommend her for any Celebrancy Service you may need!!

Chelsea

We could not imagine having anyone but Afaf share our special day. She easily adjusted to our individual personality styles and respected and supported our choices for the day. She is super organised, calm yet professional, sensitive, fun, considerate and caring. She makes sure you understand what is happening every step along the way, and answers any questions with knowledge and confidence. I wholeheartedly recommend Afaf if you are considering a ceremony that requires a celebrant.
