About Ann Lord, civil celebrant

I’m delighted to be able to share in one of the most exciting and memorable days in a couple’s life.  Being the one to declare you married is such an honour and it never gets old, even after more than well over 200 ceremonies.

With a professional background in education and psychology, I’ve spent the past 20 years working in the education sector with young people of all ages, parents, teachers and administrators in the Perth metro area and the far north of Western Australia.

An experienced writer and public speaker, I became an authorised marriage celebrant in 2008.  Warm, friendly and professional, I bring genuine joy to your special day.

As a celebrant authorised by the Australian Government’s Attorney-General’s Department, I engage regularly in profesional learning and can perform ceremonies anywhere in Australia.  I am also an active member of Australia’s leading marriage celebrant professional association, the Australian Federation of Civil Celebrants (AFCC).

I'm a regular exhibitor at the Perth Wedding Upmarket at the University of Western Australia, along with around 50 of Perth's top wedding creatives and am a strong supporter of same sex marriage.

I take on a limited number of ceremonies each year so please ensure you enquire early about your chosen date.
