Welcome to my website. My name is Kelly Joy and I am an Authorised Marriage Celebrant located on Magnetic Island in tropical north Queensland. If you are looking for a celebrant with style, grace and a friendly, down to earth nature, you have come to the right place. I don't charge any extra to do a wedding in either a Townsville or Magnetic Island location. I will tell you up front about the extra services and costs so that you can choose what you need and there will be no surprises. My 2020 standard wedding ceremony fee is $750. Discounts are available for weekdays and for already written weddings.

My vision for Eronda Ceremonies was to concentrate on providing high-quality service and customer satisfaction. Whether you are planning a wedding on Magnetic Island or in Townsville, I can help you design a ceremony that is personal to you in every way, at a reasonable price, well under the cost of your photographer or even your decorations, and all the legal paperwork is taken care of for you. Write your own vows, or try a special touch of a unity ceremony within your wedding ceremony. An offering of flowers, a candle or sand ceremony, it is up to you. Choose prose or poetry for readings, include your own personal love story, I will help make your wedding uniquely you. I specialise in weddings with a difference, modern lighthearted ceremonies, pagan and alternative ceremonies as well as traditional ceremonies.
