Your celebrant


Blue theme wedding

Hi, I'm Kelly Joy and I am an Authorised Marriage Celebrant located on Magnetic Island in tropical north Queensland. I am blessed to have lived here for over 20 years now and I've been a celebrant for over 12 years.

If you are looking for a celebrant with a friendly, down to earth nature,

you have come to the right place.

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 and your relationship. Or you may choose a ready-made ceremony and just add your own vows. Your legal paperwork is treated with the upmost of privacy and care. I can help you to choose prose or poetry for readings, include your own personal love story, and provide options for ring promises and the asking. I specialise in weddings with a difference. From modern lighthearted ceremonies, to pagan handfasting ceremonies, same sex weddings as well as traditional wedding ceremonies.

I can also help to create your vow renewal or baby naming ceremony.

It would be my honour and privilege to be your celebrant.
