Why hello there!
My name is Rachel Valentyne, and I'm an authorised marriage celebrant in the land of OZ.
I got hitched in 2020. "how did you manage that you ask"? I eloped with my lover up the east coast of Tasmania. "You're in Tasmania'? Yup, that's right. I grew up in Melbourne, moved to Central Victoria, made some babies, realised it sucks raising kids with no grandparents, so off to Tasmania we went.
I live in the Huon Valley by the beach with my husband, two kids and a Jack Russell. It's a good time.
I like dancing, singing, hanging out in the garden with my kids, swimming in the ocean, patting animals, drinking martinis with my husband and eating. I really love eating.
I decided to become a celebrant at the end of last year; my pal Tesha thought it was a good idea. She said I could wow a crowd and that I had some pretty nice vibes going on.
I embarked on what I thought would be a 3-month course. When you have very little time on your side, it takes you WAY longer to smash out a course. And now, here I am! Legit, and ready to get you all loved up and hitched!
My love for patting animals extends to how I believe they should be taken care of once they have passed away. I lost my cat a couple of years ago, and the grief I felt was indescribable. Because of this, I offer people the chance to send their animals off in style and with respect.
