The surfing celebrant

Clarah Luxford

​​​​​Do you know that feeling of overwhelming happiness and love that gives you Goosebumps???? I get that at every wedding I witness. I love the infectious joy a wedding brings. Making people happy is what makes me happy. That is what I intend to do for you. 
Weddings can be quite stressful and we all need someone to bring calmness and clarity to the moment, that’s where I come in. I will be there to make sure your wedding is everything you hoped for and more. 

​​​​​Most of us have been to an awkward wedding, or one that felt dis-connected or just plain weird!!
It doesn't have to be that way!!
We can create a unique, meaningful ceremony that will become one of the highlights of your wedding day!
Most people don't even know where to start when it comes to their actual ceremony. I love helping couples navigate that process. My goal is to help every couple feel informed, empowered and able to enjoy their ceremony. I'd love to help you too.

​​​​​After years of being MC at wedding receptions, I realised that my joy for such days could go beyond just the reception… Oh and I did have a small nudge in the celebrant direction by my awesome sister who asked me to become registered to solemnise her marriage!
Since then, I’ve fallen in love with creating fun (yet heartfelt) ceremonies that are a true celebration of the couple we have come together to celebrate.

​​​​​Being a wedding celebrant is so much more than reading a script. Every wedding has a little piece of me—sometimes a really big piece! Words I write are from the heart. They're personal and drawn from my own experience as a celebrant, wife, mother, sister, friend, writer and girl who likes a glass of champagne!
My ceremonies are unique, personal and modern. No ceremony is ever the same. I have a great sense of humour. I don't make cheesy jokes, a mockery of marriage, or say things simply too casual for a wedding—unless of course you ask!

​​​​​Preparing and making food has always been an essential part of my life. I have wonderful memories growing up in the rural heartland of Brazil where food is made lovingly from scratch. It’s an all-day communal affair, where stories are shared with family, friends and farmhands while splitting peas or stirring great pots of stew or making compotes and jams. To this day, it is something I dearly miss. So food is part of my soul, and sweet food especially.
