About Me

A LITTLE OF MY STORY

My involvement with Weddings in Queensland began 16 years ago when I stepped into the industry as a professional singer. Over my many years singing at every type of wedding and function imaginable - very small, intimate private house Weddings to large Convention Centre extravaganzas - I can honestly say I have seen it all.  I have learned a lot and have loved every minute of it! ​

In between gigging up a storm and looking after my precious fur babies (my dog, Honey, and my cat, Lynx), I managed to complete 2.5 degrees, work for a long time as a Team Leader at Myer and learn all about this fabulous journey we call LIFE. Being a "details" person, having a natural affinity for people and living my unique life experiences has taught me how to be sensitive to a client's needs, pre-empt their wishes and deliver exactly that all whilst providing 5 star service.

I truly feel that everyone deserves that.

Now back to the topic at hand! I have to say that I always particularly loved watching Celebrants doing their thing during Wedding Ceremonies and one day, I decided that it was time for me to follow my heart into becoming a Celebrant, too.

So I did! 

A beautiful moment of serendipity happened the week after I finished my Celebrant course, learning about the ins and outs of marrying people who are in love - I met my now-husband (isn't it funny the way life works out?). Coming from a law background in Brazil, Leo had always wanted to move into owning his own business, so we put our heads together and decided that it made sense for us to develop one that was connected to the Wedding Industry, since I was already so involved there. After realising how much fun we both had in a photo booth at a friend's party, we thought it was the perfect fit and, after scouring the World to find the best one, bought a beautiful open-air retro style photo booth.

Today, I work in the capacity of Celebrant, professional singer with my band, Martini, owner/operator of Booth Chic Brisbane, and director of Chic Brisbane Events (specialising in entertainment design) and feel very blessed indeed to be completely immersed in the world of Weddings and the Queensland Events and Entertainment industry every day of my life.

A wonderful part of having been involved with Queensland Weddings for so long is that I have had the opportunity to meet and work with a wide variety of other vendors of every kind, and have found a select few who consistently possess what I call "the magic combination". The vendors I've found with "the magic combination" are equally as lovely and easy to deal with as they are consummate professionals AND the best at what they do. I'm talking photographers, cake artists, makeup artists, stylists, wedding dress designers, jewellery makers, MCs, music agents, and of course, photo booths - literally everyone you may need to create the Wedding of your dreams.

 

I know it can be really daunting to work out which vendors are going to be the perfect fit for you so as part of every booking, I can recommend the professionals I trust to you to help you choose your dream team.
