My love for the ocean
brought me to the Sydney Northern Beaches in
1990 where I live with my husband. I was born in
Austria and migrated to Australia with my family
as a young child - German is my first language.
I am fortunate to still be able to speak German
fluently and I am passionate about foreign
languages. My background is in Communication and
the Real Estate Industry, predominantly in a
customer service environment.
appointed as a Civil Marriage Celebrant in 2004
has allowed me to indulge my passion of the
outdoor, the sun and the water.
It is my commitment to
provide a relaxed, professional service, in an
environment which reflects your personalities. I
will strive to make your Wedding Day one which
will stay in your memory for life. You can rely
you for your help in organising our wedding
ceremony. We are very grateful for all your
assistance and we were pleased to have shared
our special day with you. You gave us ample
freedom to design a ceremony which was very
personal and we were happy that all of our
requests and wording were able to be used. Our
friends and family just loved the communal ring
blessing which you suggested we incorporate in
our ceremony. Thank you again for all that you
did for us on our wedding day."

a life-affirming story of four women who took up
surfing in their forties, broke away from their
existing daily routines and steered their lives
into new directions.
Their love of the ocean broadens their horizons,
teaches them lessons of skill and survival,
allows them time for reflection and shows them
that change and loss make way for growth,
renewal and peace.
With an exciting and sometimes hilarious take on
surfing, this book reveals insights into their
life journeys and their passion for finding the
“Life is for living — let’s go surfing!”

The Oak tree and the Cypress
Love one another, but make not a
bond of love;
Let it rather be a moving sea
the shores of your souls.
Fill each other’s cup but drink not
from one cup.
Give one another of your bread
but eat not from the same loaf.
Sing and dance together and be
but let each one of you be alone.
Even as the strings of a lute are
they quiver with the same music.
Give your hearts, but not into each
For only the hand of Life can
contain your hearts.
And stand together yet not too near
For the pillars of the temple stand
And the oak tree and the cypress
grow not in each other’s shadow.
