Wedding

Hi there, my name is Kim Burgess.
I have been part of the wedding industry for over 30 years.  My love for weddings grew from the time I started as a Make-Up Artist, followed by many years as the owner of two award-winning Beauty Salons.  Along with creating beautiful looks on the day, I spent time prepping faces and bodies for the Brides and Grooms big day.
I now live on the amazing Tamborine Mountain and continue in the wedding industry as a Marriage Celebrant – my passion. I love the opportunity to meet with fabulous couples, who are in love and want to create a future together.
I believe it to be my role to create the look and feel that you dream of for your Wedding Ceremony. It is Your Day – Your Way!
My experience, my passion for love for people, is what drives me to create individual ceremonies for each of my couples that will forever bring happy memories. I am often described as bubbly, and I do enjoy a good laugh.  I am down to earth, and gather people into my world, simply because I am a people person. Nurturing and caring comes naturally to me and this helps me to look after you both during your Ceremony. You will feel confident that even if your nerves kick in on the day (and they will), or you fluff your vows – I’ve got you!  Even Celebrants feel nervous sometimes - on my wedding day I said the wrong name when reciting my wedding vows!!
I am now into my 6th year as a Marriage Celebrant with more than 200 weddings in my portfolio, I believe I could be the Celebrant you are looking for.
I think it is fabulous that many of the couples I have married, have come back to me to name their children, or create a vow renewal ceremony for them to celebrate a special anniversary.
Let me tell your story!

Lovely Lady. She is located on the Mountain but came out to Ashgrove to get to know us before the wedding. She catered the ceremony to what we wanted that included a candle ceremony

Kim was fantastic on our wedding day! Her service was so thoughtful and very much detailed, which helped a lot during my wedding preparation time. She always emailed and talked with me to make sure everything was alright. She helped remind us on all the major preparations and always ready to help more.
She came to our place going through all the legal papers with us and guided us every step to be ready for our ceremony.
She had a chat with us about our love story then transferred that into the speech she had on the ceremony. That was so beautiful and touching, I can say that everyone on the ceremony felt the love in the air!
I would love to recommend Kim to every couple because she will make your day!

Thank you so much.

I was an absolute shivering mess and it all flew by so fast.

Thank you a million times over for all the hard work you put in and we think the day went beautifully and wouldn’t have changed a thing.

You were fantastic and really made our ceremony truely special, you made us feel relaxed and we are so pleased we had you there with us on our day.

I will be sure to send through some photos, and as I sit here I just remembered we didn’t get one of the 3 of us together .. dammit!

Thank you Kim and hubby.
Lots and lots of love from Alex and Tommy

The way you completely got our humour and incorporated it into our ceremony. Nothing was too much trouble and you made both of us feel at ease. Thank you for making our day so special.

Both Andrew and I agree you were great. You ensured the main important part of the day ran smoothly. Everybody agreed the ceremony was great. The crowd loved the Ogden Nash poem but the sadness ceremony was particularly appreciated. Mind you, if you had have reminded me earlier, I might have thought to go the Hawthorn colours for Andrew but brown and yellow are a bit drab. More than happy for us to recommend you. All the best to you and your husband. Edwina and Andrew

💜💙 Our beautiful wedding with ring ceremony, hand fasting ceremony & a 12 strong bridal party bracelet ceremony, was conducted effortlessly by Kim. Pretty certain she had something to do with the rain holding off too but we can’t confirm that 🤷🏻‍♀️ Easy communication, listened to our needs & offered additional ideas, friendly & personable. Thank you Kim!
