About Kerri Watkins Celebrant 

Let all that you do, be done in love… Your Day, Your Way—Cherish the Magic!

“I love the story, the connection, the journey, the trust. The look, the feels, the tears and declared dreams. Creating a ceremony full of love, fun and laughter where my couple declares to the world they have found their one!”

Kerri Watkins Celebrant has been marrying couples since 2008 in Brisbane and on the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast, but her love and passion are found in intimate elopements. She loves when couples choose to celebrate their love, their way. Each wedding is unique and personal, just like the couples themselves.

Kerri is also passionate about assisting her couples to write their own personal vows and is a bit of a bully (with the best of intentions and always there for guidance) when it comes to keeping them secret from each other #secretsquirrelvows Kerri shared that there is something truly magical about each partner hearing the other’s vows on the day, it’s the perfect opportunity to be in the moment.

Kerri will travel all over Australia with Off-Track Ceremonies (4wd) or you can head to Kerri’s second home on Moreton Island with Moreton Island Celebrant. Beautiful and unforgettable Moreton Island – the perfect destination wedding and only 90 minutes from Brisbane. Fancy getting hitched with sandy toes and salty kisses?

No matter where you decide to say I do, Kerri always puts her heart into making each ceremony perfect for her couples. Her years of experience have taught her how to capture the essence of love and create a ceremony that is truly memorable.

Let all that you do, be done in love… Your Day, Your Way—Cherish the Magic!

About Kerri

I never would have dreamed that I would meet the man of my dreams, get married AND become a celebrant. Funny how fate has other plans in store for us. That’s a story I would love to share with you one day.

On the day of my wedding, I just knew that I was going to share with other couples the crazy journey, that is love and get them #hitchedwithlove. So after our 3-day honeymoon, I came home and enrolled. And here I am 🙂

I’m a lover of love and a bit of a hopeless romantic – but I’m definitely a realist and know that it’s not always rainbows and butterflies. But I love that every love story is different and unique and every couple has their story to tell. My favourites are the ones that have overcome obstacles to be where they are today.

Fun Facts

– Lover of the beach, the stars, the moon, sunrises and sunsets.

– Evil step mum to two boys (well the boys don’t think I’m evil – but I like the stigma).

– Love my mates and my family – you know the special ones 😉

– Camping and 4wding – give me a swag under the stars with a fire over a 5 star hotel any day.

– Oh alright, I like a 5-star hotel too – but there better be an ocean view.

– Engel cold bourbon drinker – on the rocks these days.

– My hubby is my best mate.

Approach to Elopements

When it comes to elopements, I believe that less is more. I think that the simplest and most intimate way to elope is by just the two of you escaping to get married in secret. Whether you go to the registry office, my home office or find a spot in nature that has meaning to you, getting married in an intimate setting can be incredibly romantic and special.

I also believe that your elopement doesn’t have to be traditional in order to be beautiful and memorable. If you want to get married in your backyard or at a local park, that can be just as magical as getting married in an exotic location.

The most important thing is that you are marrying the love of your life, you only have those that you want standing beside you, and that is what will make your elopement truly special.

Hands down… simply amazing!!!!
“Hands down… simply amazing!!!! After meeting with Kerri for the first time we knew straight away that she was the right fit for us. Kerri’s beautiful nature and witty humour was an absolute breathe of fresh air. As a celebrant we could not be happier with her service. She had the whole place in tears with her beautiful words, at times hysterically laughing and best of all filled the room with love!!! My wife and I 110% recommend Kerri to anyone who is looking for a quality celebrant. Thank you so much Kerri and thank you for helping to make our special day so perfect!!! Much Love To You”

She is so warm, bubbly and helpful!
“From the moment we met Kerri we knew she was the celebrant for us. She is so warm, bubbly and helpful. Our wedding script was perfect and Kerri considered all of our requests and feedback. She regularly checked in with us in the months prior to our wedding. On the day she arrived early and she helped to put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much for sharing our special day with us and making our wedding ceremony everything we wanted it to be.”
Caitlin and Emma
We couldn’t have been happier!
“We couldn’t have been happier with choosing to elope on Moreton Island with Kerri as our celebrant. I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day. It was exactly what we were hoping for, a relaxed, laid back and intimate ceremony. Kerri was so easy to work with and made the entire process simple and stress free and she was always there for us if we had any questions or concerns about the day. I highly recommend her services.”
