Pauline Harland Celebrant

“Love is such a powerful emotion… it is so beautifully toxic… so much so that it gives me goose bumps.”

Meet Pauline


I have been an Authorised Marriage Celebrant since February 2017. Standing with couples and being in that intense moment with them while they share their vulnerable and whole-hearted declarations to each other, full of emotion and love, gives me goose bumps. Being a celebrant is one of the most rewarding and gratifying experiences of my entire life, and a role that I cherish and honour.

I love to spend time with couples and really get a good feeling for the style of ceremony that will best suit them. No ceremony is ever the same because each unique couple deserves their unique ceremony content and I labour for hours drafting words that will ensure complete customer satisfaction.

My couples especially relate to the way I put them at ease before and during the ceremony. I share my personal tips to ensure that vows are presented with all the emotion they warrant, but not at the detriment of the theatre of the ceremony. Rest-assured, couples that have used my techniques for ‘holding it together’ are forever grateful that they could confidently articulate their promises to their partner and audience, sometimes surprising themselves at how well they performed.

Feel free to read my testimonials page to get an understanding of how selecting the right Celebrant is paramount to having the best day of your life. The couples that have used my services have all given resounding reviews and quite often we stay in touch into the future. I love to hear when they announce they’re expecting a baby, or sharing baby photos!

Remember that without a Marriage Celebrant your wedding is only a party, and my premium service with affordable pricing could be the perfect match to turn yours into the most memorable milestone of all.

When not meeting couples and preparing their wedding ceremony, I spend my time in nature, swimming and meditating at the beach, hiking and picnicking in our beautiful rainforests or relaxing upon our stunning waterways. As the Advertising Manager for a national travel company, I also like to spread my wings and sojourn to new and exciting destinations whenever possible.

My family is my most valued treasure and I’m fortunate to have them close to me. Based in Burleigh Heads, I perform wedding ceremonies from Byron Bay to Noosa Heads and beyond.
