are about to begin a journey, on board a vessel we call marriage.
Excited & intoxicated with anticipation of the extended voyage and its carriage...
Hello my name is Donna
Fornasiero; I am an authorized Civil Marriage Celebrant and a Commissioner for
I am also one of the few female commercial skippers in the area of the Whitsunday Islands area.
I have resided
permanently in Airlie Beach, “The Whitsundays” since 2000. My work as a
commercial skipper brought me up here and since that time I have fallen in love
with the area with its beautiful scenery, its turquoise blue waters and
its magical atmosphere of serenity.
Celebrants are appointed by the Attorney-General to authorise marriages
The reasons behind my deciding to become a celebrant were, when I was out on charter my guests on the boat were always asking if I could marry them, legally unfortunately you cannot unless you become authorized like myself. I also thought at the time what a beautiful idea, how traditional and romantic.
However due to
the issues of conflict of interest according to the Marriage Celebrants section
I must make it clear I am only allowed to act as a celebrant on the day of a
couple's wedding day and in no way act as a skipper, but can give you
guidance to help you find the perfect place.
I am happy to
officiate from small private weddings to large family gatherings. Every
Ceremony I compose and design is written with love and warmth and personilzed
to each individual couple.
I see myself as
a vibrant modern celebrant, with high regards to commitment to detail and
providing a service that suits the needs of the couple. It is your wedding and
you should get what you dream of.
