meet me


Welcome to Tamborine & Gold Coast Celebrant website – My name is Kim Burgess and I am an Authorised Marriage Celebrant, approved by the Attorney-Generals’ Department to solemnise Wedding Ceremonies throughout Australia. I am also a Qualified Life Celebrant, able to conduct Commitment Civil Ceremonies, Vow Renewal and Naming Ceremonies.

I live on beautiful Tamborine Mountain – a little piece of paradise. The perfect setting for a rainforest Wedding, at a Winery venue or an elegant Resort, Tamborine Mountain also offers beautiful National Parks – “Your Day – Your Way”. I am also very happy to travel to the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Northern NSW and Brisbane for your special day, and whilst I reside on beautiful Tamborine Mountain, I don’t expect you to pay travelling fees to your ceremony – if travelling is required!

I bring a wealth of life experience with me to be your Marriage Celebrant. Not only having performed many varied types of ceremonies, I have considerable Public Speaking experience and Customer Service Skills. People are my passion and making clients happy is what I have always strived to do. I am here to serve you both and deliver the perfect Ceremony that you want. “Your Day – Your Way”

Having attended many Weddings as a Guest, and hearing from Family and Friends, that are planning a Wedding, all asking “will our Celebrant create the Ceremony that is really us?” The answer ……. my answer………is YES ! “Your Day – Your Way”

I believe that your Wedding Day should be relaxing, fun and one you will remember for all of the right reasons – the one you have dreamed of! Being a Celebrant is more than just about the legalities of the day, it’s about having an understanding of the Couple – who they are, and what is important to them to make their day one they will cherish, filled with love and laughter. It is my job to make it “Your Day – Your Way”. Your way may be a beautiful Traditional wedding, a laid back Beach Ceremony, a simple, tasteful Ceremony that represents you both, or a Theme Wedding. “Your Day – Your Way” I am there to ensure that it is just that! “Your Day – Your Way”

Marriage is an important decision, and shouldn’t be taken lightly. Stop, think, listen and discuss, however just because it is a serious decision doesn’t mean that on your special day you have to be! It’s ok to laugh during the Ceremony, wherever it may be held! Nothing’s off limits, all you need to do is ask and I am only too happy to make it “Your Day – Your Way”.
