Katie Reeve

Marriage Celebrant. Funeral Celebrant. Life Celebrant.

Hobart, Tasmania, Australia

Katie Reeve (aka me!) creates ceremonies for Marriages, Funerals, and non-legal celebrations.  She’s a ‘walk beside you‘, the ultimate ‘outside eye‘, the ‘yes, I sure can make that happen‘ person.

A skilled storyteller, she writes her ceremonies from scratch, based off your wishes, taking into consideration the styling, music, words, vibe, emotional journey (and so on, and so forth); with an ever-watchful eye on the overall experience being creating together!

With a strong sense of peace outdoors amongst, well, nature (insert anything from trees, to lakes, to bracken here), she likes to think of herself as a ‘Bush Walking Celebrant’, whether that be 2 or 20,000 steps from the car… Fear not though, she is totally up for donning the heels and doing the venue thang… whatever the calling!

With an interest in outdoor Ceremonies, shoes have got to optional, right?

Whatever the calling, there are places on this earth that speak to your heart and instil a sense of love, connection and peace within you.  A soulful connection and public declaration of love can be witnessed by more than our nearest and dearest.  Why not include the laugh of a kookaburra or squark of a seagull…?!

All terrains, from beautiful venues to rugged bush.  I’m in!



This photo of me? Fancy pants photo. In reality?  I’m a Story Collector, Professional Celebrator, and Compére of Ceremonies PLUS Mum of 2, gardening lover, eco-warrior and Cat kisser (not entirely true, I don’t kiss my cat, it just seemed to flow, but I do love him). Lover of: people, people’s stories, music that tells people’s stories, music that tells people’s stories alongside words and rituals. Get me over a coffee watching the world go by, chatting about life and I’ll be tinkering away in my head how to orchestrate your celebration.

You’re pretty good at life’ing. I’m pretty good at champion’ing.

I listen to your ideas, needs, stories, requests. I collect, collate, and reflect. I write. I suggest. I confer.  I come back to you with my ideas on how WE can celebrate YOUR event so that it is uniquely YOU based on what YOU have given ME.

Quietly, I think it is such a joyful process, with you at the helm (Project Manager) and me at the rear (supporting, ahem – insert chuckle here).
