Hi! I’m Donna, The Sailing Celebrant.
I am an authorized Civil Marriage Celebrant and a Commissioner for Declarations. 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.
Your wedding day should be an indication and reflection of your love and dedication to each other, your attitude to life and you and your partner’s sense of style.
I shall endeavour to make sure your wedding day is unforgettable.
YOU ARE ABOUT TO BEGIN A JOURNEY, ON BOARD A VESSEL WE CALL MARRIAGE. EXCITED & INTOXICATED WITH ANTICIPATION OF THE EXTENDED VOYAGE AND ITS CARRIAGE…
If you own a boat or plan on chartering one while in this beautiful area, I may act as your Captain/Skipper and also your Marriage Celebrant.
Providing 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 personalized to each individual couple. I see myself as a vibrant modern celebrant, with high regard for commitment to detail and providing a service that suits the needs of the couple.

Justin is an absolute fantastic photographer. His attention to detail and level of expertise is outstanding. We are extremely grateful for having him capture our wedding day and we can’t thank him enough with how much we love our photos. From the very initial contact we had with Justin, the process was smooth. During the shoot he even fixed up the grooms bow tie and buttonhole, and knew exactly how to shoot the brides accessories down to every little detail. He is patient, understanding and knows where and how to capture the right shots. He manages his team extremely well and worked seamlessly with the videographer, Kian. We wouldn’t recommend anyone else to capture our special day. Thank you Justin and Kian!
Justin was very professional and amazing at what he does.
We had the best experience with Justin. He was very accommodating and made us feel at ease with the process. We've had a few sneak peaks from our special day and they've already exceeded our expectations. We can't wait to see the rest!
We couldn’t thank JB enough! He made our day more enjoyable and made us feel comfortable the entire time. Our photos are absolutely beautiful, thank you so much JB, Luke and I will forever be grateful. :)
JB was absolutely phenomenal! He is second to none and we loved having our wedding photographed by him. He was so thorough in the lead up to the wedding and honestly amazing on the day. I couldn't recommend him more!

Thank you to JB for making us feel so comfortable in taking photos that turned out looking so natural and captured a perfect moment we will always remember. Great coordination of the photos and JB was lovely to be around. JB was very helpful and clear in what he needed for things to run smoothly.

Coming from someone who is extremely uncomfortable getting their photo taken… Justin made me feel so relaxed and comfortable. He was friendly and so easy to get along with. Justin sent us some sneak peek photos the very same day as our wedding and I was completely blown away. I never expected in a million years I’d have such beautiful photos. I can’t wait to see the rest. Thank you again Justin. 10/10 experience
