Happiness is at the heart of Judith Celebrations.

My name is Judith Peterson. I am a Canberra-based civil celebrant.

Bringing family and friends together for marriage, naming, commitment and vow renewal ceremonies is a genuine joy and privilege. I believe in creating an atmosphere of warmth and kindness – the perfect match for any celebratory theme you have in mind.

We will plan your ceremony together, taking great care to produce a beautiful ceremony that is a reflection of you. My go-with-flow approach, humour and confidence in front of an audience means you can rely on me to be professional, whatever comes my way.

With more than 25 years’ experience as a social worker, I am also a writer, director, actor and producer at Ally Cat Productions. These skills allow me to have a friendly, relaxed presence that will set the stage for a heartfelt and memorable day for you and your guests.

I am always grateful to receive praise from my clients about my thoughtful and thorough celebration services. After all, it is love, actually, that connects all of us.
