I am affiliated with the Australian Federation of Civil Celebrants, Australian Marriage Celebrants and Celebrants and Celebrations Network. These memberships enable me to keep up with the latest legal requirements and to bring fresh ideas into my ceremonies.

I have offices in Maroochydore and Kedron so meetings can be arranged at both of my places.

Latest News

Great news!  I am a Queensland Civil Partnerships Notary and able to conduct civil partnership ceremonies. So please contact me  if you and your partner  are wishing to have a ceremony.

Did you know that over 78% of weddings in Australia are conducted by celebrants?   When i was married in 1975, yes 40 years ago), there was less than 2%. We must be doing something right... perhaps meeting the needs of our couples. 

Welcome to my website- Life Events

My name is Kay Franks and my business name is Life Events.  I am a full-time celebrant from beautiful Queensland.

Life's events are for celebrating and I would like to celebrate with you.  I believe in fresh and unique ceremonies; fun and relaxed, designed to suit your style and budget.

I take pleasure in creating ceremonies that are individualised and different;  I craft and conduct your ceremony with you in mind - each ceremony personalised and perfected!

Ceremonies and Celebrations

My philosophy about my role as a celebrant is 'that it's all about You...'

My wish is to be your Life Celebrant - the one whom you call to assist you and your family celebrate all of your Life's Events. 


I have a range of wedding ceremony packages - your choice. K.I.S (yes, keep it simple)  for week-day weddings, Short + Sweet  for those couples looking for a shorter wedding ceremony and U-Nique, which are especially designed for you.

I aim to capture the essence of you - what makes you special, and include this into your ceremony. This is why each of my ceremonies is different!

About Kay Franks - Civil Marriage Celebrant

I have been a full-time civil celebrant  for nearly 10 years, and I have married hundreds+ of beautiful couples.  I have been married for 40 years and have four great children...and yes, I was married  and  had by children named by a celebrant.

For the previous decade, I worked in social planning and community development, with a degree in town planning. I love working with people, and I especially enjoy the company and humour of young people.

I am an accredited civil celebrant, which means that I can conduct weddings in Australia. I am also a Diploma trained funeral celebrant. I can collaborate with your chosen funeral director to create a celebration of life for your loved one.

I also conduct namings of children, commitment and renewal of vows ceremonies. Other celebrations include boat launchings and office/home warmings - anything that you wish to acknowledge and celebrate!

I can conduct your ceremony in your choice of setting - from Northern New South Wales to the Sunshine Coast - including the hinterlands and Brisbane and its surrounds - ask me for a quote!

I have lived in Queensland all of my life!  So I know many beautiful places. I have a close affinity with nature and its spirit.   I love bush and beach weddings.  However, I am just as at home in a beautiful venue or your back yard.
