Hi my name is Coleene Quinn, a registered celebrant servicing from Townsville to Cairns and anywhere in between. I give professional, friendly and personalised service delivered with lots of love.
I relocated to Mission Beach in beautiful North Queensland to be closer to my daughter and grandchildren.
Becoming a celebrant has been such an enjoyable part of my relocating- experiencing the tropical lifestyle and working with people at such a special time in their lives.
My professional life to date has been interesting and varied …
I have worked as a journalist with regional newspapers and as a morning radio presenter. I have owned several small businesses and then changed career to work in government and then corporate management. I was the first female in Queensland to be appointed head of a Government Qangos and I have represented Queensland on State and Federal enquiries and committees over the years.
I am a past member of “Women’s Chiefs of Enterprise”, have been a recipient of the “Woman of Substance” award and was invited to be the first female in Queensland to be inducted as a Member of Rotary.
I have a warm, friendly personality and a sense of humour. I am calm, relaxed and well organised. Most importantly people know I am reliable and they can trust me.
I am sensitive and attentive to your needs, and look forward to giving you the best ceremony you could wish for.
The ceremony was simply beautiful (every guest has made comment – even some of the boys), I don’t think there was a dry eye out there; we were so lucky to have had you there on our day:
Maree & Matt
It’s Kate ….. (now Kate ……..!) here.
Again, thankyou so much for being our celebrant. Our day was so beautiful and magical, we loved every minute.
We have had so many people comment on our Ceremony, so thank you for your help in insuring it was nothing but perfect!
Here’s a couple of happy snaps from our special day: We absolutely loved our wedding day (especially our Ceremony!)
Thanks again for everything – our Ceremony was perfect.
Hope all is well at Mission Beach Take care Coleene,
Kate and Dan
Thank you again for the beautiful ceremony yesterday. It was everything I dreamt of and more.
Thanks Ally & Jarrod
Good Morning Coleene
What a wonderful day, I’m so terribly sorry I didn’t get to thank you personally yesterday after the ceremony. I can’t believe how busy we were!
We had the most wonderful, perfect day and night. The ceremony was so very special, and I can’t thank you enough for making it so beautiful. We were so lucky to have no rain and that lovely breeze to keep it cool.
Thank you again for all your help you have provided to me along the way,
I couldn’t have done it without all your experience and knowledge to make it as special as it was.
Both our love
Amy & Geoff
We have gone over the draft and totally love it all. Our choice for the mothers reading is that they share the last one “Love one another.” We will work on our vows this week and send them through to you. Thank you so much for all your efforts to ensure our day is magical xx
