MEET JOELIE BIRD
Hello, how great to see you here!
I'm Joelie Bird, and I would love to be your Celebrant. I have always found myself working amongst the creative - Art, Copywriting, Music. In my 'day job' I'm a funeral director and mortician, and I use the celebrant role in funerals a lot too. I am also Registered Justice of the Peace for South Australia, which comes in very handy. Creativity drives me and everything I do is with immense passion and dedication. If I don't feel emotionally invested in a task I find it hard to do!
These skills work very closely together and compliment one another really well. I create ceremonies for weddings, funerals, baby namings amongst others, and I offer rich bespoke script writing that really sounds like those involved in the ceremony. That is of upmost importance to me. These ceremonies are free from traditions, open, honest, vibrant and inclusive of all lifestyles and circumstance. I love to write and I happily design ceremony scripts that work for you and your situation with intimate and unique script. I suppose I work around 'Transitions' a lot. I sometimes say we move in the fringes - the hidden parts of society that don't get seen so much but are so crucial and absolute necessities.
I create art that depicts the illusive feminine, with aspects of whimsy. Usually it's fine ink and watercolour but sometimes it's hairdresser or shop/cafe murals on walls. Art can translate into weddings where I have the pleasure of creating art for special days as well.
I have many children's books published and writing is a most favourite things of mine to do, share and use to evoke.
I'm a queer mumma to three at varied ages. I have a loving and powerful partner who inspires me everyday. I feel blessed by the community and lifestyle here in Adelaide as I have the freedom to explore many of the passions that grab me at whim. Nice for an ADHD entrapaneur!
I'd love you to contact me if you think I'm the right fit for your event, your walls, your pages.
I'm based in Glynde, South Australia, but I'm happy to travel to wherever you require. Please contact me to discuss.
Depending on your location, I'm happy to meet with you in your home or we can find a cafe (or bar) close to either of us. My place is good too, if you don't mind being inundated by the cutest pets.
