Meet Carleen Walsh

Stacks Image 136
Carleen Walsh was naturally drawn to becoming a celebrant. Since childhood, she has been attracted to the importance of ceremony and service. As a young child, she attended church service regularly where she would enjoy participating in all the traditions and ceremonies practiced by the local minister. She loves and is accepting of all traditions that are practiced by all faiths and is happy to adopt these practices into her wedding services wherever practical if the couple wishes.

When you meet Carleen you are first drawn to her warm and vibrant nature. She immediately puts you at ease, making you feel confident that your ceremony will be realised as you envision it. She gives 100% of herself to her passions and her Celebrant business is one of these passions.

Registering as a Celebrant in 2009 became a defining moment for Carleen; she had finally discovered what she feels she was born to do.

“That’s what I love doing - helping people to commune and make meaning around a common purpose. Whether it is to celebrate the start of a new life together or to remember and recognize a life well lived, it’s what I get up for in the morning.”

A proud mother of two, Carleen grew up on Brisbane’s Bayside. She brings to her celebrant work a rich background of life and career experience. She is a lifelong learner and firmly believes in always having a goal and striving to be the best you can be. She wears many hats and has many pursuits and qualifications to add to her repertoire including a Bachelor of Commerce, Justice of the Peace qualification, and Reiki II channel. Carleen also supports fund raising for the School of St Judes in Africa - a project that saw her make the brave climb to the top of Mt Kilimanjaro in early 2014.

She is a proud member of her local Rotary Club and is very active in community based projects which serve her local community and wider neighbourhoods. She is currently serving an executive role of Club Secretary and enjoying all the challengers that she faces.

For Carleen, to be given an opportunity to do work that recognises the good in everyone, is a great privilege. Celebrants of Brisbane enables her to do this, she says, because it encompasses all ways of bringing people together and helping them to see the good in each other. “... and that for me, is so special. It’s the life I am proud to lead,” says Carleen. “I know I can look back and say: I was of service and as a Celebrant, I will continue to be of service.”
