Kathryn Paul | Marriage Celebrant
What's your 30-second elevator speech?
When my widowed mother got married for the second time at 78 years old, I realised love and marriage comes in all different flavours – not just the kind we hear about in fairy stories and church services. Her wedding inspired me to become the kind of marriage celebrant who celebrates second chance love, updated traditions and simple eco-friendly ceremonies for couples who love the planet as much as they love each other.
Who inspires you the most to be the best you can be as a person?
Jacinda Adern is my role model – calm and collected in difficult situations but can still be emotional and vulnerable about things that are important.
Can you tell us a little bit about your business, and the areas you specialise in?
I am a modern marriage celebrant who serves couples who have created a new, improved love story from the broken pieces of their past relationships, and who understand how joyous and magical second chances can be.
I help couples celebrate their wedding day in a way that honours their past while looking towards the future, through original, updated wedding traditions which reflect their personality and beliefs.
Can you tell me about one of your client success stories?
All my couples are still married … so far!
What’s your favourite thing about working at Motive Coworking?
I hold my client meetings here on the weekends so I love the peace and quiet, the professional atmosphere and easy parking.
What does life look like outside your business profile? What do you like doing for fun?
I also run a full-time business as a graphic designer and social media manager as well as my celebrant business. I try to stay young and fit by running every day.

Bonus Question: If you were a sandwich, what sort of sandwich would you be and why?
I’d be a vegetarian sandwich because I’d be helping the planet by not including meat, plus full of energy and vitality.
