A little about me
Firstly, thanks for stopping by.
I’m Steph (Stephanie Carnell) and I am the face behind Sealed by Steph. I proudly became a Newcastle resident 11 years ago when I moved from Central West NSW to study at the The University of Newcastle. I hold a bachelor degree in Early Childhood and Primary Teaching and a certificate IV in Celebrancy.
I have been married to my high school sweetheart for over 6 years and am a Mum to two beautiful children. I am very family orientated and love being out and about with my loved ones. You will usually find us at a local cafe or taking the kids on new adventures and finding new activities. I also enjoy cooking and spending quality time with friends.
Why did I become a Celebrant?
When my second child was born I decided I wanted to start a business just for me, doing something I loved. I loved everything about planning my own wedding and wanted to reignite this passion. I enrolled in my celebrancy course and on completion, started ‘Sealed by Steph’.
My husband and I had our own wedding in the beautiful Hunter Valley (Lovedale Chapel & Tamburlaine Organic Wines) and I am so excited to explore many more venues our region has to offer.
I genuinely care about making sure your ceremony is personal and a day you will remember forever.
Want to know more?
I would love the opportunity to discuss your ceremony. It’s important you connect with your celebrant and that’s why I offer an obligation free meeting for you to see if i’m the right celebrant for you.
Looking forward to hearing from you soon!
