About Steph

Who is Steph?

Hi there!
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 (awww!) for nearly 6 years and am a Mum to two beautiful children.

Why did I become a Celebrant?

When my youngest was 5 months old I decided I wanted to start a business just for me, doing something I loved. I loved everything about planning my own wedding (I may of cried at 1 am after it because it was over) and wanted to reignite this passion. I enrolled in my celebrant 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!
