Adam Townsend, Celebrant
I successfully completed the Certificate IV in Celebrancy with the Gordon Institute in Geelong, Victoria finishing in November 2017, and gained approval to conduct weddings within Australia as a Commonwealth Registered Marriage Celebrant in January 2018.
I have embarked on being a celebrant as my career after a long history within the Public Sector and Emergency Services. I have a range of qualifications that include small business operations which compliments my decision to operation as a celebrant
I live in Traralgon, and have been in Gippsland since 2010, after moving from Melbourne where I grew up and worked
I am a very proud father of 2 children, Hope and Bayleigh, as well as having adopted a greyhound, "Shadow" who is 3 years old.
Having had a strong history in serving the community with a range of emergency services that spans in excess of 25 years. I volunteer with CFA as well a volunteer committee member of the Victoria Police Blue Ribbon Foundation - Gippsland Branch, with a strong connection as my father died in the line of duty as a Police Officer in 1980.
I am a member of the Australian Federation of Civil Celebrants, something of which I am proud to be associated with a professional body in which the code of ethics is something I am a strong believer in which allows me to provide services with professionalism, dignity and respect
