With Carol’s knack for natural etiquette and professional presentation across all her celebrancy services, that skilfully calm competency in front of a crowd comes from years of ‘treading the boards’ – from her early days training and grooming staff on corporate standards for major airlines, department stores and international hotel chains to a later career styling and hosting major events including designer-label fashion shows in front of thousands (remember Jennifer Hawkin’s infamous catwalk wardrobe malfunction!). Fast forward to television and as a former panellist on Network Ten’s long-running agony aunts-style talk show Beauty and The Beast
, you’ll still find Carol presenting both live on-air and pre-recorded infomercials on free-to-air television. She also remains a regular commentator on Sydney radio, particularly when it comes to community issues.
After many years also working with the team behind the Miss Universe annual pageant, Carol’s commitments gradually shifted to the greater community and what ultimately motivated her to pursue local politics. Currently serving as a fifth-term elected Councillor for the Sutherland Shire, she is a core supporter of issues concerning age care, youth and community inclusiveness. Carol has also served as Sutherland Shire Mayor over two terms (1987-1988 and 2011-2012).
Today, Carol Provan continues to offer her professional experience and services as a civil celebrant to help enhance any ceremony. Backed by mandatory qualifications (including Certificate IV in Celebrancy), appointment from the Australian Attorney-General’s Department, and a member of The Australian Marriage Celebrants Incorporate, Australia’s leading Marriage Celebrant Association, Carol is also a nationally-registered Justice of the Peace. So, why not book an appointment today and find out more about how Carol can help tailor a bespoke service for you.
