I Am Here To Serve You

My name is Christine Skicko, I moved to Australia from the UK in 1982, I have always lived in the Latrobe Valley, firstly in Moe, then Trafalgar and now Newborough.  I have two sons who are both fine young men and of whom I am very proud.

I became a celebrant as it is something that I have always wanted to do, I love celebrations and I can think of nothing I like more than helping others achieve their perfect day.

I have always worked in an Administration/Customer Service environment and As a result I am organised and efficient and I love talking to and meeting people of all ages and backgrounds. I am used to keeping to time restraints and nothing fazes me, I can remain calm and focused and I will help you stay the same.

I am a well-known face in local theatre having performed in many musicals and plays throughout Gippsland.  Some of my favourite roles include Anna in The King & I, Dolly Levi in Hello Dolly,  Phyllis Stone in Follies and Golde in Fiddler on the Roof. Some of my favourite dramatic roles have been Judith Bliss in Hay Fever, Vera in Brassed Off, Melissa Gardiner in Love Letters  and Belinda Blair  in Noises Off. I have been lucky enough to win quite a few awards for my performances and love every minute of it.

Recently I have been Directing productions more than I have been appearing onstage and I discovered that I love this aspect of the production too – I especially love working with young people and guiding them to strive to be the best that they can be. I also design costumes for these productions and particularly love designing for period plays and musicals as I can tap into my creative side and love of history.

I have appeared in a number of TV commercials and on local radio as well as compering the local Carols by Candlelight and announcing at many dance concerts and Eisteddfods.

I have a warm, friendly nature and I can’t wait to meet with you and chat about your special day.

Best Wishes

Christine Skicko – Civil Celebrant
