WEDDINGS

Congratulations on your engagement and commitment to marry.

Planning your own wedding can be one of the most exciting and creative things you will do in your life. Be assured I am here to help make it just that little bit smoother for you as your Marriage Celebrant.

The role of a Marriage Celebrant is to really listen to what you want for your wedding ceremony. I can also assist you with ideas that might be unique to you and your family and ensure everyone is part of your special day.  A civil marriage ceremony gives you the complete freedom to create a wedding ceremony that reflects your feelings, personality and beliefs. 

 

Your wedding ceremony will be personalised to suit your individual needs, and presented in a professional, relaxed and friendly way. Let me work with you to create the wedding ceremony that you want, that is personal and special to you both.

 

Your Ceremony can be a formal occasion or more casual, include a ritual or religious element or have a theme. The choice is yours and I am there to help.  

 

Together I will help you create a ceremony that will be meaningful for you, and one your family and friends will remember forever. I would consider it an honour to be part of your special day.
