Memories to last a lifetime



How often have you said aloud, “I would love someday to have a dream wedding”?  Now you can stop dreaming about it and have that wedding!
I offer you a friendly and relaxed service that is tailored to suit each individual couple. My services include advice on your ceremony and help to make that special day a memory to last a lifetime.

My years of experience and dedication will ensure your wedding dreams come true.


Renewal of Vows

Renewal of Vows can be held at any time. You may like to celebrate your 10th, Silver, Gold or other significant wedding anniversary in this way which allows you to involve children in your celebrations so they can see Mum and Dad celebrate their love with each other and their family. It brings to mind a special ROV I officiated on Hayman Island. This couple held a more traditional large wedding ceremony as requested by their parents, then 3 days later, they held a more intimate ceremony on Hayman Island (just the two of them) expressing their love for one another in the way that was meaningful for them.


Commitment Ceremonies

These ceremonies are held when you want to declare your love for each other without completing any legal paper work. I treat them the same as any marriage ceremony and you will receive a special Commitment Certificate. There may be a reason you have chosen this: eg you may have married interstate or overseas and want to have a special celebration with your family and friends.


Baby / Child Naming Ceremonies

These are held when the Parents wish to express their joy to family and friends of the new arrival in their family. They also ask guardians to be there for the child if and when they are needed. A lovely way for a child to look back on this day is to have a special tree and ask all present to write a wish for the child and place on the tree. (Later on this tree can be planted and wishes placed in a special box (memories) for the child to look back on). A lovely lock ceremony could also be done. Ask me if you are interested in any different ceremonies to celebrate the Naming of your Child.

Choosing Your Celebrant

Choosing the right marriage celebrant is an important part of planning your wedding. It's important to work with someone with whom you feel comfortable, who suits your personality and gives you the best advice. On your wedding day your celebrant will perfect your day by being well presented and by speaking clearly.


Choosing Your Ceremony

Your ceremony should reflect your values, your spirituality, your personality and above all, your love. My aim and promise in working with you is to create the most memorable ceremony possible. A ceremony that reflects your unique circumstance, a ceremony that captures the excitement of loved ones, the laughter and the tears of joy and a ceremony that sets the tone for the whole day.


What Next?

Our first step will be to meet and get to know a little about each other and outline your vision for the event. We'll talk about how you might like to include friends and family in your ceremony, special locations and themes as well as other elements that might reflect your cultural heritage.
