Celebrant For All Occassions 

It's all about you!! 

Your wedding ceremony should be a true reflection of you as a couple and it is your way of saying to your guests that you are committing to each other for life, in a way that truly represents the both of you. As long as we include the legal requirements, the options are limitless!! Whether you want a simple ceremony or something more extravagant, we will work together to ensure that it is exactly how you want it to be.


PA System 

I have a professional, compact PA system and microphone setup that I can utilise on the day to ensure that all of your guests can hear the ceremony clearly. I am also able to play the music throughout the ceremony if required. 


Symbolism during the ceremony 

Below are a few of the options that are available to you that we can include in the ceremony if required. All of these add another level of meaning for the commitment that you are making to each other.   

The Unity Candle

The bride and groom each take a lit candle and simultaneously light a third larger "unity candle." 

They may blow out their individual lights, or leave them lit, symbolizing that they have not lost their individuality in their unity. You may also have your unity candle personalized with your names and the date, allowing it to be a keepsake from your wedding.

Wine Sharing Ceremony

This is the first drink as a married couple and represents your first act of sharing. This is quite a popular ceremony and presents the opportunity for you both to toast each other on your special day. Alternative options include the sharing of non-alcoholic drinks so that children can also participate

Butterfly Release

This is a very special and touching ceremony and can be tied to the North American Indian legend of the butterfly. Obtain a butterfly for each member of the bridal party, and then release them towards the end of the ceremony.

Dove Release

Here you can obtain specially trained doves and release them during the ceremony. This can symbolise the beginning of your new life together adding a lovely touch to any wedding ceremony…and yes they do return home.

Lovelock Ceremony

This is a simple ceremony, where the bride and groom take a single key and connect two “lovelocks” together, symbolising the everlasting joining of two hearts. The couple then dispose of the key in whatever creative way they can imagine. This may include tying it to a helium balloon, melting it down or even burying it. Other variations can be included to involve the children
