CONGRATULATIONS on your engagement and upcoming marriage
Isn’t it wonderful when you find that one special person that you connect with in every way and choose above all others to journey through life’s adventures together. The ‘one’ you overwhelmingly adore and want to be with all the time. This is a very exciting time for you both as you prepare for the moment you will make promises to each other in front of your nearest and dearest and say “I do”.
So, you’ve decided on your date and it’s time to start planning your dream wedding day. I’m pleased you landed on my page and I would love the opportunity to hear your plans and discuss any ideas you already have for your ceremony. My official role is to solemnise your marriage and ensure your union is legally binding. However, my passion is to craft a meaningful, romantic and memorable ceremony that is uniquely YOU.
Your day ~ Your way
Marriage is one of life’s great events and your wedding day should be everything you want it to be. Whether you want a traditional or customised bespoke wedding ceremony; or a simple intimate service without all the fuss; or you plan to elope and need just the legals only … I would be honoured to be your celebrant and create a ceremony to suit the tone of your day and your personalities. I’m here to guide you through lodging your ‘Notice of Intended Marriage’ and completing all your legal paperwork for registering your marriage with the Registry of Births Deaths and Marriages.
The most popular choice is a traditional or customised bespoke wedding ceremony. I’ll give you a Love Story questionnaire to complete. This helps me get to know you as a couple and is where the fun begins. I’ll provide you with resources including poems, readings, music selection lists, ceremony rituals, symbolism and ideas that you might like to include in your ceremony. I’ll also give you guidance on composing your personal vows to express your heartfelt thoughts, promises and love for each other. You’ll have everything you need and together we’ll design a ceremony that is completely unique for you and about you.
