Congratulations on your decision to Wed! Your love has brought you together and now is the time to take the next step.

 

How It Works

Make sure you call or email with your ceremony date and time to ensure
I can meet your needs. I will organise our first visit to go through your requirements, my services and to confirm your booking. Once booked we will begin with the Notice of Intended Marriage known as the NOIM. This document must be lodged with myself no less than 1 calendar month before your important day.

Once the paperwork is started we will meet again to discuss poetry, music, rituals such as wine, sand, warming of the rings, flower giving, candle or other ceremony options that you may wish to include – I have many samples.

  • 1-3 meetings are the usual to plan your special day.

  • A fun questionnaire will provide me with information on what is important to you.

  • I will be guided by your wishes whether it be an intimate or large ceremony.

  • The draft of the ceremony will not be finalised until you are happy!

  • The Rehearsal is an important part of the ceremony whether large or small ensuring there is no confusion on the day.

I will provide a professional and elegant ceremony which includes:

  • Support with Legal Paperwork

  • Rituals, Music, Poetry and Vows

  • Table and Chair

  • Sound System and Microphone

  • Rehearsal

  • The Ceremony

Weddings

 

Renewal of Vows

This ceremony is for married couples that wish to reaffirm their marriage vows in a unique way that is personal to them. There are no legal documents to fill in.

A wedding anniversary may be the reason, or a reaffirmation may be wanted after a challenging time in their lives. There are many reasons for wanting to exchange marriage vows again and these can be done at any stage throughout your married life no matter how long you have been together.

Marriages have many joyful memories and some of these may be included in your ceremony.  You may wish to include your children, music from your wedding or start all over again with a completely different approach.

 

How It Works

We meet to discuss your special day and I will find out as much information about the two of you as you wish and create a ceremony that is unique.  A Renewal of Vows Certificate can be signed by both you and witness’ but has no legal bearing.

This is a day that will be remembered and a part of your marriage journey that will be treasured forever.

Commitment

Commitment Ceremonies are when two people that love each other wish to share their love with family and friends through ceremony without going through the legalities of marriage.

The ceremony can be celebrated in the same way as a wedding or in any style of your choosing.

Naming

A Naming Ceremony is a special moment and is a welcoming of a baby, child or adopted child into a family.  It is an alternative to a church christening and the child is usually welcomed either in the family home or garden.

 

This celebration recognises the importance of the child’s role in the community and the sharing of responsibility of raising the child with family and friends to adulthood that is a time honoured tradition.

 

Your joyous event can be celebrated with music, readings, poetry and in a style of your choosing.

 

A Naming Certificate may be signed with witness’ but has no legal bearing.
