- Renewal of vows
- Same sex commitment
For weddings there are certain legal aspects and words that must be included within the ceremony and cannot be changed.
I will guide you through these requirements but you will be amazed at the many options that can be included within your ceremony to make it uniquely yours.
- SAND CEREMONY
- HAND FASTING
- UNITY CANDLES
- RING WARMING
- DOVE RELEASE
- VOWS SAID TO STEP CHILDREN
- ETHNIC INCLUSIONS
- SPECIAL BLESSINGS READ
The ceremony is limited only by our imagination.
So long as the legal requirements are met the options for your wedding are endless.
If, after our meeting, you decide to have me as your celebrant, I will supply you with a folder to take home containing four sample ceremonies for you to read through.
A Traditional Ceremony / A Modern Ceremony / A Sand Ceremony / and A Hand Fasting Ceremony.
Within each one of these ceremonies you will see clearly the words that must be by law included.
You will also have in each ceremony different wording, different poems, different readings, different vows, which gives you an enormous choice to select from if you wish to include any of them within your own Special Ceremony, or simply give you an idea of how we can create together the unique and perfect ceremony for you.
It’s all possible for you on your Special Day.

For Australian citizens
An original birth certificate must be produced and sighted by the celebrant as well as photo I.D.
If you don’t have your original birth certificate you can apply for it from the Registry of Births Deaths and Marriages in the state you were born in.
An Australian passport is not, in it’s self, enough.
If born overseas
A birth certificate is preferred, but if impossible to obtain then a valid overseas passport showing date of birth and place of birth, IN ENGLISH, must be produced. If using a birth certificate photo I.D. is also necessary.
A cancelled passport is not acceptable.
For both Australian and those born overseas
If previously married the divorce certificate / Final dissolution of marriage needs to be sighted by the celebrant. As is a death certificate if applicable.
