“Married love…… a unique form of love … where the love for one another is bound together on a spiritual and physical level.”
As a registered Marriage Celebrant, my aim is to create an intimate and loving ceremony that will reflect how you feel for each other.
We will work together to establish your preferences, wishes and ideas. Through the use of readings, poems, rituals and words, your special ceremony will take on a deep and meaningful connection and your guests will remember. Its about creating memories for your personal circle of life.
I will design a gorgeous ceremony for your special day, one that you and your guests will love. My style is warm and friendly, with focus on creating just the right emotional tone for you. I offer several styles of ceremony, the Registry styled ceremony and the Classic styled ceremony.
Either one is meaningful… its all about your preferences.
Registry styled ceremony
Thinking of a small, intimate wedding? OR Just want to run away and elope?
All you need is love ………(plus….fulfilling the legal requirements), 2 witnesses and ME!
I offer a registry office style ceremony for couples who want a short but meaningful ceremony, with a small guest list. If you would like a small gathering at a home, a back yard, a local park or one of the many wonderful and spectacular spots around the Sunshine Coast, I will travel to your chosen location within 20 kilometres of my home. (Or if you prefer your wedding further afield, we can negotiate a small travel fee.)
To get the ball rolling, just remember you do need to give one month’s notice – by meeting legal requirements and completing the legal form ‘Notice of Intended Marriage’. I will need to sight evidence of date and place of your birth and proof of your identity with photo identification.
This is a no frills affordable ceremony….you get, just me and your ceremony…. BUT, you’ll still get my extensive experience, professionalism and unique style. Please check my fees page for what is NOT included in this style of wedding.
I have discount prices for a mid-week ceremony (Monday to Thursday) or my standard Weekend rate (Friday to Sunday) .
Classic Style Ceremony
Maybe you would prefer a more classic style of occasion – be it traditional, informal or something a bit more alternate…..together we can create a ceremony that fits your relationship, your style and your ideas. As always it’s a choice for the couple to make. The ceremony may be where sky meets sea and mountains, or in a rotunda on the Pumicestone Passage, or a place that has special meaning…. Its just a matter of ‘where’!
The Classic styled ceremony is family friendly, and is popular with all ages. The ceremonies can be traditional, stylish, informal, discrete, theatrical and fun, or even flamboyant! Maybe include a ritual for deeper meaning to the ceremony. Rituals add emotion and drama to a celebration. Examples of rituals include a Sand Ceremony, Handfasting, Candle Ceremony, Wine Ceremony, Blessings of Rings. For families that are being blended, each child can have a special role in the ceremony by pouring a coloured sand into a main vessel, or placing a different coloured ribbon on their parents joined hands, or each lighting a candle. There are many ways to use ritual and symbolism in your ceremony…. just use your imagination!
Whatever the way…. It is YOUR way….my role is to guide you through the options and legalities.
