Two witnesses over the age of 18 are required to sign the Marriage Register and Certificates.
Includes completion and lodgement of all legal paperwork, plus:
– Marriage preparation including topical modules.

– Discreet, confidential and caring approach.
– Sample Ceremonies to be used as a guide.
– Examples of vows and declaration of intent.
– Complimentary commemorative Marriage Certificate.
– I am available to you by email or phone should you have ANY questions, however trivial they may seem to you.

I also provide a battery-powered sound system that can be used in all conditions ensuring all in attendance hear every word.
RENEWAL OF VOWS
“Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. Love does not demand its own way. Love is not irritable, and it keeps no record of when it has been wronged. It is never glad about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. Love will last forever”. Author: Paul from Tarsus, Turkey.
Renewal of Vows is possibly the most wonderful thing that you could ever do for your partner. It celebrates the fact that you have grown together and most importantly, that you are both still in love! Affirmation or renewal of vows will keep the relationship alive. It is always great to remember and to celebrate beautiful times. Celebrate your wedding anniversary by inviting friends and family (and/or) your children to share in a special ceremony to reaffirm your wedding vows.
Your story is unique – it is only the couple (bride and groom) who can bring together the appropriate message.
My role as your celebrant is to assist you with ideas and to deliver your message with sincerity.
BABY NAMING INFORMATION
“He brought them to the man to see what he would call them, and the man chose a name for each one.” Author: Moses
This is a beautiful and special event. Let me name your new precious baby in a serene and tasteful ceremony. An event that you will remember forever! Is there anything more beautiful, sacred and exciting than the arrival of a new soul?
A new baby brings new life, sweet innocence, simplicity and love. The new arrival is indeed a time for celebration.
Presenting the little person to family, extended family, friends and the world is a perfect time for dedication, ceremony and celebration!
A personalized ceremony is available to you including specific readings, opportunity for family members to speak and a time to dedicate the child into the family.
The loss of a loved one is a very difficult time. I am available to assist you in leading a service to celebrate and commemorate the life of your loved one. This can be performed in a church, funeral chapel, crematorium or in a place of your choice.

The aim of my service is to:
- Give thanks and celebrate with shared memories from the family
- Mourn your loved one’s passing.
- Seek comfort for your time of grieving.
- Say your farewells.
