Same Sex Ceremonies

As a registered Civil Union Celebrant and Civil Marriage Celebrant I am delighted to welcome marriage equality in Australia. It will be great to have the exclusionary words removed from wedding ceremonies and to use the same legal words for all couples who want to celebrate their partnership with marriage. I look forward to conducting ceremonies for many same sex couples. Civil Union ceremonies are also still available in the ACT.

From the planning to the end of the event your big day should be a lot of fun. Your personalities and ideas are key to making your special day truly enjoyable and memorable.

I can help make your ceremony unique. You can contribute your own words, vows, music, and personalised readings, and we can shape the event together. It may be as formal or informal as you like.

The ceremony is your declaration of love before your guests. My job is to make it easy and fun for you, to give you confidence that the ceremony will run smoothly with attention to presentation and a professional approach to the legalities. Ultimately, you will be sure to have a unique and memorable ceremony.

Ours was the first same-sex ceremony that you had conducted. We could not have been happier with the outcome. This sentiment was reflected by many of our family, friends and relatives who were also present – a truly wonderful day. We’ve had nothing but really great feedback about the day, and the ceremony in particular. We understand it was new territory for you in some ways and the day went off perfectly. Thank you Alice.

Flexible modern approach

Some people know just what they want and like to design their own ceremony. Others prefer me to write their ceremony. Some choose a short simple ceremony in a park or in my courtyard. I promise personalised, professional, service and advice to suit your requirements. I am available for consultation throughout the planning process. I would love to help you design a unique and memorable ceremony.

Please contact me to discuss ideas for your ceremony.
