Your wedding day will be an exciting, emotional and memorable occassion. I am committed to providing a fully professional ceremony to make your wedding day a special day that will begin your lives together as husband and wife. I have provided the local community with 1570 marriage ceremonies and hundreds of baby-naming and re-affirmation ceremonies. I bring experience, style, imagination, and guidance. Whether your idea of a marriage ceremony is traditional, simple, casual, or formal (even an elopement!), I can help you create it.











I can suggest some of the best locations in the north coast area, whether they be private establishments, beaches, lookouts, parks, waterside, lighthouses, and especially designed reception venues. I have performed weddings all over the Northern Rivers area, including Ballina, Byron Bay, Lennox Head, Alstonville, Lismore, Kyogle, Evans Head, Bangalow, Casino, Coraki and all areas in between.

THE FIRST STEP

Contact me either by phone (0438 206601) or email advising me of the date, the time and the location, to establish whether I am available. We can then arrange an appointment to complete the Notice of Intended Marriage and discuss the legal requirements and the ceremony.

The legal requirements are that you must be over 18 years old and free to marry.

You will need to provide me your Birth Certificates, and if you have been married before, evidence of your divorce or death of a partner.

You will also need two witnesses who are over 18 years old to witness your marriage.

The Notice of Intended Marriage must be completed and witnessed by a specific person and I must receive this at least one month and one day in advance of the wedding date.

These preliminary arrangements can be made by phone and post if necessary, but it is preferrable to make the personal contact so we can establish a rapport.



YOUR CEREMONY

I will give you several ceremonies to choose from and will encourage you to change the words to suit your own values, and to add anything your heart desires. Well almost anything! There are a few legal requirments here too that must be incorporated in your ceremony. You may wish to have family and/or friends participate in your ceremony by way of sharing readings, singing, ring bearing etc, as this will make your day more personal. Music can play an important role too.

So if you want an experienced, professional celebrant conducting an extravaganza, or an intimate and personal ceremony be it a wedding, naming of your special child, or maybe you would like to re-commit to your present spouse, contact me to make it happen.
