Anna Parker Byron Bay Celebrant
Hello my name is Anna and I am an authorised marriage celebrant who delights in creating ceremonies that are beautiful and inspiring celebrations of love, full of heart. I am based in Byron Bay, northern NSW Australia. I am also a director of the Sophia Wisdom Centre.
These ceremonies will reflect your uniqueness and acknowledge the fact that your love has grown wings and now aspires to a higher ideal. I will help you create a relaxed and intimate ceremony, one that is perfect for you. This will be a celebration not only of your existing relationship, but also an honouring of your desire to move to a greater depth of intimacy and also what you want for your marriage.
You will be given the guidance you need to prepare your vows so that this becomes a special and beneficial process for both of you.
Special symbolic gestures and rituals that honour the sacredness of the occasion can also be included to add that extra flavour and make the occasion even more memorable.
James and I would like to thank you for being part of our very special and memorable day, our wedding day, and we appreciated how you adjusted and were flexible. when we had to change our location at the last minute. We liked the way you organised the ceremony and we particularly enjoyed how smoothly everything unfolded. Each time we look at our wedding video, we feel so blessed and we were glad and happy that you were part of it. J and P Sanderson
Thank you so much for helping us create a magical ceremony and officiating our marriage. You did a fantastic job of keeping us on track, giving us extremely thoughtful examples tailored to us and ensuring we were comfortable with everything down to the last word. You just seemed to make everything easy. And our guests thought our ceremony was just superb - both catholic and non religious! Our wedding was just spectacular and it will certainly by remembered for the rest of our lives. Ben and Em.
Funerals, Memorials, or Ashes Ceremonies
I am also a Funeral Celebrant, assisting people to travel through the dying, death and funeral experiences with care, guidance and dignity. My focus is on celebrating the life of the deceased while encouraging active participation of family members and friends to help them through the grieving process. I uphold whatever the spiritual beliefs of the person would have been and weave them into the ceremony .
I also offer many other ceremonies besides Weddings, amongst them are:
Commitment or Wedding Ceremonies between same sex couple. There are a wonderful diversity of relationships and I offer ceremonies for this diversity with the same joy, honour, respect and delight that I would any other ceremony.
Commitment or Wedding Ceremonies between couples who are already married or who don't want to sign the legal paperwork. The ceremony and process are much the same just without the legal documents.
Vow Renewals, Recommitments, or Anniversary Ceremonies. These ceremonies are an opportunity to enjoy and celebrate your relationship, often with your family now on board.
Namings and/or family Ceremonies. Deepen the bonds with your child, by celebrating your child's place in your family and in humanity.
