Commitment Ceremonies

A COMMITMENT CEREMONY is perfect for those couples who choose not to, or for whatever reason, are unable to be legally married, however wish to declare their love for one another in front of family & friends. 
Commitment Ceremonies are also the perfect alternative to Marriage for Same Sex Couples (who under current Australian laws are not permitted to Marry). Couples exchange rings & make vows... everything they would in a normal Marriage Ceremony, including signing their own 'Vow of Commitment' Certificate. It's a beautiful way to take your relationship to that next level!
Rituals & readings may be included within the ceremony to give it that personal touch or enable others to be actively involved on the day.
Commitment Ceremonies may also be performed when there are children involved in a new relationship. The step-parent makes vows & promises to take care of the child/children as if they were his/her own.
My fees & services include the following:
-         Up to three face to face meetings: The first meeting we will we discuss your ideas & requirements, special requests etc, for the creation of your ideal ceremony. The second meeting will be the rehearsal, & the third is the day on which the ceremony takes place.
-        The writing & creation of a uniquely personal ceremony, which reflects your values, feelings & promises to your partner/child.
