Couples travel from overseas, interstate and
within the state to be married in the Nelson Bay/Port Stephens
I have a thorough knowledge of Port Stephens
and will assist the bride and groom in choosing the location
for their ceremony.
My aim is to conduct your ceremony in a dignified
manner, and in a way that reflects your relationship toward
I offer ceremonies for you to choose from,
or you may wish to write your own. Ultimately, the final content
of the ceremony will be to your complete satisfaction.
I take pride in making your wedding ceremony
a very personal one, with wording to include those who are
very special in your life. This could include one or both
parents, children, or other ways that personalise your ceremony.
Whether your ceremony is large, or has just
2 witnesses present, your wedding is very special, and great
care is taken to make it a memorable occasion.
This is your day, and as your celebrant, my
aim is to allow you the freedom to plan your wedding ceremony
in an unrestricted way, provided that all aspects of the Marriage
Act are complied with.
The wedding ceremony may be conducted in the
home, on a boat, in a garden, at a resort, in the sand dunes,
on a mountain, on the beach. The choices and styles of weddings
are only limited by one's imagination.
is a ceremony where the couple look back to their wedding
day, re-live special moments of their married life together
and make their wedding vows to each other again.
Another very popular ceremony is one that
acknowledges special anniversaries and again looks back at
special times during the couple's married life.
This is the perfect opportunity for family
and friends to share a very special occasion. If the couple
have children (whether young or adult), they have the opportunity
to share the expression of love that their parents have for
is a ceremony that celebrates the birth of the child and welcomes
the child into the world of family and friends.
The ceremony acknowledges the difference between
a namegiving ceremony and a baptism/christening, being that
the church ceremony is a welcoming into the religious way
of life, whereas a namegiving ceremony is a welcoming into
the everyday way of life.
Again, this is a ceremony that can be made
a very personal one with words that include very special people
within the family, or special friends.
The ceremony includes the presentation of
the Namegiving certificate and certificates for the Godparents/Mentors/Guardians,
together with a commemorative candle.
