Wedding Ceremony

Couples travel from overseas, interstate and within the state to be married in the Nelson Bay/Port Stephens area.

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 each other.

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.

Renewal of Wedding Vows

This 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 each other.



Namegiving Ceremony

This 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.
