Celebrate your Love with a beautiful, powerful ceremony that is uniquely you!

Commitment Ceremonies

comm_250I have experience with Hand-fasting, sand ceremonies, unity candle ceremonies and creating unique commitment ceremonies that reflect you and your love and commitment.

Thankfully, Marriage laws in Australia have changed, enabling all couples to express their love through legal marriage. Yes. Same sex marriage is now legal (December 9, 2017).

However, you may choose a commitment ceremony to renew vows from a marriage previously not recognised in Australia or to give you the freedom to hand fast or commit to another for a set period of time without the legal commitment. A commitment ceremony is a powerful expression of our love and affirms our chosen direction.

You may also choose a commitment ceremony to give you the freedom to hand fast or commit to another for a set period of time without the legal commitment. A commitment ceremony is a powerful expression of our love and affirms our chosen direction.

I take time to listen to you and with creativity, experience and passion help co create a unique, meaningful and beautiful ceremony that reflects you, your love and your life. Your ceremony will be a unique, personal, meaningful, beautiful reflection of you – your needs, values and personality. I ensure that your ceremony will be professionally conducted, lovingly crafted, expertly performed and given the proper attention it deserves.

A free no obligation consult and quote either in person or over the phone is offered for all ceremonies. The fee is determined by the complexity of the ceremony, the number of people involved, location and day of the week. However, the prices below will give you an indication.

Officiating your ceremony is the culmination of many hours of preparation. Preparing a commitment ceremony usually takes me between 12-20 hours which is included in the price.

I will meet with you at least once to learn about you both and your love and to help us create the perfect ceremony to reflect you and your love. We can meet at my place or yours or at a mutually convenient place, we can even meet on Skype. To create your unique and personal commitment ceremony we will be in contact as often as needed by phone, email, skype or google hangouts. If you want a rehearsal, onsite or elsewhere we will rehearse together and ensure we have contingency plan for adverse weather. I am happy to wear appropriately themed clothes to fit with your ceremony.

On the day, I will be there at least 30 minutes prior to the ceremony to set up and check equipment. A PA system will be provided if required. I can also bring along a table, chair and cloth for signing the certificates. A beautiful Commemorative Booklet of the ceremony will be produced and given to you to keep. You will also receive a Commemorative Certificate of Commitment on the day.
