Wedding Ceremonies

Every individual is unique and creating a perfect wedding can be a challenge.  Your special day can be anything you want it to be, but most importantly it has to reflect who you are as a couple, encompassing your personalities, ideas and values. There are many options in choosing where and when to celebrate a civil ceremony.  To ensure that your dream is achieved, I have created a simple set of guidelines. I have a wide variety of ideas to suit your theme.  The ceremony can be as long or as short as you desire according to your preference! A short ceremony can still have a lot of significance and substance. Whether this is your first marriage or your fourth, whether you are young, or walking down the aisle later in life, I am confident that I can take you, step-by-step, through this exciting, tender and serious time of your life. You will see from my testimonials, that my clients warm to and appreciate my relaxed and friendly manner.

 

Simplicity to Top End

I have sample wedding ceremonies that I can adapt to suit you. You can choose a traditional style, or something more alternative.  You can include a particular reading, poem or a favourite piece of music that is meaningful to you. Whatever your budget, we will work together for a truly memorable day. Pleasant venues can be found outdoors, in either parks or restaurants, or people’s homes.  You may already have somewhere in mind or I would be happy to recommend some locations. Depending on your background, cultural ceremonies, for example, a Chinese Tea ceremony can be incorporated in the wedding. Whatever your dreams are for your special day, I will individually design a ceremony for you– whether it be a formal and elegant affair or a more casual and relaxed event. You may opt for something more intimate and simple, with just your two witnesses and me as your marriage celebrant.

Your Story

Everyone has a story to tell.  Your wedding day should be memorable so I encourage couples to consider including some personal history into the ceremony:  details such as how you met; things you’ve introduced each other to; the proposal and qualities you admire in each other.  All of these things make for a great wedding ceremony that you and your guests will remember for a long time!

Budget Weddings

For couples who are on a tight budget, I can tailor a package that suits. I have performed many intimate weddings with just two witnesses present.  If finding witnesses is a problem, I can also provide them for you. My fee includes all the required paperwork, registering your marriage, organising your Marriage Certificate and a complimentary commemorative copy of your ceremony.  A budget style wedding will still include the meaningful words you wish to express to each other.  More importantly, you will still receive the same quality professional service.

International Visitors

If you live outside Australia and want to get married in Perth, it is simple to arrange.  I am able to organise all the legal paperwork and assist with on-the-ground requirements, such as booking an appropriate venue, in preparation for your special day.
