Various Wedding Style Ceremonies
wedding day is one of the most important days of your lives, and it is as
special and individual as you are. This is the one day when you have the
opportunity to publicly express your love and make your own special promises and
vows to each other.
is my pleasure to help you plan the perfect wedding to reflect your
personalities and wishes. As a celebrant I will provide you with a wide range of
wedding may be Traditional, Spiritual, Cultural, Romantic, Funny, Informal or
The ceremony can be as long or short as you would like. Below is a basic ceremony.
Your Marriage Ceremony
is a basic framework which is common to most/all marriage ceremonies. The
freedom to express your love, dreams, hopes and joys with each other together
with your friends as witnesses is yours.
the groom and his groomsmen wait in anticipation for the bride and her party to
arrive, music is setting the atmosphere of the ceremony. You may use a CD, USB
with your favorite song as I have an excellent PR system. You may like to have a
musician/s to play music. Whether it is a harp or guitarist, or string music
there will be a setting for the procession.
will welcome guests and family on your behalf. You may like to
include any remembrances of friends or family members not present and
make any special remarks about those whom have travelled a significant distance
may like to consider asking a friend or family member to read a poem or reading
you have chosen. I have many poems and readings in the book I will loan you to
read. Perhaps you may have a special poem or you may like to make one up.
Address and Personal Story
is all about you, your personal story from the time you met to till now.
is about remembering the important moments and what you would like your guests
to share with you. You may share your dreams, hopes, values and where you both
would like to venture in the future together.
46 of the Marriage Act 1961
is a mandatory legal statement stating the Law of Marriage in Australia which I
will read. This introduces myself and states the law.
vows are a very significant part of the marriage ceremony. The legal requirement
is that you include these words – ‘I call upon the persons here present to
witness that I, (full name)… … …, take you, (full name)… … ….,
to be my lawful wedded wife / husband.’
creating your vows, remember what you are saying here is your own personal
wording of promise to your partner. To
make your vows truly personal you may like to discuss a foundation for your
promises and then each write in your own words. These may be kept as a
surprise for each other and sharing them only with the celebrant until
the ceremony! Or you may prefer to work on them together.
