  2. Choosing your Celebrant • It is my wish to make your day special • I offer a warm, friendly, professional service to my clients • I am a very caring and compassionate person • My promise is to make your wedding day memorable, heartfelt, unique, authentic, sacred and special. • Together we can create a perfect ceremony just for you • Please be assured that I respect your privacy. I ensure that all my computer communication to you is password protected and all documents are kept secure in my office under lock and key

  3. The First Step • Marriage is a huge step for anyone and planning your wedding is a busy time. • I have developed my Marriage Celebrancy Service to make it as easy as possible for you to plan your wedding. • My Marriage Celebrancy Service starts with a free initial meeting between myself and the two people to be married to decide if I am the right celebrant for your day • One of my legal obligations at our first meeting is to give you a compulsory brochure entitled “Happily Ever…before and after….”.

  4. Marriage Formalities • There are some legal formalities that you must do to comply with The Marriage Act of 1961. • Notice of Intention to Marry form • Legal documents of identification • You are required to have two witnesses who are over the age of eighteen. • I will be able to advise you of these and other formalities involved in marriage. • Sometimes interpreters are required at the initial interview and the ceremony itself.

  5. Ceremony Options • There is no one single ceremony structure. Some legally required parts of the ceremony need to occur in a certain order, but you have many options for the non-legal aspects • I can provide you with many different options for Introductions, Readings, Poems, Blessings and Rituals, and help you with choices to create the perfect ceremony • Ceremonies normally take approximately 20-30 minutes to complete, including the signing of the register and certificates • Music can also play a major part in any ceremony, expressing how you feel today and how you will feel together - music that reflects you • Whatever style of wedding you desire, I will help make your day a wonderful, special time so that you will look back on this day in years to come and truly appreciate that it was indeed a Magic Moment!

  6. Sand Ceremony • This ritual is also known as a unity sand ceremony • It symbolizes is the inseparable nature of marriage • The Sand Ceremony is usually part of the main wedding ceremony and is supposed to be their first task as a married couple • During the wedding sand ceremony, the couples take turns pouring from their individual vases into the central vase, creating a layered effect • Finally, they pour the remainder of the sand into the vase at the same time so that the two colours combine and cannot be separated, symbolizing their unity in marriage • Three variations on a wedding sand ceremony: - religious - parent’s - children’s

  7. Candle Ceremony • The candle ceremony or commonly known as the Unity Candle ceremony • The bride and groom each take a lit candle and simultaneously light a third “larger” unity candle, symbolizing their unity and commitment to each other • There are many variations to this ceremony which can include immediate family members or every guest invited • The unity candle ceremony is non-denominational, which means it has no religious significance

  8. Rituals and Blessings • There are many rituals and Blessings that can be a major part of your ceremony. They can add a layer of richness and meaning to any ceremony. • Here are a few more ideas to consider: - rose ceremony - wine or tea ceremony - circling • Together we can find that ritual, blessing that speaks and resonates with you. • Here are just a few examples of the variety that we can choose from: • Celtic Blessing • Buddhist Blessing • American Indian Blessing • Indigenous Blessing • Hindu Blessing

  9. Thoughts and Views • Your feedback is important to me, as I want to make your day just perfect • I appreciate the time that you have taken out of your busy schedule • There are no shortcuts to a well prepared, successful ceremony
