What my clients have said..
I think you did a marvellous job and I wish you all the best of luck in your future ceremonies.
Our kindest regards,
Rachael and Anthony
Ishara recently performed a naming ceremony for my two young children,
Samson and Matilda. The ceremony was beautiful and heartfelt, and
Ishara spoke with resonance and composure.
The ceremony was put together in such a way that involved all who attended. A friend remarked she had attended other naming ceremonies that were just “someone at the front talking.” Ishara surpassed this by including not just myself and Andy, (my partner), but also grandparents, great grandparents, aunties, uncles and friends.
We met with Ishara on two occasions before the ceremony. She took great care in finding out how we wanted the ceremony to proceed, by providing various prayers, quotes and suggestions. Her manner was professional and warm.
Everyone who attended remarked on how unique and moving the ceremony was. My sister in law also commented that Ishara “let everyone have their space.”
Thank you Ishara for providing this service for us, it is an occasion that we will remember and cherish.
Thank you from both Siyi & I.
The service you provided us was truly helpful and professional. It was such a fun night and beautiful ceremony. You took care of all the paper works and guided us all the way to the end. We cannot thank you enough.
We do highly recommend Ishara to anyone and for any occasion. Once again, Thank You!
Thank you, Ishara, for a wonderful ceremony! We felt that it was perfect for us and we received a lot of compliments from our guests. We would happily recommend you as a marriage celebrant!
“Thank you, Ishara, for designing and delivering a beautiful, meaningful and magical wedding ceremony for us yesterday. Miranda and I honestly loved it, enjoyed it and found it really spoke for our love and our commitment to one another. And our guests enjoyed it immensely, too – even the Rotto garbo, uninvited, but who waited to empty the bins till we’d finished!
Miranda and I both agree that it simply couldn’t have been better. Thank you so much Ishara.
Blessings to you from us.”
Ishara did a fabulous job with our commitment ceremony and Julie and I were extremely happy on the day! Thank you so very much for helping us with the planning process.
From start to finish Ishara made my family and I feel comfortable. I especially was overwhelmed and as soon as she introduced the ceremony and made us feel the wind and take in the surroundings I felt at ease. Ishara is such a calm and beautiful spirit and we loved her being at the naming ceremony. Guests commented on how nice and professional she was. I hope to have her as our celebrant for our wedding. Thank you very much Ishara for such an amazing day it wouldn’t have been as special without you.
The service was perfect. We didn’t have time to do a rehearsal but Ishara was so calm and guided us through the ceremony. It was an amazing day and it couldn’t have been more wonderful. Thank you!!

Thank you for conducting such a beautiful and very personalised naming ceremony for our daughter, Jessica on the 19th January 2014.
We had such positive feedback from our family and friends, that it was the first naming ceremony that was truly unique and actually celebrated the arrival of Jessica into our community, rather than just the other boring ‘stock and barrel’ naming ceremonies that they had been too. Your attention to detail and suggestions during the planning process, as well as happily incorporating our ‘Rose Ceremony’ request was really appreciated and truly made our beautiful little girl’s day special. Thank you 🙂
Kind Regards, Richard, Bernadette and of course, Jessica
We really enjoyed and appreciated having you as our celebrant. The ceremony was beautifully worded with just the right amount of spirituality, our friends and family didn’t get lost half way.
So you’re planning to marry? Congratulations! The basic legal process for getting married in Western Australia is really quite simple, and I would be delighted to guide you through it.
Maybe you are an unconventional kind of person. Or maybe you are in a non-traditional kind of relationship. Or maybe you are not ready to make it legal at this stage. If you would like an alternative wedding – a handfasting, a betrothal or a commitment ceremony, or some other form of ceremony to celebrate your union – you are in the right place…
Many cultural traditions welcome a new child into her circle of family and community with a ceremony of some sort. I will work with you to create a unique ceremony reflecting your family values and beliefs and drawing on symbolic elements from any traditions which appeal to you.
I have been involved with designing and facilitating meaningful ritual and ceremony in a variety of contexts for over 25 years. In 2008 I became a registered marriage celebrant out of desire to share the benefits of my personal experiences with the power of ceremony with others in my community.
I am a lesbian, and I welcome clients who identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender or intersex, whatever your ceremony needs.
