Blessings for a (miracle) baby ~ A family celebration at home. Darch, Western Australia, January 2010.
“Absolutely fabulous the ceremony was above and beyond our expectations and was a truly beautiful day. Ishara provided guidance but also allowed us and other guests to provide input without hinderance. The ceremony did not feel rushed. Time was not a factor we and all our guests loved the day. The ceremony even converted a very religious catholic mother who thought it was great. Thank you Ishara and we will be back to you soon for another ceremony ”

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.
The ceremony was beautifully written and was everything we wanted it to be. We loved the suggestion that we include the members of our family in the ceremony as it made the day even more special, as family is very important to us.
A sword and broomstick wedding. Golden Ponds Function Centre, Baldivis, Western Australia. April 2011.
It was great. Everything came together very nicely on the day.
The Mumma Blessing was a fabulous way for women to show on an emotional level how much they care and to display enthusiasm for such a special event. It was fun to participate in and enjoyed by all, especially the Mumma to Be. Women were all impressed by your open manner and accepting insights to both birthing and motherhood and how there is not just one way to do things – greatly appreciated!!
Lots of love to you and thanks for a fun night!”
Coralie was in the final weeks of her first pregnancy when her friend Rebecca approached me about holding a Pregnant Mama Blessing Circle for her. Coralie was also intending to have a baby shower which would be a larger social affair, and the idea of the Blessing Circle event was that it would be a more intimate circle of women friends, including her own mother. The Blessing Circle was held in one of Coralie’s friends’ houses, and all the women who came contributed to the cost of the evening.
I would recommend Ishara in a heartbeat!! Her warmth, professionalism and knowledge assured us right up to the reception, and her tailor made service reflected this the whole way through.
She listened to our ideas and offered a lot of helpful and well thought of ideas, as well as positive experience. Adding her warmth and serenity to every word and deed, she captured us perfectly and added magic to our moment.
Thank you Ishara, you truly are a blessing xox
We were absolutely delighted with the ceremony that Ishara prepared for us. She was thoughtful of our desires and wishes and she conducted the ceremony with love and professionalism. She made it very special for us and it was just what we hoped for.We could not have asked for better.
Ishara made planning our ceremony easy, she was attentive and understanding and created a ceremony that was beyond perfect for us. She was professional and calming throughout the whole process. We would highly recommend her.
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.
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…

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.
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.
As your celebrant, I want you to have the opportunity to say farewell in a way that is meaningful to you.. When one recalls a family member’s death, the circumstances of their death fades and the memory of the funeral and final goodbye is what remains.
I am a lesbian, and I welcome clients who identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender or intersex, whatever your ceremony needs.
