What my clients have said..
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!
“We liked that Ishara had such a calm presence, weddings are such stressful events so to have some with a professional and peaceful presence was a bonus!!
Guests were delightfuly suprised by the meaningfulness of ceremony especially in light of our choice to not be ‘legally married’. The handfasting part of the ceremony was an
especially lovely touch.
Ishara put together a ceremony that we felt represented us and the overall experience was very special.”

We have found Ishara very much friendly and helpful from beginning till closure of ceremony. We are grateful to her that she has been guiding and advising us from her rich experience. She understands the value of marriage and she gives valuable advise to new couple (like us) irrespective of culture or tradition.
Thank your so much Ishara for helping us in creation of our marriage vows.
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 knew from the moment we decided to get married that I wanted Ishara as our celebrant.”
“I have seen her hold a few different spaces and she always made them feel completely safe and special. I was thrilled when she agreed to be our celebrant and travel the distance to our ceremony space in Margaret River. She helped us plan our day perfectly and I couldn’t be happier with it.”

Every person who came to our wedding ceremony loved how Ishara created a warm and friendly atmosphere. She was truly amazing and looked beautiful as well. Ishara incorporated rituals such as hand washing, four elements, handfasting and ring gifting. Our guests told us it was really interesting to watch and totally ‘us’.
Most of all we wanted to create a happy and fun vibe. Ishara was the perfect choice for us- a meaningful personalized ceremony which captured our fun loving spirits.
From the start to finish, Ishara was very informative and friendly. She attended to our needs with sincerity and respect. We were glad she got to experience our Chinese Tea Ceremony. She made our day special, and although the weather was very unpredictable, Ishara handled our requests well. Thank you.
Thank you Ishara for your professional service at our baby son’s naming and blessing ceremony. You were warm, engaging and respectful to our wishes . Your suggestions and advice were greatly appreciated and you helped us shape a very moving and memorable ceremony. Our family and friends enjoyed the day as much as we did . Thank you for working with us to create a beautiful memory for us to always cherish.
“Our day was made so much more special thanks to Ishara. She helped us plan the ceremony, giving us lots of ideas while incorporating our own. We have had many compliments on how lovely our son’s baby blessing was and we are very happy with how the day turned out.”
Baby Naming Ceremony held on 28th March 2010 at Southern Districts Senior Citizens Center, Willagee.
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.
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.
