Looking for a celebrant? Someone with the presence and experience to help you, and your guests, feel comfortable and relaxed on your special day?
My clients describe me as warm, friendly, respectful and knowledgeable. They tell me that I was a reassuring, steadying presence as I guided them through the entire process from planning to delivery of the ceremony. If this sounds good to you, please get in touch and let's have a chat.
“Ishara was very forthcoming, approachable and friendly and responded effectively to our needs.
Ishara has an amazing skill in compiling a truly unique naming ceremony. She provided resources of different religious and spiritual teachings so that the ceremony became meaningful to our family. She also espressed thoughts and feelings that we just mentioned in the interview but were not really aware of that this is relevant for us to express.”
The ceremony gave as a new depth and connection to our friends who attended the naming ceremony of our child.”

Ishara was very professional and attentive from our first meeting.
She agreed to a venue change for the ceremony without a problem.
On the day she conducted the ceremony very well and all our family and guests commented on what a happy wedding it was.
We would like to congratulate Ishara for making us feel comfortable and relaxed on our special day and would recommend her highly for any event.
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.
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.
I think Ishara offers a very unique service: a very non commercial, non traditional, simple approach. She puts a lot of thoughts in the ceremony. Her text is lovely and well written.
I like her office, her calm and relaxed attitude. She had a very open mind attitude towards what we wanted and made helpful suggestions. For me her office felt like a haven after being confronted with expectations from some relatives of a “big production” wedding.”
My wife and I would like to thank Ishara for all of her help and assistance on and before our wedding day. During meetings with Ishara, everything was so clearly explained and followed up with detailed emails covering all that was required. We asked for advice on a number of items and value the feedback received. The wedding day was a great success and we have had a lot of positive comments from all of the guests. I can highly recommend Ishara and can’t thank her enough.
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
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!!
I asked Ishara to help me with my wedding. She provided us with practical suggestions and gave creative input into how we could augment the ceremony with our own personal symbolism.
Being a blended family and marrying later in life (our respective children were 10 and 12 at the time); we wanted them to be part of the ceremony and honour their place in our lives. Ishara helped to create a beautiful moment where we both gave vows of love and dedication to our step children. This made an impression on all our friends and family and helped to unite us as a whole, healing the disparate aspects of our pasts. At all times Ishara was very sensitive to both our points of view.
On the day she helped to ‘hold the energy’ and to weave the magic we wanted for our wedding.
One gift of advice that I cherish from Ishara is that ‘you are not alone in marriage’. She encouraged me to seek the council and support of friends and family in times of worry and made a personal commitment to be there for ‘us’ if we were finding life difficult. It is the sense that marriage is an ongoing experience that changes and grows as people do. Making a vow in public to be married together, strengthens the bond between the couple, giving them a tangible point of reference. It is the significance of this bond that I believe Ishara communicates so well.
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…
