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.
Thanks for being our celebrant on Sunday. You made our wedding a very memorable occasion and put together a fabulous ceremony that incorporated all the elements we wanted. Although we only had a tiny wedding, we wanted it to be meaningful and you certainly achieved that. I highly recommend you for anyone looking for a professional and intuitive celebrant.
We found Ishara sensitive to our attitude to the wedding ceremony but prepared to bring up new ideas that we hadn’t thought of ourselves. We were very glad to find the ceremony so meaningful even though informal. We were impressed with the amount of research Ishara did to provide suitable readings.
I would certainly recommend Ishara as a celebrant as she is sympathetic, tactful, and adaptable, and in our experience can make what was expected to be a fairly straightforward ceremony into a momentous and touching occasion.
Mary and Charlie were getting married again, to each other, after a divorce and 20 years of living independently
on either side of the globe. Charlie had stayed on in Western Australia to follow his career as an archaeologist, while Mary had gone back to her native England to live and work as a freelance editor. With children and then grandchildren connecting them, Mary and Charlie had maintained a friendship across the years, and were ready to try living together again…
We were super thrilled to have Ishara as our wedding celebrant. From start to finish she made us feel comfortable and supported throughout the process. We felt like she really understood our needs and with the pre-meeting we had, put together a unique and meaningful ceremony. Ishara’s warm welcoming nature was well appreciated during the rehearsal due to pre-ceremony jitters. We had the most amazing ceremony, one we will have fond memories for years to come. Thank you Ishara for your professionalism and creating such a beautiful ceremony for us both!
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.”
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.
Ishara helped my wife & I renew our vows recently after 10 happy years of marriage and also carried out a naming ceremony for our 2 year old daughter.
From the initial contact via email; the planning meeting; the emails back and forth to arrange the details and finally the ceremony itself, Ishara worked out exactly what we wanted and provided it to us in a sincere, friendly and professional manner.
Ishara’s experience and thorough knowledge of all the different possibilities allowed us to personalise our ceremony and make it something special for our family and friends who attended. Something that we will never forget. Ishara was able to provide many items to complement the ceremony and add to the experience for the day.
Finally, when our next baby is ready for a naming ceremony, we won’t hesitate to contact Ishara to help with that too.
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!!
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.
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…
