What my clients have said..
Neil and I found Ishara wonderful to deal with for our wedding, she is so down to earth and very organised reminding me of things I hadn’t even thought of. The lead up to the ceremony was very stress free with Ishara and the actual ceremony was more beautiful and appropriate for us as a couple than I could have imagined, she listened to everything that was important to us and incorporated it all into a lovely ceremony.
Thank you so much Ishara for marrying us in a ceremony we will treasure forever.
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.
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.
We always wanted a very intimate outdoor ceremony with close family and friends.
Ishara’s experience, knowledge and recommendations helped us get there. She not only made suggestions on potential wedding locations, but also helped us with our wedding vows, making sure that those were align in tone and kept in secret until the moment we made our promises to each other on the ceremony. From the moment we messaged her enquiring assistance, through the time we first sat down with her till the end of our ceremony she showed dedication and professionalism. We could not have asked for a better celebrant and a more joyful ceremony. Would highly recommend her
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.

It was great. Everything came together very nicely on the day.
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.”
Ishara went way above and beyond to fulfill our needs. Ours was a little difficult situation where we were waiting for my husband’s parents visa to be approved from India so they could attend our wedding in Australia. My husband and I wanted to keep our wedding experience very simple and non-traditional way. We kept Ishara in the loop from the get-go as to what our situation is and the kind of uncertainty we are into to finalize the wedding date.
Ishara not only understood our situation but also had been continually supportive and made every possible effort to keep us going forward and provide her best availability when we were ready to finalize our wedding date.
Finally, we were able to go ahead with our wedding on May 28th and our whole experience met our expectations. Thank you for your services, generosity, and kind support, Ishara.
Sincerely appreciated by both of us and our families!

“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 ”

Ishara was extremely welcoming, friendly, helpful and professional..
Our wedding was great. We had friends helping with ceremony and Ishara spoke to them all and prompted them when it was their turn to speak everything went very smoothly. It was a very simple low key ceremony, just the way we wanted it.
“We didn’t know much about wedding ceremonies. Ishara showed us basic templates and different ideas. She made it very easy for us to make our wedding unique and personal.”
“We both really enjoyed our wedding it was just how we wanted it. Lots of our guests have said what a lovely ceremony it was and some commented it was the best wedding they had been to. I wholeheartedly recommend Circles of Blessing. Thanks Ishara. We had a great day.”

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!
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.
