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.
What my clients have said..
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.
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
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.
“Thank you so much for helping us to celebrate the birth of our son Morgan. His Blessing and Name giving ceremony was very special. It was such a memorable day for everyone.”

“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.”

“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 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.
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.

“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 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.
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…
