What my clients have said..
“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.”

“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.”

“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.
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
“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.”

Thank You Ishara.
We loved our whole experience….. from the cute little caravan office to the amazing ceremony. The way Ishara helped us through the process of choosing the elements we would like to include in our ceremony with the suggestion cards and her knowledge of the rights/ ritual and customs made it very easy to create our fantastic wedding ceremony and her very Professional and confident delivery of the ceremony was fantastic. We could not have asked for more, our guests all commented on how moving, expressive, witty and different our ceremony was. It was a lovely touch to get a copy of the ceremony in with our marriage certificate.
A huge big thankyou from our guests and ourselves for making our day so beautiful.

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.”

“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 ”

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.
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.
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.
