Looking for ideas to help you plan your wedding ceremony?

Something old, something new, something borrowed…

When I became a celebrant I did an extensive search for wedding ceremony ideas which might be of interest to my clients.  My ideas list is not exhaustive, however most people can find some ceremony ideas in my collection that are of interest to them. If you choose to book with me as your celebrant, I will use my expertise and intuition to weave your chosen ideas into a meaningful and coherent ceremony that authentically reflects your values and beliefs as a couple or family.

In planning your ceremony you may wish to draw on traditional symbolic and ritual elements – whether they be a reflection of the cultural or religious traditions you were raised in or a borrowing from elsewhere. Here in Australia we have a rich multi-cultural heritage available to inspire us – so whether you’re sticking to tradition or departing from it, there are plenty of different ideas to choose from.
