Why choose me to be a vital part of one of the most momentous days of your life?
For starters I believe that ceremony and ritual and words are important. I believe in marriage (& I ADORE weddings)
Having done it myself I completely understand why you wish to make a public declaration of your love & commitment to each other (& any children that you may also be committing to)
I understand the desire for a successful long term relationship (and conscious effort required at times to make it so)
I have chosen to build a life with someone.
I am fortunate. I chose well. He is wonderful.
Are you deeply commited to cultivating a life with someone?
Do you want to publicly declare your love & make conscious & meaningful vows to each other?
Yes, I do Commitment Ceremonies-regardless of your gender & sexual orientation.
Aside from the legals, the process is pretty much the same as planning a wedding ceremony. I still get to know you & ask probing questions regarding your relationship & we create a ceremony together that suits you, that befits your love & commitment.
You have the freedom to do WHATEVER you want because there are no laws or rules to follow. When the laws change (and they will) we will have laws to follow, but for now we can create ANY type of ceremony you like!!!

As we are bound by the MARRIAGE ACT, there are laws we need to follow & before I can marry you there are specific things we have to do.
A Notice of Intention to Marry (NOIM) must be completed and witnessed at least one month prior to your wedding. It can be lodged with me up to 18 months in advance of your wedding.
